I have a Poulan push mower that after mowing in a ditch started making a loud noise and running rough. It almost sounded as if metal was hitting metal. The mower was vibrating more than normal. I checked...


If you are sure the oil level is correct then it sounds like it's about to die, unfortunately. A pine cone shouldn't cause any damage, but a large branch may do so. Was it smoking before you shut it down? The vibration could be caused from a bent blade. It could also be caused from a part breaking in the motor. I wish I could have given you better news!
Good Luck,
Jim

2010 model 20 hp Briggs motor. Fuel going through fuel line, but not going into carberator. Motor runs good for about 15 min, but after heating up this fuel problem starts. After cooling down for an...


Two things:
1 Is fuel coming out of the fuel line. Older mowers have old fuel lines and they tend to get weak and collapse went they warm up with engine heat. Replace the old fuel line.
2 deposits in the carb. take off the air cleaner, start it up and spray a good carb cleaner in the carb until the engine dies. Put some 'seafoam' in the gas and a little in the oil and put the air cleaner back on and start the mower and mow on FULL THROTTLE. this should claen out the carb. Yes the mower will run rough for awhile.

these two cheap fixes will solve 85 % of carb problems. GOOD LUCK

My husband replaced the diaphram on our Poulan Pro 5.5. After reassembly it will start and then die. He thinks he missed something when putting back together. Any suggestions?


To me it sounds like it is starting and running off the fuel from the priming. You could try after it starts to hit the prime bulb just before dying to see if you can keep it running. If that works then I would say that something is blocking the little holes in the carb. Could be trash in the tank. Anyway I would get some carb. cleaner (can get it at the store he got the diaphram from or from walmart back in the automotive chemical section). Then take the carb. off and clean it out blowing the carb. cleaner through all passages making sure that the cleaner comes out somewhere else. It is a good idea to have a face shield or safety glasses for this because the cleaner can come back up at your face and you do not want this stuff in your eyes. Be careful and good luck.

you may just need to remove the nut that holds the float bowl, and inspect the nut itself, half way up the nut should be a little tiny hole in the side.
use a bread tie stripped of the plastic covering and unclog this little hole, then replace the nut , when that hole becomes plugged the main jet cannot get fuel for the venturi pipe, thus the mower will start and hit a couple times then die immediately, that may fix the problem
