Question about Yard Machines 158cc Push Lawn Mower #11a 034f200

2 Answers

Yard machine 139cc will only run short time with choke

Runs with choke out.. dies if pushed in. Will only run a short time then seems to flood. After that it will continue to leak fuel from under the air filter somewhere until the tank is empty... crazy. Almost like pressure builds in the tank and won't stop... yet the mower will not run.

HELP... and thanks

Check the float and the adjustment screw on the bottom of the carb. Usually if the float stays up it will continue to leak gas and also will only run on choke. Spray some carb cleaner in there and try to get rid of any debri also try changing your air filter or cleaning it

    Your carb is right under the air cleaner next to the exhaust. If you removed the aiir cleaner you will be able to spray carb cleaner in there. If you are still having problems I will look for a manual for you to download.

Wont start


Your problem may be in the kill switch. To check, spray some starting fluid into carburator directly and pull start. If it sputter runs for a few seconds then dies chances are the kill switch is choking engine trottle as a built in safety feature. If you have to hold a bar down while pulling cord, that disengages the switch. You should be able to see if cord extends. If it's kinked I would replace the entire cable. It's cheap and relatively easy, just pay attention to how you take the old one off. B&S engines are very basic and very easy to fix.

Crazy question but where is the primer button on the yard machine 139cc 21" lawn mower???????


The primer button is usually on the carburator of your machine. Most of the time on the side of the carburator , but sometimes on the front of the carburator. GOOD LUCK.

Model 54 m runs only on choke for a few then dies


Change out old fuel,change in line fuel filter if there is one - you may have one in the tank, remove and clean carburetor passages - be careful with the gaskets - if you do not tear them they can be used again - make sure screws are tight. You might have to make adjustments to your mixture screws if applicable on the carburetor,clean air filter and plug. Recommend the new E3 spark plugs.

Have you checked the choke that it is off after you get the engine started,the black smoke is definitely from the choke, if you take the carb off and check that the needle closes when it should,as one can easily do an adjustment by bending the float/tab,rgds

Check the carburetor see if all the bolts are tight.check the cylinder head gasket take off plug wire make sure it is away from plug so it wont start. Pull start rope can you hear air being pulled into the engine? if so the head gasket has ruptured or head bolts came lose. Ensure all parts are tight. Ensure fuel lines are not clogged. Check fuel level.

Try rebuilding the carb. It might be your float is messed up. You can also get some carb and choke cleaner and take the sediment bowl of and clean everything in it. Give extra attention to the float and needle valve. They might have some build up that won't let it work properly.

Also your gas cap might not be venting properly.

MOWER RUNS FIVE MINUTES THEN STOP AFTER IT WARMS UP


Check your automatic choke ... a cold mower needs more choke, and the auto-choke should release when the motor warms and runs smoothly. If the choke is sticking, the motor will die when it gets warmed up, then start again after it cools down.
