SOURCE: weedeater lawn mower shuts off, but still has 3/4 tank of gas

On some mowers...if the gas cap vent is not working properly, it will run fine for about 15 or 20 minutes, start spitting and sputtering, if you loosen the cap, and let air back into the tank it starts running normally again.

SOURCE: Rear skirt on lawn mower flips under when backing up

Sounds like the skirt is too long for the cutting height you are using, either raise the cutting height or shorten the skirt. Remember it's a safety guard for trash kicked up when mowing!

SOURCE: Mower starts up great and then dies

If it's a briggs engine, sounds like you have water / debris in your carb fuel bowl. Using spray carb cleaner will only work if you remove the bowl and clean the carb jets. Also, you could have water in the gas tank as well. First, remove your air filter, then remove the 3 screws that attach your filter bracket to your carburator and mower. Take off your fuel line at the carb and drain all your gas into a clear jar. If it looks very yellow, cloudy, or see water in the bottom of the jug, change your gas. Using a half inch socket wrench, after gas line is disconnected, remove the fuel bowl and clean with carb cleaner. Also, examine the bolt you just removed. There are 2 jets in the side and one at the end. Using the carb cleaner, make sure they are clean as well. Use the carb cleaner extension tube to spray up inside the bottom center of the carb, where the bolt threads, to clean that area as well. After all this make sure ur float assembly is intact and reassemblt the bowl to the carb and reattach the the fuel line. finish bt reattaching the air filter support bracket makinf sure the gasket between the carb and the bracket isn't damaged.

SOURCE: lawn mower keeps dying

Remove gas cap. If mower now runs without stalling, your problem is the vent in the gas cap is blocked. Replace the cap. Common problem!

Front wheels on manual mower lock when pushing for awhile.

1 Locate the height adjustment lever on the inside of the left rear wheel.
2 Kneel next to the mower and push the left height adjustment lever toward the center of the mower. This will unlock the lever from the locking pin on which the height is currently set.

3Rotate the lever toward the front of the mower to lower the height of cut, or toward the rear of the mower to raise the height of cut.

4 Release the lever over the locking pin closest to the desired height of cut.

5 Repeat these steps with the adjustment lever on the right-side rear wheel. Be sure to set the right wheel lever to the same position as the left-side wheel's lever for an even cut.

How do you adjust push-reel mower

You don't! Usually. Some allow height adjustments only. Others do not! One height fits all! On a side note...I hope you are a youngster! Maaaan! those puppies really require more push energy than you'd think. And if you aren't a young'in I sincerely hope you got a "victory garden" patch or something small in area...WHEW! But...I have seen them for sale "new" as recently as 2 weeks ago. (I'd rather faint from trying to pull start my "self propelled" baby!

In need of a replacement handle

You should be able to buy the top section of the handle. What kind of mower is it and what is the model number? It should be on the rear of the deck.

I would push the prime button 3 or 4 times it starts then quiet

I took my carburetor off and blew it out with compressed air. Runs great now. Make sure to get all of it. Little screw on bottom has a hole in it too!

A part on my Scotts 16 '' Elite push mower broke

The number Jakeyjones gave is the customer service number. Call it and describe your problem.

As for the gear, I had the same issue. I called customer service and was told that there was a supplier material issue that caused some gears made last year to break more easily than they are supposed to. They are sending me 2 new pinion gears completely free of charge. These are the black plastic gears that engage against the orange wheels to make the blades spin. Make sure you don't lose the pawls (metal rectangular pins that go through the shaft to engage the pinion gears).

I called at noon eastern time today. The woman I spoke with was very helpful and knew exactly what parts to give me.
