Return the mower if possible for warranty repair or call MTD with the issue. MTD mowers typically are good quality and should run like new for a long time with proper care. Depot may give you a 1-800 number instead of customer service so before you load up the mower talk to them. It does sound like a bad valve seat or rings either one is not typical wear and tear.
Depends on what engine. IF it is Briggs and Stratton you remove the aircleaner cover and air cleaner element. Behind that are three little 5/16 bolts,remove those and the aircleaner mount comes off.Behind that are 2 3/8 bolts that bolt to carb to a brackett that holds it to the engine. Remove the fuel line by removing the clamps. Becareful with the throttle linkage. Some models of Briggs had a plastic throttle and it breaks easy,The wire linkage has a Z bend ,so hold the wire while moving the carb off the Z. Why would you replace the carb. Its simple to rebuilt. You local Yard Equipment dealer would probabley do it for $20 bucks instead of paying 60 or more for a new one. Its probably only full of dirt or water and the needle and seat need changed. Hope this helps.
It is possible that your engine is not getting enough air. You should have an air filter located on one of the sides. A cover should come off with a screw driver and the filter will probably be a spongy synthetic material. Wash it out with something that will cut grease (I have used Dawn), then let it completely dry (replacing it with any moisture will not allow air to pass). My bet is that your engine will stay on.
the flywheel key is broken.take the recoil cover off.take the nut off that holds the flywheel on.thake a hammer and lightly hit the flywheel oppisit side of key way.the fly wheel will come off.replace the key.replace the flywheel.replace the recoil cover and test run the mower.should be fine.let me know if this helped................

That is the intake tube. You have to remove the rewind starter housing and the armature (what the sparkplug wire is hooked to) and unscrew it. IfI knew the engine model and type numbers, I could tell you the part number for the tube. They are located around the spark plug and stamped into the cover. Model-Type-Code.
raise the front of your mower up and support it with something safe like a jack stand
take the blade off
when your blade is off locate the plastic cover covering the belt and remove
now remove the belt but first remove the plastic cover on top of the mower to uncover the gearbox that turns the wheels your belt goes from the engine pulley to the gearbox pulley
you will have to work the belt off the pulley while turning the motor by hand or the same when installing the belt.
to install belt reverse the procedure.
hope this helps some
You must first remove the cover assembly which houses the starter pulley. Pull the old rope completely out until it no longer moves. Hold the starter pulley and remove the old rope. Try to wind the starter pulley spring tighter if possible. DON'T LET GO. The starter rewind spring must be wound before installing the new rope. After winding the spring, thread the new rope through the cover and into the hole in the pulley. Tie a good knot in the end and let the rope wind slowly into the housing. Once you have this done, replace the cover, get the proper length of rope, thread it through the handle, tie a knot in this end and your ready to go.
