Question about Lawn Mowers
After much mucking about, discovered that the washer on the fuel cap is missing. When the fuel cap is tightened it seals the fuel tank. Eventually the motor is starved.
It then starts and runs for progressively shorter periods.

Not sure what engine that machine uses but they are all similar, you need to prewind the reel before you slip the rope thru the hole, let the spring/reel pull the rope in.

Hi Mary, the air filter is on the carburator.There is a cover over it that just snaps off or is held on by a couple of screws. The carburator is where you can adjust for low or high speed with a lever or have a cable going to it to adjust the speed. It might also have a primer on it. That is the carburator. Remove the air filter take a look at it for dirt, grass clippings, etc. especially in the bends, clean it as best you can with air or tapping it on the ground. After doing that see how much is left on it. Air has to go through it so decide if you should replace it, they are not very expensive so I would buy a new one. Hope that helps you out. Best regards and good luck.
