On a walk-behind mower, the oil drain plug can usually be found on the underneath side of the deck. The drain plug usually has a square head.

SOURCE: can't find oil drain plug on eager-1 mower

Disconnect the sparkplug andf ground it. Turn the push mower on it side and scrap away all the grass from under the deck and look for the plug. If you cannot find one, drain the oil out from  the fill tube into a pan, buy turning it onto it's side into the pan.

SOURCE: craftsman eager-1 lawnmower will not start

Hi, The first thing I always check for is fresh fuel (less than a couple of months old) old unleaded may well be fine in your car but low compression engines fitted to garden equipment need fresh fuel. next thing to check is that the choke flap is closing fully, dont rely on the position of the control lever, remove the airfilter cover and see that the flap is fully closed, if it's cracked open just a little bit it will stop engine starting ( unless the filter is really dirty) another thing to check is that the blade is tightly secured, on direct drive mowers the blade acts as a flywheel. did you hit an obstruction the last time you used it, if you did you may have sheared the flywheel key(poor spark on points ignition or good spark but timing out of sync on electronic ignition. hope this helps, regards Tony (England UK)

I have a self propelled lawn mower and the the belt that propells the wheels is loose, do I need to replace it or is there a way to tighten the tension.


Cathy, there is a way to adjust belt tension on some models whether it is by the cable or a slotted bracket where the idler wheel is mounted, depends on make and model. If you have your manual check in it for belt adjustment. Could be stretched belt, stretched cable, worn/oil on pulley, seized tensioner, stretched/broken spring on tensioner,etc.

Push mower revs too high with throttle just open (or a little higher with the throttle opened more). Revs stay high until throttle reduced to cutout point.


are you sure you have the right spring fitted?? and have you tried adjusting the spring tension? you can do this by bending the arm that the govenor spring attaches to as seen in this picture

Carburator


There really isn't any carb adjustments on the newer lawn mowers anymore. If your machine isn't running properly it is usually due to a dirty carb, dirty coil contacts, old gas or a bad spark plug

I have a craftsman LT1000 model # 917-275351.It cuts crooked and I don't have an owners manual.How do I adjust it to cut evenly


2 ways to adjust deck level, the obvious is the ground wheels. The other is adjustment rods that hold the deck to the under side of the frame, usually 2 rods one on each side and maybe 1 in the front of deck/frame

Why does speed control lever return to neutral when going forward ?


this model uses a series of groves cut into mower body to maintain the transmission gear/direction , it's held into groves by a spring just under the cover , if this is broken a replacement can be gotten from sears (part# 164X39) to replace it , it should take at least five pounds of force to move shift lever out of grove to next gear , if not then your shift spring is loose or broken

Craftsman 14 hp 42'' cut mower brake problems


Well the adjustment is in the rear of the tractor above the axle, their should be 1 9/16 clearance when the parking break is depressed, if it's not here than adjust it until it is making sure to tighten down the locknut when completed. Otherwise just replace your pads via craftsman's website. They provide breakdowns for all their units via the model/serial number of your tool.

Intek 6.5 HP in a Craftsman 21'' mulcher/bagger --loss of power--


No - 6.5HP is enough to cut 3" at a fast walking pace. I would suspect a blown head gasket.

My son has a 3 year old Craftsman lawnmower with a B&S 6.5HP engine. The engine sounds like it is running slow. It starts real easy and runs smooth but seems to be running slow. Looks like there's no...


There is a governor adjustment on it.Find the governor spring coming from the carburetor the link will lead to a governor spring hooked to a metal tab,by bending the metal tab it will pull the spring tighter making the engine run at a higher rpm
