SOURCE: Brand new weed eater lawn mower blowing white smoke.

Pull air filter see if theres any oil in it,make sure the oil isnt overfilled. Push mowers usually smoke like that if theyre overfilled,or tipped on thier side,if there is oil in filter simply take filter off,drain oil to correct level,and run it till smoke goes away. If none of this is the problem rings are probably shot. Weedeater is a cheap brand and theyre made cheap too,not made to last.

SOURCE: my craftsman lawn mower is blowing smoke out the

have a look at the air filter it may be blocked with dead grass causing it to run very ritch and burning up far more fule than you need to, it could also be the choke stuck on, maybe the cutter blade is blunt making it work very hard ,if it is then file it till its sharp again,or the worst thing it could be is the piston rings have worn out and its burning engine oil in witch case fit new rings in it,,,still winter is nearly here and grass dont grow much then do it?
ps, i have a sheep for sale? baaa!

SOURCE: Mower blows white smoke

Depending on how old is your mower, it could be broken rings in the engine, or just excess oil. I would recommend to check oil level first.
Hope this helps!

SOURCE: Change engine oil

Check underneath the mower at the bottom of the engine's crankcase and see if there is a possible plug of any type there. Be sure you lift the mower the correct way when tipping , typically with the control handles going down towards ground...not on its side.

Testimonial: "The lawnkeeper model doesnt seemed to have a drainage plug at the model as one would expect. I was advised by the manufacturer to tilt the mower to one side to drain the old oil!"

I stored my Briggs and Stratton Murray 4.5 Lawnmower at an angle and oil came out the exhaust.


Just let the mower sit on the level for a while. Then be sure to check the oil level before starting the engine. It'll probably blow some oil smoke, but then it should clear up and be fine. You should only tip your mower in one direction, ever. That is down on the handlebars; up on the front. This way, the fluids have no where to run. Also be sure the gas tank is not full or fuel will run out the vent in the cap.

I have an early 90's cub cadet rider and it was over filled with oil. Now it smokes and blows oil out the exhaust. Could over filling it cause this? If not are there any common causes of blowing oil


Yes, over filling can cause this. The fix for this is to put the oil level back to normal, and run your machine normally, until the oil residue burns back off. Some "side effects" may be fouling spark plugs and occasionally residue build up in the muffler, so, keep this in mind. Normally, though, everything goes back to normal. It's better to run the machine for a while than starting and stopping it, to allow the machine to get up to operating temperature and clean out the exhaust system.
