SOURCE: mower won't stay running
carb is gummed up. carb cleaner is the only thing that will help, Get it at walmart, spray can usually less than $3. Comes with a wand (straw) for spraying in small holes etc. Take the air filter off and look for small holes around inside the carb intake, stick the straw right in those and shoot, WEAR goggles or classes and rubber gloves, stuff is nasty. If it still won't run you will need to do some disassemble of the carb, if it has a bowl remove it and wash everything out with the cleaner.DO NOT however get the carb cleaner on the bowls top rubber ring it will wreck it. Be careful to put the float and needle and seat back as they were. The brass screw that holds the bowl on has some tiny cross holes in it, one strand from a wire brush works great for cleaning them out. Good Luck, Chuck

Is your primer button stiffing up when used or is it or does it remain sponge ? Or you may have something in the carb .Take the bowl off and clean it. Is your gas fresh or has it been sitting around awhile? Hope this helps you out.

IF THERE IS A PRIMER BULB ON THE CARB CHECK AND SEE IF IT IS HOLDING GAS IF NOT THE CHECK VALVE UNDER THE PRIMER IS BAD AND SUCKING AIR

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.

Sounds like you will need to clean your carburetor.
Sometimes you can get by with priming it a few times, and letting it
run a few times like that and it will flush the gunk out of the jets,
but most of the time you will need to rebuild the carburetor.
If the mower is over a couple years old, then I also recommend that you
buy and install a new carburetor repair kit, because the diaphragm will
get hard and that will cause it to be hard to crank.
When you clean your carburetor and remove the jet screws, count the
number of turns it takes to seat the jets from their original position.
That way when you go to put the jets back in, you know how many turns
they were in/out.
Please rate me, Thanks
Good Luck, I hope this helped
