Did you turn the mower on end or over? If so change the air filter otherwise It sounds like the piston rings are worn out. Rings are cheep but unless its an expensive lawnmower I would just replace it.

SOURCE: won't stay running

Check the oil level. It may be overfull. If so, a carburetor problem may be allowing fuel to get into the crankcase.

SOURCE: push mower runs, starves, recovers, repeats

Sounds to be the float and needle needs replaced. The float raises the needle to let gas through the carb. If the float isn't working properly the carb starve for gas. If replacing the float, be sure to clean the carb to.

SOURCE: the mower starts runs very weak , for a few

i would try first of all replace the fuel filter and check clean or replace your air filter. Personally I think it is going to be the fuel filter that is clogging and causing this. And for little cost replace the plug and make sure it is gaped right.

Overfill oil


Sounds like the engine is tired. Blue smoke is oil burning. Hard starting is oil on the spark plugs and/or low compression. This also can be due to someone adding too much oil.
Sometimes, the carburetor Needle valve hangs u pa bit and the Crank case oil gets mixed with gas so now the oil level is high. Too much oil in a motor is bad too, that would cause theblue smoke too.

Model 917.370410 won't start


Sounds to me like this model is a POS. I also have this same model, purchased last August have used only 5 or 6 times , has the same symptoms: hard pull, puff of smoke, won't run , etc. Even brought this to an authorized dealer to get it to run, but then it only ran a couple more times, dead again. Does anyone know of any recalls fro this lemon? I can appreciate everyone troubleshooting , but you shouldn't have to tear apart a 5 month old lawnmower which will only result in your warranty being voided.

Engine smokes for a moment when i start cutting model YT1942T


Is it Blowing White smoke, if Yes then

Use the lawnmower's oil dipstick to determine whether the oil level is correct. Maintain the correct level of oil. If you've overfilled the oil, open the drain plug, and drain some of the oil into a waste container. Dispose of any excess oil properly. Burning off excess oil is undesirable. It can foul the mower's spark plug, piston rings, and other engine components and contributes to air pollution. If your mower's engine has not been overfilled with oil, but still is smoking, it may have stuck or worn piston rings or another maintenance problem.

Some maintenance shops offer a mower transport service. Check to see if this is available in your area.

I stored my lawnmower on an angle all winter. Yesterday when I tried to start it oil came out of the exhaust. Today it started with alot of blue smoke, of course. what's my next step?


Just make sure the oil level in the crank case is OK, then just run it. The smoke will burn off once the muffler heats up, but it may take a while. The smoke is annoying, and not all so environmentally friendly, but it won't do the mower any harm. Just because the oil leaked into where it wasn't supposed to be, it doesn't mean that you have increased the ability for oil to leak that way. Good luck, Al K

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.

Billows of white smoke when Toro lawn mower runs


You overfilled the oil. If the mower runs, just go ahead and mow grass until it runs the oil out of the gas tank. Or you can empty the gas tank and fill with new gas. White smoke is not a serious problem. Only a hassle.

17.5 h.p. b/s craftsman tractor oil pushes into carb. smokes bad!


Make sure it's not overfilled with oil.
if this is not the case, then you have excessive blowby, which is what blows past your rings when the air/fuel mixture ignites. there is only one explanation for this, faulty rings, and that's what it sounds like to me. the blowby forces the oil into the vent leading to the filter, and back into the cylinder, where it burns, creating blue smoke.
