Question about Mtd 22" Yard Machine Push Mower
The mower was given to me missing it's throttle cable . When I put in one I had it's somehow reversed . I.E. the sleeve plugs into a hole in a bit of angled metal and the cable with the "l" shaped end fits in the smaller hole of the adjacent housing which should move to allow the engine to operate until the handle at the other end of the cable is released BUT " no " because the "L: shaped end connection does not move , it's the part where I have the sleeve connected that does . I can't figure it out and the model # on the machine is gone . Any suggestions before I trash the thing ?
Is it the brake cable ? when you release it, it brakes the engine and stops running, make sure you zip tie the cable down securely to mower handle also.. try sears most of them are made by MTD

There should be 3 -3/8 or 7/16" bolts on the side of mower (where the spark plug is, there should be one) the other two will be just opposit of the two. Remove bolts and housing should be free.You might to remove any cables to free up any slack.

that's not a choke lever, it's used as a speed control on some models. the two springs are attached to the governor rod, which is attached to an "air vane" governor - on these engines, you need to keep the gas tank fairly full at all times, the dip tube on the carburetor rides up off the bottom of the gas tank, if fuel level goes lower than this tube, it won't pull any gas to the intake - from your descriptions, though, it sounds like the diapragm between the carb and gas tank has "curled". briggs had a service flash on the problem and since it's new, you should take it to a shop that does briggs warranty work - it should be covered under warranty

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/weedeater 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, You will first seat the jet screws and 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 do not forget to rate me, Thanks
Good Luck, I hope this helped

I understand that you are having a problem with you Yardman Lawn mower when you try to use the blade control handle it is not allowing your lawn mower to start. I have had this issue in the past and it required the cable to be replace as it was streching as you use the handle. The cables are not expensive and can be pruchased at most local lawn mower shops.
