I always replace the air filter if its a paper element, and even if its a foam element I replace it rather than clean it. That said, engine stumbling is rarely and air flow problem - but it could be, so having a new filter assures no air restrictions.

I would drop the carbuerator bowl. On the bottom of the carb, near where the fuel line comes into the engine, should be a nut. Removing this nut allows the bowl to drop off the carb. Some engines the bowl screws off, you will have to look at the bowl. Often the bowl has sediment or sludge buildup inside. Cleaning the bottom of the bowl can prevent that sludge/sediment from plugging the intake tube. Even on newer mower models this is a common problem, the gas line tubing interior breaks down and the inside of the tubing can start degrading - ending up in the bowl as sludge.

After cleaning the bowl, I would add one ounce of fuel line cleaner to a full tank of fuel and run the entire tank of fuel. This will clean any deposits or "varnish" from the interior carb parts. Doing this and the first step will assure your carb is clean and functioning.

If that doesn't help, then I would look at the spacing between the magneto and coil assembly. If you want to do that I'd like you to write down all the model numbers and serial numbers on the engine nameplate, that way I can give you specific directions.

Hope this helps,
Gregg

A lot of time when the small motors on these push mowers surge it is a governing spring that is weak or broke. It does not hold enough tension and causes the valve to fluctuate. I have fixed this many time for a relatively cheap amount (under $5).

There should be a drain plug on the underside of the mower deck. Raise that side of deck, remove the plug and drain the oil. Replace the plug and add new oil. Hope this helped.

It won't start. Jumped the battery. change selenoid and only have a click


Is the engine installed on a mower? If not, do you have a good ground connection? If so, try using a jumper cable to go from the positive on the battery to the terminal on the engine starter. If starter good and no other mechanical problems (i.e. broken connection rod), it should turn.

I have a gas Yard Machine Lawn Mower by Briggs and Stratton. I cannot keep it running and it is loosing oil. What do I need to do?


May be time for a tune up. Replace spark plug, air filter, change oil and sharpen blade. You may have some water in your gas. I would check to see where it is leaking oil. It may be the oil seal on the pto(bottom) side of the engine leaking and needs to be replaced.
