SOURCE: Honda lawn mower, self propelled mechanism not working

check the mechanism first before changing the gearbox its possible that the cable might jump out from the pulley or the cable is worn out or its possible that the gear on the tire is worn out to if not then that would be the time for you to change the gear box it would be hard to change it if you don't have the right tools to work on it if you know how everything work its not that hard to replace it just make sure were everything goes memorize the parts before disassembling cause that would be you guide to reassemble it...goodluck

SOURCE: lawn mower keeps dying

Remove gas cap. If mower now runs without stalling, your problem is the vent in the gas cap is blocked. Replace the cap. Common problem!

SOURCE: oil change in yard man lawn mower

Some mowers are designed to drain oil out of the dipstick tube. remove dipstick and tilt the mower to allow oil to run out into a drain pan. 2/3 rds of a quart or 20 oz is what to expect.

SOURCE: yard machine lawn mower won't start

Several questions here...

1. Is the oil serviced to the full mark?
The oil level sensor can cause a no spark condition because it grounds the ignition.
2. Is there spark at the spark plug? You can remove the spark plug and test for spark but if the plug is internally grounded it will show spark when removed but if it is installed it can still be defective. (Spark Plugs are cheap replace it)
3. Is the handle safety cable loose even when depressed? A bad safety cable or an improper cable adjustment can also cause a lack of spark.
4. Do you note gas on the spark plug or is it very dry? If the spark plug is dry try adding a splash of gas into the cylinder via the spark plug hole and see if you get a temporary / momentary start. If you do then you have either a fuel supply or carb problem.
Make sure the fuel selector is in the ON position.
5. If you suspect a fuel problem disconnect the tank feed line to the carb and see if there is fuel flow from the tank, No fuel flow no start.... then problem in the gas tank or supply line.

I will post this as a solution but will watch for any responses and continue to assist you if needed.

Thanks for using FixYa.

Lawn mower miss firing changed the spark plug. When started it's making a punting sound. What would be the solution?

Did you hit something with your mower? It sounds like a timing problem. The shear key may be dented throughing off your timing. The shear key is located between the flywheel and the top of the crankshaft. Remove the top cover to your engine and any attachments. Remove the flywheel. Check the key, I believe you will find your problem, a deformed shear key. Get a new one, replace all parts,and you should be ready to go. GOOD LUCK.

Brand new and cant pull recoil

You say brand new so I assume that your pull cord has tangled up somehow. Things happen sometimes for no reason. To fix and check, remove the top cover to your mower and any attachments. The recoil is in the top cover. Look at it closely and try to loosen the cord. . Replace top cover and your ready to go. GOOD LUCK.

The pull cord does not rewind properly

A lot of times the rewind will get crud in it. Try removing the engine cover and spray a good silicone spray behind the rewind pulley and pull the cord many times while doing this to work the lubricant in. Usually works.

Need to remove the starter on a Yard Machine 32hoe253869069

What kind of engine is on the mower? If its a briggs and stratton engine generally the starter is on the right side. The gear is covered with a plastic cover held on with a very small screw on one side and the other slides into the engine cover. The starter should be held on with two bolts behind the gear on top. They can be a pain to remove ( kind of a tight area) . the only bolts holding it on should be the two at the top of the starter/

Carbaeurator problems - 22" Yard Man push mower

That is the intake tube. You have to remove the rewind starter housing and the armature (what the sparkplug wire is hooked to) and unscrew it. IfI knew the engine model and type numbers, I could tell you the part number for the tube. They are located around the spark plug and stamped into the cover. Model-Type-Code.
