It is the cheaply made carburater that needs to be replaced with a new one. There is no adjusting the plastic junk.

Check the governer, its a lever that pulls the throttle plate from the engine side. Try manually overriding it (twist it open as the engine's running) and see if that does it.

5.5 Briggs & Stratton push mower running too loud


It could be the govenor spring. Get the model number, type and code and take it to a small engine parts store and get a new one. A new spring will slow down the rpm's and it wont be that loud. Make sure you remember how the spring was hooked up.

Let me know if this helps.

Briggs & Stratton Quattro lawn mower engine. Runs rich and unevenly. Suspect carb and have used sprey carb cleaner. Any suggestions??


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).
