Question about Garden
Can some one give me instructions please on how to clean a carburettor on masport 600 st lawn mower
Remove your carb. have a flat clean spot to work. disassemble the carb paying attention as you do to where thing are. once you have remove the float bowl remove the rubber ring from carb or bowl(whichever it stuck to) remove your float being careful not to crush it or damage it. next remove the needle and seat if it didn't come out with the float. spray a quality carb cleaner through any and all ports or holes you can. some are dummy holes so expect some spray back (wear eye protection), blow carb out with compressed air only. no cloth or paper towel. reassemble in opposite order with new parts. make sure your float height is adjusted properly

SOURCE: Problem mowing my lawn.
I had the same problem and I already found those recommended solutions\ causes on the web:
1. The motor isn't on full throttle.
2. The blade is upside down.
3. The grass is too high when cutting it.
4. Overlap your cuts.
It helped my problem/ I hope it will help yours too!

Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly
- Remove the recoil assy. Depending on engine model you may hae to remove the air shroud with the recoil.
- Remove the broken rope assy from the spool by lifting the knot out of the hole and cut off the knot.
- Pull the remainder of the old rope out of the recoil spool
- Take the remainder of rope out of the pull handle
On the new rop burn the ends with a match. With wet fingers pinch the ends of the rope while hot/melted until it is the same size as the rope. Form a point on the ends
- Install the new rope in the handle by threading it into the handle and tie ONE small knot on the end of the trheaded through rope.
- Pull very hard on the rope until the new knot seats in the handle. Assemble handle.
- PREWIND the spool in the recoil until it stops winding. I.e. max out spring tension but do not over wind it or you will break the spring. Make sure NOT to wind it in the wrong direction or you will break the spring
- Back off the spool until the knot hole is aligned with the rope guide bushing on the outside of the recoil.
- Either use a C-clamp or a 2nd person to hold the pre-wound spool in place.
-Thread the new rope through the outer rope guide and into then through the knot hole in the spool.
-Tie ONE small knot in the rope and pull it HARD back into the knot hole until the knot seats in the knot hole.
-Release C-clamp or have 2nd person let go of the spool. The rope will rewind into the recoil assy.
-reinstall recoil/air shroud on the engine.
That should get you mowing again.

Your spark plug wire may be damaged, or your magneto may be too weak to generate a spark. You also have a kill switch wired to your magneto, and a condensor. I would start by cleaning the contacts of the magneto and then check the gap between the magneto and the flywheel. The gap between the flywheel and magneto should be .010". I would start by checking the kill switch wire for damage. If any damage is suspected, replace the kill switch. Next, I would have the magneto tested or replaced. Also, check all your ground wires for damage, or loose contacts.
When you are checking for a spark, you should have the spark plug installed in the spark plug wire as normal, but not installed in the engine. The spark plug base should be grounded to the engine while trying to start and checking for a spark. If there is a weak spark, this is probably due to a worn magneto.

There is a nut in the center of the blades. The
easiest way to remove this nut is with an impact wrench. If you don't have one there is
usually a hole in the disc where you can insert a screw driver to lock the blade from from turning and you will need a long handle ratchet in order to give enough torque to remove the nut. Once the nut is removed, the blade will slide right off. If you are doing this to sharpen the blades, you do not need to remove the blade to do this. Use a 1/2 HP grinder wheel and just evenly slide the wheel down the blade until it is sharp. CAUTION: it will cut you finger. Make sure you disconnect the power and the fuel is turned off at the time you do any of this work....
In case of a problem or clarification or my solution was insufficient, don't hesitate to post me a reply.
If you are satisfied, rate my solution with the "thumbs" or (even better) add a testimonial.
