Check the air breather. Make sure it is clean.

If it is clean, you will probably need to replace the diaphragm. A bad diaphragm will cause black smoke and also cause the mower to run erratically.

22hp.zero turn sometimes smokes then stops.


The smoke could be caused by blowby around the piston rings. Pour a small amount of transmission fluid in the spark plug hole and turn the engine over several times. Check the plug for fouling. Also check the coil wire for spark.

How do i turn my power locked off?


First start with the set itself and look for any control switches that might control the power. Also check the back of the set for a master switch. If it isn't there take your remote and get into the menu function it shouldn't be hard to find. Look for anything that says something about power, it should say "power management" but it could all be under the sleep or stand by function. I cannot understand what the need for such a function is, for years the old "OFF" switch has done a fantastic job of power management. I guess it's no old fashion now, the living room light will be the next thing to go. I wish I was familiar enough with the set to tell you exactly which button to push but I would have to do a lot of research and I don't charge for my services, I just go on past experience. I've always had to search the remote to find what I needed and sometimes the over kill of gadgets is hard to hack through. One quick solution is if you have a kid from 5 - 15 years old around give them the remote they will be in it in a couple seconds. dhgill1949

Every chain saw uses as fuel a mixture of oil and gasoline. What is the correct mixture for a textron gasoline powered saw?


25:1 to 32:1

Start at 25:1. If it smokes too much or fouls a plug, go to 32:1 using a good grade 2-cycle oil.

Honda gas power pressure washer runs for awhile then cuts off.


did you pour all of the old gas out before you started to use it. Sometimes condensation builds up in gas tank when stored. You need to dump old gas an put in new gas.

Mower starts then it smokes


If you spilled any oil on the engine, it will smoke for a few good minutes until it burns off.

Or, you may want to check the air breather. It may be dirty.
