SOURCE: my lawnmower engine cuts out

I was having the exact same problem with my 6.5 hp Toro lawnmower with a Tecumseh engine. The engine would start up okay but after a few minutes of mowing, the mower would start missing and eventually shut down. I would pull and pull and pull on the starter rope, getting angry and frustrated and eventually going back in the house to let it cool down.

I looked up all kinds of information and I finally decided it was a bad coil (something about the resistance being low when the mower wasn't hot and then when it heated up the coil would conduct enough electricity to somehow make the engine shut down.)

I called a local shop and wanted to get an estimate on replacing the coil. I have no clue about engines so I dared not get into the guts of the mower myself. He told me to check the gas cap. HUH??????

He told me to make sure there wasn't a part missing out of it. I thought, what the heck would a gas cap have to do with the engine shutting down. Well, apparently there is a mechanism on these caps that prevents a vacuum from pulling on the fuel system and my gas cap indeed had a part missing. To verify this, I cut the grass for about 5 minutes. When it started to run rough, I took the gas cap off to allow pressure to escape from the gas tank and voila! it started to purr like a kitten.

So, I'm only out $4 for a new gas cap and I'm as good as new. Man I wish I was more mechanically inclined so I hope your problem is as easy to solve as this one.

Hope this helps!

SOURCE: Toro Recycler 6.5HP recoil start cord pulls hard & snaps back in

This sounds like you have bent the shaft. This happens when you run over something hard. Hope this will help.

SOURCE: broken starter cord on a mountfield M6 lawnmower -

This unit is supposed to have a Briggs & Stratton engine on it so:

Here is the instructions DIRECT FROM BRIGGS & STRATTON:

This is a relatively simple process, but you have to be VERY careful when doing this. The spring is long, under some tension and has sharp edges. Anytime you are dealing with the manual rewind starter assembly, there is risk of the spring coming out and possibly injuring yourself or others. If you do not feel comfortable performing this repair, I strongly suggest visiting one of our many authorized dealers in your area and have them do this for you.
You will have to remove the gas tank to get at the rewind and blower housing. Remove the entire blower housing and rewind assembly and turn it upside down.
NOTE:You do not have to drill out the rivets to get to the back of the rewind assembly. This is only necessary if you are removing the ENTIRE rewind assembly, (metal housing and all) and are separating it from the blower housing.
You'll need a pair of vise grips or a screw driver, some rewind rope, a long thin sharp tip flexible object (the wire from a coat hanger may work) and a lighter handy.

  1. Take the pulley and start to turn it so that the rope becomes loose.
  2. Remove the rope.
  3. Once the pulley is all the way out, with the most tension, either use the screwdriver between the spokes of the pulley, or use the vise grips to hold the pulley in place; be careful not to place too much pressure on the vise grips, the plastic pulley may break!
  4. Make sure that the hole in the pulley lines up with the hole on the rewind assembly.
  5. Using the wire from the coat hanger, push the rope through the hole of the rewind and pulley. Pull the rope through the pulley and tie it off. Now use the lighter to burn the end of the rope to prevent the not from coming off.
  6. Now, remove the screwdriver or vise grips, while holding on to the pulley.
  7. SLOWLY let go of the pulley and the rope should feed back into the pulley as you do this
Hope this helps you

Suddenly cut out whilst mowing the lawn. now wont start, pull cord stiff to pull


Something just like this happened earlier this year with my pressure washer. This is what I did to fix it and now it runs great. Check the oil. If it's black or feels the least bit tacky, drain a pint or two of the oil out and re-add that amount of Marvel Mystery Oil. Now, attempt to pull the cord all the way out, but slowly at first. It should get easier to pull after about 5 pulls. If the mower restarts, let it run for 10 minutes until the Mystery Oil is hot and has cycled around inside the engine. Then drain that oil and refill it with a quality brand of oil. To top it off, either clean or replace the air filter, and put a shotglass of Lucas gas & injector cleaner into the mower's full gas tank. I also do this to my lawnmower and weedeater. It works wonders. BTW...If you're unable to turn the engine over by pulling the cord, remove the spark plug and tilt the mower up, so you can turn the blade easily by hand (use gloves). BUT FIRST MAKE SURE THAT SPARK PLUG IS REMOVED. REMEMBER... SAFETY FIRST! Let us know if this helped you any.

Replacement blade for castelgarden C390 lawnmower


What Geographic location please?

UK:
http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Mountfield-Castel-Garden-EL390-R-C390-K390-Mower-blade-/280561700508

The blades on most sites are listed under Mountfield / Castel / Lawn King
There are 41cm and 37cm blades listed as fitting this mower. Seems odd that there is a 4 cm difference for the same mower.

As best I can tell this takes a 15 inch blade PN: 81004117/1 (
http://www.gardenhirespares.co.uk/product_list/81 See 15 inch blade

Thanks for choosing FixYa,

I have a regular gas powered lawn mower. It has a rip cord to start it. Even after I prime it no matter how many times I pull the cord it will not start unless I spray either in front of the...


The problem seems to be low compression. This could be due to either worn rings, in which case the machine should smoke while running or the valves have worn themselves into the valve seats - there being no adjustment on tappets on B&S small motors. There is a cover on the side of the motor opposite the carburettor, remove this cover and you will have access to the valves and the tappets. With the piston at TDC compression, both valves should be closed and there should be a small gap between the valve stem and the tappet. If either of the valves do not have this gap, you need to remove the head, remove the valve and grind just enough off the valve to prevent the valve from riding on the tappet.
If the valves are not riding, the only other solution will be to replace the rings and this involves stripping the bottom off the crankcase.

Hi, I have a Masport 635 Lawn mower, I think it is 2 stroke, just petrol ( not mixed with oil ). I don't know anything about how to maintain mowers. But today I mowed the back yard, it went fine, then...


If it is two stroke it must have oil mixed in with it. Try pulling the cord and notice if there is any compression if not then it is the pistion and if it doesn't turn then it is seized with lack of oil.Now if it is four stroke take the plug out put it to the head and pull the cord to see if there is any spark if there is it's a fuel problem.
