SOURCE: Brand new weed eater lawn mower blowing white smoke.

Pull air filter see if theres any oil in it,make sure the oil isnt overfilled. Push mowers usually smoke like that if theyre overfilled,or tipped on thier side,if there is oil in filter simply take filter off,drain oil to correct level,and run it till smoke goes away. If none of this is the problem rings are probably shot. Weedeater is a cheap brand and theyre made cheap too,not made to last.

SOURCE: when i start my lawn mower, white smoke comes out

Crankcase is over full. Check oil level more carefully before adding. ALSO ALWAYS when cleaning the deck REMEMBER AIR CLEANER UP .
It you lay it down on the wrong side oil can get from the crankcase to the muffler and carb and aircleaner. Thats oil smoke you see.

SOURCE: White smoke comeing from front of engine on my 1042 cub cadet lawn tractor.

White smoke is typically an indicator of an oil leak. This could be a leak, broken ring, valve or piston problem etc. I would start with checking your filter to ensure oil has not leaked inside there. Next I would check the spark plugs for oil build up. Doesn't sound like it's getting to the exhaust.

Why did lawnmover start smoking?


Some how the load was to great on the electric motor so it overheated. My first guess the blade was too dull or the grass too tall and/or thick.

My Troy Built Self propelled lawn mower has a oil leak which results in white smoke coming from it. What is causing it? I had it for 3 months.


Hi smithjazzy8...
Check your oil level, it sounds like it has got too much oil in the crankcase.
The oil level should be to the last two threads on the fill plug threads of the engine.
This is the main cause of white smoke coming from the exaust of the engine.

Continues blowing out white smoke after I start the lawn mower


Hik marie carten...
Normally white smoke coming out of the exaust will me one of two things.
You have overfilled the crankcase with too much oil and it is making the smoke, in which case you can drain the excess oil out and that should elimanate the white smoke.
Or, you have a worn out engine and oil is getting by the rings of the piston and being burnt in the combustion chamber of the engine.Which means engine overhaul, or buy a new mower.

Hello, my Toro 14-38 hxl (model 71193)is not


I have 12-38 hxl, and if my grass is too tall, it will wedge under the cutting deck and lock the blades, and the belt willstart smoking white. With the motor off look under and see if you do not have something stuck (branches or grass).Also, check your sparkplug.

White smoke


the white smoke is oil - did you overfill the oil ? if you tipped the machine your air filter could be full also - if this is an old machine it could be ready to throw a rod but not enough info from you to tell
