You may want to check the gas cap to see if it clogged with dirt. If the gas cap is clear, you more than likely have a carburetor problem. If you need tips on carb. cleaning, feel free to ask.

Troy, Unless you are using old fuel (it breaks down after 1 week) it sounds like you have a faulty spark plug. Replace this first, drain any old fuel and replace with fresh fuel (premium unleaded). A faulty plug will work one minute but then fail like you have described.

Typically self-propelled mowers are propelled using the front wheels, which only turn forward. Pulling the mower back while the front wheels are turning will damage the drive gears. It's best to raise the front wheels slightly off the ground before pulling back.

Usually near the end of the cable there is a squeeze clamp on the side of the cable. Losen the mounting screw (DO NOT remove it) and slide the cable in the direction that will expose more cable. Tighten the mounting screw and test the control. It is really pretty simple.
Thanks for using FixYa.

Tilt it over so the oil cap is on the bottom...it'll rest on the handle and hang there...put a container under the oil fill pipe...something shallow like a glad sandwich container works perfect...get a paper towel, and reach under an unscrew the cap...all the oil runs out into the container...it'll fit !!
Wipe the dipstick off clean, and put it aside...take this time to look at your blade on the other side...it "should look" similar to wood chisel at the last 5 inches of the blade on both ends followed by a wing under it...BTW: their $12 bucks new...and worth it !!
Go back and look at the container and be sure the oil is finished draining...take the lid for the container and snap it on and move it out of the way (no body likes an oil spill)...wipe off the oil fill spout, and re-fill...takes about a half a quart, so don't over fill it !!!
