Oil is coming out of the two holes that connect to the air filter. What is wrong?

I just purchased this mower late last summer and it wasn't used only a few times until I put it up for winter. Mowed a bit the other day. Mowed today and this is what I found.

Check your oil and see if its too full. Over filling will do that and you could do damage if you run it that way as well make it impossible to start.

Oil is coming out the two holes that fit to the air filter, what's wrong?

That's probably caused by excess crankcase pressure. The rings on the piston could be slightly stuck in the piston grooves allowing a bit of 'blowby' into the crankcase. Try a bit of 'Seafoam' mixed in the gas as an upper end lubricant and with a little use the rings should loosen and begin doing their job of keeping the compression on TOP of the piston and not bypassing into the crankcase.

Seafoam is a general system lube that can be used in fuel, oil, transmissions etc. Marvel Mystery Oil would be a good choice to loosen things up a bit too.

Husqvarna 6021p won't start

Make sure spark plug wire is connected and that plug is not blackened and fouled out. Also check your fuel filter (plugged?), the handbar safety lever & it pull cable and make sure it is opening the breather assembly down at the motor or closing the proper switch (unsure of the setup) Those are typically the most common problems. Good Luck

hard to say, I would make sure the inline fuse is good, then use a vehicle and jump start the mower. I am sure you know how to ensure the mower is ready to start, so we won't cover the pto,brake,etc. Good Luck Tim

check your gas tank cap, it is vented, if it gets clogged up fuel will not flow properly and engine dies of fuel starvation. By waiting a few minutes you have allowed the pressure to equalize in the tank enough to get enough fuel for engine to run.

Self-Propelled Model Starts, then dies after about 15 seconds

I posted same problem as this couple days ago. Took mower to shop. The governor spring (located just under the air filter) had come off. So glad it was something so minor!

Is there a way to charge the Air Conditioner?

Well. Assuming it is an undercharge condition, that means there is a leak. It is a closed system so low refrigerant means its leaving the system. I WOULD NOT recommend doing this yourself. The proper equipment should be used, not that garbage walmart sells. You will more than likely install either the wrong refrigerent type or amount, the wrong oil, too much oil (all of which will cause poor system operation and/or possible compressor damage). You can also not remove the air from the system without the proper equipmentn causing poor operation (none of which is cheap).

Trust me, this isn't a job for the typical DIY'er
