This model is not designed to increase RPM's other than the governor to compensate for increased load during operation. If it's slow I'd check the venturi tube and needle valve in the carb. Doesn't cut well, sharpen or replace the blade. Good luck.

Husqvarna Proflex 21 just stopped engaging the blades after bump over brick. Was working fine, on starting the next cut the engine goes well, lever works but no mower blades turn when lever lowered. T

Sounds like you have broken a shear pin in the drive pulley.
Shear pins are made to break if you hit something. Other wise it would cost a lot of money to repair the damage.

Why does my lawn mower start and immediately cut off? Installed new plug and filter.

How long has petrol been in mower for. Could have fuel that has gone bad in it. Also when you start mower you usually need to start with the choke activated until the engine gets warm and then take off the choke. Also check the throttle linkage as some mowers have a device that kills the engine when the throttle is pulled down to stop and it is usually on the mower engine and gets activated when you pull the throttle cable to the stop setting. Had one where this was bent. Another thing I have had is a pin that is in the drive shaft that had broken thus causing the mower shaft not to turn with the engine.

Cuts out when I increase the throttle

Blocked fuel injector in the carb, usually gunk in bottom of tank gets pulled through into carb so idle jet is ok but when you give it the beans the main injector is blocked and the idle jet isn\'t enough to produce increased power demand, ends up just sucking in air only.

also timing, leads, coil. check plug too. Red.

Toro Recycler engine doesn't rev up when control arm is engaged

check the throttle spring in the front of the engine.It is hooked to a loop and when going near a bush it will push in and slow the rpms down.If you locate it pull it out and the RPM"s should increase.

Briggs & Stratton Modle# 100000 will not stay started.

your engine is only running on the fuel you are pumping in, the carb. is not lifting the fuel on its own, maybe because of water in the bowl or dirty jets. You must take the bowl of and clean it out and depending on the type of carb. it might need a new diaphragm. Stephen.
