SOURCE: My mower surges. its a Murray, model number

first check to see if you have good clean gas in it. No water. if you have good clean gas. then I would recomend taking the gas tank off wich should have a plastic carburetor mounted to it. after that is removed and free of excess dirt. take the carb off there should be 5 phillips head screws. pull the carb off gently while observing just how it all goes back together. you may want to take pictures. you will find a fuel screen that you should take off and clean with carb spray. also there is a fuel pickup tube clean that also with carb spray. a couple words of caution if using compressed air Do not carried away with it. also same with the carb cleaner to much of it in rubber primers is not good.

SOURCE: yard machine 21'' push mower runs 2 to 3 seconds cuts off.

Tip the mower up on it's side with the dipstick tube on the down side and collect it in a suitable container. The gas you can do the same. When I drain old fuel, I mix it with a lot of fresh fuel and a bottle of dry gas then run it in my car.

Check the kill switch. It may be stuck in the off position.

SOURCE: Its starts but will cut off

The problem you are having is due to dirt and gunk in the carbeurator. Spray a carbeurator cleaner into the air chamber [remove the air filter] and run it a couple of times then let it sit for two hours while the carbeurator cleaner does its job of dissolving any debris. Then start it up. IF this does it, great, if not repeat the cleaning technique.

If all of this doesn't do it, then the carbeurator will have to be removed and either replaced or rebuilt.

Are you getting spark first of all. If you are getting spark do you have good gas? If you have good gas most likely your carb needs some attention maybe you had some old gas sitting in there and something inside is gummed up it might need cleaning.

Murray select hp


Mathieu. It sound like you have overfilled it with oil. Drain most of it out the leave it level. A lawnmower will run better with it not being overfilled. Clean the spark plug and heat it gently to completely remove traces of oil. John

My murray push lawn mower won't start


did it die right after a refueling? You might have water in your fuel can.
Which now is probably in your mower.

Drain out all the fuel *(remove the carb bowl too) Get some fresh gas *(dump your can of fuel out into a secondary container so you can look for water in it. If it has water on the bottom...you should dispose of it wherever you dispose of your mowers waste oil.

You should be sure you have spark. Which means you need to remove the spark plug from the head and with the boot still attached dangle it on the metal head and give it a pull and look for sparks. If you have no spark you might need a new plug or coil. Thats really all you can do for weak or no spark. Be sure the plug is clean and free of oil/gas contamination as that may have fouled the plug.

Good luck and be careful!

I have a Murray 6.0 hp 20 inch push lawn mower. How much oil do I put in when changing oil.


If there is a dip stick add some oil check the level till you get to the full mark. It should take a little more than a quart. If there is no dip stick then there is an oil fill plug down low on the engine. Fill slowly until the oil reaches the threads in the engine housing (almost overflowing). Be sure to replace the plug or you will have oil everywhere when you start it.

Don't just dump the oil in, check the level as you go!

Lawn mower does not run.


Needs a new diaphragm. Its between the carb. and gas tank. It collapsed and doesn't allow enough gas to carb. to keep motor running.

Change your air filter, spark plug, fuel filter, and oil. Then make sure the gas is fresh. Gas starts going bad after a month. Spray carb cleaner in hole underneith the fuel filter. Oh yea dont put more than 20oz of oil in it.
