If it's the little Briggs & Stratton Sprint engine the problem is likely to be the diaphragm that sits between the fuel tank and the carburettor body. They shrink on an incredibly regular basis (usually just outside warranty!) and cause the machine to either not run, or run very rich (as if the choke is full on). If you're competent you can remove the tank/carb assembly, split the two and replace the diaphragm. If not, your local friendly machnery dealer will fit a new one for probably (in the uk) under £30..

Sovereign 35 classic white smoke

White smoke usually means there is water getting into the cylinder head. If your mower is not water cooled then there might be some water in the petrol. If the mower is water cooled then the cylinder head gasket has gone and needs replacing. Good Luck. George

Will not start petrol ok Carb jet settings ?? Condenser ??

Mowers do not have condensers anymore unless it is a very old model. Try replacing the spark plug, and is there sufficient compression? Even if the carb settings are out, the engine should at least fire if the ignition is ok.

when the lawn mower suddenly stop working,first you should check the fuel. i think the Self-propelled device was broken. You can take the Self-propelled device off and try again with it.
