Does it squeek when at an idle, or when driving, or cutting? Does it cut fine? I would check the belts and pulleys and blades for extra play. I had a mandrel bearing go bad on my ys4500 (also about a year old) and the first symptom was a squeeling sound when the blades were enguaged. Play in the mandrel caused the belt to squeek at the pulley that turns the blade. It also cut some nice gouges in my yard due to a floppy blade. I hope that this helps, I got the answers to my problem here on fixya.com.

I believe that one can find a downloadable .pdf version of the owners manual with a quick google search.

good luck

Brakes seem to be draging mows really slow


Please raise the machine so you can work under it and examine the brakes.
Brakes often can stick from rust, dirt, vegetation from mowing, etc.
It might be you need to do a good cleaning, oiling, and adjusting of your mechanisms.
God bless your efforts.

How is your compression? If it is low, your piston rings and/or the cylinder walls could be damaged and pulling oil up to the combustion chamber, which will burn oil and foul the plug. If you overfill the oil you could possibly get this also. When was the last time that you changed the oil and/or put oil in it? Do you currently have proper oil level?

After finishing mowing my lawn the other day, my mower leaked (dripped) gas from beneath the bottom of the carberator. What should I do to get the leaked stopped?


Ok, first thing you need to do is check your oil. Make sure no gas has gotten into the oil. if it has then be sure to drain it.
carberators today are really having problems with very tiny dirt particles making them malfunction. after cleaning my carb 3 times in one year and having to change the oil each time, i decided to get a 6 dollar fuel shut off valve. i cut the fuel line and installed the valve. when done mowing i turn the valve off and have not had a problem since. in fact i have put a valve on all my small engine equipment.
