Question about Mtd 22" Yard Machine Push Mower
After I mow 3 or 4 times I have to replace the sparks plug so the mower
will start. The plug is black. I am using alot of gas and when it does start black smoke comes out. If this is the carberator tell me where this is located on the mower and how to fix it. Thanks
Remove the top plastic hood and make sure you clean any grass buildup around the governor, carburetor, recoil fins and especially inside the air cleaner. Many times the air cleaner is plugged with old grass and the motor cannot breath, causing the black smoke. Replace the filter if it has any signs of oil contamination or debris buildup. It's a cheap fix that shouldn't be overlooked.

Again, ensure the choke is being completely opened after the mower is running smoothly. If not , the choke will make black smoke come out of the exhaust, the spark plugs fouled. But also make sure the air cleaner is not blocked with duct or ddebris.

The carb is located under the aircleaner it sounds like the mower is being fan at full throttle this on some mowers applies the choke try ajusting the throttle to full then slightly back to open choke.
