    great it might have too much oil in. Is there a drain plug for the oil or will i have to tip the mower on its side? I think this could be problem as my dad said he thinks he put too much oil in

Buy some starting fluid and spray some in the carb or air cleaner intake port, if the machine is flooding do not choke while using the starting fluid, make sure you do not have too much oil in the mowwer.

My mower started making smoke and then stop working?


SOUNDS LIKE THE OIL HAS FLODDED THE SPARK PLUG. REMOVE THE SPARK PLUG AND CLEAN IT USEING A WIRE BRUSH AND SOME BREAK PARTS CLEANER. THEN DROP SOME OF THE OIL OUT. YOU MAY HAVE PUT TOO MUCH IN THE ENGINE. THE SMOKING WAS CAUSED BY THE OIL BEEING BURNED BY THE SPARK PLUG. SOME HOW OIL GOT IN THERE. TRY CLEANING THE INSIDE OF THE SPARK PLUG OPENING WITH SOME CARB CLEANER. PUT THE SPARK PLUG BACK IN AND TRY TO START IT. REMEMBER IF THE SPARK PLUG IS FOULED UP, IT WILL RUN POORLY OR NOT AT ALL.

Husqvarna R53SV Petrol Mower wont start. I think too much oil had been put in. I drained some out bu still wont start. Is the engine flooded? how could i start it? Thanks


Use starting fluid when it does finally start continue starting until all the oil is cleared out of the carburator you may need to repeatedly choke out the carb with the engine running to clear out the carb, do this by removing the air cleaner, start the mower on high speed rpm, and cover the air intake with your hand repeating this start/ choke/ stall procedure until it is cleared out it works, I just did this to a mower last week that had too much oil in it, the mower smoked quite a bit but eventually returned to normal

Nannie what can be wrong with my power devil petrol lawn mower the engine wont keep running then cuts out petrol and oil ok


Check air filter, check screen in bottom of fuel tank,
New spark plug and also check the spark.
If there is a weak spark, the coil may need to be replaced.

If you have good spark, clean air filter, and clean fuel tank screen, then the carberator will need to be pulled of and cleaned out with solvent

Brand new Pope Spitfire 40 lawnmower won't start


Caren,
Drain the fuel completely if it is older than 1 week. Make sure you undo the bolt at the bottom of the fuel bowl to ensure all old fuel is drained. Refill with fresh fuel (premium unleaded) and try again. If it still does not work then remove the spark plug and rest it on the metal of the mower while still attached to the silicone ignition wire. Have someone hold the cut out bar to the handle (as you normally would to run the motor) and pull the cord. You should see sparks being emitted from the spark plug. (Make sure there is no fuel nearby) If you cannot see any sparks then replace the spark plug with a new one and repeat this process. If you still cannot see any sparks being emitted after attatching the new plug to the silicone wire, resting it on the metal of the mower, and pulling the cord to start it as you normally would, the mower will need to have the resistor and capacitor checked by a professional repairer as no spark is being generated.

Good luck.

Can not start mower - petrol n oil ok - how do I get into s plugs


Hello,

Fuel in the oil indicates an excessively rich condition. To correct, you will need to drain the petrol contaminated oil and replace with new. Then, take out the old spark plug and leave the spark plug hole open. Turn the engine over several timesby hand to help vent any raw gas in the cylinder. Then, install a new spark plug.
You should be able to now start your engine and make any other adjustments with it running.

Cheers!
