Lawn mower starts and stops right away

I have a new yard machine lawn mower. The first time I used it, it worked fine. I waited for nearly a month and tried to use it for a second time. It started without problem when primed, but stopped right away. It won't start if I don't push the primer. If I keep on pushing the primer, the engine would run (roughly), but the engine would stop as soon as I stop pushing the primer. I took out the gas and filled with fresh gas. The problem stays without any improvement. Any suggestions on what is wrong are very welcome. Thanks in advance.

My son has a self propelled lawnmower by Yard Machine (by mtd) 158cc 5.5 serial 1010295484595 and it has been used only one time. It starts but will not idle or stay running..what could the problem be?...


Are you saying that this mower is Brand New??? If so then take it back to where you bought it. If it's used / old, then you have the number one problem with used / old mowers. The carburetor needs a good cleaning or a rebuild, depending on the condition of it when it's dis-assembled. If you don't know carbs, then take it to a professional and have it done $30-$40 USD). I refurbish old mowers that people throw away because thet do not run and 90 percent of the time, a thorough carb job will bring them back to full life. Best of luck to you

GOT GASOLINE IN OIL TANK OF MY LAWN MOWER BY ACCIDENT. sTARTED THE MOWER ONCE .IT STARTED BUT GAVE A GREY SMOKE AND DIED.I HAVE A MACHINE YARD MOWER FROM MTD.IT IS 22'' SIDE DISCHARGER.PLEASE...


Empty the tank of the tainted gasoline (Maybe add the right amount of oil and use it for a trimmer, etc), fill tank with fresh gas and clean the spark plug, since it is probably fouled out. You may have to clean the carb with some carb cleaner, and clean your plug a few extra times, but it should be fine. Hope this helps. Good luck.

Requires several times just to get started and then runs fine for about 5-minutes and cuts then cuts out on its own. Then have to wait for about 10-15 minutes to start again but still requires several...


The most likely problem is the ignition module. It is probably going out. when a bad ignition module gets hot from use, it stops working, which kills the lawn mower since there is no spark. Once it cools off it sometimes works. This can be a some what costly part, $60 - $80. You might want to take it to a lawnmower repair shop and have them check it out, since there are other issues that could be the cause to your problem. If you have a spark tester, you could test the ignition module to see if you get spark, both before you start the mower, and after it quits on you.
