I don't know what type carb is on this one, but most have a diaphram. If the diaphram is weak it will cause this. You can purchase a new diaphram at a Lawnmower service center. It's not that hard to install.

Try changing your plug and check gap and put in some fresh fuel. Empty out the old stuff especially if it has been there a while. Also check your low idle setting on the carb open it up a half turn for starters. Good Luck...

Mtd 22" low idling how do I correct the problem?


if this has a briggs & stratton engine on it, then the idling is set thru a spring on top of the carberator. some units have an idle set screw also. if it has an idle set screw, turn it in untill it idles where you want it to, if it just has a spring, then replace the spring.

Lawnmower engine idling to low


First, follow your throttle cable down to the carb. Locate the clamp that holds the housing in place and loosen it just enough to move the cable. Start the mower and adjust the idle by the screw that touches the same plate that your cable hooks to. Then push the throttle control to idle and retighten the cable clamp.
