Hi
Sounds like you have dirt/debris in your caburetor jets,fuel passages or a diaphgram that is becoming non-flexible.
Be sure to Check/Clean/Replace your Air Filter, a dirty air filter can make your engine run to rich with fuel.
NOTE: Before you dissemble the carburetor:
Make sure you mark each piece with a awl, or some kind of instrument that will make an alignment scratch before you dissemble the carburetor into separate pieces.
That way you will know which way it goes back together when you reassemble it.
Be sure to check your fuel tank for water and dirt/debris, if there is water/debris then you need to clean your tank.
Also check you fuel line condition after a while they will degrade and need replacment.
Make sure you are getting spark at the spark plug, to do this:
Remove your spark plug and check to be sure you are getting fire at the spark plug.
You do this by grounding the plug on the head of the engine and pulling the crank rope, if you are getting spark then:
Check/Clean/Replace your fuel filter if you have one
Also make sure you are using fresh fuel
If the mower is over a couple of years old, then I recommend that you buy and install a new carburetor repair kit,because the diaphragm will get hard and that will cause it to be hard to crank.
I recommend that you use a laquer thinner type cleaner to clean and dissolve the laquer build-up in the float and needle jet passages.
Be sure to remove all plastic and rubber parts before using the laquer thinner because it can dissolve the plastic parts and render them unuseable.
Be sure to use compressed air to blow out all the fuel and air passages.
Be careful when blowing out the passages, because there are sometimes small rubber type seats in the bottom of some of the passages.
Sometimes you can get by with priming the carburetor or using starting fluid and letting it run a few times like that and it will flush the gunk out of the jets,but most of the time you will need to rebuild the carburetor.
Keep in mind that the float (if you have one) for the carburetor must be level when you go to reassemble the carburetor or follow the instructions you get with the carburetor kit.
When you clean your carburetor and remove the jet screws, you will first need to lightly seat the jet screws.
But before you lightly seat the jet screws count the number of turns it takes to seat the jet screws from their original position.
Be sure to mark the turns down on a piece of paper.
That way when you put the jets back in, you know to lightly seat them first and then turn them back out to their original position before you started.
Once you have your carburetor rebuilt that should solve your problem.

Viking mb555 pro mower self propulsion slow


If the drive mechanism is not worn... either belt or direct drive, increase the rpm by turning the carburetor adjustment screw. If the belt is slipping, get a new one. If the direct drive teeth are worn or missing cogs, replace the faulty parts. Belts often become slick on the side that contacts the shaft... try turning the belt inside out to get a fresh gripping surface.

Why drive lever pushed down does not engage the front wheels of my yard machine lawn mower ?


if everything else is working fine then it has to be your drive cable or the drive motor itself. First check to see if it feels as though the cable is actually moving, slid the lever back and forth, if there is no resistance then the cable has become unattached at the lever. Next is to see if the cable is attached at the other end. you will need to follow the cable and remove the cover that to see if the cable is attached to the drive. Also, is your drive belt good? loose?

Why isn't Lawnboy lawn mower model NO. 10604 drive not working


Inspect the pulley where the belt loops on the wheel transmission. There is a tension spring, that when you pull the level, it puts tension on the belt. If that spring is missing or the pulley does not provide tension the wheels will not turn because the transmission is not being engaed..

How do you adjust the drive cable on a troybilt self pro pelled md# 12A-446A711?????


Unfortunately, you cannot adjust it. If you have an extra space to move it lower than it was on the handle you can do that. You might have to get a new cable. Or the belt may need to be replaced. Do you hear a grinding noise when you try to engage the self propel? If so the transmission may have gone out. The most common problem is that the belt has jumped off from where it needs to be and it is no longer turning. To check to see if the belt is off, you will need to put the mower on its' side, the side with the oil level check is the correct one. You will need to loosen the cover over the drive belt. This is done by loosening one or two bolts that hold it in place.The bolts should have 3/8 hex heads. You may have to maneuver the cover a bit to see if the belt is in place. If the belt has jumped above the pulley for the self propel then you will have to install a new belt.

Can't push my self propelled lawn mower!


Remove the drive wheels and have a look at the gear teeth in them. If even slightly worn, they need replacing. If you run the mower with the wheels off, that end elevated with a block, see if the axle turns when you engage the drive. If it does, your transmission is fine. Wheels are a lot easier to change than a tranny.
