Question about Mtd 22" Yard Machine Push Mower

1 Answer

Runs for five seconds after being tilted up and put back down.

Cut the yard last week then put it away. Now it won't start. I tilted it up on the right side to look underneath it and then set it back down. It started but ran for five seconds with the choke pulled out. Now, it will do that every time if I tilt it up for a few seconds and set it back down. It just won't stay running. New gas, carb looks good, plug looks good, air filter good. Even the filter from the tank to the hose looks good.

Trash in the tank fuel line outlet. When you tilt it the trash moves and lets some gas in. Set it down and the trash goes back in the hole and shuts off the gas. No pressure to feed fuel so when you pull choke makes it run rich and then starves for gas again. Dump gas, disconnect the line at the carb. Put a clean tube (drinking straw, plastic tube, whatever will fit so you don't get gas in your mouth) in the gas line and blow air into the tank through the filter clearing the obstruction. Reconnect line then see if it runs longer before it shut off. If it does clean the tank and flush the dirt out.
If that doesn't change anything then it has to be a carb diaphragm leaking and it need a rebuild kit and fuel system flush.

Tip

Sight in your scope


I have given this tip to a dozen people this week. It will save you a ton of ammo. If you don't have a bore sighter of access to one, get a big cardboard box, cut V's in the top that the rifle will sit in nicely, remove the bolt. Find a target, 100 yards away, sight down the bore, tilt box, rifle to target, make sure it doesn't move, adjust scope to the same target. check to see if the rifle is still on, then check the scope again. This will put you on paper at 100 yards.

Coolant on the spark plugs is a classic indication of a failed cylinder head gasket. No point in doing any further analysis 'till you get that squared away. When you replace the head gaskets, it's always advisable to have the heads checked for cracks and warpage.

My Troy-Bilt 21'' 3-in-1 self-propelled mower will not start


Next time keep the carburetor up...tipping it down will allow oil to go where it's not supposed to. For now drain out the remaining oil, replace the air cleaner and remove the spark plug. When the plug is out pull the engine over a few times. It's possible that there is oil in the cylinder and this will help clear it out. Replace with a new plug and try. If this doesn't work, repost.
