Mower will start and run for less than 30seconds before stopping.This is happening with a mower that has been used only 3 times.Air filter is clean and thegas is fresh.Any ideas?


Check that you haven't the throttle control in the start position. Some mowers have a position on the control which turns on the choke and you have to move the lever to the run position for normal use.
Check the spark plug cable is pushed fully onto the plug. The float valve in the float bowl may not be allowing fuel to flow freely into the bowl. Remove the bowl while holding a container underneath it to collect the fuel. The float bowl works like a toilet cistern and the flow stops when the float rises upwards on the fuel in the bowl. Check the fuel is running ok.

Lawnmower starts and dies... where is the main jet for the carb?


try cleaning the air filter, then a touch of starting fluid right into the carburator by taking the air filter off. If it then starts but wont run or stay running, the reservoir below the carb should be removed to clean at and the pinhole in the intake tube above the bowl nut. This is the most common problem with lawnmower start problems, the pinhole can be unplugged with one wire from a wire brush. Be careful with the gas, at least pinch off the gas hose with a vise grips while removing the carb bowl.. Never use a droplight around gasoline. most lawnmowers have no mixture adjustments, so it is a matter of cleaning the carb, tank, gas lines. Some oils in gas mix systems settle and clog after less than one season.

Looking for a manual for an electrolux lawnmower, also says poulan weed eater. Model # 386191. It does not seem to get enough gasoline.


You can try draining the carb and cleaning the main jet first?

If the carb is a bowl type also check the float to see if enough gas is flowing when the float hangs free. The carb should stop flowing then the float is lifted up and is sitting parallel to the carb body.

If you dont have a float type carb you can remove the carb body and check for dirt in the pickup tube as well as the main jet.

Lawnmower will not stay running


I have a similar model. I'm not sure if yours is the same cheap chinese made hunk of quick rusting metal that mine is, but if it is I've had the same problem for a couple of years.
The only way I found to fix this is, every time I want to start it, empty the gas tank into a container and then take the float bowl off. You'll want a 10mm box end wrench to remove the bottom bolt from the float bowl. When you take it off, you should see lots of rust caked in the bottom of the bowl. Brush and rub that off with something smooth and hard (like the end of the wrench), after spraying with WD40 or similar spray lube.
Then spray the float itself, and you will see a small pin the float should be actuating (moving it up and down). Spray this pin, then gently tug on the float (down), and then release the float and gently push up on the pin itself. Once you get the pin to move, while pushing and pulling it and spraying it down with WD40, keep moving it until the pin automatically goes all the way up and shuts off the fuel flow, and the float smoothly comes all the way down. Then spray everything down really well with the WD40 and put it back together and put the fuel back in the tank.
It should run normally now, and any difficulties left should iron themselves out. At least until you sit it in the garage for a week and go out there to mow again, I have to repeat these steps every week and a half. One thing that seems to help is running the mower dry of gas every time before parking it in the garage, unless you'll be using it the next day or sometime very soon.
You might want to consider changing it over to use propane too, there are kits for sale on ebay that are supposed to do that really easily.

Poulan pro 20hp 42" lawn mower running rough


My immediate impression is that the float is "stuck open".

Pull the float-bowl, and check that:

a. the bowl and float are clean, and
b. the float moves freely, and
c. when it's in the "up" position, the flow of gas stops (which means that the needle is "seating" properly and doing its job)
