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.

If the spark plug is in great condition, remove and clean the carburetor. This will require soaking if needed with a good solvent or carb cleaner and compressed air to blow out the tiny passages that are clogged for the idle jet circuit and high speed circuit.

Generally this indicates a "lean" condition in the carburetor and there are no adjustments. Depending on your abilities, the best fix is to remove the carburetor and clean all the metering passages/jets. In some cases you are better off just replacing the carburetor. I have seen some Honda carbs. as low as $15-$20. Hope this helps to some degree.

My 22" MTD Yardman push mower runs too slow to cut much grass. How can I adjust it to run faster? It has no speed selection that I know of, only the handle bar that must be held tight to keep it running....


These inexpensive mowers are not made for large scale mowing. They're set to run as fast as they do and have low compression (read that as low power also) to make them easy to start and operate. About the only thing you can do to make it work better is keep the air cleaner clean, use fresh gas and keep the blade sharp so it cuts the grass easier. Mowing more often also means less cuttings under the deck so it works more efficently.

Rpm fluctuates idles high then low high then low


It could be the governor spring is weak. Get your model type and code numbers off the engine shroud and take them to your local small engine repair shop and get the new spring. It's not hard to replace. Install the new one and you should be up and running.

Need manual for a mtd snowblower, 22'' 2 stage, 4 cycle. Can't get it started, only if I spray ether, and only for 5 seconds. Ran it dry last season and has fresh gas.


For a manual go to mtd.com You will need the model number to find the correct one. As for you problem take the fuel line of where it hooks to the carb see if you have fuel getting to the carb. If you do you will need to remove and clean the carb. Before you remove the whole carb take the bolt out that holds the carb bowl on and clean it this might do to trick.
