Running problems with Mountfield HP454 petrol lawnmower

The mower starts OK in choke mode, but cuts out after a few seconds. If I start it in fast mode, it sometimes fixes the problem for a while. The engine also stutters a lot so it seems like there might be a problem with the fuel pump?

First thing to check is the air filter. It may be plugged.

Just bought a mountfield sp454 mower filled it with petrol the petrol then started to pour out of fuel bowl there was a plug missing fitted a small bolt in the hole then started the mower it felt as though...


Get he model, type and code off of the engine shroud and take them to your local small engine parts dealer and get the proper bolt for the fuel bowl. They use a special bolt that is hollow and with a weep hole for the gas to flow through the inside of the bolt and up into the carb. Get the right bolt and it will most likely run for you.

good luck

My troybuilt yard pony riding lawnmower will start with the choke fully open and then dies immediatly when you take the choke off. It will only start and run with the choke fully open, but dies after 20-30...


Do you mean that you can start it normally using the choke (that would be choke CLOSED), but then it dies immediately when you move it to run (that would be choke OPEN)? And if you leave the choke in the starting position that it dies after 20-30 seconds?----- If I have that all right, then you definitely have a restriction in the gas supply. Drain all of the gas from the mower and don't use any old gas. If you have any more old gas (from last season) don't use it. If this mower has a gas filter, replace it. Put just a little fresh gas in the tank plus a little of the cleaner. Start it up, do that a few times if needed. Use a fuel additive such as Sea Foam to keep the gas from gumming up so fast.
