Mower will start but runs rough & stops


Is the carb flooding?is there black smoke coming from exhaust when running, if so it could be the carb over filling with fuel. Is there petrol leaking out of the carb? If not check the fuel pipe is in good condition

Lawn mower will not start. It began to run rough and acting like it was going to stall. Then it came to the point where when you pulled the cord it would start then immediately stall. Now it will not start...


It likely needs a carb rebuild. Be sure to check your tank for water in the fuel as well.
BTW lawn boy carbs appear to be the simplest carb ever but are very touchy ( especially with leaking inlet needles) so dont underestimate them and you will be fine.

8hp Tecumseh engine how to adjust carb. when I put throttle on high it sputters drop the throttle back down its okay?


These symptoms indicate a rich mixture. Assuming the carb is the original (and therefore correct) one, and that it has an adjustable main jet, turn in the main jet adjustment screw on the bottom of the float bowl until the engine runs smooth.

If there is no adjustment on the float bowl, the carb will have to be removed and properly cleaned (ultrasonic cleaner recommended).

My mtd tradesman lawn mower does not run smooth. where is the idle mixture adj. screw? the engine is the tecumseh 5.5 hp model #VLV55 501029A(D)


The newer machines do not have a way for you to adjust the Idle, what you can do is change the spark plug or spray some carb cleaner or remove the air filter and run it for a few minutes without the air filter and see what happens
