Not to worry. When you tipped the mower on its side, oil ran into the exhaust. Allow the engine to run few minutes and it will stop smoking. The B&S engine will put oil in the muffler if tipped to the left, and oil into the carburetor if tipped on the right. The only safe way to tip the engine is where the spark plug is pointed upward.
Don't forget to check your oil level and adjust as necessary.
Good luck!

I suggest that you should remove deck, turn upside down and place straight edge or tight string line over blades from outer edges of deck frame. Use the guide strips to get even measurement. Rotate blades and measure distance from straight edge to tips at both sides. they should be the same. If there is difference from one side to the other, either the blades are bent, or if each blade is same at each end but not aligned in centre (difference in height) then the spindles need packing to make them even. Check that bearings are not loose. If you do not understand this best to take it to service centre.

Lawn mower ran out of oil and stopped running put new oil in and still not running is there something to do after putting oil in to make it run


If you can turn blade by hand first removing spark plug you then can try squirting 30w oil into plug hole and turn blade by hand. replace plug and try to start. Depending on whether you gouged the cylinder it may start.

Lawnmower blade wont turn


Probably bent the shaft. Disconnect the spark plug to prevent accidental starting and lay the lawn mower on its side. Slowly turn the blade with your hand and watch the center of the shaft. If it wobbles at all it is bent. $150 to $200 job. Probably time for a new mower.

LAWNMOWER STRING WONT PULL


Unplug the spark plug.
Try to turn the blade by hand, be sure to use a heavy glove to protect your hand from the sharp edge.
If the blade turns, then move it back and forth to free it up.
If it won't turn, take the spark plug out and try to turn the blade .
If it won't turn, you may need the engine overhauled.
If it will turn, put a level teaspoon of light oil in the spark plug hole, and turn the blade a few times.
Now try the pull rope.
If it works, put a level teaspoon of fresh gasoline in the spark plug hole and install the spark plug.
It should start
Be blessed.

Does the nuts on the blade go on the top or the bottom to protect them thanks mark.


I assume you have a blade mount that uses two bolts to connect the blade to the shaft.
Put the nuts on the top....facing the deck. If you put them down.....facing the grass they wear off quickly (after about 40 hours of mowing)
When they wear off they get rounded and you will have to use a locking pliers (visegrips) to get them off.

5hp Briggs & Stratton lawnmower starts but stop running?


Try cleaning the air filter, and check fuel tank for any debris.
Replace fuel filter if there is, and give the fueltank a good cleanout.
Use fresh fuel to refill.
