Question about Mtd 22" Yard Machine Push Mower

1 Answer

I have a Yard Machine 4.5 hp and it will start but quickly die. I've checked the spark, the air filter (at least cleaned, not replaced), has gas and oil. I has gotten wet from rain but dried out. Please help!! My grass is about to take over my house :)

Hello,

Check your fuel for water contamination. That is next place to look, air cleaner is dry as well, right?

Empty fuel, replace with fresh, and try starting again. It might take a couple of attempts until the emulsion tube (in carb) is free of water droplets.

B/s 4'5 hp/start then sputters for about 3 min. then shuts down/changed oil,plug


could be a number if things, dirty carb, old gas, dirty coil contacts, low combustion chamber pressure, (bad rings), bad spark plug. First try replacing the spark plug and if it is old gas remove and replace with fresh. if that doesn't do it then the carb needs to be removed, cleaned and blown out thoroughly with an air compressor. reassemble and reinstall. next is to remove the recoil housing and clean the coil contacts. the coil is attached to the spark plug wire. remove and with some old gas or wd-40 and a wire brush, remove dirt and rust from contacts as well as magnet on the flywheel. be sure to leave the proper gap between the coil and flywheel when you replace the coil. If you can pull the recoil with your forefinger and thumb, chances are your machine is toast and needs a ring job. good luck

95 Park Avenue Ultra dies for no reason I can find, I've replaced the crank sensor, cam ssensor, spark module, fuel filter, I've had the injectors tested, fuel pump tested, plugs & wires t


As you have probably figured out by now, you will have to treat it as a no start and troubleshoot it when it fails to start. Until you figure out if you are loosing spark or fuel to the injectors when the engine dies you have no direction to go in.

Was mowing just stopped


First check 4 things.

Check the gas tank for fuel (I know it sounds silly)
Change the spark plug
Clean or replace the air filter
Try charging the battery (you can also try to jump it just like you would with a car).

Let me know if none of these things work and try to give me more details about what happens when you try to start it.

After mowing for about 20-30 minutes the engine speed dies then revs then dies until it eventually shuts down. It will restart later but will eventually do it again. I've changed the spark plugs, fuel...


I had this problem with my new Craftsman mower about a month ago. Sears came out to my house and said it was a problem with my gas lid. They said it was too air tight and didn't allow for air circulation. They drilled a very small hole in the top of the gas cap and it fixed the problem. They mailed me a new replacement gas lid and it fixed that problem. Hope this helps you.

Fuel starvation - 'lean fuel' condition
Basic things to check:
1) spark plug
2) spark arrestor in muffler
3) fuel lines and tank filter
4) turn adjustment needles out (counterclockwise) 1/4 to 1/2 turn
Chain Saws:
5) check impulse tube and intake boot for cracks or leaks
*if all of the above are OK and/or do not improve performance then:
Remove Carburetor
6) replace gaskets/diaphragms
a) use a spray carb cleaner to clean jets, holes, and body of carb
b) fuel pump diaphragm goes against the carb body,
then the gasket towards the outside
c) metering gasket goes against the carb body,
and the diaphragm goes towards the outside
