Your throttle cable likely needs adjusting.
It should be fastened on the engine with a screw. Loosen that screw and adjust while engine is running then tighten Keep fingers away from underneath while engine is running.

How do I fix the speed control on an Ariens walk behind lawn mower?


do you mean the throttle cable? as its a push mower im gussing it is. If the mower is relatively new then it will be fitted with an opc (or dead mans handle) in which case there is no need for a throttle control as the engine speed is governed and should only be used at the fixed goverened speed

My Honda HRC215 commercial mower goes very slow,how do i adjust it to make it go faster


Is your speed adjuster on the handle working properly? if not there should be a screw holding the cable on the engine Loosen that screw and push or pull to speed the engine then tighten back up.If that don't work there should be a spring coming out the to of the carb and if it speeds up when you push or pull it you can shorten or lengthen that spring. Which ever you need.

I borrowed my Brothers Tecumseh Yard Machine Push Mower to mow my lawn but the pull cord wont pull. Is there a saftey or something i dont know about ?


There is a little bar up by the handle that you have to pull back toward the handle, this is the dead man lever. When released it will stop the mower by grounding out the ignition coil and braking the engine.

If this is not the problem, then let me know.

I hope this helps.

Hi, I have a JS63C self propelled push mower that is having trouble with the self proppelled device. At the first speed 1 you can feel some self propell. However, if you advance to speed 2 or speed 3 you...


Hi Jerry. Sounds like your transmission cable needs to be adjusted. Since 1st gear is easiest for it to move in, you probably have little pressure on the clutch. Take the cover off the back of the mower (Torx T25 or T30 can't remember at the moment.) The spring on the cable should be measured when relaxed (handle not being held) then when you squeeze the S/P handle, it should stretch the spring 10mm. A friend or a clamp will make holding the handle and measuring more simple. Adjust the bracket the cable clips into in front of the tranny to obtain the desired 10mm, and you should be under power again.

How do I adjust the transmission speed of a Toro self propelled lawn mover. I move the control lever to N eutal and it slows a little..but it is moving too fast to keep up with it.


On mine there is wing nuts on the end of the rods that move up and down when you push the handle forward. You just back the wing nuts off a little and then try it. If its still going too fast do it a little more.

I need to know how to set the mowing height and do not have a manual


Almost all mowers' cutting height is adjusted by little "tabs" at each wheel. The tabs need to be pushed in to adjust.

There does not seem to be a spark. I even put fuel


is the deadmans handle pulling the cable enough to cancel the off switch? if not relase the cable from the handle, TIE A KNOT IN IT(!), re fit to handle, & bingo!
If the cable is working well enough already DONT tie a knot, it wont help, its the ignition coil! ( around £30)

Problem with mower string


The metal clamp on the cord is, to prevent the cord from going all the way in should it break. There should be a place on the handle of the mower for the cord to go through instead of having to pull from the mower you can pull the rope from the handle
