Check your fuel filter in the fuel tank to make sure it is clean if it is then"
Sounds like you will need to clean the carburetor or replace your carburetor internal rubber parts like the diaphgram and O rings.
Be sure to use compressed air to blow out all the fuel and air passages.
Be careful when blowing out the passages, because there are sometimes small rubber type seats in the bottom of some of the passages.
Sometimes you can get by with priming the carburetor or using starting fluid and letting it run a few times like that and it will flush the gunk out of the jets,but most of the time you will need to rebuild the carburetor.
Keep in mind that the float for the carburetor must be level when you go to reassemble the carburetor or follow the instrucitons you get with the carburetor kit.
If the mower/weedeater is over a year old, then I also recommend that you buy and install a new carburetor repair kit,because the diaphragm will get hard and that will cause it to be hard to crank.
When you clean your carburetor and remove the jet screws, you will first need to lightly seat the jet screws.
But before you lightly seat the jet screws count the number of turns it takes to seat the jet screws from their original position.
Be sure to mark the turns down on a piece of paper.
That way when you put the jets back in, you know to lightly seat them first and then turn them back out to their orginal position before you started.

Mowing at mid throttle, suddenly the engine started over revving. Acts like governor isn't working. Every time I try to restart it instantly starts to over rev.


According to Amie Taylor on http://homeguides.sfgate.com/lawnmower-revs-up-down-100220.html "Airflow Issues A lawnmower that hunts and surges may be experiencing something as simple as an airflow issue. If the air that the engine requires to run is blocked, especially sporadically, it can cause the engine to slow down. When the blockage moves or clears, the engine may suddenly rev up in response. To fix this type of problem, check the air filter to ensure that it's not clogged with dirt and debris. Check the vented gas cap as well. Both issues can cause reduced or sporadic air flow, and clearing them will fix the problem.
Spark Plug Problems Another problem that can cause revving and dying of a lawnmower engine is a faulty or poorly adjusted spark plug. Check the spark plug to see if the wire is connected to it firmly and not wobbling about. If it is connected correctly, remove the spark plug to see if it's covered with corrosion. If so, a simple scrubbing with a wire brush can restore it to working order. If necessary, replace the spark plug with a new one. Check the spark plug gap with a spark plug gauge to ensure that it's adjusted to the proper setting recommended in your owner's manual.
Carburetor Adjustment A carburetor that's incorrectly adjusted is a common cause of poor engine idling that results in hunting and surging. Fortunately, most lawnmowers have two screws that allow you to adjust the carburetor yourself. One screw controls the idle speed while the other adjusts the idle mixture. Check the manual if you're unsure of the location of the idle adjustment screws. Start the mower and allow it to run for 5 minutes. Then slowly adjust the screws tighter or looser in turn until the mower runs and idles smoothly.
Fuel Problems A particularly simple fix that can be at the bottom of many lawnmower idling problems is old or contaminated fuel. If the fuel has been left in the mower while it was stored over the winter or while the mower has remained unused, drain it and replace it with fresh fuel. If you have gas-powered blowers and trimmers that use a mixture of 2-cycle oil and gasoline, check to see that you've not placed that mixture in the lawnmower inadvertently."

sounds like your petrol filler cap hole is blocked , try and drill a hole in the cap or loosen the cap slightly , and change the spark plug , the izy can go through plugs regularly, you could try a good wire brushing and set the gap

good luck

I have a Honda GCV 160 LAWNMOWER IT WILL ONLY RUN WHEN FULLY CHOKED


BEFORE you go thru all of the advice and look at most other Honda web info.....go and buy a brand new spark plug and start with that! It appears Honda used a NGK spark plug in the past that fails after some time....giving the syptoms of problems with the carb, runs for 10-30 seconds, sticky valve, etc. Do not try to clean and use the old spark plug!! Check this out....it was the answer I was looking for after hours of work, reading, and talking to Honda dealers ---- http://forum.doityourself.com/outdoor-power-equipment-small-engines/261743-honda-lawnmower-starting-then-cutting-out.html

When starting from cold car runs ok for few seconds then hunts/missfire can cuts out.re starts ok but will do the same again ubtill you get a bit of heat into engine then its ok!


i advice you to change the spark plugs,this is cause because at cold start the engine needs a rich mixture in order to maintain a smooth idle,before driving the car,when starting from cold ,what you have to do is to accelerate up to 2000 rpm for 3 minutes then you drive it,then it should be ok
