The electric motor should not need oiling sounds like you are running on a lightweight ext cord and under powering motor try hooking up to a plug directly into outlet see if problem persist

Poulan ss428s using to much oil


The engine only uses about 3 ounces of oil so if you are consuming oil and you dont see smoke just keep topping it off!

If it is smoking excessively you may have engine damage with resultant oil loss past damaged rings or cylinder wall.

You can pull the spark plug and look into the cylinder and see if you notice any major galling. Also a compression test would be a good idea to verify fit and function of the rings and sealing surfaces.

Oil in the gas tank


Not a big deal. Im assuming this is a 4-stroke push mower and not a leaf blower.
Remove the air box cover, air filter, and air box back plate. Careful there is a gasket on the back of the backplate that if damaged the primer bulb wont work, part # 272653. Remove the fuel line from the carb and drain the tank. Using a 1/2 inch wrench remove the bowl nut from the float bowl on the carb, hold the bowl to the carb as to not break the gasket seal, drain the bowl and replace the bowl nut. If you tried to run the unit and oil is in the cylinder remove the spark plug ( clean the spark plug) and spray some carb cleaner in the hole and pull the starter rope several times to purge the cylinder. Reinstall the spark plug, reattatch the fuel line, install the air box back plate ( leave the air filter and cover off for now), add fresh fuel.
Take unit outside and start, you may need to give it a shot of carb cleaner in the throat of the carb to help it start. It may smoke, it may blow oil out the muffler. Let it run until it quits smoking ( usually around 5 minutes) . Shut it off and complete assembly. It should be fine.

What ratio gas to oil do I mix?


Use 3.2 oz of 2-cycle oil to one gallon of gasoline. If you use 3.3 up to 4 oz you would be okay nut it may smoke a little. Sorry to hear about your husband. Good luck...Lee

Volvo 850 smoke coming from exhaust manifold


Not to worry. Run the engine up to operating temp before jumping to conclusions and let the heat burn off any excess oil. A leaf will not do any damage.Do not let the engine overheat while idling and if the oil light comes on switch off immediately.
The smoke from the exhaust is oil deposited by oily assembly hands just burning off. It should dissipate after about 15 minutes at most.(or 5 miles' drive)

Brand new weed eater lawn mower blowing white smoke.


Pull air filter see if theres any oil in it,make sure the oil isnt overfilled. Push mowers usually smoke like that if theyre overfilled,or tipped on thier side,if there is oil in filter simply take filter off,drain oil to correct level,and run it till smoke goes away. If none of this is the problem rings are probably shot. Weedeater is a cheap brand and theyre made cheap too,not made to last.
