I have a Honda HRR2162TDA lawnmower and I cannot get it running. I have replaced the spark plug, the blade and the air filter and it still will not turn over.
What would be the next solution?

It sounds like your air filter needs to be replaced. I would also check the spark plug to see if there is carbon deposits on it. The socket to remove the spark plug is a 13/16 and it needs to be a deep well socket. This should get the unit back to running condition. The air filter part number is 17211-zl8-023 for a square air filter. If you do not have a square air filter, you will need to take your model number off of the engine (ie Gx160 GJAEA-1111111 and above this is another number like QX2). You can locate the model information by looking at the side of the engine with the dipstick on it. It may be covered with part of the fuel tank/ flywheel housing. It will be stamped into the metal. Any Honda Power Equipment dealer should be able to get the air filter for you. DO NOT use a briggs and stratton air filter. Dirt can leak past the foam seal and can damage your carburetor and could possibly lead to engine failure.

I have a toro z150 zero turn lawnmower.. I can put gas in the carb and it will fire but will shut back off as soon as its burnt.. I took a air hose to all of the lines and getting gas past filter.

That is not a simple answer, You would need to continue the cleaning into the carburetor. Make sure your float and needle valve are not stuck. pull the bowl off the carb to see if any gas is in the bowl. if not the chances are that the float is stuck.

When can you tell when you need a new carb on your lawnmower? .

Hey Julie! It could definitely be something with the fuel float in your carburetor, or as you said, it could be the carburetor in general. You could get a carburetor rebuild kilt and remove the carburetor again, clean it, and rebuild it with new parts, or, you could just go ahead and get a new carburetor, as a dirty or cracked carburetor can also cause a leak of this type. It's really your call on which you want to do! if neither of these fix your problem you may want to take it back to the shop again. Best of luck!

I have a MTD Honda Lawnmower that is having idling trouble. It starts great, but once the chock has disengaged itself the engine surges. If I continue to hold the choke on just a little, it runs just...

Generally this indicates a "lean" condition in the carburetor and there are no adjustments. Depending on your abilities, the best fix is to remove the carburetor and clean all the metering passages/jets. In some cases you are better off just replacing the carburetor. I have seen some Honda carbs. as low as $15-$20. Hope this helps to some degree.

Someone put sugar in my Honda lawnmower's gas tank.

You will need to flush out the carburetor as well. The sugar is clogging up the port that **** gas thru them to the intake.

First off, check and adjust the valve tappet clearances. Under normal use, the valve tappet clearance tends to decrease. With this comes lost compression and a poor idle.

Next, check the air filter (clean as needed or replace), and drain any water or other sediment from the carburetor float bowl.

Fuel mixture appears to be too rich on myHonda lawnmower

There is an air/fuel ratio adjustment screw on the side of the carburetor. Turn this back and forth until the mower runs smootly.
