Check that the crank case is not overfilled thiswould be obvious by oil being drawn into the carb inlet through the breather. If this is not the problem the rings may be badly worn. Remove the spark plug and pull the starter, see if oil comes out of the plug hole. A badly worn inlet valve guide could also be responsible.

My lawnmower is fuming when i start it. what is causing it?


Is the air filter clean? Dirty air filter creates a vacuum sucking too much gas.
Is the choke not working properly?
It it's black smoke it's burning too much gas.
If it's blue smoke it's oil. If it's oil smoke did you over fill when you put oil in.
Over filling the oil will cause it to smoke.
Bad piston rings will cause the oil to burn also.

My cub cadet zero turn lawnmower smokes from the exhaust and stalls but the engine doesn't make any unusual noise


Check to make sure that you have not overfilled it with oil. if that is not the problem, then either the rings are bad or the oil seals on the valves are bad.

I stored my lawnmower on an angle all winter. Yesterday when I tried to start it oil came out of the exhaust. Today it started with alot of blue smoke, of course. what's my next step?


Just make sure the oil level in the crank case is OK, then just run it. The smoke will burn off once the muffler heats up, but it may take a while. The smoke is annoying, and not all so environmentally friendly, but it won't do the mower any harm. Just because the oil leaked into where it wasn't supposed to be, it doesn't mean that you have increased the ability for oil to leak that way. Good luck, Al K

I leaned my lawnmower forward (on its front wheels) when I stored it. Now the lawmower is sputtering when I start it...There is smoke coming out the side of it. It only runs properly if I lean it on its...


most likely you have oil on top of the pistons and to much has gotten into the intake and exhaust valves. remove the spark plug, clean it or replace it, than pull the starter rope several times to exhaust some of the oil inside. install plug and start the mower. it might smoke some but should clear up.

Oil appearing at exhaust, smokey, briggs and stratton lawm mower.


You will need to replace or clean the air filter, and probably the spark plug. Do not operate the mower for some hours to allow the oil drain (inside the engine). Check oil level and fill it if necessary. Some oil remaining in the exhaust should be burnt next time the lawnmower operates.You will see smoke at the beginning, that will be normal (burnt oil). Hope this helps!

Lawnmower is spewing white smoke


white smoke means that there is water in the fuel air mixture during combustion. a bluish white smoke means oil is being burned during combustion. take another look and make sure which one it is. since all mowers ive seen are air cooled the only way water can be getting in the fuel air mixture is through the gas cap. check your gas tank and gas can for water. may be best to empty both and start over with fresh fuel
