Question about Husqvarna 7021 21Inch 160cc Honda GCV Gas Powered Lawn Mower ()

1 Answer

Mower start up and runs, but starts to cut back, and smokes just a little bit. The mower stops smoking when it throttle up. It will continue to run but not at full throttle. I can hold a finger gently over the fuel primer bulb and it will throttle up for a small time.

It sounds like she's being deprived of the correct fuel / air mixture due to a dirty carburetor (the biggest problem with mowers when gas is left to sit for a period of time). If you do not know how to take the carburetor apart and clean it thoroughly, then I suggest taking it to the local shop (hardware store or mower shop) and having it tuned up. It'll probably be just fine and worth the money. Hope this helps and good luck.

My 21 HP diesel zero turn mower starts blowing black smoke after running at higher throttle settings and temp gauge shows engine is warm. No air restrictions. New fuel filters. smooth running when cool or...


Looks like you've got a good idea on what makes diesels smoke, so I'm sure you know that black smoke is almost always from too much fuel for the air that's going in. So it can be too much fuel or too little air. If your filters are good, the next things to check are the fuel pressure and the injectors.

I know diesels, but I don't have any specific experience with lawn mowers (kubota?). Since it stalls eventually, it sounds like it's not a single cylinder (although not for sure) so I'd check injector pump first.

Murray 4.5 hp Q lawn mower runs rough and smokes.


White smoke indicates that it is burning oil. The smoke would be black if it was running rich. So probably the rings will need to be replaced eventually. These mowers are prone to problems but the carbie is least likely to be the problem. So before you adjust the carbie take the cover off the top and give it a good clean and check that all the hoses are connected and are not cracked. Then make sure the airfilter is clean, blow it out with an air compessor or better still get a new one. Then try it out agian. If this doesn't help there is two screws on the carby marked L and H. Turn these only 1/8th of a turn at a time and note or make their current position. Start with the H scew with the mower at full revs. Turn anti clockwise untill you get max revs then turn it back a bit. Running too lean will over heat the motor and damage it. Then if needed adjust the L (or Low)screw. If you get black or grey smoke when you push the throttle up from idle to full its too rich so turn clockwise. If if slows before it picks up to full revs turn anti clockwise.

White smoke and blade won't engage


Sounds like a low compression problem. The piston rings have most likely failed and oil is seeping past them and burning, thus the white smoke. An engine needs three things to run...Spark, Compression, and Fuel. Just take the mower back as it is still probably under warranty. Mike. Rate 100% please.

Oil causing a problem?


Sound as if you have too much oil in the machine. Anytime you see white or lite gray smoke it is a sign of too much oil. Before you go through the routine of cleaning the oil out of every nook and cranny, try unscrewing the spark plug and clean it with a soft rag. It would have oil on it preventing the machine from starting. If this does work and there isn't a lot of oil in the gas tank now, just continue running the engine until the smoke clears. It won't hurt anything. But if cleaning the plug doesn't help you will have to empty all gas and oil from the gas tank, refill with new gas, squirt a little gum out carb cleaner in your carb to remove any oil there (this can be done when you try to restart the engine). Remember, when you are mowing grass if you are mowing on a hill) of any knd, make sure to turn the mower so the gas tank is on a higher level than the oil.
