SOURCE: Yard Machines 22 inch mower, I dumped it on its

if you bent the blade most likely you bent the crankshaft too.
Remove the spark plug and pull the rope and remove excess oil from the spark plug hole
check the spark plug for spark if you have none then a flywheel key is sheered a more in depth fix.
If you get it started you may notice a whole lota vibration due to a bent crank shaft or maybe not?

SOURCE: mtd 22" yard machine staryts and dies using prospray.

Remove the float bowl again and remove the BRASS Jet in the bottom of the venturi throat. Clean the pin hole of the Jet so that you can see through it. DO NOT force anything through it. Just clean it. Underneath the jet is the venturi tube itself. It is also unscrewed with a screw driver. Remove it and clean all ofthe holes in it. Then reassemble tube and jet in to the venturi. Check the BOWL NUT for 2 holes. If the holes are clogged your engine will suffer from a lack of fuel. Lastly check that you have FUEL flow from the tank to the carb. If the tank outlet hole is clogged you will also have a lack of fuel problem.

Testimonial: "Thank you for your very helpful advice and detailed insructions as to what to do to correct this problem with starting my mower. runs like new now. Thanks again for taking the time to help me out. Grump."

SOURCE: i have a Mtd 22

Drain out the fuel into a glass bowl and see if there is a layer of water in the fuel. It will be on the bottom of the bowl. This water will keep your mower from running except for the excessive amount of fuel water used during starting with the primer.

Now...if you find water in the mower...the source was most likely the gas can you use. Is it kept closed when not being used? Is the vent cap missing? Is it last years fuel? All of these conditions lead to water in the gas can and eventually find their way into the motor.

Good luck and be careful!

What kind of oil shoukd I use on a 24"cut MTD yard


I'm assuming you have a Tecumseh engine on there. But a Briggs would be the same. This is straight from Tecumseh, though (long story short is run 5W30 Oil or 0W30 Synthetic in it assuming winter temperatures:

Please tell me exactly how I mix the gas and oil for my 22 in gas hedge trimmer Ryobi Model RY39500A HT 26. What type of gas, what type of oil. Also can I buy this premixed?


If you go to your local home center in the lawn care section they will have these little plastic bottle of two cycle engine oil they treat a gallon of gas if this is your only machine that mixes gas and oil you probably will not use a whole gallon in a season and you should not keep the mixture for to long it will not last. So doing some simple math and looking at back of container try to mix the ratio down if a whole gallon is not needed. Good Luck...

Does anyone know whether these Yard Machines lawnmowers take straight gasoline or mix? I cant find an onwers manual online to clarify it. To be clear I seem to have a bit of an oddball machine;...


Straight gas. Look around, and you will see where to fill the engine with regular sae 30 oil, and on lawnmowers, if you have a place to fill it with oil, you don't mix oil with the gas.

Was just given one of these with no manual.... what is the oil to gas ratio??


Is it a 2 stroke or 4 stroke? if it has a plug on the bottom above the blade to drain oil (look under the deck on the bottom of the engine) it is a 4 stroke and you do not mix gas / oil in this type of engine. It works just like your car, change the oil every 2 months and keep good gas in the tank. If the engine has no oil plug to drain oil it is a 2 stroke and you do need to mix the oil / gas. is should mix at a 1 to 32 ratio. use low ash oil.

I just bought a Weed Eater 22" gas push mower. Do I mix oil with the gas to run, as I do not see an oil input? p.s. I purchased this at a yard sale.


If it has a dipstick or plug to check the oil in the engine you do NOT mix gas and oil.
Use regular unleaded gas only and use 30 weight detergent oil in the engine crankcase if it is low.

My B&S Yard Machine shoots out white smoke it also leaks out oil and gas mixed


If this is a 4 cycle mower (seperate places for gas and oil) and you are using a oil and gas mix as I am reading from your post that is your problem. When you use a gas&oil mix in a 4 cycle you get smoke and if fouls your spark plug. Also be more specific where the oil and gas mixed is leaking from. I SUGGEST THAT YOU DRAIN OUT THE GAS&OIL MIX AND CLEAN THE SPARK PLUG OR REPLACE AND FILL WITH STRAIGHT GAS AND SEE HOW IT RUNS.

Good luck
