How do you protect a lawn mower from rain?

I don't have a place to put my mower inside the house ( I don't have a garage) and I was wondering if there's a way to protect it from rain and other elements outside? (Something simpler then installing a shed).

thx,
Gali

If you'll go to a hardware store, I sure you can find a cover for a law mower. I had the same problem. At fist I was afraid that it won't do but it works great. I got a cover from home depot for 20 bucks.

Good Luck :-)

I can get my lawn mower to start but it will not stay running


Drain all the gas out of your fuel tank via fuel line to carburetor. Then remove the bowl under your carburetor, place container under carb first. You will see that you have water in your gas. Just a little would keep your mower from starting and running. GOOD LUCK FRIEND.

I have a 14 HP Kawasaki engine on my John Deere lawn mower (LX176). I have no spark.I'm guessing coil but unsure of how to test it. I get readings through the windings with an OHM meter but I don't know...


All the "safety" engine-kill "features" on this mower will ground the ignition system, stopping the engine and causing a no-spark condition. Check the seat switch, the brake switch. Also, the circuit board will cause the problem you have if it gets rained on, (the mower hood does not protect it); point is do not let the mower get rained on (or washed) unless you protect the PC board, which is right behind the ignition switch. Mine dried out and worked again but only after liberal spraying with (plastic-safe) electronic parts cleaner. You are right the manual would help, it's like $76 but it's in depth. Good luck, and PLEASE tell us what the solution was! -Tom

Helpful Deere lx176, lx178, hood hinge tip: If the hood hinge is broken on yours like on most, Deere has a GREAT repair kit that's only $10. They really priced it at cost or less to correct a defect they are aware of.

I do not think you have been sold the proper belt. It sounds like the belt you purchased is too long. check in your owner manual for the proper belt.

1957 Sunbeam Twin-Blade electric lawn mower shaft bushing

1957 Sunbeam Twin-Blade electric lawn mower shaft...
Posted by mower man on Jun 08, 2008
I have a late 50's series Sunbeam twin-blade electric lawn mower that I use regularly. The shaft bushing(s) on the left blade has worn out, and there's too much play for me to run it w/o ruining the machine.
It appears that the belt-run cog inside the housing is the part that is supposed to come off of the shaft to get to the bushings, but instead of a cotter pin or other fastener holding the cog in place, it looks like a rolled metal pin that may have been pressed in place.
How do I replace the shaft bushings so I can keep using this great vintage appliance!? I found a website that supplies parts for this model year, but no schematics or user manuals. Thanks!


Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. This website is for vacuums and you would need to contact a local lawn mower shop in the yellow pages, they are amazing about the way they can fix old lawnmowers.

So if you need further assistance, please feel free to contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area or in the yellow pages, or contact the factory phone number or website to further assist you with your questions.
Thanks, Don the Vac Man
Go Ahead. Use Us.
