Is your mower playing up? Here are some tricks and tips to try yourself before you bring your equipment in to All About Mower Repairs.
My Mower will not start
- Check the Spark Plug on your mower. There are commercial spark plug testers which can determine immediately whether your mower needs a new one. If your spark plugs are good you will see a healthy spark when the engine is cranking – if there is no spark the plug is defective and your mower needs a new one. Signs of damage or wear to your mowers spark plug are cracked insulators (the porcelain part) or the electrode is damaged, often it is burnt away all together. If this is the case we can certainly help you at All About Mower Repairs.
- Have you left any fuel in your mower and not used it in quite some time? If so, a likely reason for your mower not starting is that the carburetor is probably clogged up. As you leave fuel in your mower gradually the fuel evaporates leaving behind a liquid with much higher viscosity which will stick to your carbi and clog it up. Try cleaning it with a carburetor cleaning product. At All About Mower Repairs we can clean it for you or if needed rebuild or replace it. Don’t forget to always run your mower until the fuel tank is empty to avoid these mower maintenance issues.
- Your Mowers Fuel Pump may be faulty. Unfortunately a fuel pump is not repairable, at All About Mower Repairs we will have it replaced for you in no time. Have you recently filled your mower with engine oil? If the mower engine oil capacity is overfilled, the overflowing oil can enter the pulse port line preventing your mowers fuel pump from working. To check yourself whether the fuel pump is faulty, check the valves and the diaphragm in the pump as well as the pulse port line.
- Have you replaced your fuel filter recently? A reason why your mower will not start may be a clogged up filter which is often caused by old fuel left over a period of time in your lawn mower. Drain all the old fuel and replace the filter. We can certainly do the job for you at All About Mower Repairs.
- The recoil starter of your mower may be faulty. If it is defective the engine cannot start. To check, remove the cover of the recoil assembly and test by pulling the starter rope of your mower. When pulling the rope it should grab the hub of the engine and translate its turning power causing the engine to crank. When releasing the rope it should retract smoothly back on the pulley. At All About Mower Repairs we can help you replace your starter motor and get you mowing again!
My Mower Starts but then Stalls
- The most likely cause is that your carburetor is clogged. Try cleaning your mowers carbi or bring it in and we do it for you or replace it with a new one. Always remember to not leave fuel in your mower for extended periods of not using it. Get into the habit of running your mower until it is out of fuel.
- The Spark Plug may need to be cleaned or replaced
- The Fuel Cap of your mower may be clogged which stops the flow of fuel. Check by loosening the cap a little and start the engine then. If it does not stall after doing so the cap is most likely the issue and needs to be replaced. Don’t use your mower with a loose fuel cap, bring it in to All About Mower Repairs and we will replace it for you.
it is very hard to get my mower started
- The most likely cause is a clogged carburetor. Try cleaning it or bring it in for repair or replacement
- Check your mowers Spark Plug
- The Rubber Made Primer Bulb of your Mower may have become cracked over time and is leaking air into your fuel system. Have a look at it, usually you can see the little hairline fractures. Bring in your mower to All About Mower Repairs and we will replace the bulb for you.
My Mower is overheating
- Your mower – if it is air cooled – has cooling fins to help dissipate the heat from the mowers engine. If your mower is overheating a likely cause is that these fins are clogged up and do not allow for the cooling process to take place. If you mower engine is overheating, shut it down immediately and bring it in to All About Mower Repairs for assessment. Running an overheating mower can lead to permanent damage.
Simple Mower Maintenance Care Tips
- Check the oil of our lawn mower. Good oil is golden or amber colored, the darker it gets the more it has been used already. Change the oil of your mower every season at least and regularly visually check the condition of your mowers oil. At All About Mower Repairs we are happy to do full oil changes and servicing for you.
- Prepare your mower for long term storage. You probably won’t use your mower all winter because the growth of your lawn comes to a halt. At the end of your mowing season, replace the oil, check and replace the spark plug, clean the fuel cap and spray a lubricant on any metal parts on the underside of your mower to prevent it from rusting. Or bring it in to All About Mower Repairs for a complete mower service.
