Runs poorly

With a little maintenance
you can get your lawnmower
running in top form.


A lawnmower has a small
gasoline engine that works
well for a long time
without much service.
Perhaps this is the reason
that little is done, until
one has to do something.

Eventually the small engine
runs poorly and the
lawnmower cannot do its
job properly.

How frustrating when you
have the time to cut a
lawn and the lawnmower
will not start or runs poorly.

To get your lawnmower
back in the running,
do these following simple

Open the cover over the air
cleaner, located near the
Usually just release a plastic
clip to open.

If the air filter is a corrugated
paper type, brush it clean
with a paint brush or
replace it.

If the air cleaner is a foam

since you did any
maintenance, replace the
spark plug.

Carefully dump any fuel
in the fuel tank into a container,
which you can use in your
vehicle as it will mix with
a larger amount of fuel
and be okay.

Do not use the same fuel
from a container that
you used for your
lawnmower, as it looks like
the fuel is outdated and
may have become stale.

Use fresh gasoline.

Remove the spark plug wire
from the spark plug and
turn your lawn mower on
its side.

Use a sharp stick and scrape
away all the grass and dirt
embedded on the frame.

Follow up with a garden
hose and wash the top
and underside of the

This is also a good time to
remove the cutting bar
and sharpen.

Replace the spark plug

Your lawnmower is ready
to go.

A lawnmower that starts
and runs a few minutes
and stops is usually due
to a fuel cap where the
breather hole has
become plugged.
