Mower is difficult to start or stops after running
If you experience difficulty starting a mower or if your mower stops after running, you could be experiencing the symptoms of a dirty carburetor. The carburetor is responsible for blending the right mixture of air and fuel. If the carburetor is dirty, the correct mixture is not dispensed. Fortunately, the carburetor is very easy to remove and clean. The carburetor looks like an upside down bell. Simply remove it using a socket ranch. Clean it and put it back together.
