Even lawn equipment that comes from the best manufacturers will normally require some type of lawn mower repair, whether replacing a part or completing a tune up. Most often, repairs are necessary because of lack of maintenance to their push mower or riding lawnmower.
Naturally, prevention is much better than the cure. By doing maintenance checks regularly on your lawn and garden tools and equipment, such as before winter storage and before spring usage, you may be able to save yourself from some costly repairs. It is also a good idea to scrape the underneath of the mower and use an air compressor to clean the air filter and carburetor.
Sometimes only a small repair is needed, such as sharpening or replacing the lawn mower blades or replacing a clogged fuel filter, which may be one cause for the mower not starting or why it stalls. The exact lawn mower repair needed can be tricky to locate because in most cases the actual problem may not show up in the part that needs to be repaired, but rather somewhere else in the machine. Sometimes replacing a spark plug may help but you also need to get the carburetor looked at because many times snags in the carburetor will cause this to happen.
If you do not have a working knowledge of lawn mowers parts and repair, then look at every symptom or problem and try to find the cause; this is a good way to start. Does the machine vibrate when it runs or does it just not start?
If not starting is the problem, then it may simply be out of fuel or the ration of the fuel mix may be incorrect. However, you may not be able to figure out what is wrong or you may find during the process that certain parts are bad or it may need some other serious repair.
Sometimes you are not able to figure out what the problem is or how to fix it and that is a good time to call a professional to come out and take a look at the mower. Often times they can either help you figure out the problem or tell you if you have been doing something incorrectly, which may have caused the necessary lawn mower repair.
Try to get several different opinions and estimates so that you will know what the average cost of repairs should be. If it is too costly, then you may even decide to purchase a new one rather than having repairs done, only to have something else happen a short time later.
