Q:

Handle collapsing 8-22251 Murray Lawn mower

A:

Thanks for the inquiry and for using SearsPartsDirect.com.
Sorry to hear of the issue you are having with the upper handle not staying in place while mowing, I know how frustrating that is to have occur.
I had a similar issue happen to me when I had to constantly fold my upper handle on my mower to store in the garage after use. Eventually, after having to fold up the upper handle so many times, the knobs got stripped and wouldn't hold the upper handle in position any longer, which sounds like what's happening to you. I would anticipate addressing those thumbscrews or knobs will solve the issue, but it will reoccur again in the future because of the tightening and loosening of those knobs.
For convenience, I have provided a blue link below that you may click on to be directed to the SearsParts site to view the parts we still have available for the handle. I wouldn't see a need for a replacement handle, but the wing nut, and/or locknut may need to be addressed. I would do a close visual inspection of the hardware and see if you can see any of the threads being stripped. I would replace if they are stripped. It looks like the knobs, part number 42027, have been discontinued by Murray with no direct substitute offered.

Q:

Mower engine starts but will not run for long. 8-22251 Murray Lawn mower

A:

Thanks for the inquiry and for using SearsPartsDirect.com.
Sorry to hear of the issue you are having with the primer and the engine not running right.
If you press the primer bulb and it stays depressed then the problem will be with the diaphragms in the carburetor. That would also explain the machine only running for a few seconds and then dying out. You'll need to remove the carburetor and get the brand and model information from the engine to order either a rebuild kit for the carburetor if it includes the diaphram or replace it.
Unfortunately, this model doesn't identify the engine or any of the related parts for it. In order to find engine parts, you need to identify the model and then plug that engine model into SearsPartsDirect.com. 
Hope this helps and let us know if we can be of any further assistance. Thanks for using SearsPartsDirect.com.
