Professional landscapers and homeowners alike depend on top-notch Companion walk-behind lawn mower parts to ensure their yards look great. The most common problem that arises during mower operation is that the machine does not cut properly. There are several ways to troubleshoot this issue.
The walk-behind lawn mower blade is what cuts the lawn precisely and gives grass that clean-cut look. If the blade is bent, chipped, broken or damaged in any way, it cannot cut the lawn properly and must be replaced. Be sure to disconnect the spark plug wire and tip the mower on its side before replacing the blade. Browse Sears PartsDirect's supply of lawn mower parts for help finding a replacement blade.
A lawn mower repair help tip to ensure smooth operation is to tune up the walk-behind lawn mower. Tuning up the mower includes changing the oil, spark plug and air filter. When performing a tune up, be sure to let the engine cool first, and wear gloves to protect your hands. When changing the spark plug, disconnect the spark plug wire first.
The carburetor is essential for mixing the proper amount of gasoline and air to ensure smooth mower operation. When a jet or opening in the carburetor is clogged, the machine cannot run efficiently. If the engine sputters or dies upon starting the mower, the carburetor must be replaced. Replacing the carburetor is more cost effective than rebuilding it.
