Your Husqvarna walk-behind lawn mower helps you enjoy the great outdoors and keep your lawn looking its best throughout the year. When your mower starts sputtering or fails to start, however, try these troubleshooting tips to get it back up and running.
Electric-start lawn mowers must be charged up before each use. If your mower doesn't start up on command, try charging the battery overnight. If the battery still doesn't hold a charge, replace it before moving on to troubleshoot the other lawn mower parts.
Gas-powered lawn mowers have carburetors installed to ensure an efficient mix of fuel and air. Unfortunately, carburetors are prone to blockage over time. If your mower's carburetor is blocked or damaged, the mower either fails to start or sputters and cuts out during use. Try cleaning the carburetor thoroughly first, making sure no holes are clogged. If the problem persists, you may need to seek professional lawn mower repair help to replace the carburetor.
Lawn mowers kick up a lot of grass and dust as they mow, which makes their air filtration systems especially vulnerable to clogging by fine particulates in the air. A clogged air filter restricts air flow into the engine, and the sputtering it causes can be mistaken for a worn-out carburetor. Clean out the air filter, or replace it if it is damaged.
