Your Kmart walk-behind lawn mower helps you keep your yard well-maintained so your family can relax and enjoy being outdoors. Once in a while, though, you may find that your lawn mower isn't cutting grass well. When this occurs, check through this simple troubleshooting list to help discern the problem and get your lawn mower running well again.
You're able to set the height of the wheels on your walk-behind lawn mower, and if they're too high, they simply are not going to cut the grass the way you want them to. If they're too low, they may end up scraping the grass off the dirt. Start your troubleshooting by adjusting the height of the wheels, making sure that they're all at the same level for even cutting.
Routine maintenance such as tune-ups can go a long way to keeping your walk-behind lawn mower working properly. Especially if you store your lawn mower for the winter, make sure to give it a tune-up before putting it back into regular use. You can find all the lawn mower parts you need for a tune-up, including the air filter, spark plug and oil, at Sears PartsDirect.
If your lawn mower blade has become dull, it may shred the grass rather than cutting it cleanly. If it's imbalanced or otherwise damaged, it may also cut unevenly and leave your lawn looking less than perfect. Make sure to replace the blade as well if it's bent or chipped, and get any lawn mower repair help you need by calling Sears PartsDirect.
