A Murray walk-behind lawn mower can be a crucial tool for keeping your lawn and garden looking fantastic. If over time you find that your lawn mower isn't running well any longer, it may need some preventative maintenance and repairs. Here are some troubleshooting tips to get your walk-behind lawn mower back to its normal excellent condition.
If you're having problems getting your lawn mower to start, check the battery. It may need to be recharged overnight or even replaced. Walk-behind lawn mower batteries are among the lawn mower parts you can find readily available at Sears PartsDirect.
Lawn mowers require regular maintenance, especially after they've been stored away for the winter. Give your walk-behind lawn mower a little tender loving care by changing the oil after every 50 hours of use. Changing the air filter and spark plug can also extend the life of the mower and improve its efficiency. Don't forget to check the blade as well; if you see any chipping, bending or other damage, you should replace it.
If a walk-behind lawn mower is still running roughly after you've performed your routine maintenance, you may be in need of more lawn mower repair help. The problem could be a clogged carburetor. Over time, jets and orifices in carburetors can become jammed, preventing the carburetor from doing its job of mixing air and fuel appropriately. While it's possible to rebuild a lawn mower carburetor, it's usually more cost-effective just to replace it.
