When you look at the lawn you've just mowed with your Remington walk-behind lawn mower, you feel a sense of pride in how great it looks. Sometimes, though, your walk-behind lawn mower may start to run a bit rough. Here are some troubleshooting tips to take you through the preventative maintenance steps you need to keep your lawn mower in tip-top condition.
Changing your lawn mower's oil regularly is crucial to extending the life of the engine because old oil isn't as able to lubricate the mower's moving parts. Change the oil every 50 hours of use. In addition, if you have to store your lawn mower for the winter, give it new oil before packing it away. Change the oil filter and air filter as well because they don't work efficiently when clogged.
Keeping your lawn mower's engine properly tuned up increases its efficiency and extends its life. In addition to changing the oil and air filter, replace the spark plug on a regular basis. All the lawn mower parts and supplies you need for these preventative maintenance chores are available at Sears PartsDirect.
The blade of your walk-behind lawn mower must be sharp to cut the grass properly. Sharpen the blade on a regular basis. If you notice that your lawn mower's blade appears bent, chipped or otherwise damaged, replace it, and seek other lawn mower repair help if necessary.
