Your Snapper riding mower and tractor makes the task of maintaining your large lawn both enjoyable and simple. While you can typically count on your mower to work reliably, from time to time you may notice that it's leaking oil or gasoline. If this occurs, you should take care of the problem immediately for safety's sake, as well as to improve the efficiency of the mower. Here are some troubleshooting tips to help you out.
You may be able to spot oil stains on the pavement to help you figure out where the leak is coming from, or possibly you may be able to smell gas fumes and track the leak in that way. Ensure your lawn mower is in a well-ventilated spot when you look for a gas leak. Look for a cracked fuel line or other sources of a leak.
Routine maintenance can go a long way to keeping your mower running well. Replace riding mower parts like the air filter, spark plug, oil filter and fuel filter and refill the oil when you're getting your riding mower back in shape. Your inspection also gives you the chance to look for leaks. Other crucial steps of your regular maintenance include checking the battery, ignition and throttle.
Carburetor problems can cause your riding mower to run roughly due to a failure to mix gasoline and air in the right proportions. Consider rebuilding or replacing the carburetor. If you experience low compression with the mower, the problem may be the head gasket. Seek out lawn tractor repair help from Sears PartsDirect to help you solve the problem.
