A reliable walk-behind mower is ideal for keeping residential lawns well-trimmed. It is also helpful for small commercial lots. Keeping your walk-behind lawn mower operational takes routine maintenance and occasional repairs when parts wear out or the mower is not running well. Installing new Swisher walk-behind lawn mower parts helps keep your lawn mower working at peak performance.
Gas-powered mowers have a lot of moving parts, most of which need oil to keep from grinding or overheating. An old or clogged oil filter can block the flow of oil to the other lawn mower parts, causing the motor to run roughly or to wear out sooner than normal. Replace the oil filter with your mower's regular oil change, and inspect the new filter if the mower suddenly starts smoking or running hot.
Air filters screen dust and airborne lawn clippings out of the air that the mower's engine uses for combustion. Because most mowers produce large amounts of airborne debris, air filters can quickly clog and restrict air flow to the engine. Before seeking professional lawn mower repair help, try changing the air filter and running the mower to see if normal air flow has been restored.
Spark plugs deliver the spark that ignites the fuel-air mixture inside the engine's cylinders. If these components run low on power, or if they are used past their normal service life, they may begin sparking irregularly or stop altogether. Unscrew the old plugs and install new ones to improve the efficiency of each stroke.
