Western Auto walk-behind lawnmowers are ideal for small yards and landscaping projects. They are easy to operate and ensure the task is finished in a timely and professional manner. Sometimes you may find your smooth-running machine begins to vibrate more than usual. If so, it may not be working in top form, and you should follow these simple checkup tasks.
Sometimes the bolts on the blade or engine come loose from long-time use or because of a bump or jolt when working on an uneven lawn. If the installment of the blade is imbalanced or loose, the performance of your Western Auto walk-behind lawnmower gets affected. Also, excessive vibration from loose bolts on the engine mount could lead to further damage to your machine. Make sure these bolts are as tight as possible.
To ensure long-term superior performance of your lawnmower, perform regular tune-ups. Change the oil, spark plugs and air filter on a regular basis, depending on how often you use your lawn mower. Choose the necessary parts to complete your tune-up from Sears PartsDirect wide selection of lawn mower parts.
If the mower still vibrates, inspect the condition of your lawnmower blade. If it is chipped, bent, cracked or damaged in anyway, it isn't going to cut cleanly and evenly, and it needs to be replaced. For a video and written instructions of how to replace your lawnmower blades, consult the lawnmower repair help section at Sears PartsDirect.
