DIY Walk-Behind Mower Repair

Don’t let your grass grow out of control because your push lawn mower won't start, vibrates too much or doesn't cut well. Let Sears PartsDirect show you how to fix your walk-behind lawn mower, with troubleshooting tips and videos and step-by-step repair guides.

Preventive maintenance can go a long way toward keeping your mower in good operating condition. Tune up the mower at the beginning of each season and learn how to replace the cutting blade to get the mowing season off to a good start.

If you pull the starter rope and nothing happens, watch our Lawn Mower Won't Start video to figure out what’s wrong. If your mower starts but won’t move, there’s a good chance the mower’s drive system might be to blame. Get your mower moving again using the DIY troubleshooting tips in our Motion Drive Failure video. If you have a different problem with your mower, check out our articles and video page for additional troubleshooting tips.

Once you find out what part to replace, our DIY repair guides give you detailed instructions to complete the job and get your lawn mower working again.
