What Are Some Common Lawn Boy Mower Problems?

One common consumer complaint with Lawn Boy mowers is that the mower refuses to start. This can be caused by several common problems, including a dirty air filter, old spark plugs, stale fuel or a drained battery.

Fuel more than 30 days old becomes stale and may prevent a Lawn Boy mower from starting. Fresh fuel is necessary for successful engine functioning. Mower owners should also replace dirty air filters as often as possible as a dirty filter impedes air intake to the engine. For electric start models, users must charge the mower´s battery at the beginning and end of the mowing season. To ensure motor start-up, users should replace old, dirty or worn spark plugs as well as a good spark more easily ignites the fuel in the engine.
