Question by  maryam (50)

Why does my riding lawn mower engine stall when I am trying to get it to go forward?

It stalls every time.


Answer by  Grandma (66)

Lawn mowers are noted for stalling. The carburetor could need cleaning. The spark plug could need to be replaced. The air filter might be dirty and the air cannot pass through it. It needs to be cleaned. If you needed to mix oil with the gasoline and didn't, that could be the problem. Or it could be out of oil.

If it's a hydro mower (hydraulically operated) then your definately low on fluid and need hydraulic fluid. If it's gear driven then the emergency brake or seat sensor is blown.


Answer by  Jermbubba (95)

this could be caused from multiple reasons. Are you using the correct gas and oil for the engine. You should make sure to change the spark plugs ever season as well.

You should contact the manufacturer or have a service man come out and take a look at it they would probably know right away what is wrong with it.

It is probably out of gas. That is what happens to my regular lawn mower when I'm running low on fuel. Just refill the tank, then try it again.
