Honda manufactures several models of 160cc lawn mowers for both residential and industrial use. Famous for reliability and their motors, issues that lead to stalling may be occasionally developed by Honda lawn mowers. Stalling can stem from a range of causes, and that means you are going to need to put on your detective cap and solve the puzzle of the mower that is stalling.
Stalling can be caused by two simple ailments which are easy for a homeowner. One illness stems from an excessive, and the other from a deficiency. Small gasoline in the tank can lead to a 160cc engine to stall. Even when there appears to be gas in the tank, then it might not be in a level. Alternatively oil may cause the engine to stall. Never overfill the oil reservoir. Drain the excess if you have added too much oil.
Just like people, engines need an adequate quantity of oxygen to function. Clogged air filter housing venting holes or a filthy air filter may make it difficult for the Honda engine to remain operational and also block the warmth. Stalling can be also caused by clogged venting holes in the gasoline cap. Remove and analyze the holes for dust, dirt and debris. If necessary, use an old toothbrush to scrub the holes and spare them .
Spark Plug Problems
If you’re at all familiar you’re probably aware that without a correctly working spark plug it’s not possible to keep the lawn mower running. Ensure that the spark plug boot is suitably on the plug, before replacing the plug. If this is the case, pull out the plug, and check for rust or accumulated dirt and dust. Clean the spark plug gently with a wire brush, and then try running the mower again. If everything else fails, replace the spark plug with a new one to avoid stalling.
If you’re not familiar with the proper way to begin and run the Honda mower, then you might be contributing to the problem. Always set the throttle lever to the”Fast” place to begin the mower. Avoid making the error by lowering the throttle speed to save gas or wear and tear on the machine that some home gardeners do. Honda advises constantly mowing with the tread put on”Fast” and using”Slow” for idling only.
