It should run ok after warming up. After starting it, let it run for a minute or so and then try gradually opening the choke. You might try increasing the throttle setting at the same time. After the motor is hot, if you have to have the throttle setting increased in order to keep it running it means the idle setting needs to be increased, usually by turning a screw to keep the fuel valve from closing so much, or that there is a problem with the fuel flow......like a clogged jet or fuel passage in the carb.

Hello, rebuilding a starter is not hard... First.. disconnect the battery!! Tie back the connector! There should be one heavy wire going to the starter.. remove it.. tie it back out of the way..There might be 2...or 3.. or 4 bolts/nuts holding the starter on, once they are removed you can remove the starter..DO NOT tap on the round outside housing!! Get a couple clean rags on your work bench.. the starter will have 2/3 long bolts -- or short bolts/nuts/screws on each end.. -CAREFULLY NOTE HOW IT COMES APART- ..remove these...once you have removed each end.. the armature is heavy and the stator is magnetized..remove the armature .. watch for falling shims/washers that belong on the shaft and make sure they go back in the same way!! Now its time to inspect the armature/commutator for wear or damage.. you need to turn/mill/machine the brush's contact area on the commutator to give the new brushes full contact (and, now, this properly done rebuild will last a long time!!).. once the area is flat, smooth, clean and de-burred you need to make sure the MICA UNDERCUT is correct..the "plastic looking" area between each of the little commutator lands must cleaned out/lightly scraped out so there is NO CHANCE the brushes will contact the undercut area! Once this is done correctly,, you will have a nice clean and freshly surfaced commutator! Make sure the bearings are free/bushings are clean, make sure the shims/washers are in place and reinstall the armature..The new brushes come as an assembly (easiest way) or two/four brushes to be installed in the old plate..(yuk)..you have to ma ke sure the brushes are pulled back/locked out of the way.. sometimes you can just move the spring off the brushes and that work great..another way to lock the "out' is with a bobby-pin/hair pin folded into a locking "spring". Once you have the armature/washers/shims/brush plate correctly assembled its time to put the bolts/nuts together and SLOWLY tight everything.. If you have done this correctly the armature should have a noticeable "rumble/feel the magnets working" when turning it by hand..thats the magnets doing their job..Check the armature shaft for excessive and play (did you leave out any shims or washers?).. if it feels right... just re-install in reverse of disassembly.Good Luck!
IF YOU CANNOT DO ALL THIS..just take the starter to a shop that you trust... Now its almost as cheap and easy just to buy a lifetime warranty one from a major auto store.

Air trapped in the fuel filter is normal. Air bubbles in a fuel line would imply a cracked fuel line.

Likely the recoil starter is kaput. Removing spark plug so there's no compression, then pull starter. If it's still hard pull, remove recoil starter assembly and spin engine by hand. If engine spins freely, replace recoil start.

Familiarize yourself with fender deck footrest attachment points.

You have to remove the seat and the fender deck footrest. Pedals, cut height adjuster knob and whatever else.

Sorry.This is not a shop. Try the manufacturers agent.

Probably switch is bad and should be replaced. Temporarily you could short wires going to the switch but you have to remember that you no longer will have that safety feature and machine could be started without operator on the seat or could drive itself when operator is no longer on the seat.

Damaged shear pin. Need to be replace. Another possibility is broken drive belt

Garden | Answered on Dec 01, 2019

Many factors are involved. The abrupt change in environment is the most likely cause. This includes sunlight, soil moisture, relative humidity, and ambient temperature.

It could also be if the entire plant was in full bloom (no immature buds) it ran through it's normal bloom cycle.

So it's difficult to say which of the many factors are the main problem.
