How do you repair a lawn mower?

Thumbtack Editors

Repairing a lawn mower requires a few skills and tools. The first step is to determine what's causing your lawn mower to malfunction and the type of repair needed.

Is your lawn mower not starting? Is it breaking down in the middle of mowing your lawn? Is it smoking or overheating? Depending on the issue, you'll need to follow specific instructions to troubleshoot and solve the problem.

If you don't have the experience, skills or knowledge needed to fix a lawn mower, consider hiring a repair technician instead of DIY-ing this task.
