They include a bottle of 4 cycle 30w oil that is just the correct amount for your mower. I saved the bottle to use as a measure for when I change the oil so I get just the right amount.

Engine blowing white smoke?

I changed the oil for the first time and replaced it with the proper amount of oil. Now when I go to use the mower it starts up fine but after a few minutes of use it starts to smoke and the engine gets real hot. What do I do ?

answer 2
My guess is you used the wrong oil. You should use SAE30. I would change it. The wrong oil will ruin the engine.

answer 3
Did you get oil in the carb. filter. If so, because it's a foam filter, it could take it some time to all get out. This typically happens if you flip the mower up to change anything underneath. Just watch your level and make sure there's plenty oil. You will probably see the smoke problem vanish.
answered 5 months, 1 week ago

answer 4
Recheck the oil level. These engines are very critical on oil level and will smoke and cause to run hot if even the slighted over full. I believe 500cc is the proper amount.

answer 6
Check engine oil level and fill to appropriate level on dipstick if needed. It's possible excess oil leaked in into the pistons when you tipped the unit on its side. This smoke should dissapate within a few minutes. If the smoke does not stop, take to dealer for a closer inspection.

Question

Does this need to mix oil with gas? Before starting does it need to be choked?

asked 1 year, 8 months ago
By
Dom
on Murray 22" Gas-Powered High-Wheel Lawn Mower
6 answers
Answers
answer 1
No on the oil and gas mix! It has separate places to add each!

As far as choking it, you need to "prime" it, by pushing the little bubble like button on the side 6 times. This brings gas into the carburetor.
answered 1 year, 2 months ago
By
Wilcoxmad
answer 2
Don't mix the gas & oil. They have 2 separate tanks, one for each. The mower doesn't have a choke. Just prime it and go!

NO. 4-stroke engine. Separate openings for oil and gas. The fuel line needs to be primed, you push the well-marked little priming nipple 3 times.

no mixing, straight gas into the tank; no choking or throttle adjustment. Just push the primer button three times, pull the starter one time, and you're off and running.

Question

I do not want to mulch. What do I need to do exactly to use this as a side discharge mower?

Do I only need to remove the plastic piece that covers the discharge opening? How do I do that?

First, lift the spring loaded side discharge chute and hold it up. Then, with your other hand, pry up the top rear corner of the plastic hole cover until it pops loose (prying with a screwdriver is easier). Then pry up the hole cover top front corner until it pops loose. Now you can lift the hole cover off. Lower the side discarge chute, and start mowing.

Hi Diane
The mulcher piece just snaps on. Pull up on one side until it pops off and then the other. Put it aside and mow away.

Very simple.....just lift up the discharge shoot, and take hold of the plastic cover that covers the discharge opening. Pull upward and outward and it snaps right out. Then the mower is ready for full side discharge.

answer 4
It's kinda awkward but you have to lift the spring loaded side door and then use a screwdriver to pry off that plastic discharge cover. It lifts on the same direction as the chute cover.
Get help from someone to hold that thing lifted while you remove it.
Once you take that plastic cover, you install the discharge "exit" which just plugs in and the spring loaded side-door, now holds the chute in place.

raise up the black thingy and just pull up and it unsnapps. I thought I had to undo the silver rod but no, the mulcher blocky thingy just snapps on the rod.

No need to remove the plastic mulch plug as it's attached to the mower. To side discharge, lift up the mulch plug (it's spring loaded) and insert the side discharge chute that was provided with your mower. It inserts where the hinge mechanism is that holds the mulch plug to the mower. Ther are no tools required. When the time comes to mulch, simpily lift up mulch plate and remove side discharge chute.
