1. Loss of power while mowing. When a lawnmower produces a set of splitting sounds while in use, then this is a signal that the engine is about to stop. A dirty filter is one of the causes of power loss.
2. Smoke rising from the Lawnmower. This is one of the common problems people experience when using a mower to trim the grass. Most people believe that smoke is a sign that the engine is about to blow up.
3. Failure to start. If your lawnmower does not start, the first thing that should come into your mind is the gas tank. A lawnmower will not start if the gas tank is empty.
4. Noticeably reduced mower speeds. Damage to the drive belt or dislocation is what causes the mower to slow down considerably. The drive belt can be found in the motor casing.
5. Stuck or too hard to pull the starter rope. This issue is a result of the engagement of the flywheel brake. Before you pull the rope once more, it’s crucial to examine whether the flywheel brake is pressing against the handle.
6. Overheating. An engine may tend to overheat due to various lawn mower issues. Most people are reluctant to find out the cause of overheating as long as the mower is functional.
7. Failure of the lawnmower to cut the glass accordingly. The functionality of the lawnmower can be hugely affected by wet and long gras s. Mowing should be done during dry conditions.
8. Carburetor Challenges. Corrosion of the carburetor is one of the typical causes of carburetor problems. When the carburetor gets corroded, it can cause the lawnmower to malfunction or even to stop working altogether.
9. Bumpy Ride Barrier. There are times you may find out that your mower has started to bounce, resulting in a bumpy ride. This may be as a result of oil inadequacy.
10. Bagging, Discharging, or Mulching Poorly problems. Lawnmowers are vulnerable to mulching, bagging, and discharging. These problems occur when the engine is not functioning at full throttle as it should be.

What are the most common problems with riding lawn mowers?

"The most commonly reported problem among riding mowers had to do with the mower belt, affecting 13 percent of riding mowers," says Martin Lachter, a senior research associate at Consumer Reports. "The next most common problem was related to the bag not filling or attaching to the mower properly."
