How to Identify and Fix Common Gardening Problems ?

We provide a variety of viewpoints on how to identify and fix common gardening problems. Our sources include academic articles, blog posts, and personal essays from experienced gardeners :

Engine Fan – Most small engines don`t have coolant they are air-cooled and so they need a fan to pull cool air across the engine, and fans are noisy. Check out “Valve lash adjustment”, it`s for a walk-behind mower, but the process is the same for any OHV engine. Engine oil is another opportunity to help reduce noise.
Hearing a lawn mower engine popping sound can be startling. That noise indicates that your lawn mower is backfiring, just as similar popping sounds can signal that a car engine is backfiring.
The most common reason for a surging lawn mower engine is a blockage in the fuel supply, but there are other possibilities: Bad gas. Bad spark plug. Dirty/faulty carburetor.
This sound is the result of friction from the gear teeth meshing inside the transaxle casing. These gears will wear slightly over time, and this sound should decrease. If the noise suddenly becomes louder, we suggest that an authorized service center inspect the unit.
Worn bearings about to fail completely often make grinding noises, as well as unusual vibrations. The mandrels holding the mower deck`s cutting blades contain two bearings that need frequent lubrication to keep the bearings working properly. As bearings dry and overheat, seals fail and dirt enters the mechanism.
This can be caused by a faulty mass airflow sensor or a clogged engine air filter “choking” the engine and not allowing enough oxygen to flow into it. Or, it could be caused by leaking fuel injectors forcing too much fuel into the engine.
Best riding mower overall

The Troy-Bilt Super Bronco XP riding mower is an excellent choice for a variety of lawns. It`s built with a 24HP Kohler engine and a 54-inch cutting deck to let you handle inclines and rough terrain or haul tools, mulch, and potting soil around your property.

The symptoms that indicate a bad solenoid on a riding mower are difficulty starting the engine, engine stalls or shuts off suddenly, reduced engine power and performance. Moreover, it would also go through a decrease in fuel efficiency, and an unsteadiness in idling, lastly, the engine cranks but doesn`t start.
Loose, Dirty or Disconnected Spark Plug in Your Lawn Mower: Check it out, clean off debris, re-connect and tighten. Dirty Air Filter: Clean or replace. Fuel Not Reaching the Engine: Tap the side of the carburetor to help the flow of gas. If this doesn`t work, you might need a new fuel filter.

The most common cause of excessive vibration is an unbalanced blade. If you`ve recently had your blade sharpened, it`s possible the blade hasn`t been properly balanced during the sharpening process. To fix this, the blade should be removed, rebalanced and refitted.
