Small Engine Maintenance Tips
- The air filter on your gas engine should be cleaned every 25 hours of use. The filter needs to stay clean and be in good condition in order to stop dirt, dust, and debris from getting into the engine. Foam air filters should be washed with soapy water, wrung dry, and soaked in engine oil before being returned into the mower. Air filters made out of paper cannot be cleaned or reused. Paper air filters need to be replaced.
- Dirt and residue should be regularly cleaned from the gas engine fuel filters. It is important to note that if dirt and debris cannot be completely removed, the fuel filter should be replaced. There are two possible locations for the fuel filter on your gas engine: in the fuel line or inside the fuel tank.
- The oil level in your lawn mower, and other outdoor equipment, should be rechecked every 8 hours of use. To keep your gas engine running seamlessly change the oil every 50 hours of use. Oil, when it is new, clean and fresh is a clear, golden color. As the oil gets old and dirty it turns darker and murkier.
- Before storing your lawn mower, and other outdoor equipment, away for the winter, make sure that it will come back to life once spring arrives. Spray a degreaser on the greasy, dirty areas of your machine, let it sit for fifteen minutes or so, then wipe with a clean cloth. Rinse your lawn mower with a hose and dry it well before storing away.
- Remove dirt and debris from the cooling fins of your lawn mower by using a small bristle brush. In order to reach the cooling fins, you will need to remove the blower housing beforehand.
- Gas engines require clean, fresh fuel to perform well. When your lawn mower is being stored during the winter season, you can do one of these two things: drain the fuel from your machine or add fuel stabilizer to prevent clogs in the carburetor.
- Cover or close the fuel cap vent during the winter season, when your gas engine is being stored. It is important to replace the fuel cap, if the air vent holes are dirty and blocked.
