When making some adjustments on a mower I know how important it is to have detailed instructions to make the project much easier. While you are waiting for your expert answer, I suggest you add to the thread of this question and include the full model number of your appliance so that the expert can provide you with a more detailed answer. I did manage to find a link that will provide you with some good tips to help you with your answer. I hope my link is useful.

Thank you for your question.

I am sorry you are having a problem with the mower. Most of the carburetor used on engines now cannot be adjusted. If the engine is surging or starts and stops, I recommend cleaning the carburetor. Usually all it needs is to have the holes in the jets cleaned out. I have found a video on how to clean the carburetor on most of our mowers. Please click


to watch the video.

If you need further assistance on the mower, please reply below with a model number and more details.

If you do not feel confident repairing this problem yourself, then you can have it repaired by a Sears technician. Here is a link that will provide the nearest drop-off locations:
