1. Dull Mower Blade

A dull mower blade can lead you to an accident and injure you badly. There are several warning signs that you can tell your mower blade is dull.

If your freshly cut grass turns white or grey after a couple of days, the mower is not able to shred the grass, and the engine is struggling to cut the grass, you can tell the blades are dull. In this case, you need to sharpen the blades to get a beautiful even lawn.

2. Power Loss While Moving

Sometimes, the riding mower might stop suddenly losing its power while driving. It’s a pretty common problem for riding mowers.

The most probable cause for this is your air filter is clogged, the fuel filter is blocked, low engine oil, or a dull blade.

If you are going uphill and your mower stops, it might be the dirt or mud that got stuck in your machine, or there is too much pressure that force stopping it.  


If you mow your lawn with too much speed, eventually, it will lose its power. Slow down to get a better-shaped grass.

3. The Mower Starts To Smoke

Sometimes, dense black or blue smoke comes from your mower. Most of the time, you can assume it has an issue with oil seals in the engine or a cracked crankcase. Different colours of smoke say the different types of problems.

A small engine repair can save you from this issue.


Smoke coming out of the mower is not a good sign. First, try to understand the problem by the smoke’s color. You can fix it at home.

4. Riding Mower Is Leaking Fuel

If you see any wet spot under the mower or burnt area in your yard, there might be a chance that your mower is leaking fuel.

Once the gas is evaporated, it would be very difficult for you to identify the leakage. But you can assume it by some common signs.

You can smell it in your garage; the carburetor might be leaking gas on your mower.

5. The mower is cutting unevenly

Sometimes your mower tends to cut unevenly, which is a sign of damaged wheels, loose, bent, or dull blade, the crankshaft bent, or the cutting deck damaged.

Check your wheels if they are not placed evenly. If any wheel is damaged, you have to replace it with a new one.


If you see your grass is long somewhere and short in some other spot, then you can be sure that your mower is not cutting evenly. You can troubleshoot this problem at home with some basic tools.

6. The mower is vibrating

Sometimes, your mower really shakes you off while riding; that’s because your mower is vibrating badly.

It happens mostly when wood or hard something is stuck in your mower or if any hardware is loose or worn.
