I feel your frustration, Nameless, re: mowers.

I usually mow once a week too, it’s a good way to get my exercise.

Last week, while I mowed the back 40, I stopped it, as I went in to get a drink of water.
When I came back out, I found I couldn’t get the *@(@!!* started again. Hubs came out to
check it out, and it was the old and worn filter. Went to get a new one, and now it works like
a charm.

Good luck! and hope it doesn’t cost you an arm & leg to get fixed.

Thanks, Nameless for post, and Joanne for cross-posting.

Machines have a habit of not playing well with others just to mess with us.!

I use to have the pleasure of mowing my lawns many years ago, but when the water company was making a big stink about the drought, I had mine, both front and back removed and had pavers put in. It was a costly ordeal, but well worth it.
I like you, had problems with my mover in those days. It was a gas powered one and would have times when it didn't want to work properly. Kind of like a car. 
Good luck, I hope your mower is repairable, and doesn't cost you too much.
Have a nice weekend Thanks Joanne

I'm glad that you did not fight with the mower, especially if it is a gas run little beast, with a pull cord: I just found out that when I fought with mine, many years ago, I tore my rotator cuff. Long story short: one last recent, insult to it and now I need a shoulder replacement…surgery on June 12th.
