Problems With Husqvarna Lawn Mowers

By Melody Lee ; Updated September 21, 2017

Husqvarna produces a full line of walk-behind and ride-on mowers to fit any size yard. Both types are equipped with ergonomic controls and safety features for comfort and protection. Problems with Husqvarna lawn mowers are typically simple to diagnose and easy to repair.

Engine Won't Turn Over

If the engine on your Husqvarna lawn mower won't crank or turn over, make sure you are sitting in the seat properly to engage the safety switch and that the deck and the parking brake are disengaged.

Engine Won't Start

When the engine of your Husqvarna lawn mower turns over, but doesn't start, make sure the throttle is in the correct position. Check the spark plug for proper adjustment, dirt or damage, and the spark plug wires for loose connections or breaks. Old or contaminated fuel, plugged fuel lines and dirty fuel or air filters also cause a lawn mower engine to be hard to start.

Discharging or Bagging Problems

If your Husqvarna mower is not discharging or bagging the cut grass properly, you may be mowing too fast or with the throttle set too low. Tall or wet grass is difficult to cut and blow out the discharge area.

Excessive Vibration

Loose or broken blades, pulleys, spindles or belts can cause your Husqvarna lawn mower to vibrate excessively. Loose or missing engine-mounting bolts, as well as an unlevel deck can also cause vibration.
