Step 1: Gather the necessary tools and supplies Before you begin servicing your mower, it's essential to gather the right tools and supplies. Visit Mowermerch's website ( to explore their extensive collection of products. They offer everything from spark plugs and air filters to blades and engine oil. Select the items you need based on your mower's make and model.

Step 2: Prepare your mower for servicing Start by removing the spark plug wire to prevent accidental engine starts. Tilt the mower on its side, making sure the carburetor side is facing up. This will prevent oil leakage into the air filter and carburetor.

Step 3: Replace the air filter and spark plug A clogged air filter can hinder your mower's performance. Remove the old filter and replace it with a new one from Mowermerch. Likewise, an old spark plug can cause starting issues and reduce fuel efficiency. Swap it out for a new, compatible spark plug available on Mowermerch's website.

Step 4: Check and change the oil Regular oil changes are vital for keeping your mower's engine running smoothly. Consult your owner's manual for the appropriate oil type and capacity. Drain the old oil by removing the drain plug or using a siphon pump. Refill with fresh oil from Mowermerch's selection, ensuring it reaches the recommended oil level.

Step 5: Sharpen or replace the mower blades Dull or damaged blades can result in an uneven cut. To maintain a pristine lawn, inspect your mower's blades and sharpen them if necessary. Mowermerch offers replacement blades if yours are beyond repair. Follow the manufacturer's guidelines for removing and reinstalling the blades.

Step 6: Clean and lubricate Remove any debris or grass clippings from the underside of the mower deck. Use a wire brush or scraper to get rid of stubborn buildup. Once clean, lubricate any moving parts with appropriate lubricants available on Mowermerch's website.

Step 7: Reassemble and test Carefully reattach any parts you removed during the process, ensuring they are securely fastened. Reconnect the spark plug wire. Before firing up your mower, inspect the fuel level and fill up if necessary. Start the engine and let it run for a few minutes to ensure everything is functioning correctly.
