Hi everyone... First off, I just want to say that I am not savvy when it comes to this stuff but I need some help. I have a Yard Machines Push-Mower (158cc I believe) that I bought from Home Depot about a year ago. I have used it several times and always had trouble starting it, but I always eventually got it to start and stay on. Now, it won't start at all. I push the prime button, pull the cord, then it dies in about less than five seconds. The only way it will actually stay running is if I constantly push the prime button while it is running (which is impossible to do in order to push the mower). I went to Home Depot, they told me that I possibly needed a new filter but I told them that the mower is practically brand new. So, they told me to clean the filter by soaking it in gas, squeezing out the gas and then let it air dry... so I did. I also put new gas in the mower, and took apart the carb. The carb was perfectly clean considering I used the mower only a handfull of times. I have no idea what else to do or how to get it started. I can't return/exchange it because it is past their 30 day policy.
