Wigan2000's review of Challenge Xtreme 40cm Self Propelled Rotary Mower

Challenge Xtreme 40cm Self Propelled Rotary Mower

“Terrible product - impossible to start”

Written on: 16/07/2013 by Wigan2000 (2 reviews written)

I have used this mower about 5 times and it is now impossible to get it started, let alone running long enough to cut my lawn. I changed the spark plug with no effect and the instructions are VERY poor and don't give you any hints on fixing standard faults. If you search online you can't find any help (or better instructions)from this company (or Argos) ... they just want to take your money and then take more of your money when you have to buy yet another new mower

The throttle/choke mechanism is not set correctly on these things when they come out of the box. The choke doesn't come fully on and starves the engine of fuel at startup. Try the trick above. If it works then slacken the cable clamp bolt, release the cable from the clamp and reposition the end of the throttle cable into the hole on the throttle lever that is the furthest away from the cable clamp. Put the cable back in the clamp and position it so that it is just pulling on the throttle lever when the control level is in the 'tortoise' position and tighten the clamp bolt.
