    Alright Ive Had About Enough I Have My Mower In The Shop To Have Them Fix The Problem With It Not Starting All The Time There Always Saying Its The Valves Ive Took It In There 3 Times And They Say The Same Thing So This Time I Call And Ask If Its Done They Say Yes And That I Owe 106.00
    Im Like What Its Still Under Warranty Hes Says They Gave It A Oil Change A New Filter And Gave Me A New Set Of Keys Cause I Was Using A Flat Head To Start It. Well I Didnt Ask For Any Of This, Just To Fix The Problem With It, Not Starting All The Time. I Can Give It A Oil Change And New Filter And I Dont Need A Key The Flat Head Works Just Fine. So What Do You Guy's Think I Should Do Or Is This Legeal For Them To Do I Dont Want To Have To Pay 106.00 Dollars.

    I don't know about your mower, but I think there might be something wrong with the period button on your keyboard.

    Hey Dude...just gotta say your auto capping of every word is highly irritating and makes your posts difficult to read. Fix that please!

    Now, it's under warranty still? You bought it there? They did not call you for approval for the extra expense of $106.00? Your correct that is BS!!!!
    Valve problems already is a red flag to me.
    I think you might have got a lemon. If they insist you pay the $106.00
    (rediculous price for an oil/filter chng & key anyway)
    Tell them you want to speak to the owner if you are speaking to the owner already tell him you want a replacement new mower for that POS lemon he sold you. Nicely, calmly and firmly.

    No but if you modify or rig up your machine in any kind of way then that also voids the warranty, so as much as you believe your screwdriver works so well, perhaps that was the reason it wasn't starting some of the time... because maybe the screwdriver twisted or otherwise broke a contact or caused a short in that switch (it is an ignition 'switch' which means it has sensitive electrical components), and if that part caused the problem then it is your fault.
    And if the rest of the machine was in the same kind of shape, perhaps they felt it would be wise to change the oil, I did not see the oil but if it was black...?
    Now I get tired of it too, I got charged for an echo coil and they're ALL supposed to be under lifetime warranty but what frustrated me was waiting 2 months for them to get it fixed, the repair cost wasn't the worst part by far, a hundred or so dollars is cheap.

    THANK YOU.

    Nothing pisses me off more than trying to read one long paragraph with zero punctuation. The world's longest run-on sentence. Etc...

    LOL..There will be 100 posts about how awful it was to read his/her post when all anyone had to do in the beginning was hit the back button (top left on the browser) to exit it. So, not only was it read, but you allowed yourselves to build up anger from it and exposed your weaknesses.


    Folks..........if you open a post and it is one that even remotely appears to be difficult to read and/or follow....here's a tip.




























    DONT READ IT. And if you do, don't slam the person. How old are we?
