Rated 1 out of 5 by from Self Propel Stopped Working, Less than a Year Later Bought this mower back in September of 2019. I have used it now probably less than 20 times and the Self Propel feature failed right in the middle of mowing the back yard! Before this mower I had a Sears Craftsman self propelled mower for 20 years and NEVER had a problem with the self propel feature. Very Unsatisfied, Frustrated ... and more....

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Mower After only three uses, the plastic pieces that hold the plastic grass exit unit (that pitches the grass out to the side) broke...and doesn't seem to be fixable. Otherwise the mower works well but can only use the grass catcher now and not the 'pitcher'

Gave up on it and hired a kid to mow with his mower. When he was no longer available tried to start the beast and it wouldnt start... even though it had been stored in a garage all winter

I have reviewed the comments from the buyers and noticed the main issue of this mower is related to the self propelled . Just wondering if the the self propelled function can be overrided and using push only.

Asked by: New buyer
You can use the push option without holding the bottom lever. The self propelled on my unit does not work properly anymore and I only bought this mower last July.

I just purchased this machine, and I didnt receive some parts.. namely the bolt to put the handle together, the side discharge cover, and no manual. how do I obtain these?

Asked by: Nick
I'd definitely be paying Home Depot a visit to have them butcher a stock unit for your parts and let them deal with it

I cannot find the series number either on the machine or in the bag of manual data.

Asked by: Christina
Hi, Christina, and thank you for your question about the PowerSmart 22" lawn mower. If you are referring to the serial number, it is on the grass flap on the back of the mower.

Nice lawn mower but the self propelled feature is way to slow can this be sped up a little? Would changing wheel size help this?

Asked by: Brian
Hi Brian, and thank you for your question about the PowerSmart 22" lawn mower. There is not a way to change the self-propelled speed. Changing the wheels would not help. If you put larger wheels on, they would make fewer RPMs but at the same speed. If you put smaller wheels on, they would make more RPms, but again at the same speed.
