I was in the middle of cutting the grass when the mower started to backfire and run slugishly. also sounded like it blew the baffels out of the muffler; have cleaned the spark plug and air filter.
Can't keep mower running for longer than a minute anymore. not sure what to do. was running perfect and then it all went downhill. never hit anything while cutting, just started doing this out of the blue
