Smoke coming from Honda mower’s deck

Hello guys,

My one month old Honda mower was smoking on ignition yesterday! White puffs of smoke were emanating from deck, a few moments after turning on the unit. Is this a serious defect?


Hi Enrik,

Clean the surface of the deck – white smoke usually indicates burning oil and usually isn’t anything to get worried about. It’s normal actually, if you’ve just changed the oil after the first 2 hours of use (as the manual tells you to). I wouldn’t worry about it unless it doesn’t stop and begins affecting performance.
