Honda HRR216VXA Starting Trouble

I have a new Honda HRR216VXA mower that I've used once. It worked fine the first time. Now the mower will not start unless the air filter is taken off. Once started it will not run unless the airfilter is off. If I put the airfilter on, the airfilter sucks into the carb.? and there is no airflow.

To me it sounds as if the filter is plugged... Try a new one... You only used it once & it's brand new??? Does the filter look dirty or did it get wet?? If not the filter,, @ least you have warranty & a spare filter for later.. Roger

Agreed, sounds like a bad filter. If it ever got wet, it will not work right even if it dries and looks good. Replace the filter.

Agreed - I'd change out the filter... That seems pretty odd though! Good thing you got a warranty!
