Several Possibilities

Hello newtohome

Unknown what type, brand and model mower you have, as the header indicates, there could be any one of several possibilities.

Choke could be sticking.
Spark plug may be fouled, etc.
Restricted fuel supply
Gummed up carb.
Plugged or restricted vent hole in fuel cap.

Check for a restricted fuel supply. This can range from fuel flow from the tank, through any inline filter, low fuel level in the carb bowl or a restricted carb.

Check the spark plug. Be sure it's the correct heat range plug for the engine. A plug that runs too hot can cause minor lean burning.

Check the air filter. A dirty, clogged or additional wet paper air filter can drastically restrict air flow causing an excessively rich fuel mixture, rough running, carbon buildup, fouled spark plugs and black exhaust smoke.

Check the archives, within this forum, for other postings and replies on this topic for additional information.

Regards and Good Luck,
