White smoke emanating from lawn mower

Hello folks,

I’ve been the owner of a Husqvarna Z246i mower for just under 4 months now, and I completed my first major service yesterday – I replenished all the fluids including the transmission fluid and the engine oil. However when I start the mower, white smoke comes from the unit. What’s the problem with my mower?


Hello Melvin,

Considering you’ve owned your mower now for just under 6 months and it is fairly new, there shouldn’t be any problems with it – the white smoke that you see is most likely to be from oil that may have dripped onto the unit while you were refilling oil in the unit. I just suggest that the next time you ensure that you wipe any spilt oil after the service.
