My mower is not collecting the grass in the catcher, it sits in the body or spreading all over the grass, what do i do the mower is only 1 year old
Has the mower ever collected the grass or is this a recent problem?
If it's been like this from day one then I know this sound like a silly question but do you have the mulching plug fitted? If you have the mulching plug fitted then remove and it should be okay.
If the problem has only just recently appeared then check your blades. Ensure they're the correct ones for the model, aren't worn out, and that they're free to swing out when the mower is running.
When you're mowing, go in a clockwise direction or have the uncut grass on the right hand of the mower.
The blade spin clockwise (when viewed from above) and the grass chute in on the right side of the mower.
Could also be wet grass that does clump but there should still be some grass going into the catcher.
I have a 190c EA190V RLM4619SMB model, it suddenly wont start
I find the mower is sometimes hard to start if it's been sitting unused for a few months (e.g. over winter).
Topping up with fresh petrol and cleaning the spark plug usually results in the mower running correctly again.
If it has been sitting it will take a few pulls of the starter cord to fill the carb with petrol so it won't start immediately.

How does the mulched attachment fit in
I've had my mower now for around 5 years give or take, it's the 190çc Subaru version. The spring has broken for the grass flap and I can't find a replacement that is the same and all the mower shops I've asked and our two Bunnings stores in town can't find a replacement. Does anyone know where I can get one?
Has anyone ever changed the pull cord on a Ryobi 4619, any tips would be appreciated. I had the mower for two years now and have a very large garden. I have put it thru some tough stuff, but has been excellent. I keep the air cleaner clean, check the plug regularly, oil and blades. So far this is the only thing that has gone wrong, the cord just gave up. The replacement cord is $47 so forget that, thought I use some other cord, but is it a pain the change? Any tips. Thanks
Hello. My mulcher aspect is playing up. A piece/strip of black plastic fell off... not sure from where. I believe it's some sort of deal for the mulcher. Ryobi/subaru lawn mower, any help?
Had my mower for over a year. Now not starting. Any ideas?
Yes, have a couple of suggestions, firstly change the spark plug, if this is not the problem check the fuel, drain it and renew as there may be water in it due to condensation. Also check oil, motors seize and compression rings burn without it, making it hard to start.
Hope these suggestions help.

My Ryobi Subaru 190ea mower starts and idles but after 5 minutes it revs up and down before stalls?? Fuel is clean. Oil is good? Spark plug maybe? Any help please?
You have my sympathies! So annoying! If it is brand new I'd firstly try and get a free replacement sparkplug from Bunnings and try that. My problem was a little different however it was the spark plug that was faulty in my case. From the research I did, Subaru specifies a Torch brand sparkplug but the ones sold here come fitted with an NGK plug. I wonder if that is the cause of a lot of the problems you read about on this site?
In the end I had to take my mower back because it was going through spark plugs like a hot knife goes through butter. I got a replacement mower but that ended up being faulty too - oil leaked badly from the bottom gasket on the engine block! After two strikes I gave up and got my money back and am thankful my Bunnings was great to deal with. It's a shame there are so many faulty ones because they are supposed to be commercial grade engines and when running correctly are absolutely magnificent. Now I have the problem of what to replace it with - check out the terrible reviews on the newer Briggs and Stratton engines. If you rule out Subaru and Briggs it sure does not leave much - Honda is way too much overkill for my small needs (and means).
I hope my answer helps.
My ryobi is 18 months old and after using once a week has now only issues. Idles for 5 mins then revs like I am playing with the throttle then dies. I have replaced the spark plug and the air filter with new ones and still the issue continues. I cannot find any website for a help desk for Subaru or ryobi. I am now using my 20yr old Briggs that I hadn’t fired up in28 months and she burst into life
My fuel tap came off unexpectedly. Can I fix it or do I need to buy a replacement?
Hi - it usually just bolts onto the fuel valve base with a single bolt which should be easy to put back on - I found a company called toolspares.com.au that sell Ryobi parts for this mower - the fuel base part number is 400-60 16757-Z020120-00 and the fuel valve part number is 400-62 16752-Z020110-00
