You may just need to remove the nut that holds the float bowl, and inspect the nut itself, half way up the nut should be a little tiny hole in the side.
use a bread tie stripped of the plastic covering and unclog this little hole, then replace the nut , when that hole becomes plugged the main jet cannot get fuel for the venturi pipe, thus the mower will start and hit a couple times then die immediately, that may fix the problem

I have the same mower, a 2004 murray 20112x92a and just tore down the carb only to find out the hardware store didn't have the diaphram part. The mower ran fine for 10 minutes until I turned it off. I went to start it 5 minutes later and it does the same thing again -- start and then dies.

I think its the carb bowl, does anyone have a video on how to tear it down? its not a simple as removing one bolt on this model, also its the briggs and stratton motor

Sounds like either water in carb bowl or plugged high speed jet - if you dont know what a carb is its not something you better do yourself send to nearest repair shop -

I have a John Deere JS30 self propelled lawn mower I had issues with it running for 15 minutes and then it stops running. Was low on oil. Added oil over the full line now it runs for 3 min and dies


Wayne, correct your oil level to full line, change your spark plug and try mower. If still acting up after a couple minutes, the Gas cap vent may be plugged, remove or loosen cap to see if mower will run longer and better. If no improvement, the carburetor is dirty and needs cleaned or rebuilt.

Could be 2 things: a restriction in your fuel line/coming out of the tank, or 2: a dirty carburetor needing to be removed, cleaned and possibly rebuilt and reinstalled. Hope it's one of those.Start with pulling the fuel line loose from the carburetor. If you have fuel flowing freely, plug the hose with a golf tee and move onto removing the carburetor. Carb kits are cheap and easy to install. It's best to rebuild while you have it off to avoid similar problems later.

Sounds like you will need to clean your carburetor.
Be sure to use compressed air to blow out all the fuel and air passages.
Sometimes you can get by with priming the carburetor a few times, and letting it run a few times like that and it will flush the gunk out of the jets,but most of the time you will need to rebuild the carburetor.
If the mower/weedeater is over a couple years old, then I also recommend that you buy and install a new carburetor repair kit,because the diaphragm will get hard and that will cause it to be hard to crank.
When you clean your carburetor and remove the jet screws, You will first seat the jet screws and count the number of turns it takes to seat the jets from their original position.
That way when you go to put the jets back in, you know how many turns they were in/out.
Please rate me,
Thanks
Good Luck,
I hope this helped

My lawn mower just quit running it is two years .Ino it is a fuel problem but what /


If you KNOW FOR A FACT that it is a fuel problem you might try removing and cleaning the carburetor float bowl and the main jet in the carburetor.
I can't offer much advice when you don't specify what engine it has or what is the model number of the mower.
There are as many or more different combinations in lawnmowers as there are in cars thus we need to know more information when you ask for assistance or we just have to guess!

My lawn mower tries to start but then dies shortly thereafter.


Probably. Does it start after you push the primer and then die? If so, yes, it's the carb. For any more info, I'd have to have the model and type #'s off the engine. Dwain
