If it won't shut off then the ignition is on all the time.
If the start switch won't spin the starter, then the switch is not working.
Something happened to cause this problem.
Who did what to the wires? or
It did it all by itself in which case the switch needs to be replaced.
I would use a continuity meter to check the function of the switch and make sure the wires are correctly connected.
Hope this helps.
It's one of two things. My first thought is that you have a clogged gas cap. Try loosening it when the mower starts to run ruff. If it smooths out again and runs fine, then you know that the carburetor is not venting properly. Either buy a new gas cap or clear the breathing holes in the cap, if possible.
The only other thing it can be is that your Ignition Coil is going bad. A bad Coil, once it gets hot, will shut down. But it usually takes longer than 5 minutes for them to cool down well enough to start back up.
It sounds like she's being deprived of the correct fuel / air mixture due to a dirty carburetor (the biggest problem with mowers when gas is left to sit for a period of time). If you do not know how to take the carburetor apart and clean it thoroughly, then I suggest taking it to the local shop (hardware store or mower shop) and having it tuned up. It'll probably be just fine and worth the money. Hope this helps and good luck. James
Sounds like you will need to clean your carburetor.
Sometimes you can get by with priming it 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 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, 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 do not forget to rate me, Thanks Good Luck, I hope this help
Have you checked to make sure the jet in the carburetor is cleaned out. If the mower starts with primed fuel but shuts off after that fuel is burned out, you have some blockage not allow fuel in to the intake. HTH Good Day.
