Briggs and Stratton dies after 15 mins

I have a new snowblower with a Briggs and Stratton 11.00 snow series engine. On the third use, it died after 45 min of use, just after I finished a pass. It wouldn't restart until 10-15 mins. Afterward it will run until it gets warmed up and then either dies or occillates the RPM popping and spuddering as the governor tries to maintain RPM even without a load. Manually holding the throttle at the carb doesn't help greatly as it still drops it's RPM without any reason.

When cold it will start on the first try and run without a load for 10-15 mins without a problem. Oil level is fine, the sparkplug wire seems secure. Yeah it's got a warranty but I'd love to know what's up before some salesclerk gives me a story on what I did wrong.

    Had it checked out under warrantee. They couldn't find anything but they cleaned the plug and fuel bowl on the carb. I works fine now.



    I suspect that I got water in the tank somehow when I was blowing up a storm. My solution now is to clean around the gas cap after every session so the snow won't melt in the warmer garage and contaminate the gas tank.

I've got an older Grand Prix snowblower and it starts relatively well but it only runs for about 45 second and then dies. Tried squirting fuel into the carb as it dies but it still quits. Replaced the


Make sure the fuel jet in the fuel bowl is clean. That is an area to check first. I have many engines that the jet is dirty and I blow them out and away they go.

Briggs and stratton 6.5 Ohv dies after running for about 10-15 minutes. I let it sit awhile then runs again. This is a vertical shaft lawnmower engine.


This is a classic symptom of a blocked fuel cap vent. Next time it dies, remove the cap, wait 30 seconds or so (for carb to re-fill), then try to re-start. If it works, replace the cao.

Poulan Pro model 185H42ST dies after 30-45 minutes mowing


Put a carb kit in it. If that does not work replace the gas cap they are supposed to breath and if they get clogged it will create a vacuum in the tank starving the engine for fuel.
