If the Dealer didn't try this , then He's an idiot.
VENTING: Open the fuel cap a bit and see if that solves the problem. Many times the Fuel tank Vent will clog . This creates a vacuum as the engine tries to su.ck in gas. If the mower runs after loosening the cap.. then you need to find a way to clear the Vent ( usually in the cap).

SOURCE: Troy-Bilt Briggs & Stratton 550 restarting

Troy, Unless you are using old fuel (it breaks down after 1 week) it sounds like you have a faulty spark plug. Replace this first, drain any old fuel and replace with fresh fuel (premium unleaded). A faulty plug will work one minute but then fail like you have described.

SOURCE: troy bilt mower won't stay running to cut lawn

You may want to check the gas cap to see if it clogged with dirt. If the gas cap is clear, you more than likely have a carburetor problem. If you need tips on carb. cleaning, feel free to ask.

SOURCE: My troy-bilt 8.5 horse 26 inch wide snowblower wont move anymore.

Take the belt cover off that covers the drive pulley on the engine. You should only have to loosen two bolts. Inspect the belt to see what it looks like. I am not sure if it drives a gear box or if it turns a friction wheel that drives the wheels. If the belt looks good check for shear bolts that might have sheared off and replace them.

SOURCE: troy bilt mower 6.75 hp smoking too much oil...

Check oil level, it could be just excess oil. Also check air filter, it may need cleaning/replacing. Depending on how old the nower is, it could be broken rings in the engine, in that case... time for a new mower. hope this helps!

SOURCE: I have a Troy Bilt 675 lawn mower, won't start.

is the gas in the tank old? if so, try to drain it and put fresh gas in. Pull the spark plug to make sure it is not fouled and replace it or put in a new one. Check to make sure that you do not have the mixture or choke set to run too rich or too lean. If you are at an altitude above 2,500 feet you need to run more lean to compensate.

I have a 1996 John Deere 455 diesel It started running only 20 minutes before it dies for no apparent reason. After about 10 minutes it will pop right off again. The engine runs strong, no hesitation


The fuel injection pump has a fuel supply from the fuel filter and a fuel return line from the fuel injections to the fuel tank. This fuel return line is kinked or restricted in some way . Repair fuel return line and it will run. Check return line and fitting on injection pump also. If it is an electrical problem it is most likely the operator presense switch in the seat overheating and loosing connection then cooling off after a few minutes.. Check it out.

Try slackening the fuel filer cap, if the breather is blocked in the cap it will vacume and stop the fuel from flowing, if it runs ok with the cap loose replace the cap.

I have a John Deere Z820A 25 Horse Kawasaki. After about 45 minutes it acts like it is running out of gas. It will start again with the choke out, but won't run for long. I have replaced fuel...


I am an ex-z820a owner because these machines are terrible. Deere issued a PIP for these motors and maybe yours has not beed done yet. The best thing to do is get with a dealer see if the PIP has been completed then sell as fast as you can. I traded my z820a on a z920a and couldnt be happier.

When it quits remove the fuel line from the fuel pump to the carburetor and check if the pump is pumping gas while you turn the key to the start position with the brake locked. You could have a bad ignition coil.

MTD mower runs for 10 minutes then quits.


I have the same problem with mine. I have narrowed it down to a fuel problem through deductive reasoning. Try this test. Start the engine clamp the bar (keep away from the spinning blade) when the engine tries to die push the prime bulb to keep it running. This simulates a fuel pump by putting a pressure higher than atmosphere into the float bowl spraying fuel into the intake. If this is the case the line (on mine it is a black tube) connected to the engine is clogged or what it connects to in the engine is not working properly. I am looking for a diagram of the carb and the engine that is detailed but I have not found one yet.

Please get back to me with your results. Thanks

Runs good for about an hour, then needs 15-30 minute rest period


When it's about to quit, quickly undo the gas cap. If it roars back to life, you have a vacuum problem, where the vents aren't letting air into the gas tank to replace the used fuel, so after a while, gravity isn't sufficient enough to pull gas from the tank until is sits and equalizes for a while.
