More likely the fuel filter either air locked if a bowl or dirty and neds to be replaced for sitting around unused. Itf that doesn't work. remove , dissemble and clean the carburator.

On my Craftsman Riding Lawn Mower the engine stalls after say about 10 minutes - I leave it for say 5 or 10 mins and I can start it again. I changed the sparkplug and it's not bad gas as my other mower...


The problem is more than likely the coil. The coil is nothing more than a coil of copper wire. When the coil gets hot the wire expands causing the coil to open or lose connection. When it loses connection then the spark plug quits firing.
PLEASE RATE! Click on the 4 thumbs ups!
Thanks! Have a GREAT DAY!

My 17.5 hp 22in Huskee Lawn tractor is stalling out after 5 to 10 min.


Check simple things first - as soon as engine dies, remove gas cap and attempt to restart. If successful, the vent is blocked, causing a vacuum to form in the tank. Effect will be more pronounced when tank is full.

Replace the spark-plug, check the quality of the fuel(gas that is mixed or was stored more then three months is stale and wont fire correctly) make sure the fuel and air filter not clogged. If there is no change then your problem may be more technical, a nest may be restricting the govenor or you missed something with the carb and there still is debre causing it to stall.
