the solenoid is sticking inside the housing

SOURCE: mower only runs two min and quits

Sounds like a blocked or dirty fuel inlet.

Remove the carb bowl and work the float up and down until gas flow improves. Be gentle! Just a little light pressure from beneath and the float should swing up about a quarter inch.

The short run is due to the carb bowl not refilling fast enough to keep up with full throttle demand.

Make sure when you put the carb bowl back on there arent any fuel leaks before trying to run the mower.

Good luck and be careful!

SOURCE: mowed an area of about 12 X 12 and it just cut

the kill switch cable may have stretched, you can check this by disconnectiing the kill switch wire. With this unhooked and it still has no spark, replace the coil

You either need a carburetor rebuild or you need a valve adjustment. Either of these things would cause this to happen.

Good Luck!

Mower shuts off as soon as you release parking brake and in park will shut off if you turn blade on

You most likely have a safety switch issue, try un-plugging the switch in question and holding the wire connectors together with a small vise grip and do a test to see if it will run. If it stays running, then replace the switch in question before using your machine.

I have trouble starting the tractor

First, make sure you are using fresh gas. Gas breaks down quickly with the ethanol they put in it now.

Next, you must apply the brake before you start the tractor, and be sitting in the seat.

Make sure it is neutral and make sure the blade is not engaged.

Apply the choke, then start the tractor, once the tractor starts running turn off the choke. let the engine run for a bit, then put it to full throttle.

If you get off the seat without the blades off, and the break on, the engine will shut off.
