Question about Garden
Charge the battery under a slow 2 amp battery charger and let it sit for an hour to cool down. Using an ohm meter set on dc volts, test the battery voltage. The battery should be at least 12.55 or 12.66 fully charged. Next, take it to your local parts store and have it load tested. If you don't have a ohm meter, load tester or a charger, your local parts store can do all of these for you. If the battery past all of these test, install it back into the mower. Now you will have to have a ohm meter to do this test. Start the mower and test the battery with the red probe on the positive post and the black probe on the negative post and see what it reads. If the mower dies before you get to do this test than you will need to check your cables to be sure they are tight. If it stays running, throttle it all the way up and the meter should be reading around or close to 14 volts dc. If its not, you are having charging problems from ether the stator or voltage regulator. If you get this far and still need help. Email me @ firstname.lastname@example.org and i will tell you how to check it further. Thanks; George

Your carbeurator is crudded up. Get a can of aerosol carbeurator cleaner at any auto parts store. Remove the air filter and spray two squirts of cleaner into the air intake. Start the engine and keep it running by squirting more carb. cleaner into the air intake. WIth a little patience you will clean your carb. and solve your problem.

most likely your main jet in the carb is clogged, water in fuel, or a plugged fuel line, filter, or plugged in the tank where the fuel line connects. it is common to have a plug where the fuel line exits the fuel tank if there is a 90 degree turn in the fitting, debris may build up in the 90 degree area. check by replacing old fuel with new, then pull fuel line from carb and fuel should flow freely, look for a blocked fuel line if it does not flow. it it does flow, pinch off fuel line then remove the float bowl to drain remaining gas and give acess to the main jet. the main jet is located in the side or bottom of the lowest protruding area into the float bowl. run a thin wire like a guitar string thru the small jet hole to unplug, then squirt a little wd-40 thru jet hole to visually check flow. next, unpinch fuel line and fuel should flow from carb into float bowl area. then check to make sure the fuel stops flowing when the float is gently lifted to the top of its travel. if problem in this area, remove float pin, float, and needle valve and check for blockage in the needle valve seat. clean out with wd-40 and reassemble, add fresh gas and give it a try!
