Lawn mower motor just stalls for no reason

I can start it up cold and it purrs like a kitter. i can mow for awhile and it just starts spitting, sputtering and if i can get the mower blades stopped in time it will sometimes recover and sometimes it just stalls and it takes a good 1/2 to start again??? it may do this 10 times each time i use it. i mow about 1 acre with it. MTD Yard Machine 18hp Briggs & Stratton engine. Can anyone help?

    I have the same problem. Just emptied the gas tank and bought brand new gas, put it in and same problem. I can get it started and then it stalls immediately. I checked the air filter, too.

Your mower doesn't have enough power to handle very thick grass at high speed. You need to go slower across the lawn. That's easy to do if this is a push mower (just don't walk so fast) or if it's a self-propelled model with a speed control. But if it's a single-speed model you'll have to mow the lawn in fits and starts: squeeze the lever to move it forward; release it when you hear it bogging down; wait for the motor to reach full speed; squeeze the lever to move it forward again; repeat. Also, is the grass very high? If so, try setting the cutting height higher on the first pass, then lower it for a second pass. Finally, make sure the blade is sharp.

Why does my toro model 74301 keeps dieing


There are many reason a lawn mower dies in gear. Buildup of grass on the underside of the deck, mowing in too deep or thick lawn causing too much load on the blade, or the air filter needs cleaning.

Neighbor mowed the extension cord and mower won't start


Check the cord has been properly replaced. Check circuit with a meter (NOT connected to mains) The live pin on plug should connect to live pin on motor switch etc. (need to take off cover on switch unit)
Cutting through the cord should not have damaged the mower.

Mower starts but if it stops then it will not start for the rest of the day????


Mowing the lawn is a necessary chore throughout the growing season. It prevents your landscape from looking unkempt and keeps your home looking nice and neat. How well your lawnmower works can make a huge difference in how you perceive this task. If the mower runs well and does what it is supposed to, then the job might not seem too onerous, but if your mower stops every time it gets hot, then it can turn a job that should only take a little while into an all-day affair. There are a few reasons why your lawnmower might stall after warming up

it sounds like you may have a vapor lock on your fuel tank   there should be a diaphragm on the inside of the fuel cap  that lets air in but not out   it may have an air hole clogged  take the cap apart if you can and clean it real good and put it back together   if that is not it  then the float in your tank may be stuck   or a fuel line filter may be clogged

Engins starts and runs when mowing will backfire and stall.


I am not sure what time of lawn mower this is, but if the blade is directly tied to the motor, usually the belt will just slip if not, but if this is directly connected to motor, it might have jumped timing. If this is not the case, inspect under the mower deck, and determine if there is something jamming the blades against the deck or if their is something bound around the blade, this can cause more strain on the motor, which could result in the symptoms your experiencing.
