You probably have dirt in the carburetor. Or, you may have water in the fuel. As long as you have spark, then there is nothing else that it could be. Unless you have taken it apart already; have you done this?

Lawn mower will start when primed but will only run for few secon


It starts because of excess fuel from priming. It usually then gets it fuel from main jet in carb.

You need to find the main jet and run a fine piece of sturdy wire through it. That will restore fuel flow so your mower can continue running after the priming fuel is gone.

This is a good thing to learn. Main jets tend to clog a lot on mowers these days.

Brand new 550! push red pump button 3-4 times... pull handle..mower starts up then dies. Will not continue to run..


Sounds like wet fuel! The priming puts enough gas in to start it but the running circuit does not.

Check your gas can for a layer of water on the bottom of it. If it has a lot of water in it you should dispose of this fuel at a gas station that collects used oil and gas. Drain the mower and take that gas away too.

Put in fresh gas from a known clean and dry source.

Let me know what you find ok?

Good luck and be careful!

MTD Yardman push mower runs fine for awhile then cuts off.


Try buying a new plug first but if it continues then I would say that there is debris in the carb.
