Honda riding mower

I have a HONDA 3011 HSA riding mower. It cranks and runs fine for 30 minutes. Then it cuts off. AFTER WAITING FOR 10 M=minutes.I restart it and it operates for another 30 minutes. It also seem to be running irradically when just idling. Seems to be surging then backing off and not idling consistently. Any idea of the problem?

Mine did this too. THe semi-transparent fuel filter will look like no gas is in it if you have the problem I had. The gas cap on the tank has a tiny breather hole to keep it from coming under a vacuum as gas runs out. Push thru it with a toothpick to clear the hole. That's all it was. But I did have some black debris clogging the filter and had same symptom.

SOURCE: Crafstman riding mower cutting off now won't start at all

The two most likely suspects for the symptom you describe are:
a) Ignition coil failure under high heat.
OR
b) Decompression failure due to normal wear.

For a positive diagnosis try the following:

For scenario a)
Run the engine until it shuts itself down. As quickly as possible, check for spark using a spark tester (availabe at local auto parts store). If no spark when hot, allow to cool down and test again. If good spark when cold and no spark when hot, change the ignition coil.
Proper part number (assuming your machine is still all original) Briggs & Stratton part #492341.

For scenario b)
Run the engine until it shuts itself down. Try to restart but pay close attention to the speed of the spinning starter. Next, remove the spark plug and spin the engine over (WITH SPARK PLUG WIRE WELL OUT OF THE WAY!!) If the engine spins super fast and free you can discount the theory of a bad battery and you will need to adjust the valve lash.

Determine which is the case and reply to this post. I will gladly give a detailed explanation of the valve lash adjustment procedure in another post.

Hope this helps!

SOURCE: Engine runs fine til hot.

I think one of the intake valves, or a valve pushrod, is bent or warped. When the engine heats up, the metal expands and the valve starts sticking open. That would cause compression to be lost in one cylinder, reducing available power so things drag when you engage the blades. This would also causes air/fuel to be blown back through the intake. I think you'll need to take it to a small engine mechanic. Good luck! Please rate my solution if helpful, thanks.

My riding mower stops moving forward after 30 minutes of cutting it starts right up the blades engage properly and cuts great it will just stop moving


Check under the seat under the battery box there you should find the drive pulleys for the rear end the belt could be worn out and turned inside out causing it to slip or stop pulling once it heats up mine was installed inside out from Lowes when I purchased the mower causing me to replace the belt hope this helps

Husqvarna riding lawn mower yth 2448 cuts off as if running out of gas after 10 - 30 minutes


Mine would run for about 15 minutes and die. I pulled the carb off and thoroughly cleaned it. Inside the float bowl there is a plastic device held on by two phillips headed screws. Under this device are two tiny tubes with small holes in the side of them. Make sure these are clean. I used carb cleaner in a spray can and a tip cleaner. Make sure to wear eye protection if you use spray cleaner. I reinstalled the carb and, so far, it is working fine.

I have a Husqvarna 48 riding gas mower. After 20-30 minutes cutting gas it will start to act like it is running out of gas and then stop. You can wait 10-15 minutes crank again and run about the same time...


Hi, when it plays up try loosening the fuel cap. It is vented and may be blocked. Also the fuel cutoff solenoid in the bottom of the carby is renouned for shutting off sporadically. You can test this theory by removing the small sealing rubber from the tip off the solenoid and replace the solenoid if it fixes the problem. Hope this helps, regards Phil.

Engine cuts out


I had a similar problem with my Honda XR. Turned out to be the Ignition Control module. The unit is probably sealed and unable to inspect. I figured it out by hitting it while the motor was running and it would cut out.
