Could be a couple things, try turning the blade by hand to see if it will turn fairly easy. If it doesn't check around the blade base to see if something is wedging around the shaft like weeds or a piece of wire or rope or something. If there's nothing there check the belt maybe the idler has a frozen bearing [if it's got one] or maybe the belt jumped off and is wedged in there around the shaft. good luck

Engine valves need adjusting.
symptoms: starts ok, runs until engine reaches max temp loses power then stops. can't restart when hot. once restarted runs for a while stops again.

There is very little clerance in these valves and temperature alters the lenth by a few thou and the valve don't close fully losing compression, once cold the valves shrink back enough to create enough compression to start again.

Hi, I have a westwood t1500 with B & S engine which starts fine also runs fine with cutter disengaged,when cutter engaged it sends out clouds of white smoke and idles to a halt. Any ideas Regards ...


Sounds like the cutter is not turning free causing the engine to drag down and stop, I do not think the B&S engine is the problem. I have rebuilt dozens of these engines and most of the problems with a Briggs engine was dirt in the gas or carburetor that needed needle valve cleaned . If the cutters turn free, check for a bad or out of adjustment safety kill switch that engages and stops the engine as the cutters are engaged.

when was the last time you took a look at the cutter blades,,or serviced the cutter deck? if the cutting blades are blunt or rounded off it will stall the engine stress the belts and the clutch,,,also if the mower has been standing un ran all winter it may have "rust" on the engine valves,,running the engine unloaded for a time may knock this off but under load the compreshion is pushed up into the inlet and pops back through the carb,,,try putting into the fule a little "two stroke oil" only 5cc a gall no more! this will lube the velves and carb,,,but sharpen them cutter blades up first,,,or its like trying to eat a half cooked stake with a blunt knife and no teeth? that reminds me? were have my teeth gone?

Engine stalls when blade is engaged


the best way to check is to run the engine with you on it then lift off the seat and see if the seat sensor is cutting off then put a bag with some weight in it and turn on the engine it should run ok if the sensor is working and lift the back box to see if the sensor works there.. the other cause could be a build up of grass in teh cutter area stopping the blades fron moving this can caus a stall if you get a hose and blast under the cutter guards and make shure the grass shute is clear for the grass to exit this may help to mine cuts out if there is a blockage here and the grass cant get out after it has been cut it builds up at the exit plates.. Hope this works AB

Starts but won't speed up enough to run


If this is a 2 cycle engine the problem could be that the exhaust is clogged. Most 2 cycle engines have a spark arrestor on the muffler which clogs. could also be the exhaust port from the engine. remove the muffler and check it out.

Stops running after 2 minuets


Honda engines have an oil sensor that sometimes fails. It will cause this. If the sensor fails it is like not having enough oil and will kill the engine for protection. Just something to look into. Hope this helps

Remove the cutting attachment, insert a screwdriver in to the shaft receptor and it should operate smooth with a slight bit of friction. if not then check the blade bolts and make sure the blades move freely. Lubricate the blades and the gearbox regularly. If the attachment end is good then turn the driveshaft by hand (with attachment still off shaft). If this too moves freely then go to the clutch.
