Maybe faulty saftey switch like the on on the seat that some mowers have so they shut off when the rider gets off the machine when the blade is engaged.

After starting my lawn mower, it runs for a short time, vibrating and then stalls (stops).

Hi Abraham:
The vibrating could be coming from the blade.
- the centre bolt to make sure that it is securely attached,
- that the underside of the mower deck is not obstructed with grass
- that the blade is not bent.

If it will not start at all now you may have a sheared key on the flywheel.

Motor turns when spark plug is out, starter works, gas good, but has plenty of spark, when plug is added it stalls. Why?

If by 'stalls' you mean it wont turn over with the spark plug in, it is common in B&S engines for the valves to go out of adjustment. When this happens it can make it very hard for the engine to turn over and can make it hard for it to crank without assistance. A valve adjustment may fix this. it may also be a weak battery that isn't strong enough, or a bad solenoid that isn't letting enough juice through, or weak connections/bad battery wires.

My lawnmower won't start

My first action would be to check for fire. Pull the spark plug wire and either snap an extra plug onto the wire, or pull the mower's plug and snap into the wire. Pull or try the key start, to see if the plug is firing.
If it's not firing, you'll have to look at other possibilities... eg kill switch or coil issues.
I hope this helps... Good luck!

I have a cub cadet push mower with a 173cc ohv engine. i was cutting grass the other day and fire came out of the muffler and now it acts like its not firing maybe like it jumed time but not sure. thanks...

most likely a sheared flywheel key, pull the cover off the flywheel and remove the nut that holds the flywheel on. The key slot in the flywheel should line up with the key in the crankshaft if not pull the flywheel and install a new key, or take it to a small engine repair and they will do it for you. If the key is good, reassemble the flywheel nut etc and check for spark at the spark plug and see if the spark plug is wet with gas if you have spark and gas and the flywheel key not sheared and it still won't run, you may have an internal problem

It just stopped while mowing and will not start again, neither by pulling starter line nor turning electric starter key. Oil and gas are plenty.

many reasons why this could happen one being is this a 2 part is there oil in it spark plug filter clogged .... take it a part first get a new spark plug
