My Yard Man push gas-powered lawn mower dies out

My Yard Man push gas-powered lawn mower suddenly dies. I can start it, it runs for 5-10 seconds, then slowly dies out. I have re-filled the gas tank. Any suggestions?

Check the fuel lines for cracks/breaks. If they are o.k., then:

You willneed to disassemble the carburetor and spray with carb.cleaner. Makesure the small screen is free of debris.

Use a Den Tek Brush, (http://www.drugstore.com/products/prod.asp?pid=165357&catid=1152),to clean the small portals in carb. These portals can become blocked. Reassemble and start.

If the carb. parts are more than 4 years old, you may have to replace them.

If you need further assistance, just let me know.

Why does yardworks 173cc bs engine will start, run, for 2-3 seconds then stop


Bad gas. Drain gas and refill with fresh gas with Stabil. Old oil. Drain oil fill with fresh 30w oil, 16-18oz. Clean air filter and spark plug.. Relpace air filter if dirty. Saving $$$ on this simple tune up is not intelligent.

MTD Chipper 242-641-000 will crank and run for a short period of time, then cut off. I can spray engine start and it will run for a few seconds.


sounds like the carburetor needs cleaning OR your gas tank Vent is clogged. Try the easy thing first. loosen the gas cap and see if the mower will keep on running.

Lawn mower does not run.


Needs a new diaphragm. Its between the carb. and gas tank. It collapsed and doesn't allow enough gas to carb. to keep motor running.

Lawn mower keeps dying


Remove gas cap. If mower now runs without stalling, your problem is the vent in the gas cap is blocked. Replace the cap. Common problem!

The mower starts, buts runs sluggishly, and dies


Most common is a dirty air filter, followed by a plugged vent hole in the filler cap on the gas tank. Next would be fuel issues either in the supply line or in the carburetor.
Hope this helps, --W/D--
