Briggs & Stratton engine just dies

Does this machine die when overheated? It seems when I have to cut grass that is really's ok till I go up a hill and then it coughs and dies. After about 20 mins it will start.

  • 218 Answers name is Keith..and to answer your question..lawn mower engines are air cooled and are well engineered and they dont overheat..and i dont know of the steepness of the hill you are going up..but it sounds like the engine is either running out of fuel on the incline or the oil in your crankcase is running to the rear of the engine and the low quanity sensor is shutting it down..i hope this will help..if not please write me back

My briggs and stratton twin cylinder engine runs good until I try to mow with it. The engine dies down and will cut off unless I disengage the mower.

If you are cutting to much grass this can happen or if the throttle control is not in fast speed (rabbit). If it is in slow speed (turtle) it will tend to die down in tall grass or wet grass. Good Luck...

Engine seems to flood out when increasing speed and dies

If it starts lightly smoking black smoke at high RPM it is flooding or getting too much fuel. The float is leaking you may have not set the float height correctly when you put that carb back together. Or the needle and set could be bad.

It could be "starving" for gas, not getting enough gas. Check the plug, if it is white then the engine is running to lean and will overheat. If this is the problem, then the carbertor will have to be adjusted, and or cleaned, or replaced.
