Make sure that you have oil and that the airflow is not blocked,,,take the cover and tank off and look underneath, the flywheel is designed to have fins that circulate the airflow, sounds like the piston has welded itself(from lack of oil or airflow) to the cylinder wall. good luck

It starts and runs but gets hot and quits


the only way for an air cooled motor to get hot is from the cooling fins on the head and cylinder to be blocked from straw and mud
remove the cowl on the motor over the fly wheel and clean it all out

Hi bilsdrums53...
Sounds like you have debris/trash in your carburetor or maybe water in the fuel tank.
Check and clean your fuel tank.
Clean your carburetor and that should solve your problem

Briggs & stratton 550 / surges, gas hog


check your air filter. If it's clogged, the engine will spool up to keep from dying, run for about 15 seconds, then it will happen again. If that's it, just clean the air filter. Solved my problem

Troy-Bilt Briggs & Stratton 550 restarting


Troy, Unless you are using old fuel (it breaks down after 1 week) it sounds like you have a faulty spark plug. Replace this first, drain any old fuel and replace with fresh fuel (premium unleaded). A faulty plug will work one minute but then fail like you have described.
