Maybe bearing bad and when hot seizes maybe when it stops you can stall engine and try turning the blade by hand if it turns forget the bearing and check possible pump worn or overheating

SOURCE: Craftsman 17.5 HP 42 in mower stops after approx 1/2 hour of use

Hello jon3208:

>>The Following is a Basic Instruction File I made for this. Any Input is Appreciated. I Usually Suggest you Check the Following in this Order for a Problem like yours. **CHANGE ANY SPRING STYLE HOSE CLAMPS TO THE SCREW STYLE HOSE CLAMPS*** 1- Check the Gas Tank Cap and Ensure it is Venting the Tank. A Vacuum Builds in the Tank and the Gas Flow Stops or Slows (15 to 45 Minutes and if the Small Grainular Sand is in the Tank it can Take Several Days of Constant Running to Bring All the Sand Particales to the Tank Outlet Port) to a Point it Shuts Off the Engine. 2- Operate the Equipment Until it Quits (15min to 1hr). Then Immediately Check for Fire from the Plug. If the Plug is Firing, then 3- Check the Carburetor Solenoid. If the Carburetor Shut Off Solenoid has Current, then Remove the Carburetor Solenoid and Go to the Hardware Store. Purchase a Bolt of the Same Diameter and Threads. It Needs to be 3/4" Long. Put this Bolt in Place of the Solenoid. If this Corrects the Engine Problem, then Replace the Solenoid. ***NOTE: THIS IS FOR CHECKING THE SOLENOID ONLY I NEVER SUGGEST YOU OPERATE THE ENGINE WITH THE SOLENOID OUT OF THE CARBURETOR EXCEPT FOR TESTING PURPOSES*** Sometimes the Plunger is Moving, Just Not Far Enough to Allow the Gas to Enter the Jets. 4- Depending on the Model Mower, it can Also be the Pickup Tube in the Gas Tank. If No Fire, then Remove the Shut Off Wire from the Coil and Check for Fire. If Still No Fire, then the Ign Module or Coil is Bad. **Even if the Coil is New of Fairly New, it can Still be Bad.** On JD Mowers; Remove the Igniter/Module and the Coil and have the Local JD Dealer Test them.
Please, Do Not Hesitate, If I Missed Something or you Hit a Snag or this Does Not Correct the Problem, I am Here if You Require More Assistance.
Hope this Helps. Let me Know What Happens, Please. May the All Mighty Bless You and Yours. Be Safe and Be Happy. Thanks.

Good Luck

Respectfully

SOURCE: my sears riding mower stops running when gas tank

Hi, W/D here.

Sounds like you're machine is pulling a partial vacuum on the tank when it is running, and starving itself for fuel. Check the fuel filler cap vent pinhole. If it is plugged, the mower will do just what you're saying.

Best regards, --W/D--

SOURCE: Mower runs for about 20 minutes cuts off. Acks

After trying to crank it, pull the spark plug out. You should see residue of gas or smell gas. If you don't it is a fuel problem. Check the spark plug and make sure it is good. Clean it with a wire brush. Gap the spark plug and reinstall. I normally put a new spark plug in. Sometimes the flywheel gets rusty. It needs the rust knocked off with a wire brush. You take off the cover off the engine. The flywheel is made of plastic and metal piece on sears. You brush the metal piece (magneto). ( You also have a safety switch on mowers. I don't know how to tell you to check them.)

SOURCE: mower runs good for fifteen minutes then the

Mine did this too. THe semi-transparent fuel filter will look like no gas is in it if you have the problem I had. The gas cap on the tank has a tiny breather hole to keep it from coming under a vacuum as gas runs out. Push thru it with a toothpick to clear the hole. That's all it was. But I did have some black debris clogging the filter and had same symptom.

Setting timer on window unit to turn on and off


Hi Jessica Yacopino - Generally speaking, Frigidaire air conditioners timer option typically have the same procedure. The unit must be in the ON position for the timer delay stop option. For delay start, the unit must be in the OFF position. First, press time button. Then to adjust timer setting, tap or hold the UP arrow or the DOWN arrow to change delay timer at .5 hour increments, up to 10 hours, then by 1 hour increments up to 24 hours. The control will count down the time remaining until start (8, 7.5, 7, etc.). The Delay Start mode automatically selects cooling with maximum Fan Speed. The temperature maintained will be the same as previously set. To change the set temperature, press "COOL" then Up or Down arrows until the desired temperature is indicated on the display. After 5 seconds, the control will automatically change the display back to the hours remaining until the unit will start/stop. PRESSING the unit On/Off button at any time will cancel the Delay Start/Stop function. The Delay Start/Stop Feature will work until the unit either starts or stops. Once that happens the above steps have to be repeated again.

Torro ride on wont start. Won't even kick over. Its like there has been a safety switched flipped as nothing is happening, when before I stopped for a moment it was working fine.


Insure you don't have deck engaged . There is a safety switch under the seat you can jumper it .If it is seat switch you will need to replace it.
