Make sure to use something insulated if you are going to short the spark plug to the engine. I got the shock of my life doing that on a lawn dethatcher.

It won't shut down because the gizmo that shorts the spark plug is not working. If possible take an insulated screw driver and either pull the spark plug wire off the plug or try to touch the end of the plug and the engine at the same time. If the switch is in the gas lever there may be an adjustment on or in it that shorts the plug out.

Gas in oil on a 23 horse brigs

If you are speaking a lot of have a sticking float in the carb the bottom of the bowl there is a electrical positive shut off is designed to stop gas from flowing out to the ground when the float sticks..unfortunately it then allows gas to go back through the intake and eventually into the cylinder and engine can fix but will happen again so my suggestion for a never fail again is to MAKE SURE THE FUEL SHUT OFF IS SHUT OFF every I mean every time the engine is stopped..This will assure gas will not flow out of the tank when not running..if your mower does not have one..put one in the line between the tank and carb. Where you can get at it more thing I suggest when shutting the mower down for a period of time let it run for a while AFTER CLOSING THE SHUTOFF VALVE EVEN LET IT RUN OUT OF GAS this will make sure gas left in the carb will be used up and none will find its way to the block..make sure you chage the oil,filter and clean the plugs and cylinders to eliminate any existing gas in the oil may burn white smoke for a little while from being in the muffler..but should clear up...REMEMBER SHUT GAS OFF EVERY TIME THE EGINE IS NOT RUNNING..and no more gas in oil...Good luck..

Mcculloch MB3202 32cc gas blower it will run for 10 to 20 mins or so then shuts off it seems that it's getting to warm then shuts off it will start back up but then shuts off again. Why is this doing that?

You could be running the oil gas mixture with not enough oil. The high speed jet could be running the engine lean. The cooling air thru the engine could be blocked by debris/leafs.

I have a Vaillant Thermocompact VU182 E boiler. Functioning ok except that when room stat. or cylinder stat.shuts of gas the demand light continues to glow and pump keeps on running. Main switchboard has...

Pump should keep running long after gas shuts off, because of residual heat. It is most efficient to shut gas off as quickly as possible, and run off retained heat.

John deere lt155 lawn tractor shuts off when it gets hot while mowing, could this be electrical?

I had a similar problem lasy year.
Try this:
As soon as the machine seems to be stalling, loosen the gas cap.
If the engine continues to run, clean the gas cap vent hole(s).

Can't get gas into my 2002 Hyundai Accent.

The reason the gas station pump shuts off is when the fuel reaches the tip of the gas nozzle, so when you are filling your car and the gas nozzle (gas stations pipe) keeps shutting off it means that the pipe that runs to the gas tank is not open completely, what happens is when you pump the gas in the car the supply pipe from the gas tank opening to the tank fills up quickly and this causes the gas station pipe nozzle to shut off, have some body take down the gas tank and have a look at the gas tank opening and also gas supply pipe that runs from the gas filler opening ( on the car body) to the gas tank. Have a look at it and please don't forget to rate the answer if it was helpful, thanks!

Mower runs for 10-15 mins. then shuts off.

Check your gas cap. There must be a vent for the gas to flow joedog

Gas dryer

If when you run it you smell gas stop running it!
You should shut the gas valve off immediately!
If the gas heater isn't working when your running it it's probably the Valve the activates the gas (Selenoid) or the Ingnitor that lights it!
