The carb needs to be taken off and cleaned. The ethanol in gasoline absorbs water and causes problems. Disassemble carb and clean with carb cleaner.

Exmark lazer HP 19 Kawasaki 50" deck new PTO and new relays blades engage for 30 minutes then shut off engine on. After cooling will engage for 10 minutes then shut off


Engine valves need adjusting.
symptoms: starts ok, runs until engine reaches max temp loses power then stops. can't restart when hot. once restarted runs for a while stops again.

There is very little clerance in these valves and temperature alters the lenth by a few thou and the valve don't close fully losing compression, once cold the valves shrink back enough to create enough compression to start again.

Why is the engine running rough after a few minutes and the spark plug gets carbon on it?


Could be your choke is not shutting off like it should and some mowers the choke is on when you put the throttle wide open. Cut the speed back just a little and see if that helps.

My quantum xts 50 after priming wont fire


does it start when you prime it or does it not start at all? if you prime it and it runs until the prime burns off then won't start again, try priming it again. If it starts and runs until the prime burns off again then it is a carburetor issue. It isn't supplying the engine with fuel to run after the prime is gone

Lawn mower will start when primed but will only run for few secon


It starts because of excess fuel from priming. It usually then gets it fuel from main jet in carb.

You need to find the main jet and run a fine piece of sturdy wire through it. That will restore fuel flow so your mower can continue running after the priming fuel is gone.

This is a good thing to learn. Main jets tend to clog a lot on mowers these days.

6 yr old mower starts, won't run


sounds like a plugged high speed jet in carb - you can attempt to prime again , push at least 7-8 times - once it fires continue to push primer to keep running - it may clear out the carb if this doesnt work the carb will need to be removed and cleaned
