Try removing the air cleaner and run the mower rpm up high then close of the air intake hole with your hand it will stall start back up repaeat this will usually **** out any blockage in the carb. If this doesn't work remove the float bowl and empty the contents, clean, replace. If this mower doesn't have a float bowl (carb and float intergrated type) remove the gas take along with the carb and disassemble the carb from the gas tank and clean out the small chamber in tank and spray all parts with carb cleaner then blow out with compressed air reassemble and start.

Mower stops running after I've been mowing for about 30 minutes changed the spark plug, fuel filter.was mowing then it just started acting like it was running out of gas until eventually stops.

Take the fuel bowl off and clean then clean the fuel jet. a partial plugged jet will do this. could also be the float in the carb is sticking shut so could need cleaning as well. Would do good to run fuel cleaner through a tank of gas to clean things up. This is just an idea but worked for me.

What's the hurry

What's this marketing ploy now days about cutting your lawn mowing time in half. I can understand that if u have a bunch of lawns to mow. Beings i only have one, I'm really not a big hurry. Take a look at your yard, do some thinking, and don't over spend. I only want to have to sharpen 2 blades not 3 or 4, and the less drive belts the better. U get your exercise with a walk behind, and get the grass cut too. Last time I was mower shopping, one salesman tried to sell me a 6,900.00 lawn mower. He said it would cut my mowing time in half. I said I'm not buying a mowing that's worth more than my pickup, and for 6,900.00 I could pay someone to mow my yard, and cut my mowing time down to zero.

What do i do i put gas in oil tank self propelled snapper?

If you did not try to mow the lawn, but shet the motor off before there was a loud KA BOOM.
If not, it is time to consider a new motor.

Otherwise just drain the crankcase like you would to change the oil.
If you have a friend that could help tilt the mower so almost all the gas is drained.
Now, put oil in the motor, 40 wt because there will still be a little gas left in the motor and when you mix gas and oil the gas is absorbed by the oil and the oil will thin out.
DO NOT! start it up and rev up the motor. You want to let any remaining gas to be taken up by the oil. Run around your lawn a few times at a moderate speed WITHOUT the blades engaged.
After this you can mow the lawn, at a moderate throttle setting, then drain the oil and fill it with the oil your owner's manual says to use.

Or just put around your yard for 30 - 40 minutes, then change the oil.

The above will only apply if you didn't mow until you had flames coming out of the exhaust and banging, knock ing noises were coming from the motor.

How to clean carburetor on briggs 724cc engine

The best way without removing first get some carb cleaner spray and gas additive for carbs..start off with adding the gas additive and run the engine a half hr or do maybe mow the yard..then spray the entire outside of the carb and linkage to remove all the oil and gook buildup..then remove the air cleaner and start the engine and run about one third to half throttle then spray straight into the throttle body..if it Boggs, slow the spay flow raise the speed and continue unti the can is not get in a hurry let the engine run so it allows the ckeaner to work..The other is to remove the carb dis assemble and clean or replace parts using a rebuild lit...your choice..good luck..

Mowing a dry dusty yard- mower running very slowly- some dark smoke also- air filter clogged? thanks

Sounds like you have restricted the air from going into your carburator to the point the mower is just running. Change the filter and if is that dusty you to may want to put on a mask. Be careful. GOOD LUCK.

Sputtering Mower

It might not be disengaging the mower deck all the way off. I had this problem on an older model.
