Does the mower die right away (cuts out) or does it sputter to a halt. Sputtering out would indicate a fuel problem. If it just cuts out when hot, then more likely an ignition problem. Your coil may need replacing. Take a close look at the coil wire (spark plug wire) and its routing. Make sure it's not touching part of the engine where it's heating up and has caused a "leak" to ground it out when it gets hot. If all is well then check your spark when the engine is hot and cuts out. Make sure you have a very good blue spark and not a weak one (check it cold first and then compare!). Again, indicating a possible ignition coil problem. Hope this helps and best of luck to you.

My helper was mowing with my Honda push mower.. The handle started shaking.. a lot.. It will start up at first pull but is not cutting well. The blade is turning but the mower is vibrating so much it...


it sounds like the blade may have hit some thing hard .
You say the blade is turning is it turning level or is it sort of swaying as you may have ofset the drive pin.
Worst case.. new mower as it can cost a lot of money to repair drive
I know as i have done the same thing a few years ago

Turn off mower blades the electric clutch spins and the two green


There should be a metal "anchor" that bolts to the chassis or engine. It has a rod that sticks downward, fitting into a notch in the clutch to keep it from turning. It must be missing or broken, or maybe the clutch is the wrong model, and that's why the clutch itself spins and rips out the wires. Good luck! Please rate if you found this helpful, thanks!
