14sb mower starts and runs 2-4 min, then quits

My 14sb mower has developed a problem that has me stumped. It starts easily and runs fine for 2 to 4 minutes and then stops. It doesn't want to start again for about 10 or 20 minutes. Then it starts just fine and runs for another 2-4 minutes. I have cleaned the fuel tank and filter and cleaned the carb by soaking for 48 hrs in carb cleaner and then spraying aerosol in all of the passages that I could spot. Any help is appreciated.

Thanks,
Joel

My 14SB John Deere mower will start but then quits before moving the throttle, changed oil, oil filter, spark plug, new oil, added fuel stabalizer to gax tank. Any ideas???


Hello. You have some winter buildup in your engine. Get a can of starter fluid and a helper. have the helper shoot small squirts of starter fluid into the air filter while you run the mower. In just a couple of minutes the starter fluid will clear your problem. Joe

Engine won't run unless the choke is on - Deere 14SB Push Mower


It's starving for fuel. When you push the throttle all the way forward it closes the choke. You took it apart but you probably didn;t get all the junk out of it. Easy fix is to put some SeaFoam into the tank and run it. This cleans all deposits and debris from the jets. I have used this stuff and put it in the tank and start the engine and sit back and let it run. After about 5 minutes the engine will smooth out and run fine.

coil may be breaking down or earthing out as vibration over time can wear out the insulation on the wire

Motor runs for 5-10 min. then starts missing and quits.


Check your spark first,if you do not have spark your problem is the coils-if you do have spark the problem probaly lies withone of your valves getting stuck after getting hot and soonas it cools down a little it closes and then you can restart it till it gets hot again.Hope this helps

Craftsman 19.5 riding mower starts runs quits no power


When you let it sit did you remove all the fuel or add a additive? If you did not then I would recommend that you remove all the fuel and add brand new fuel to your system. Gasoline only last for about 3 to 4 months before it will start to go bad and this sounds like your problem
