SOURCE: snow blower starts right up but dies once i engage the blades?

Hi,

it is possible the engine is starving for fuel, so essentially it is a carburetor problem with fuel mixture.
Check and see if your carburetor has mixture adjustment needles, there may be an adjustment possible to fix this problem.
Also, sometimes a tiny vent hole in the carb caseing gets clogged causing the engine to run rough or stall.
Does your engine seem to run better if you close the Choke ?

Hope this helps you.

SOURCE: Husquavarna GT2254 runs fine till I try to engage the blades,

Hello janec37415:

>>From your Description it Sounds like the Seat Safety Switch is Bad, has a Bad Connection or the Stator/Charging Coils are Not Charging Enough for the PTO to be Engaged.
>>When the Blade is Engaged, the Seat Switch is Showing No One is on the Seat so the Engine is Shut Off by the Safety System or
>>When the PTO is Engaged and the Stator/Charging Coils are Not Charging Correctly, the Carburetor Solenoid Does Not get enough Voltage to Stay Open and the Engine Quits.
>>If you Hit a Snag or this Does Not Correct the Problem, I am Here if You Require More Assistance. Hope this Helps. Let me Know What Happens, Please. May the All Mighty Bless You and Yours. Be Safe and Happy.
>>Thanks.


Respectfully
John

Is this on the grass, grass may be too long stopping blades from moving.

I have the same tractor. If you have the transmission in <reverse> this will happen every time. It's a safety feature. Be sure the tractor is in <neutral> or one of the 6 forward gears.

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.

Briggs 407777, type 0121-E4


The engine is not developing power and the presence of a load causes it to slow down and quit all together. Is there some sort of timing advance on that motor? In a car if the timing is not right that is exactly what happens when you put the car into gear and try to use it.

I would not mess with the valves till I check out the timing.

Husqvarna riding mower smokes when cranked and dies when engaging blades


If it dies when engaging the blades it's not getting enough juice to do so. Test the battery and make sure you are getting at least 12 volts. If not, charge it. If so, the solonid is going bad.

My LGT 2554 Husgvarna mower engine tends to die when the mower blades are engaged. When the engine runs with the blades off at low idle it is ok. When you advance the throttle fast to full it loses power...


A common problem on the 21 & 23HP models is bent valve push rods on one cylinder. With this the engine runs and seems fine, albeit a bit quieter, until you put a load on it like engaging the blades which causes it to nearly die. So you may want to eliminate this as a possibility by running the engine with one plug wire removed and then the other. If it runs with one wire on alone, but not with the other wire on alone, then you have a nonworking cylinder even though it is receiving spark. Just a thought.

White smoke coming out of mower


It sounds as though you are losing power (electrical power); see if charging the battery fully allows it to run longer or if charging the battery helps.

if you mean that when you let off the clutch pedal and/or engage the blades, the engine dies, lift the seat and make sure the connector is firmly plugged into the switch attached to the seat.
