SOURCE: My countax C300H starts OK but when I engage the

Just got one of these mowers myself - accidentally got a large stone caught in the blades which caused the same problem. It looked to me that there's a sensor on the flywheel that cuts the motor if the blades aren't rotating freely. You might find either that the sensor is broken (check it by pulling off the connectors and connecting them together) or that the blades aren't rotating for some reason.

Hi, I have a westwood t1500 with B & S engine which starts fine also runs fine with cutter disengaged,when cutter engaged it sends out clouds of white smoke and idles to a halt. Any ideas Regards ...


Sounds like the cutter is not turning free causing the engine to drag down and stop, I do not think the B&S engine is the problem. I have rebuilt dozens of these engines and most of the problems with a Briggs engine was dirt in the gas or carburetor that needed needle valve cleaned . If the cutters turn free, check for a bad or out of adjustment safety kill switch that engages and stops the engine as the cutters are engaged.
