May have a fuel filter or fuel line clogged. Check to see if it has a fuel pump, The diaphragm in the fuel pump may not be pump fuel any more.

you may have a safety switch that has went bad or came unhooked. unplug and test for continuity. also under the hood you will see a fuse, check to see if that has blown. if all that is good you may want to unhook the coil try to start it and see if it has fire. it is possible the coil has went bad. hope this gives you an idea where to start

ok a couple of things to try 1 try using starter fluid in carburetor 2 second spritz and crank does it fire or pop? if yes then there is spark, if not then pull spark plug and put new one and try again, if no then leave spark plug out of engine and lay on engine with wire connected and look for spark( do in shade to see better. if no spark then coil if bad. if it does fire on starter fluid, check gas filter and air cleaner it may be too lean or rich to fire properly.

Briggs & Stratton engine just dies


Hi..my name is Keith..and to answer your question..lawn mower engines are air cooled and are well engineered and they dont overheat..and i dont know of the steepness of the hill you are going up..but it sounds like the engine is either running out of fuel on the incline or the oil in your crankcase is running to the rear of the engine and the low quanity sensor is shutting it down..i hope this will help..if not please write me back
