Hi Pry

The spark comes from the Magneto. Follow the spark plug wire and you will find the magneto at the end of it

The first thing you should check though, is the safety kill switch. There is a pressure switch in the seat that kills the engine in the event the driver falls off.

You need to be sitting on the mower to start it.

If the switch is ok and you still get no fire, it's the magneto.

Best regards,
Mike

There should be 1 black wire that grounds the coil(s) for kill. Be sure this black wire is not grounded when switch is in on or start position. It will be connected to the coil(s) at the flywheel.

Hi, check that the choke is operating and make sure the plug is wet after cranking. If so replace the sparkplug as it may be breaking down under compression. Also make sure it has compression ad it may have a stuck valve. regards Phil

Riding mower with 26hp briggs and stratton motor runs about 20 to 30 minutes thens cuts out


It sounds electrical in nature check the solenoid for continuity, check your key switch it may be bad also, check the spark plug wires and the part they hook into. Look for melted wires and replace as needed.

Have the battery tested at an auto parts store to ensure there is enough power in it. Sounds like it's strong enough to turn the motor with no compression (spark plug removed) but too weak to turn the motor with compression. Also check for loose or corroded wires.
