Check and clean your gas tank. If still a problem there might be dirt in the carb.

I don;t know what engine is on your mower but if it has the self contained electronic ignition coil I have seen happen on several engines. It would run good for several min. then the spark just stops . And it will not spark again until it sets and cools . Just make sure it is the ignition that is not working.

Briggs stratton,16 H>P> runs smooth 'til mower is engaged.


Is the choke staying on perhaps? check spark and plug check airflow, get compression test maybe the oil/compression rings giving way... sounds like its getting hot and increasing fuel flow for some reason??? perhaps clean carb with some cleaner while running (remove air cleaner) spray directly into carby while running run at full throttle as you spray it will try and die ... relax on the spraying and see how it goes.. check air cleaner for blockages as the same time :) hope you get it working!

Engine shutoff on hot days after 45 minutes.


it sounds like the electronic ignition system(under the flywheel) is going bad,that would cause the mower to shut down when it's hot. if you take it back to the repair shop ask them to replace it and it'll be good as new.. Good Luck

Lawn mowewr wont restart


Check the gas cap. Loosen it a bit and try again. There is a vent built into it the hole on top plugs up ans stops the fuel flow.

Gas in the oil in my craftsman 17.5 riding mower


You have a bad antibackfire valve. It is located on carburator below the fuel bowl. You can replace it, or as I advise others, install an inline shutoff valve. Turn the fuel valve on to start it, then turn it off when you shut the engine down.
