Why does my mower shut off after I turn the choke off?

After cleaning the carb on my 42in, 17.5 hp briggs and stratton mower, it will not stay running. It will start and run with the choke on but shuts off when I shut the choke off.

    I actually did not take the carb off. I took off the bowl and sprayed carb cleaner in through the bottom.

It sounds like you took the carb off the engine and did not replace the gasket or tore the gasket and it is sucking too much air. Also check to see if the carb and bracket ( if it has one ) are on straight.

3.5 hp Briggs & Stratton won't run unless I pour gas into carb


This sounds like a problem with the suction. If the air filter is clean then it will need new carb gaskets. There may also be an issue with the pressure being created by the engine.

Clean or change air filter. Clean, gap or change spark plug. Empty gas tank add fresh gas with Stabil. When spark plug is removed pull rope several times to blow out cylinder. Spray starter fluid in spark plug hole before replacing spark plug. Clean outside of carb so choke works freely. Spray starter fluid into carb breather hole with air filter removed and try to start. if running replace air filter and cover. If no start disassemble carb and clean. If no start replace carb.

After about 30 to 40 minutes of use (varies, the


I have a 7 year-old craftsman mower with a 22 HP Briggs engine that has the same issue. After about an hour, the mower acts as if it is starving for fuel and then stalls. Then after about 5 minutes of sitting, it will run for a little while longer.
If your engine is similar to mine, then its carb has a fuel shut off solenoid which shuts off fuel to the Main Jet when Voltage is removed to prevent backfiring when the key is shut off.
Unfortunately, this solenoid can also cause the carb to starve for fuel when not working properly. In my case, when I cleaned the solenoid and the solenoid's connections, the tractor had no problem after that.

Hope that helps,
Steve
