Hi,
Need more info...
When it dies, does it crank back up? if not, at this time, you could check for spark. If none, you might be on track with a fault in a switch.
But if you have spark and it doesn't crank,
check for condesation in the gas (carburator and fuel tank). If any, problem solved... drain and dry carb bowl and gas tank to insure all trace of water is out.
Hope this helps... Good luck!

I have a Cub Cadet Model 364 with a 18 H.P Briggs & Stratton motor. It runs fine for about 20 minutes. Than starts hesitating. Like the motor wants to stall out. Help!


Firstly, try to run the engine without cap on the fuel tank. If it stays running well, clean out the ventilation hole in the fuel cap ( or replace the fuel cap ).
Check for dirt in the fuel tank, fuel tank connections, hose, strainer, filter. Clean everything!

Check if you still have sparks when the engine stopped from itself.
Check if you still have compression when engine has stopped from itself ( valve settings too close )

Wh;y does my cub cadet 1554 tractor mower lose power when engaged?


  • Does deck turn freely? Check and be sure mowing deck is not jammed or bad bearing etc. If nothing is wrong with deck, then check fuel filter, air cleaner element, dirty fuel system, bad gas, water in fuel, restricted fuel flow. Lack of fuel will cause engine to have lack power.

Engine dies when when you engage mower or gear


First I would check that the air filter is not stopped up. Second I would clean the carb very well as I believe the high speed circuit in your carb is obstructed. The mower will idle on the low speed circuit but I think it is getting insufficient fuel when you load it. This is where the high speed circuit comes in to allow the additional fuel for higher demand operations like moving in gear and especially the blades.

I hope that this helps.

So have you actually checked spark to both plugs? If so then inspect valves to be sure valves are operating. Sounds like running on one cylinder. A quick check would be to unplug one spark plug at a time. You may find if you remove the dead plugh wire, there is no change. If you unplug the running cylinder it probably won't start. Sometimes the compression release mechanisms can come apart or come loose. Download your manual for you engine model at www.briggsandstratton.com

Hi,
There is a switch underneath the seat that will shut the engine down if the mower is engaged and you are not on the seat...that switch is bad and it thinks you are not on the seat so it shuts you down...
