Question about Garden
Two issues, possibly related.
Less than 100 hours on motor
1. Have to keep charging battery. Had it checked at a local auto parts store, checked OK. Suspect bad charging system. I have not put a meter to it ...yet.
2. Unit runs apprx. 20-30 minutes just fine then suddenly acts as if it's starving for fuel and stalls. Usually starts right back up with full choke, but stalls once transmission is engaged. Battery usually too weak to restart more than twice (30 minutes after recieving a full charge). Replaced fuel filter, inspected gas cap, appears OK. Suspect I may have to replace the spark plug and clean the carb. AND address the charging system
Can these 2 issues be related or am I not even in the ball park? Your opinions welcomed. Thanks!
First thing to do is check and repair charging system. They are/could be related problems in that there is an electric fuel shut off solenoid on the carburetor and if the battery is going dead, it could be cutting off the fuel flow. I wouldn't worry about the spark plug or cleaning the carburetor just yet.
Put a meter on the battery terminals, run the engine at full speed and check the voltage, If you are not getting around 13,5 volts going back to the battery, repair/replace the charging system. If it is less than 2 years old, it should still be under warranty so you might want to check with your dealer. I am guessing that it is a B&S 23 HP and replacing the alternator can be expensive and time consuming
