Question about Briggs & Stratton Garden
2 problems are common with this machine.One is the earlier machines had bad placement of the fuel line at the tank causing it to get pinched off and restrict fuel flow.It may get pinched at the very top of tank where line starts or between very rear of tank and frame.2nd problem is with the decompression setting of the valves causing engine to have too much compression at start up.Set your valves when piston is a 1/4 inch past top-dead-center.Set your intakes at .004.

Those motors are funny. Oil level and oil delivery are essential. They have saftey shut off sensors if there is any problem with oil level. There aren't many hours on the motor for that to be an issue but check oil level, check it's color. If it's anyting but nice gold color (considering the low hours), you may have found your problem. Change filter, and flush (don't just drain and replace).
