Be sure the fuel is fresh....meaning, fresh from the gas station. IF that doesn't fix it, replace the carb.

We have a briggs and stratton mower that has been in storage for 5 years with very few hours on it, it will start but dies shortly after.


needs to have carb cleaned out. most likely the main jet in the carb is plugged. symptoms include only running on choke and dies when choke is turned to run. or if you only have a primer bulb, it will only run for only a few seconds every time it is primed. if you are qualified to work on the carb, dont forget to start with fresh gas and possibly new fuel line and filter.

Lawnmower has been in storage for 6 months. Has new good gas, and gas is flowing to carb. However, engine will not start without priming carb with gas, then runs until primed gas is exhausted. ...


this is from a post i just did for anothe engine but i think it applies to you also.

get a product called START. this stuff is amazing it has solved all my engine problems including a couple like yours. any wal mart should have it. add to your gas and the longer it runs the better it runs. i am telling you it is worth the 6 bucks. i had a 4wheeler that never ran right, always had to half choke it. even though i cleaned the carb twice. added this stuff and by the time that tank was gone it was running like new. if that doesnt take care of your problem then it needs to go to the shop Now your situation i know is dirt or varnish in the carb i have had this problem also. and start worked for me on that also. mix it in the gas and keep it running even if you have to keep priming it

I can start my 4.75 HP Briggs & Stratton Lawnmower but it dies after a few minutes. I replaced the armature but the same thing happens. I can keep it running if I press the prime bulb a couple of times...


Try replacing the float and needle. The float (floats) and pulls the needle up to let gas through to the carb. It will stay running as long as you press the prime bulb because this sends gas straight to the carb without going through the gas bowl. It's best to remove the carb and clean it then replace the float and needle

check your air filter. If it's clogged, the engine will spool up to keep from dying, run for about 15 seconds, then it will happen again. If that's it, just clean the air filter. Solved my problem
