Probably a failed or disconnected fuel shut-off solenoid. It's located on the bottom of the float bowl. Check that there is battery voltage present when ignition is on. If so, solenoid has either failed, or jammed due to gum build-up.

My troy built riding mower won't run full throttle it only run at about half throttle


if it runs good at half throttle, it just wont throttle up it sounds like the throttle cable has slipped. you might try to adjust it to get full throttle back .but if when you turn it up to full throttle and it dies then you have a choke, carburetor, fuel line, fuel filter or fuel tank problem. hope this gives you an idea.

Its a lean fuel conditoin. Probably something in the carb. Also check flow from the tank and the intake mounting screws.

24 hp Briggs Stratton sears riding mower engine wont start unless you use start fluid cleaned filter have flow to engine


If the mower starts and continues to run after injecting, you may want to make sure the choke is working properly. If the choke plate is not closing all the way, it will make cold starts difficult.

This is a lawnboy mower about twenty years old and has run fine intil about a week ago. Now...after starting...It will surge up and down at full speed...then start to bog down unless throttle is placed...


drain all gas out of the tank and carb the new gas with 10% ethenal is ruining old gas engines after everything sits for a day install a plastic shut off valve in gas line. put high test gas with the seafoam then turn gas valve off after every use it will run good. then call your congressman and complain otherwise we will all be replacing any engine older than 4 years old

22 horse kawasaki riding lawn mower will not run at full throttle unless the choke is engaged


That is not a good situation. Too rich of a fuel adjustment can wash the bores out on that engine and prematurely wear it out! You will likely need to have the carburetor linkage and plate adjusted so that full throttle operates without engaging the choke. (If this is a single lever that you slide from slow, idle speed to fast, then on to choke)

Lawn mower stays running on jumper cables but once disconnected it shuts down when choke is engaged


if it is already running and you "engage" the choke, you will flood the engine with too much gas and it will sputter and die. the only time you engage the choke is to start the engine when it is cold. if the mower dies when you remove jumper cables, and you leave the choke alone, you need to have someone look at your charging system.

Try to start mower and turns over but wont start unless you pour gas in carb then it will start and run fine. 1648s scotts mower with a kohler motor.


Does it continue to run after you start it by pouring gas into the carburetor or does it die again?

If it continues to run, it sounds like your choke is not working. Probably disconnected -- check linkage.
