Mower starts and runs but has no power acts like its flooding it burns a lot more gas can barley pull it self


Sounds like maybe the choke is stuck closed. If you remove the air filter the choke is the first butterfly valve you can see. The throttle looks similar but is a inch or so deeper into the carb, and you can't see that unless the choke is open. Try removing the air filter and starting the mower. It might run just a little better without the air filter since it will get a bit more air, but if the choke is stuck it still won't run right. But you will be able to see if that's the problem right off. If it runs great without the air filter, and the choke is not stuck, then the problem is a clogged air filter and you need to replace it. Good luck, Al K

My lawn mower is surging and spark plug is black is this lack of air briggs& stratton . plus runs ok when running out of petrol /????


Are you running it with the choke on? Also if the air filter is dirty it will do that as well. Black plugs means it's getting too much gas and is not getting the proper air to burn properly. Some engines if you rev them up with the handle right as fast as it will go automatically the choke is on.

probably a dirty carb. or if this problem is occuring when the engine has been run and is hot and its the new style easy start engine with auto choke ( no primer or choke lever) then the auto choke unit coud be faulty

Starts but doesnt run


Is the choke on?
Is the fuel tank full?
It sounds like a fuel problem, if the tank is full and the choke is not on, then I would check for dirt in the carburator.

I have a 15hp tecumseh engine that will only run with the choke on.


You have a partially gummed up carburator. Get a bottle of carburator cleaner to add to your fuel. Follow those directions and you should be fine.

The alternate method may be to get a can of starter fluid. Spray the fluid into the air intake as the engine is running with the choke on. When the engine sounds better take it off of the choke status. Joe
