You have a fuel delivery problem. Main reasons for this is a dirty or plugged up carburator. If you know what you are doing, clean the carburator. If you let gas set in it for more than a month or so without starting it up, the good ole ethonal in the fuel has gummed up inside the carb. Once you get the carb clean (jets, ports, etc) and it still doesn't run replace the fuel pump. Cheap as heck and easy to install. Both items can be done in less than an hour and cost you about 25 bucks.

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.

You probably have dirt in the carburetor. Or, you may have water in the fuel. As long as you have spark, then there is nothing else that it could be. Unless you have taken it apart already; have you done this?

You probably still have old fuel and water in the carb itself.

take off the air filter and look for the bowl screw or clip *(depending on model)

You can drain the bowl and let some clean fuel run through the gas line as well.

If the new fuel was last years you might want to check the gas can for water as well.

I work at a mower shop and at this time of year we do a lot of these kinds of repairs.

Fuel today just isnt kind to equipment that sits around for any length of time.

Maybe the engine is running with the fuel from the primer bulb (about few seconds), the carburator is not working and need to be removed checked and cleaned, the most common fail is a jet clogged.

Lawn Mower Doesn't Stay Running


Try this, while the motor is running rev it up as high as it will go if possible with air cleaner off then cover the carb hole with your hand, this will stall the mower be patient and do this over and over 5 times this should pull out any debree blocking the gas flow if this doesn't rectify the problem remove the float bowl if equiped and clean the bowls chamber replace , if it is the type of carb without float bowl remove the tank and carb disassemble clean reassemble and start/run.

Mower will not stay running


Sounds like a lack of fuel. If it has a briggs motor replace fuel pump diaphram in carb.
