Take the engine cover off and check to see if there is dried grass,leaves,etc packed inbetween the cooling fins on the engine. Some animal may have decided to make a home there.

John Deere sabre runs for a while then sputters to a halt. Won't restart until it cools down


check coil , ignition control module
This is an indication of component over heating and breaking down.
splutters as the circuit becomes unstable and eventual failure and refusal to start until cool

Air conditioner cools for 30 minutes then stops cooling after 20 minutes starts cooling again what is likely problem


The compressor motor is over heating and thermal protection shuts it down , when it cools down it restarts. Restricted air flow over the cooling coils could be the cause. Check filter,Sometimes furniture or other things block the return air vent.

Why does my hedge trimmer die after a few minutes operation


This sounds like worn main bearings beginning to seize. Worn bearings generate more heat which causes the metal bearings and their races to 'swell," thus getting tighter and generating more heat until the drag of the bearing friction is greater than the power of the motor. Eventually you can't restart it until the engine has fully cooled down.

It dies after about thirty minutes, then it won't start until it cools back down


How old are the spark plugs, cap and rotor?? If over 2 years i would replace them. Also you may want to test and replace the ignition module. Sounds like it breaks down due to heat when the engine is warm and needs to cool down before starting again.

I have such problem on audi s4 b5 2.7bt . when i switching off ignition and turn it on after several minutes, the water temperature is about 110 degree, and after this when i drive everything goes ok....


What you describe is quite normal. While the engine is running and the coolant is circulating the thermostat maintains the engine within its operating temperature range. When the engine is switched off there is still considerable heat within the engine and the coolant will continue to absorb this heat. With no coolant circulation, the coolant inside the engine will register a temperature rise to the extent your gauge measures. This temperature rise may persist for up to 15 minutes until the natural thermo-syphon of the cooling system starts to dissipate this heat build up and the engine starts to cool down. Because the cooling system is pressurised, the coolant is prevented from boiling off at this temperature above boiling point. Once the engine is restarted the coolant flow is re-established taking this excess heat from the engine and the system temperature returns to normal.

MY 92 CUTLASS AFTER 20 MINUTES STARTS SHAKING VIGOROUSLY THEN DIES AND WONT RESTART UNTIL IT COOLS DOWN 20 OR MORE MINUTES THEN STARTS RIGHT BACK UP


if a temp. light does not come on and the engine is not over heating I would look into the ignition components such as ignition module inside the distributor, sometimes when these components heat up they can cause this problem you described

Kenmor dryer Series 80 110 668 14690


based from your story, you are tiggering a thermal overheat protection device. as the device heats up, it would trip off the dryer, and comes back on again after a few minutes but as the heat increases, the device is being triggered faster until the device would no longer trips back because the dyer is so hot that it would take about 10 mins to cool down. i think this is just a secondary problem, your primary problem could be lack of air passing through the heating element. please check the stroller blade for dirt of flint and debri, check also the outlet duct, it could be clogged with flint also. i hope i was able to solve your problem.
