Question about Mtd 22" Yard Machine Push Mower
I have a MTD 22" push mower that starts normal and runs great for about 30 seconds, then gradually the RPM drops off until it dies. This takes another 30-45 seconds. if i wait 2 minutes I can start it again and it does the same thing. [The yard takes forever to mow this way!] So here is what i have done. First i replaced the fuel pump (a rubber diagram and gasket that go between the gas tank and carb) the same problem. so than i ordered a new carb and installed it. it came with another fuel pump and gasket which i also installed. Same problem. The gas tank is clean and free of debris, that vent on the gas cap is clean and freely flows air. The air filter is clean and the mower does the same with it installed or not.
Any other ideas????!!!!
Briggs and Stratton
I have the same problem as NOZUALM with the same model B&S, type 2286. Hope a carb rebuild kit will solve problem. This is a "self-governing" engine; no carb adjustment nor accellerator lever. firstname.lastname@example.org

My 5hp B-S is doing the same thing and found a post that seems to be the best answer. Replace the float. It runs out of gas if the float is not working properly.
Another cause may be the diaphram, maybe.
Mine is 12 yrs old so I plan on getting the whole carb rebuild kit
while I have it apart
