Question about Garden

Hi, I have a simplicity brodmoor mower, purchased new in 1994. Recently the mower will run for about 15 minutes and die. I let it rest for a half hr & it starts back up again. I eventually get the lawn cut but would like to know if you can give me any advice. Thanks, debbie

Not saying this is your problem, however i have found this to be a problem in some cases. Because of the time duration that the mower runs then quits, i'd almost have to say (believe this or not ) your gas cap vent may be plugged. As gas leaves the gas tank, air has to replace that space. If air can't get into the tank, then as gas leaves the tank, it creates a vaccume, and shortly, no gas flow. try replacing the gas cap or make a small hole thru the cap so air can get into the tank. I'll be wondering how this works out for you.

After running about 15 minutes the engine dies out and won't start? what about 1/2 hr and able to restart but will die after cutting 15-20 minutes


Is it possible that your engine is overheating? When that happens, the engine tolerances expand, internal resistance increases and often the engine will just shut down till it cools, shrinks back to normal and then will restart. Check for oil levels and lubrication.

If it is that you better take care of asap before the engine permanently "freezes."

Recheck spark when the unit cuts out. I am gonna guess you spent a lto of money chasing a bad coil! When a coil starts to go bad they become temperature sensitive. Time does the rest!

Simplicity riding mower with 16HP Kohler engine stalls after about 15 minutes. Acts like it isn't getting any fuel, but it will run again later.


I have seen this problem a few times and this may not be the solution however, check the fuel filter. It may have melted and partially closed off the fuel supply. The routing of the fuel hose will cause the inlet end to bend slightly if it gets too hot under the hood.

Just purchased a 94 Sunbird SE for my son (today) Started fine. Drove for 15 minutes. Shut it down and it sat for 1 hr. Started again after registration and insurance. Drove for 10 minutes. Stopped once...


Take it back to where you got it and make them refund your purchase price. If they refuse and you finianced it go to them, There a law called "The Lemon Law" that makes it unlawful to sell something like that. Sounds like you sure bought one. Don't do anything to it just get hold of the place where you bought it and tell them to come get their junk out of your yard! dhgill1949

Simplicity Broadmoor only runs for a minute or two and then quits


Check both the air and fuel filters. Either being clogged would give this situation. It could also be dirt in the fuel line. Disconnect at both ends and blow them out. If none of the above helps, then the problem is likely in the fuel pump or carburetor and will take some disassembly.

Engine shutoff on hot days after 45 minutes.


it sounds like the electronic ignition system(under the flywheel) is going bad,that would cause the mower to shut down when it's hot. if you take it back to the repair shop ask them to replace it and it'll be good as new.. Good Luck
don't for get to give me a thumbs up
