I have a John Deere push lawn mower and it will start but it shuts right off. Any ideas on what might be wrong with it?

    There is most likely debris in the float bowl and orifice jet. If you can find and pass along and engine model number I can pass you the "how to" info for the remedy. John Deere uses several different engines and each one of them has a different carb cleaning procedure. Kelly

It is quite possible that varnish and/or debris have clogged the main jet. Common problem The main jet is the brass bolt that holds the bowl on. Remove the bowl, clean it and inspect the bow carefully for 2 pin-size holes on the smooth part of the nut (some call it a bowl-nut etc.) Gas will leak out carb onto mower deck unless tank is drained first without the bowl on and the float hanging free (if your needle valve and seat are clear). Upon reassembly consider installing a small inline fuel filter.

If it has a clutch, that would be the problem. An electric clutch will kick on and off when it is hot if it is bad.
