RUNS 2 MINUTES QUITS WHAT A PAIN ED


Check the fuel filter, air cleaner, and muffler for plugging. Check the fuel lines for decay or other damage. Make sure the carburetor is tightly fastened to the engine. Will it start and run another two minutes just after it quits? Try loosening the fuel cap to see if that affects the running time. When it quits, remove the spark plug to check for spark. If nothing, the ignition module may be failing. If it appears to be loss of fuel when it quits, the carburetor may not be pumping fresh fuel into itself--remove the carburetor and check the impulse passage that runs from the engine to the rear of the carburetor for leaks of any kind. Hope some this helps!

Oil is fine, runs fine for about 10 minutes then bogs down and dies. Let it sit for 10 minutes it will start again and run fine for another 10 minutes. Used to be 20 minutes, then 15. The cooler the...


It could easily be an electrical issue, or not. Get a spark tester (hooks up to the spark plug). Pep boys, Autozone, and Napa all sell them for less than $10. Check for spark when the mower has quit. If no spark, most likely need to replace the ignition module. Also check the flywheel key, if it is has been sheared or even knicked, the engine will run hot.
If you still have spark when engine has failed, check the vent on the gas cap. A clogged vent will cause a vacuum to form in the tank and stall the engine.
Good luck!

Runs for about 45 mins then shuts off


Hi there:
make sure to read the full post before to procceed, ok?

When it stops I supposse you try to start it again. What happens??. 1.-Runs again or you have to wait until it cool's off ??
If it starts but stops in the next minute you may have a clogged gas filter.

2.-If it has no gas filter, then you migth be having armature problems, to check just unplug the spark plug and use another one making sure the metal part is in good contact wit the metal part, be really careful the engine is going to be really hot, so use gloves and ask someone to pull the cord as if it were to run and look for spark, If no spark check the oil level to be correct, if so, then let it cool and try for spark if there's spark then the problem is your armature.

3.- Prior to do ANYTHING make sure there's enough gasoline in the tank. You won't believe me but happens quite often.

Mantis 4 cycle (brand new): oil leaking out, smoking soaking air cleaner, quits running..


Sounds like your gas tank is not breathing properly. try this: the next time you run the tiller and it begins to stall out, try loosening the gas cap. It should start running again. This means that the gas cap is clogged. Unclog it or purchase another one.

Try buying a new plug first but if it continues then I would say that there is debris in the carb.

The most likely problem is the ignition module. It is probably going out. when a bad ignition module gets hot from use, it stops working, which kills the lawn mower since there is no spark. Once it cools off it sometimes works. This can be a some what costly part, $60 - $80. You might want to take it to a lawnmower repair shop and have them check it out, since there are other issues that could be the cause to your problem. If you have a spark tester, you could test the ignition module to see if you get spark, both before you start the mower, and after it quits on you.
