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

I have a Simplicity Broadmoor riding mower (model number 1694629). Mower was working fine then it quit running. It will restart but only run for about a minute or two, then it dies again. I can restart it each time but am unable to keep it running. What would be the cause of this problem.

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.

Check gas cap and make sure the vent is not plugged.
make sure the carb solenoid does not lose power after the engine starts. if it does happen to lose power check your ignition switch

I got stuck in the mud the other day. Now the belt that turns the blades is loose. On my old mower I just pulled a lever and the belt tightened.

either the belt came off a pulley of the spring for the tensioner cam off the mounting area.....or the belt is broke.

Wont go when warm

If you mean it won't start after the mower gets hot, that is usually a fire or coil issue, maybe even coil adjustment. You have to check for fire and adequate fuel as soon as it happens.

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.

Brakes quit working when you push pedal down on simplicity riding mower

I know for a fact that you can download owner's manuals and illustrated parts lists at the simplicity website as i downloaded them for mine. they are quite detailed and show "how to" for adjustments, etc. go over there, and download the manual and follow the instructions. Google "simplicity mower".
