This is probably related to a carburetor problem. Try removing the brass bolt that holds the carburetor bowl on the car. Clean any sediment and water out of the bowl and inspect the brass bolt. There are very small holes at the bottom and along the smooth part above the threads. This is the carbs main jet and all these small to tiny holes need to be open for the carb to operate correctly allowing the engine to run.

If spark and fuel flow are both good then the problem might lie with the carburetor needing to be cleaned out.

Why did my lawnboy lawn mower quit while it was running?


If your not out of gas then loosen the fuel cap a bit and start your engine. if the unit keeps running then replace your fuel cap because it's not venting which builds up pressure in the tank and stops fuel flow. Another possibility is that you got dirt in your carb and it's blocking a passage. In this case clean your carb

My lawn mower will start then it will die after a few seconds, what could be the problem


If the mower was tipped it is quite possible oil from the engine has traveled up the breather and soaked the air filter in oil, this would richen the engine up and stop it running, remove the air filter and check for oil saturation.

My daughter added oil then proceeded to mow the lawn. mower started smoking then quit. When I got home from work I was able to start the engine one time and it smoked a lot. I turned it off and have not...


With the engine cold, check the oil level. Oil level is quite important especially in a smaller engine. Try to clean all excess oil off engine and body. Then, if you can get it running....check for any leaks. If it is still smoking, it has other issues besides being too full of oil. The oil breather will be full of oil. The oil filter may be saturated with oil. Check those 2 things especially as they allow motor oil to be drawn into the carburetor and cause excessive smoking. Pull out and clean the spark plug. Post back if needed.

Mower only runs two min and quits


Sounds like a blocked or dirty fuel inlet.

Remove the carb bowl and work the float up and down until gas flow improves. Be gentle! Just a little light pressure from beneath and the float should swing up about a quarter inch.

The short run is due to the carb bowl not refilling fast enough to keep up with full throttle demand.

Make sure when you put the carb bowl back on there arent any fuel leaks before trying to run the mower.

Good luck and be careful!

Engine won't start . Pour gas in cylinder it starts then quits.


hi lou. your carbeurator is gummed up. It will need to be removed, soaked in carb cleaner for three hours and then rebuilt using the correct kit.

if you are not familiar with how to do this i recommend that u have it done by a lawn mower pro

Craftsman 19.5 riding mower starts runs quits no power


When you let it sit did you remove all the fuel or add a additive? If you did not then I would recommend that you remove all the fuel and add brand new fuel to your system. Gasoline only last for about 3 to 4 months before it will start to go bad and this sounds like your problem
