Question about Briggs & Stratton 190cc 875 Series OHV Walk Behind Lawn Mower Engine 25mm x 3532Inch Length Crankshaft 12S5020025B1
I have a 190cc B&S lawn mower motor on a Troy Bilt 2 in 1 frame that was running fine for about 15 minutes then it just died. Tried to start it again and it would only run for 2 - 4 seconds repeatedly and die again. Checked usual things; fuel line, carb filter, spark plug - all seem fine.

There should be a drain plug on the underside of the mower deck. Raise that side of deck, remove the plug and drain the oil. Replace the plug and add new oil. Hope this helped.

Check your oil level. If it is way over full, smell it to see if it smells like gasoline. If it does, you have a carburetor leaking gas into the engine crankcase. If you recently had the mower over on its side for blade changing or inspection, you have gotten oil up on top of the piston and it should burn off in a few minutes of running. Check your air filter to see if it is soaked with oil, replace it if it is.

Actually there is still something blocking the carb jet inside the float bowl or... there is a bit of debris in the fuel air mixture screw / needle jet on the side of the carb. This happens more than you would tend to believe on a rfecently cleaned carb. A piece of loose / floating debris gets sucked into the already cleaned carb and blocks a passage.
If you leave the choke on it will probably run but as soon as you take off the choke it dies. i.e. blocked fuel passage somewhere.

Maybe the engine is running with the fuel from the primer bulb (about few seconds), the carburator is not working and need to be removed checked and cleaned, the most common fail is a jet clogged.
