A few more things to check.
1. The oil level. If the oil level is low the oil level sensor will ground the ignition.
2. Check the wiring from the seat safety switch to make sure it is connected.
3. Follow the black wires from the ignition control module to make sure none of them are chaffing and do not have a chassis ground.

If you still have problems disconnect ONE lead from the oil level sensor and see if you have spark. Most of the time these oil level sensors are the common failure.

I have a 22 HP briggs engine. Runs great for 15 to 30 minutes and then loses power. Let it sit for 10 mins. and good again for short time. It has a fuel solenute and it works but gets very hot. I mean very...


Are you saying the engine gets hot or the solenoid..if engine ? What oil are you using should be no lighter then SAE 30 for summer vehicles..Sounds more like your oil is breaking down and your Pistons and rings are getting tighter..the motor will start to work hard getting hotter from friction..if solenoid it should be replaced..Hope this helps..good luck

Most likely yes. It will look like a car oil filter. It looks like a round can that is screwed to the engine.

The govenor rod cannot be adjusted. The springs are intact. Motor revs up but will not idle down. It is 23 HP.


Just guessing here, but if there is no control of the throttle and the engine over revs, then more than likely the governor control is broke. Briggs if famous for that problem. Governor is around 25 dollars and a lower crankcase gasket. Requires the engine to be pulled, lower crankcase removed, remove all pieces of old governor and then re assemble with new governor and gasket.////Before doing all this check that both springs are on the governor on the exterior of motor. If you manually hold the governor arm back, counterclockwise, and it still revs, then you need to replace governor. Don't let it rev for long or it with throw a pushrod or worse. good luck

It appears that you have a slight mis-adjustment in the idle speed and idle mixture. To adjust setup, start with at least a half tank of fuel, and have engine at operating temperature (That is warm but not overly Hot). The Briggs & Stratton Website manuals section should show the locations of the adjusting screws if you are not sure of them.
To adjust idle speed set Throttle control to minimum and adjust screw on throttle butterfly to maintain a good idle speed. To adjust idle mixture, screw in idle mixture screw (Lean) until motor falters and then screw out (Rich) until it falters again. Correct setting is the halfway point of these two positions. You may have to re-adjust idle speed again and also the mixture to get best running.
If you are not comfortable doing this, take it to a B & S dealer.
