    Your description sounds like the coil to the ignition is not getting enough power, does the mower do this even with a fully charged battery and if so have you cleaned all the battery and other accessible connections?

Blows white smoke dies


Blowing a light colored smoke can be an indicator of burning oil. Have you checked your oil level? If it ran low it may be ceasing from heat and stalling. If it was running rich with too much fuel it should be dark colored smoke which can cause stalls. If your unit has a radiator a bad head gasket may let radiator fluid into the combustion resulting in white smoke. A little white smoke on start up can also just be moisture burning off in the exhaust but this should not cause stalling conditions, however if you're low on fuel that could contribute too. More details are important to narrow down your problem.

Sounds like you may have some internal engine issues. Check your spark plug(s) to see if they are oil soaked. If so, you may have some issues with the engine.

Mower wants to stall when blades are engaged on a Huskee 13hp 38'' cut Tecumseh engine 6 speed on the go shift


Usually when the motor stalls when blades are engaged on any mower it is the carb that needs cleaned and rebuilt. The motor isn't getting enough gas to handle the load.

Engine stalls, check engine light, not fuel filter.


the white smoke as it stalls could be steam in the exhaust. This is caused by coolant leaking into cylinders from a leaking head gasket. You should check cylinder compression next with a compression tester.
