Sounds like you will need to clean your carburetor.
Sometimes you can get by with priming the carburetor a few times, and letting it run a few times like that and it will flush the gunk out of the jets,but most of the time you will need to rebuild the carburetor.
If the mower/weedeater is over a couple years old, then I also recommend that you buy and install a new carburetor repair kit,because the diaphragm will get hard and that will cause it to be hard to crank.
When you clean your carburetor and remove the jet screws, You will first seat the jet screws and count the number of turns it takes to seat the jets from their original position.
That way when you go to put the jets back in, you know how many turns they were in/out.

Good Luck,
I hope this helped

Husqvarna YTH1842 stops running when hot


Try slackening the fuel filer cap, if the breather is blocked in the cap it will vacume and stop the fuel from flowing, if it runs ok with the cap loose replace the cap.

Stalls after 20 mins. of running fine. (Starving for gas)


From the rear of machine look at the top left of fuel tank for the fuel line.Where line comes out of tank see if it is pinched where it goes down between frame and tank,grab line and see if it moves freely.If that is OK loosen fuel cap after 10 minutes of run time to see if your vent hole in cap is working.These are 2 common problems for the L series mowers.

You probably need to rinse the fuel tank out, To check if this will solve your problem disconnect the fuel line from fuel tank going to the fuel filter, remove gas cap and blow air thru line back into tank. This should clear any sediment impeding fuel flow temporarily. Reconnect line and start motor. If it runs longer than it has been then your fuel tank is in need of cleaning.

Motor runs for 5-10 min. then starts missing and quits.


Check your spark first,if you do not have spark your problem is the coils-if you do have spark the problem probaly lies withone of your valves getting stuck after getting hot and soonas it cools down a little it closes and then you can restart it till it gets hot again.Hope this helps

Lawn tractor only runs when i spray engine starter in carb, then it stops


Bypass the filter. If it runs with the gas tank hooked strait to the carb., you'll know you've a clogged fuel filter. If this doesn't work, try cleaning the carb. It's not that complicated and doesn't have that many parts.
