Question about Garden

1 Answer

I have a new Weedeater One 190cc 26in blade riding mower and during my 2d use it ran for approx 15 mins and I shut it off and when I attempted to restart the starter kept turning but would not start. I had just filled it with fresh new gas, battery is good after I put a one amp charge on it for 4 hours. It almost makes me feel that one of the safety switch ie: brake pedal deck switch, etc make be showing open somewhere. The schemetic in the owners manual is severely lacking. I shouldn't be having prob's like this with a brand new machine. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, Ernie

    Thanks for your reply. I sent an email much prior to your posting explaining
    that I had fixed the problem. A vine had yanked the spark plug cable ajar
    causing an ignition loss. I don't feel that snapping the plug cable securely
    to the spark plug would void the warranty.

    Also, I had requested a refund of the fee's at that earlier time due to no longer
    needing a technician's help.

    Thanks again and best wishes,,

    Ernie Krist

Check for spark and gas. If adding a few teaspoons of gasoline to the cylinder allows the engine to run for a few seconds, then you know that the ignition system is fine, but there is a blockage of gasoline to the engine.

My lawn tractor craftsman 14.5hp IC OHV B&S stalls approx. 5 mins after starting so I restart and it can stall in another 10-15 min again and so on.

you may have some debris in your gas tank blocking the pickup tube. It will float away when the mower dies, then block the tube after it runs again.

check oil level. Most likely no oil. If no oil, it ran, then got hot and as soon as you truned it off, welded itself to everything. You have a big boat anchol.

Do the basics, check the battery voltage first. If there is not enough battery voltage present when you try to engage the blades it will certainly die and may not start until the battery is either charged or replaced. There are other items to check but do this first.

Craftsman riding mower shuts off after approx 20 mins of use.

ran into this problem twice this season, about drove me crazy - finally traced the problem to the anti-backfire solenoid [the little cylinder at the bottom of the carburetor that holds the float bowl on] - after running fine for 20 minutes or so [it varied], the coil would release the plunger and shut off the gas flow. as soon as you turned off the key and turned it back on, it would start back up - replace the solenoid and problem vanished
