Question about Briggs & Stratton Briggs Stratton Intek V - Twin Vertical Ohv Engine with Electric Start 22 Hp, 1" X 3 5/32" Shaft, ModelNo. 44K777 - 0027 - E1

Open Question

I have a 16 hp Briggs & Stratton engine that keeps shutting down after approx 15 - 20 minutes of running. It will restart the first couple of times and resume running but after it shuts off about 4 times, I have to let it sit for 5 - 10 minutes before it will start and stay running. I have cleaned the carb and replaced the fuel filter but it did not help. It seems like when it gets hot, it almost seems like its out of fuel. Could this be vapor lock or could it be and electrical problem that when it heats up, the coil might not be producing spark? Please help, any suggestion is greatly appreciated. Thank you so much

SOURCE: Engine starts but won't stay running

an easy way to know that is to start engine and give it a shot of starting fluid ,if you can keep it running by this method I would replace diaphragm.

SOURCE: Having problem starting and keeping engine

some have fuel filter some do not , but it sounds like you have contaminated fuel and is is clogging up fuel line or carburetor,look into gas tank with a flash light and see if there are specs floating at bottom of the tank, if there are drain tank of all gas and remove tank and flush it out with brake cleaner, then disconnect both ends of fuel line and spray through tube into white paper towel until u see no dirt/debris. then remove air filter clean foam( soapy water, dry re-oil 10w30 is ok). remove carb from engine spray through main port with carb cleaner not brake cleaner, and use tube and spray through inlet tube while holding throttle wide open reassemble and it should run fine, if not u may need to disassemble carb if not comfortable with this then order new one usually under $100

SOURCE: i have a briggs 20 hp intek , it run about 15 or

Is the tank itself clean? Gas can contamination, paint chips, etc., can plug the tank fuel outlet. This engine has a fuel pump too, does it not? Believe if so, it runs off engine vacuum. Check that system. What do the spark plugs look like? They can look good, yet be failed too.
A few other "simple" thoughts.

Good luck

SOURCE: I have a 18 hp briggs and stratton engine that will not start

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.

SOURCE: 5 h.p. briggs and stratton outboard motor shuts off

This has puzzled me a few times in the past. It is most likely related to a fuel issue. If you have an external tank, make sure there is no debris or water in the bottom (looks like a big bubble under the gas), next I would check to make sure the fuel lines are not cracked allowing air to enter. This could also be caused by a bad o-ring at the connector on the fuel tank or motor or the connector is not securely connected.

The condensor is not the problem for they go bad upon not hold a charge. When the engine heats up and the engines dies out the problem may lay in the magnito's frame mounting from swelling from the heat, a loose mounting bolt(s). Or a Magnito that is ready to go out completely

I have a potable generator that will not turn off.it's a 16.5 briggs vanguard v-twin motor.i replaced the coils and the diode wiring assembly.i fill the diode assembly might be backwards.is that possible?


Are you saying the engine will not turn off? The engine shut down uses a ground on the ignition circuit to shut down. This kills the circuit that provides the spark for the engine to run. See if you can trace the circuit for the shut down and check the ground connection.
