Question about John Deere Garden
Couple of questions:
While you were cutting, did the mower stop all of a sudden (like something was hit), or did it bog down, or surge before it stopped?
Was it out of fuel? Or was the fuel level low and you were mowing on an incline?
If the engine stopped all of a sudden, then you may have partially sheared the flywheel key, throwing off the timing. You will have to pull off the air shroud and get a look at the key to see if it is damaged. The key itself should be rectangular in the groove, with no distortion.
If the engine was hunting / surging, fuel level may have gotten too low and started sucking air. It may take a bit for the trapped air to find its way back up to the tank. The fuel shutoff solenoid, on bottom of the carburetor bowls, may have an intermittent contact (loose connection?). If this solenoid doesn't open, fuel is prevented from going up the emulsion tube.
Check your fuel filter, it may be loaded with water or trash and coincidentally became clogged.
