Try running it with a loosened gas cap. The vent could be plugged.

I don;t know what engine is on your mower but if it has the self contained electronic ignition coil I have seen happen on several engines. It would run good for several min. then the spark just stops . And it will not spark again until it sets and cools . Just make sure it is the ignition that is not working.

My car is sputtering and dying. If I try to restart it, it will immediately go into sputtering/dying mode. If I wait a while an hour or so it will start up and drive fine.


When was the last time that the carburetor was stripped and cleaned? Also have you checked the fuel filter? Finally, the problem seems to come and go as the engine is run (and it gets hot) check that the fuel line and any electrical cables are well away from the hot engine as far as is possible.

Does the mower die right away (cuts out) or does it sputter to a halt. Sputtering out would indicate a fuel problem. If it just cuts out when hot, then more likely an ignition problem. Your coil may need replacing. Take a close look at the coil wire (spark plug wire) and its routing. Make sure it's not touching part of the engine where it's heating up and has caused a "leak" to ground it out when it gets hot. If all is well then check your spark when the engine is hot and cuts out. Make sure you have a very good blue spark and not a weak one (check it cold first and then compare!). Again, indicating a possible ignition coil problem. Hope this helps and best of luck to you.

Troy-bilt self-propelled w/briggs and stratton 6.75hp after starting runs for 3 or 4 mins. dies out and in 3 mins later will start and do the same thing any suggestions?....thanka abb


Hello. Your carburator is partially clogged up. That said, if you havn't installed a new fuel filter and new air filter this year do so. Also put in a new plug if u havn't lately. Finally get a bottle of a fuel additive called seafoam and pour it into the fuel following the directions on the bottle. J.

22 In Craftsman Self propelled.Starts easy, runs good for about 15-20 mins. Starts missing and dies. Will start again in about 30 mins New spark plug/ air filter


Oh my, that is so annoying. There is probably dirt in the carb. or the gas tank. What I think happens is, the dirt gets sucked up into the fuel line and clogs the carb, then when the mower sits for a while the dirt goes back into the tank for another couple minutes. I have absolutely no tolerance for this when it happens.

My saw starts fine, runs great for about 5-10 minutes, then dies. If I let it sit for another 5-10 minutes it fires first pull and runs strong- for about 5-10 min then dies. Any ideas? Thanks.


Hello. Check the filter in the bottom of the fuel tank, I am betting that it is partially gummed up and restricting the flow of fuel. Regards, Joe
