Your description sounds normal, gas engines stop when guel is used up, but I presume that you meant after the prime fuel is used up. This sounds like a fuel delivery problem, and most likely within the carb itself, you need to disassemble and clean out all blockages.

Why does my 6.5 hp kohler lawn mower keep pulling oil into carb air filter


Its to stop the dust blocking the filter. The filter should be cleaned with petrol every 4 to 6 months to remove the dust & oil build up, cleaned in/with petrol and re-oiled. Its also good to clean the filter housing each time you clean the filter

Pushmower won't start?


A few quick steps can help you diagnose the problem. Remove the air filter cover and air filter. Spray a shot of carb cleaner into the carb and try to start the mower. If the mower starts on the prime then you have a fuel issue. Be sure your fuel is fresh (less than a week old. Fuel is bad at 21 days old) and clean or rebuild the carb. If the mower wont start on the prime then it is an ignition or compression problem. Start by checking that the stop cable is pulling the bail off ground sufficiently.

It also could be the stop switch is not opening up. On mower you have a stop bail that a cable is attach to the engine if this cable does not open the stop switch, when the bail is pulled back, the mower will not allow the mower to start. The stop cable may need to be replaced because it is stretched out. HTH
Good Day. mate.

Nannie what can be wrong with my power devil petrol lawn mower the engine wont keep running then cuts out petrol and oil ok


Check air filter, check screen in bottom of fuel tank,
New spark plug and also check the spark.
If there is a weak spark, the coil may need to be replaced.

If you have good spark, clean air filter, and clean fuel tank screen, then the carberator will need to be pulled of and cleaned out with solvent
