Question about Poulan "" Push Mower
I have a Mountfield bvs153 petrol mower. The problem is, that the mower stars ok, works for approx 10mins, then cuts out nd will not fire up again.
It fails after it has 10 minutes to warm up right?
I think you should run it till it fails and then test it for spark.
My guess is that your coil is going bad and heat just triggers the failure. After a while even cooling down wont help.
The good news. If you need to replace the coil its a pretty simple job that can be done with a few hand tools and a new coil. It shouldnt be too expensive either. 25-35 dollars for a new one if your shop around online or go to Ebay.
The only thing special you need to do once you have removed the recoil cover and removed the old coil is to take a piece of thin cardboard *(I actually recommend the box the coils usually come in. But a playing or business card will do) Put this paper between the coil and the flywheel to set the coil gap. Tighten on the screws and then pull out the paper. Put the recoil cover back on and you are done!
Good luck and be careful.
