Check the coil by removing the upper shroud let the engine run until it shuts down. NO LONGER THAN 5 MINUITES. or you can have heat issues. With gloves on remove one of the spark plugs plug the wire into the spark plug ground the threads to the motor try turnning over the engine. If no spark is seen gap the coil 10 thousanths on both sides. No need to remove the rust on the armature. I find it easier to use two feeler gauges between the magnate and the coil. Retest it if it dies disconnect the yellow wire. If it runs then it's a switch ie: break/clutch blade lever reverse lever and the seat. clean them with break cleaner. If it doesn't run or fire then replace the coil. Hope this helps:

My lawn trimmer stalls out after running for several minutes


id Check the spark plug. If the electrode on the plug is worn , id replace the plug. Make sure you check the gap on the plug before, you install it. Id also check to see if the air cleaner is dirty, or not. If the air cleaner is dirty the engine can't breath. Is the gas old that's in the trimmer? If it is dump it out, an replace it with new gas/oil. Are you sure that you mixed the gas/oil correctly? Is there a choke button on the trimmer? Make sure that after you start the trimmer,an it warm's up a little you shut the choke back off.

Oil is fine, runs fine for about 10 minutes then bogs down and dies. Let it sit for 10 minutes it will start again and run fine for another 10 minutes. Used to be 20 minutes, then 15. The cooler the...


It could easily be an electrical issue, or not. Get a spark tester (hooks up to the spark plug). Pep boys, Autozone, and Napa all sell them for less than $10. Check for spark when the mower has quit. If no spark, most likely need to replace the ignition module. Also check the flywheel key, if it is has been sheared or even knicked, the engine will run hot.
If you still have spark when engine has failed, check the vent on the gas cap. A clogged vent will cause a vacuum to form in the tank and stall the engine.
Good luck!

It sound more like a plugged catalytic converter. When you start the engine the pressure starts to build until the engine sufficates then after you let it set the pressure bleeds off and lets the engine restart.

Carburetor high speed adjustment ( screw nearest the filter ) open ( counterclockwise ) 1/2 turn.
