No professional, but my father's Murray did the same thing a few years back and it was the Coil going bad. Replaced it and it was fixed. Hope this helps.

Your cap should vent, it is bad so replace it. The vacuum is holding back the flow of fuel. Hope this helps, plese post solved on fixya.com.So I get credit for a solved problem if it does. If not, check back and give me more info.

Hi, I have a John Deere Z225 with an 18.5 Briggs


Although, this does sound like a fuel issue due to past experiences I want to say the problem might not be fuel at all, but before we go that route try one thing. On that particular model I believe the gas cap is vented, if so try running it till it acts up, then remove the gas cap for a moment and see if the engine returns to running normal, if not I believe your coil is going out. I have seen alot of these engines recently where the works fine but when the get hot they quit functioning all together or only function part of time which in your case would indicate why it is missing and fowling the plug. When these tend to do this after they cool back down they function properly again until they get heated up again. I hope this helps you.

18.5 hp Briggs & Stratton no spark after running out of gas


I believe you are right about heat induce electrical problem.
About all there is for ignition is the coil and breaker points.

John deere lt155 lawn tractor shuts off when it gets hot while mowing, could this be electrical?


I had a similar problem lasy year.
Try this:
As soon as the machine seems to be stalling, loosen the gas cap.
If the engine continues to run, clean the gas cap vent hole(s).

Huskee 16 hp Tecumseh starts and runs great but


When it shuts down check it for spark. You sound like you may have a weak coil. OR

You might have water in your fuel and it only runs until it hits the water level in the carb. You can try draining your carb *(do this when mower is cold...never drain gas from a hot mower!) and see if the mower runs longer. While you are draining your fuel you can check the float level too. A float that closes too early or that is partially obstructed might only let in enough fuel to run for short periods. Then, your three minutes of sitting is just to let the carb bowl refill. When you remove the carb bowl let the float hang down and note the fuel flow. Is it fast? Or is it just a slow drip? If it seems slow you should work the float up and down a few times to see if the flow improves. If it does improve consider draining all the fuel out and cleaning the gas tank.

Good luck and be careful!

Lawnmower shuts off after 15-20 mins of running


Sounds like a bad coil to me ... it only makes sense that has the heat from the engine transfers into the coil the coil windings expand and causes a open resulting in ignition failure and no spark to the plugs... if you need parts try www.partstree.com

Mower runs for 10-15 mins. then shuts off.


Check your gas cap. There must be a vent for the gas to flow joedog
