SOURCE: Having problem starting and keeping engine

some have fuel filter some do not , but it sounds like you have contaminated fuel and is is clogging up fuel line or carburetor,look into gas tank with a flash light and see if there are specs floating at bottom of the tank, if there are drain tank of all gas and remove tank and flush it out with brake cleaner, then disconnect both ends of fuel line and spray through tube into white paper towel until u see no dirt/debris. then remove air filter clean foam( soapy water, dry re-oil 10w30 is ok). remove carb from engine spray through main port with carb cleaner not brake cleaner, and use tube and spray through inlet tube while holding throttle wide open reassemble and it should run fine, if not u may need to disassemble carb if not comfortable with this then order new one usually under $100

SOURCE: Can a novice replace a carburetor on a Briggs

Yes its pretty easy you can do it.Are you sure the carb is bad most of them just need a good cleaning .I would disassemble be careful there are some little parts in there and if you are careful and pay attention as you disassemble it you can just clean it .Go to auto parts store get a can of spray carb cleaner .remove bowl be careful the is a float in there a little square or round bellows .Slide the pin out and then the fuel loat pin underneate the float now take out any adjustment screws you can find and spray cleaner in every hole you can find several times and reassemble if idle or fuel mixture screws were removed a standard setting of 1 1/2 turns out from seated position is the norm and some adjustment may be needed once running either in or out till runs smooth.

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!

New Craftsman 20hp Briggs & Stratton 42" riding mower, Model 917.289104. Loses power, dies while mowing. Will not start unless sits 20-30 minutes. Problem began second time I owed with it. ...


first make sure the air intake screen on top of engine is not clogged with debris if thats not a concern you could have a faulty ignition coil etc your engine should have a two year warranty and can be serviced at no charge to you at your local briggs service dealer make sure and check your manual for the fine print though. Briggs makes a great engine and very rarely have I ever seen a problem allthough if you were to have an engine issue it will accur during the first few hours of opperation good luck

Normal maintenance been applied to this rider ? Filters, lube, cleanings ? This sounds like an electrical issue (component hot), or a vacuum in the fuel tank. Next time it 'stops' open the fuel tank up and listen to any air 'whooshing' in.

Mower will not drive


Usually, that's an indication the the seat switch is not working. It's like getting off the seat without locking down the parking brake or getting off the seat with the baldes engaged, same result...engine dies.

Poulan Pro model 185H42ST dies after 30-45 minutes mowing


Put a carb kit in it. If that does not work replace the gas cap they are supposed to breath and if they get clogged it will create a vacuum in the tank starving the engine for fuel.
