Hello, W/D here.
The two most common things that can cause this would be fuel or air starvation.
Fuel starvation can be as little as a plugged pin hole in the vent cap, a plugged fuel filter, or as much as a dirty/mis-adjusted carburetor. Crack the cap open on the tank so that air can get into the tank along the threads if the cap. Try to start, and see if this helps. If NO, follow the fuel line down from the tank towards the carburetor. Check the fuel filter. A partially plugged filter may allow just enough gasoline to pass to start, but not sustain the engine.
Air starvation can usually be traced back to a dirty air filter, so check and clean that. You can blow it out with an air compressor, or rap it on a garbage can rim to displace some of the debris, or replace it (replacement is best, if seriously dirty).
Best regards, --W/D--

Why won't my mower just run already?


Hi, most likely the carby has dirt in it again(if this is what the shop have been cleaning each time). If it comes good when cold the valves need adjusting. Regards Phil.

Lawn Boy mower will not start. New gas and plug.


Is the plug getting wet? if not, try introducing fuel to the intake and attempt to start it again, the interlock on the handle works by killing the ignition fire and applying a brake to the flywheel, this should be a Tecumseh engine, carb troubles are quite prevalent on these, by substituting fuel to the intake you are acting as the fuel supply, if it starts and runs briefly you have confirmed a fuel system issue

Oil change


STOP !

Your lawn mower is has a 4 cycle engine
It does not require oil to be mixed with the gas
The oil for the crankcase should be a 10W-30 or 10W- 40
NO GAS IN THE OIL
What you have is a 2 cycle oil that is mixed with gas for most weed eaters, chain saws, ect
Putting a gas/oil mix in your mower WILL severely damage it destroying the main bearings and could lead to an explosion or fire.
Please be careful

Craftsman riding mower starts rides a few minutes then stops


Make sure that when you check the oil that the mower has sat I say for at least 5mins. Your mower might have an oil sencer. If not I think it might be the coil gettin hot and shorting out.

Craftman lawnmower start and turn off and do not stay running .


your carb needs to be rebuilt. there is a rubber seat that swells over time and then your float will not allow any gas through. so it will start and run briefly when you prime it. take it to a mower shop for a tune-up.
