The oil level is low. when the oil drains from the engine it fills the base to the level of the sensor. When it runs it takes a little time for the oil level to drop below the sensor..........Hope this helps.

Make sure air filter is clean or replaced. Check oil level. Change oil if not done this year. Remove plug, clean and gap. Ensure gasoline isn't over 30 days old and use a gas stabilizer if gas cap isn't marked E85.

There could be some type of contaminate in your fuel/lines. Check for that!
Then check your fuel filter. and hoses.

2 year old craftsman 42" deck tractor runs fine for 15 minutes then sputters and dies. Will start, run 2-3 minutes, die again. Leave sit will run for 20 minutes.


if it restarts immediately, check the vent in the gas cap for restriction. also, the solenoid on the bottom of the carburetor may be sticking or getting weak. if you have to let it sit for awhile before it retarts, the ignition module may be breaking down when it heats up. i'd bet on the gas cap or solenoid though

Mower runs good for fifteen minutes then the


Mine did this too. THe semi-transparent fuel filter will look like no gas is in it if you have the problem I had. The gas cap on the tank has a tiny breather hole to keep it from coming under a vacuum as gas runs out. Push thru it with a toothpick to clear the hole. That's all it was. But I did have some black debris clogging the filter and had same symptom.

MTD 12.5 HP Ride On Mower won't stay running


It could be a needle valve sticking or a mal-adjusted float but more common is a fuel filter that is restricted, once you use up the fuel in the line and float bowl it runs out and dies. A less common but easily tested issue is when the mower has run for the amount of time it begins to sputter and die, loosen the cap on the fuel tank just a bit, if it helps or resolves the issue the vent in the cap may be clogged.

MTD Yardman push mower runs fine for awhile then cuts off.


Try buying a new plug first but if it continues then I would say that there is debris in the carb.
