Question about Yard Machines 155 Torque Briggs Stratton Riding Lawn Mower (NonCARB Compliant) 13AM772F000
Recently had same problem with this machine with a Tecumseh 17.5hp. There is a solenoid on the bottom of the fuel bowl that controls fuel flow inside the carb. It is controlled by the ignition switch. Mine got stuck in the closed position. I could not find a replacement, so a small engine mechanic told me I could disable this by removing the solenoid and cutting off the pin. This worked for me. Then, for safety, put a fuel cutoff valve in the fuel line.
Hope this helps.

Sounds like you need the carb cleaned. This can be a pretty tedious job. It's easier with small engines but still risky. If you have a lot of mechanical experience I would go for it, but if not you should take it into a repair shop. http://www.bensalemlawn.com

There might be something wrong with the engine. While your lawn care equipment is different from my car, my car was doing something similar a few months ago. I can't remember what exactly was wrong with it, but I can recommend having a professional mechanic look at it. We can't be as much help since we can't look at the engine.

Air is not getting into the engine, clean the air filter. Or it may be due to a fuel blockage in the pipe. I would clean the air filter and the carberator.
First try just the air filter, you may just get away with it ey! Won't be too much work.
