Briggs and Stratton Vanguard twin stopping running and wont start
A couple of things you might try...off the shelf from Lowe's or walmart is engine repair in a bottle...I've used it and it works, but read instructions. If that doesn't work, you may have a lacquer build up on carb. Pull the fuel bowl off carefully and check for a clear opening in the fuel pickup as they may be clogged. Remove gas tank and flush it and then make sure it's really dry...replace fuel filter and install two in series in place of one. Also, try to find a gas station that sells ethanol free gas and use it for your small engines. Hope this helps some.

Hayward pool heater model h100d1 ignites with a bang and goes out
I had the same problem. It was my igniter. It was all corroded and oxidized. Would not properly ignite the gas fast enough and when it finally ignited, the excess gas in the chamber would explode and put out the flame and cycle over and over with bang. Took igniter out, cleaned and filed down the copper prongs. Replaced and all was well.
