Lawnmower problem
[Return to Topics]

I push the prime button and the mower will start fairly easily . It will run for about 2 seconds and then die . Any suggestions ? The mower was free but I spent $2.38 for prime button and a couple of screws . Did I spend too much ? The air filter is clean . It's a brig-stratton motor .

i bought a new lawnmower @ canadian tire and have used it maybe 10 times, i had a bit of trouble lately starting it but would run fine after stating it. i decided to check the oil and fould that there is gas in my oil. why would this happen, and now what should i do?

Replace the needle valve and it will run like new

Check all the hoses for breaks. Had an air leak in my tecumseh. The hole decreases the vacuum so the gas will not be pulled up through the carb.

If you hit the prime button again will it stay going? Can you keep it going like that long enough for it to stay going on its own? Some snowmobiles (I know, big jump) are like that, have to keep priming until they warm up.

More likely I'd say your problem is the diaphram in the carb being bad so that it doesn't pump gas up into the carb. Try pulling it over a couple times without prime. Then pull the plug, if its dry, rebuild the carb.

Sure sounds like carb problems. Gas turned off? Take off bowl, maybe water in there. New fuel filter? Did you empty out the gas that was in the tank when you got it?
