I have a Craftsman lawn mower, with a Briggs & Stratton

Customer Question

Hello, I have a Craftsman lawn mower, with a Briggs & Stratton engine. It is a 6.75 horse, gold series, 190cc. It is 3 yeas old. It worked fine all summer, but now, it does start, but stops after 30 seconds to a minute. When I try to start it back up, it does not start, I need to wait approx 5 minutes , then it will start, but stop again after 30 sec to a minute. After going thru this for about 5 tries, it will stay started so I can cut the grass. Hope you can help!! Thanks Mike

How old is the gas you are using? Is this the first time you are attempting to start your engine, since last summer? These are only troubleshooting questions.
