Hello, try tightening the cylinder head bolts. Does it make a hissing sound when trying to restart? If you tilt back on the handle to raise the front will it start back up?

i mean no it won"t start back up

Yes it makes a hissing sound? It starts right back up if the front is raised?
Expert:  Vince O. replied 6 months ago.
If it is making a hissing sound and tightening the head bolts doesn't help you could have a valve problem or a leaking head gasket

Well you didn't give me much to go on.If it is shooting grass out when you try to restart you could be cutting high grass at a low setting. Does it smoke at all?
Expert:  Vince O. replied 6 months ago.
Remove the air cleaner and spray a little carb cleaner directly into carb when trying to restart to see if it starts and there's a fuel problem.If it don't start check for spark right away-put a spare plug in the wire and have someone pull the roe while you watch for a spark.
