Small Engine Troubleshooting Problems? Ask a Mechanic Now.
HI, my name is***** will be assisting you.
How long does the engine run before it starts to act up and stall on you? Are you able to immediately restart it or do you have to wait a few minutes before it will restart?
My thoughts would be a fuel tank vent issue or ignition coil issue. If you can restart the machine within a few minutes of it stalling then I would look at the fuel tank vent which is normally part of the fuel tank cap. You can try running the machine with the cap loose or remove the cap and put something like cheesecloth over the tank opening so that it can still get air but no trash can get in and see what happens.
Thank you it has been a pleasure to assist you.
