Small Engine Troubleshooting Problems? Ask a Mechanic Now.
Hi my name is ***** ***** welcome to Just Answer. , when the clutch pedal is released does it die like it's loosing spark or struggle and die like the governor is not picking up rpms ?
Hi I asked you when tell clutch is released does it just die like it's been turned off or does it bog down ? . I never got a response from you
OK , with it off , if you engage the blade can you see if it's putting significant tension on the belt. ? Also does it run smoothly because a carburetor with a minimal blockage can affect the governor picking up speed under a load
OK , so what you have said it sounds like it will do this with the blades engaged or dis engaged, in neutral or drive right ? , does the motor run smooth normally because it sounds like once there is tension on the drive belt ( pedal released) the engine dies because of the load , meaning the governor isn't increasing rpms as it should to keep the motor running
Hi, my name is***** will try to assist you.
Does the engine stall or die as soon as you release out on the clutch? This could be a seat safety switch issue that is causing your problem.
If you keep the clutch pedal depressed and try to engage the mower deck what happens? Will the mower deck come on and run or does the engine stall or die as well?
