MF1560 with 3 cylinder Iseki engine. After running normally

Customer Question

MF1560 with 3 cylinder Iseki engine. After running normally for around 1.5 - 2 hours it will lose power and eventually stop. Seems to be starved of fuel. Fuel filter was recently replaced and problem has only begun since then.

Good morning, sorry for delay, my name is ***** ***** you for asking your question, I will try and help you out.

When you replaced fuel filter was it a OEM replacement or a different brand? (oem is a original replacement filter)

A lot of times the micron rating in non OEM filters is smaller, which does keep more junk out of carb but restricts fuel flow to much and will lean out engine and cause it to stall.

I would start by replacing fuel filter with a oem filter since this issue showed up after filter change.

While you are changing filter look for any garbage in inlet of old filter. Blow out filter from outlet into a clean coffee can to look at fuel quality and garbage,,if garbage clean out tank and replace lines as needed.
