Welcome to JUST ANSWER small engines, let me try to help you !! I don't know it all, but maybe together we can get you a satisfactory answer!

The main drive solenoid is dropping out, it can be just a bad solenoid, or it can be the foot switch, dropping the voltage to the solenoid. With it being intermittent, solenoid is the part that gives most problems.

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
In your opinion I should change the solenoid. Do you think the coil in there is getting weak
Expert:  Curtis B. replied 1 month ago.

Yes, in my opinion , I would replace the solenoid, it is a wear item and needs to be replaced occasionally anyway, and it is cheaper than replacing the foot control!
