Lawn Mower starts for two seconds then dies


Personally, I appreciate it as well. I have a mower out back that I'd like to fix that does the same #@!#@!@#ing thing, so I hope these great guys figure it out with you! Po)

Lawn Mower starts for two seconds then dies


I just had the same thing happen to me today (run for a second or two then die). After checking and cleaning the fuel line, I discovered after taking the plug out that the end of it (connector) had unscrewed a little; probably from the vibration of the mower. I screwed it tight and the mower started right up and stayed running.

I never did figure out the source of this problem. I spent weeks trying to figure it out. (I didn't try AlDaja's solution though) Eventually, I gave it away on Craigslist to a helicopter mechanic who said he was 100% he could fix it. I hope he did...

He can, but he has to turn them upside down so that the blade is on the top...

I did everything with cleaning the carb, also I did what some say not to do. I pulled the fuel feed line and blew my air nozzle through it. I then did it from the opposite direction. Then I blew out the fuel tank and the air filter cover. Changed the filter and put it the same old gas. Runs like brand new it just took a couple extra pulls to get things flowing again.

I posted this since I couldn't find a solution and hope that this may help the next guy like me who is too proud to bring something to a repair shop before he has taking the whole the thing apart and tried everything.

I have a briggs engine (lawnmower) 1999 that only runs if you feed the carb by dripping fuel into the carb via a straw,as long as you keep fuel going in it runs. Now I bought a carb kit from Lowe's and matched up the design of the old gaskets to the new and they are identical. I bought a new bulb too, The primer does not get fuel up to the bulb??? Now what do I do??? All passageways have been cleaned with carb cleaner and blown out with shop air.

-starts, but will not keep running.....after watching three U-Tube how to's and reading five how to's--I got my mower to start. For a novice, let me tell you go straight for the carburetor and clean the jets with the "loaf bread" tie wrap and spray into the carburetor over and over with the carburetor cleaner....BINGO
