Thanks for the welcome...Avon, NY. I was there just recently...at the Barilla facility! Lovely town! It was a gorgeous day. Yes, that is Scout the Wonder Dog! I am also interested in how Tswisla progresses...

Hello tswisla,

 

Just reading your post now (10/2013). Wanted you to know I have the same mower and stalling problem. It's odd because it doesn't stall every time I mow, and it happens in all sorts of weather and temperatures— humid, dry, hot, warm, cool? What I've narrowed it down to is the gas cap. There have been several times when it began sputtering and before it fully stalled-out I began unscrewing the gas cap and it came right back to life. I haven't replaced the cap because the problem hasn't made me quite nutty enough yet—  plus, I was thinking I might be able to modify the existing cap to allow it to breathe better but I'm not sure how. Did you discover a definitive cause for your mowers blubbering and stalling?

:welcome: to GTTalk
Sorry to hear you're having problems. The gas cap should have a small hole in it for allowing air to move, if not, it will create a vacuum and act like it runs out of gas.

Becareful with trying to modify the gas cap. It needs to be able to vent without letting water get in.

Welcome to GTtalk,  As MH81 & AVB have said it sounds like the vent in the gas cap.  I use a can of air, it doesn't have a lot of pressure, to clear a clogged vent.
