Honda lawn mower engine dies shortly after starting

Hello Folks,

I got my Honda HRS mower a few months ago – now the engine sputters and dies a few minutes after starting. Has anyone had this issue?


Hey Larry,

It’s possible that your carburetor’s air fuel ratio needs to be readjusted for your setting – is this isn’t the issue, try cleaning the carburetor thoroughly. I’d also recommend inspecting the fuel cap’s vent. If this gets clogged with dirt the engine won’t be able to draw in gasoline from the fuel tank to keep running.
