My Husqvarna riding lawn mower shuts off while mowing. It will run for a short time then shut off while. If you let it sit for awhile it will start back up and run for a short time and shut off again. What is the problem?
Check the vent hole in your gas cap. After it runs a while the vacuum created by gas flowing out of the tank without air flowing in does not allow the gas to flow to the carburetor. Never mind if you have a fuel pump.
I have a ten year old Husqvarna logth2448t 48" riding mower. I have never had a stitch of trouble in all these years. There was a slight leak around seal last year. I paid $250 to repair it. it leaks worse now than it did then. So we just add oil. I found a mouse nest in the air intake a few weeks ago. I took it apart, cleaned out the air filter, shopvac-ed gently all areas.
The current problem is that it runs and then dies after ten minutes. I bought a new battery. It cranked up and ran the last few weeks. Today it cranked right up, ran fifteen minutes, and lost power slowly to the blades, then it seemed like it lost power all over. I decided to get a new belt and install (it had never been done so it needed it). Again, it ran fifteen minutes and the blades lost power slowly and it just wound down basically! What on earth could this be?
May need a new coil. Check to see if the coil is cracked.
I had the exact same problem. In another question on this site someone suggested the gas cap vent was clogged. This was the problem and fix for me. It made total sense because it always felt like the engine wasn't getting gas before it died.
I have a Husqvarna lawn tractor, currently w/snowthrower attached. When running to warm it up it idles fine, but when I engage PTO switch or start to move in any direction, it stalls. It can be running for 5 minutes or 50 minutes the result is the same thing. The dealer says it is the seat switch, but I'm currently listening to it purr, but it won't engage or move w/out stalling.
Help! Any ideas?
This could be an issue with the drive chain on the tractor and when put in gear the tractor can stall. If it was an issue with gas or even spark plugs the tractor would stall immediately. I think there is a gear problem and when engaged it is cutting off the motor and not moving forward.
I have a Husqvarna yth2348, that was stalling shortly after it started. It acted like the choke was stuck, after tracing the choke cable it was not. I replaced the carburetor and fuel filter, but am still having the same problem.
The fuel line may be clogged
Have you checked the entire undercarriage for nests. This time of year especially, mice nests can wreck havoc on mowers. Wasp nests also, but that is more in early summer.
Post back with an update.
My tractor was galloping last week This week it stalled out and now it won't run. It started a couple of times, ran a bit and then cut out.
According to this website: www.manualslib.com/
Here are some cause that can be happening for your Husqvarna RZ46i tractor:
You could have a clogged fuel line.
I have a Husqvarna rider 48 inch. It cuts, runs great, and blades engage just fine when the mower is still. When I try to go forward and put it in gear it wants to stall. It acts like it's losing power when the blades are engaged. However when I disengage the blades it will go forward with no problem. What could this be?
Is the throttle fully opened up?
my husband said yes
I have a Husqvarna YT48DXLS riding lawn mower. It has a 48" cut and a 25 HP Kohler motor. It takes me about an hour to mow my lawn as sometimes, 4-6 times, it just seems like the choke has been pulled out. The mower will lose power and almost die. If I turn off the mower deck and it will usually recover with lots of smoke then run just like normal. I have tried to figure out when it will do it (turning, uphill, down hill), but there seems to be no rhyme or reason when or if it will happen.
My second issue is, I had the dealer put a factory mulch kit on the mower. I have had mulching mowers for 25 years, but never had this issue. When I mow I get covered with grass clippings. It is like they are getting blown out of the right/front part of the deck. My feet and legs will be covered with grass. I am thinking about switching blades to Oregon Gator blades that I have used on other mulching mowers.
Thanks in advance for the help!
For the mulcher issue, I would contact the dealer since there is obviously a defective part.
If you are seeing smoke, something is overheating. You may be burning oil.
My Husqvarna mower shuts down when I turn the blades on. I suspect a faulty safety switch. How can I over-ride the safety switch?
The safety switch is located under the seat. Disconnect it and then reconnect it.
When I started my Husqvarna mower there was smoke coming out of it and it only went for a couple of minutes then died out. I have checked the oil which is fine and the air filter is clean so what could it be?
