Cub Cadet

Runs fine when weather is 70-75 degrees when hotter runs about 45 min. then starts spuddering sometimes pulling out choke cures the problem and disengaging blade otherwise it dies and wouldn’t start until cools what could be problem?
Experienced gardeners share their insights in answering this question :
To be quite honest it sounds more like a fire issue than fuel. More times than not when a coil starts going bad the hotter it gets the weaker it gets and sometimes stops firing at all until cooling down, occasionally a plug will do this aswell, but I think your coil is going out.

How to Identify and Fix Common Gardening Problems ?

We provide a variety of viewpoints on how to identify and fix common gardening problems. Our sources include academic articles, blog posts, and personal essays from experienced gardeners :

A clogged carburetor is most commonly caused by leaving fuel in the lawn mower for a long period of time. Over time, some of the ingredients in the fuel may evaporate, leaving behind a thicker, stickier substance. This sticky fuel can clog up the carburetor and cause the engine to stall.
All air-cooled small engines have cooling fins manufactured right into the engine`s cylinder head and short block. These fins help to dissipate the heat from the engine. If the fins get clogged with dead grass, leaves, or other debris, they won`t allow the engine to cool properly, and the engine will overheat.
Loose, Dirty or Disconnected Spark Plug in Your Lawn Mower: Check it out, clean off debris, re-connect and tighten. Dirty Air Filter: Clean or replace. Fuel Not Reaching the Engine: Tap the side of the carburetor to help the flow of gas. If this doesn`t work, you might need a new fuel filter.
A Dirty Carburetor Can Cause a Lawnmower To Start Then Die

By far, the most common issue that causes a stalled motor is a dirty carburetor. The carburetor on your engine is the thing that draws in air and mixes it with the fuel. Contrary to what the movies might make you think, gasoline itself is not very flammable.

Other things that could cause this issue are bad fuel, weak/colapsed/kinked fuel line, faulty spark plug, faulty ignition/coil, oil over full, clogged air filter, plugged/dirty carburetor, worn engine parts internal rings/valves/etc.
Bad gas, clogged fuel filter or gummed up carb. I`d suggest changing the gas, inspect or replace fuel filter and using either additive in the fuel or gumout into the carb, try to get that cleaned up some. While looking at the fuel system, also check the fuel lines for any cracks or rot that may be letting air get in.
If your lawnmower starts up but then dies in the middle of mowing your lawn, you could have a bad spark plug. The spark plug works with the ignition coil to create a timed spark in the cylinder, causing combustion. The spark plug is really a very simple device.
If your lawn mower starts, runs briefly, then dies these are the four most common reasons that`s happening: Dirty carburetor / clogged carburetor bowl. Old gasoline that has gone bad. Dirty or defective spark plugs.

If the engine dies when the blades engage, it could be the result of a damaged safety switch. The first step in assessing the safety switch is to make sure it is plugged in securely. The switch is located underneath the seat, and you may have to remove the seat to reach it.

I get about half way through mowing my yard and it acts like its running out of gas, i changed everything but the kitchen sink no luck!
ANSWER : Try removing the air cleaner and run the mower rpm up high then close of the air intake hole with your hand it will stall start back up repaeat this will usually **** out any blockage in the carb. If this doesn’t work remove the float bowl and empty the contents, clean, replace. If this mower doesn’t have a float bowl (carb and float intergrated type) remove the gas take along with the carb and disassemble the carb from the gas tank and clean out the small chamber in tank and spray all parts with carb cleaner then blow out with compressed air reassemble and start.
