    Whenever I turn the key off on my mower, it used to turn immediatly off... Now when I turn the key off, it idles still for a sec and then shuts down?? what's out of adjustment? Help me please.

    It sounds like the main kill wire is off or broken and the engine is being shut down by the fuel cut-off solenoid on the bowl of the carb., But without any information as to what brand and type mower or brand and type engine all that can be done is guessing as I did.
