    I just purchased a new 27hp Lazer Z 60 last week, and the engine does not seem to be right. After running it for 10 minutes or so the engine dies only to be restarted using the choke. Also, after the engine has been running for a while it will not idle down without dying. Almost appears like the choke is slightly stuck or something. About to take it back to the dealer but wanted to see if I am missing something simple first.

    By the way, this all started after the fist hour of use, it now has only 4 hours on it. I loved the first cut it made and really hate the down time. Please help!!!

    If it were my machine I'd take it in and have it looked at. It's hard to say but I'd lean toward fuel. It may something as simple as fuel cap with a bad vent or something as significant as a carburetor.

    If it continues to have these same symptoms you may want to switch tanks and see if it persists.
