    I was cutting grass and the mower just shut off suddenly while mowing. When I go to start it the engine will turn but not start. Any ideas? 48' z turn ct. I've been using it to cut my lawn and it just suprised me it would just do that. Any ideas welcome.
  2. Well, I guess I'll be the stupid one and ask if there is any liquid in those two big plastic things on either side of the engine, or the one big one under the seat?

    Seriously, it almost has to be a fuel problem if it will still turn over but not run after it just shut off. Check to make sure the valve that you turn to choose which tank you pull from hasn't gotten turned to the "off" position somehow......check that there is fuel in the filter and it's not all dirty. Hard to say. Could even be a clogged jet in the carb. Good luck to you.
