I bought a new push mower this spring and it has worked wonderfully since I bought it. Yesterday I was mowing the the lawn and it just stopped. I had just started mowing, I had made 5 passes or so and the thing just stopped. It has plenty of gas, new oil, nothing is tied up on the blades, spark plug wire is secure. I try pulling it to restart it and nothing. I don't get what went wrong. One thing I did notice though, is that the air filter was soaked in gas and when I took it out, part of the rubber ripped. THe air filter will need to be replaced. But even trying to start it with the air filter off, still nothing.
Here is some info about the mower.
Craftsman Model no: 917.47904
Engine says Kohler Courage XT-6 OHV 6.25
I really want to get this thing mowing again.
