I recently purchased a brand new Einhell GC-PM 46 S petrol

Resolved Question:

I recently purchased a brand new Einhell GC-PM 46 S petrol lawnmower, assembled as instructed, fueled and oiled as required, mowed half of a small lawn only for the engine to cut out and now it won't restart. There is still fuel in the tank, any possible solutions would be a great help.
Thankyou.

Does the carburetor have a drain plug on it? Try draining carburetor, it may have water in the fuel bowl.Have you removed the spark plug and check it for spark with it touching the metal threads to the metal of the engine?
