I have a murray push mower with 5 H.P. briggs & stratton

This answer was rated:

I have a murray push mower with 5 H.P. briggs & stratton engine. It didn't start so a technician replaced the spark plug and air filter and I mowed with it for an hour, then took a break. When I tried to restart it, it ran for a minute, then quit. I tried several times to restart it, but it only ran for a few seconds. I think it now only runs on the primer fuel. Bob

Try draining the fule bowl n the carburetor, it may have water in the bowl!

Did you find problem, I never got a reply.??
