96 lawnboy

I have a '96 lawn boy 2-stroke mower that is hard to start and when it does, it will run for a few seconds then shuts off. Does anyone know what causes this to happen?

Sounds like your not getting enough fuel, try a squirt of carb cleaner or starting fluid into carb.
What model is your LB?

Okay
If it starts up easily using above method then you may have to clean the carb. Several youtube videos on your model carb, disassembly and cleaning.
Also not a bad idea to replace spark plug if you haven't already.

I had the same issue with that age Lawnboy and it turned out to be the ignition module.
