Re: XT2 stalling under load
Mower has been at the dealer for a week. Stopped by today to get an update, dealer says he can't find anything wrong with it. He replaced the choke because I had told him of my sister having that be the problem on hers, but he said he didn't think that was the problem, said the one he took off looked fine. No dirt or debris in carb. He let me go a couple a passes with it behind the shop in some high grass, and no problems. Said he ran it for a good 15 minutes or so before changing the choke and checking carb and it didn't miss a beat. He put a new fuel filter and a new air filter on it. Says he is going to try to run it a good 20-30 minutes tomorrow and see if it acts up. If not, he will bring it back tomorrow or Friday.
I asked him about it possibly being fuel solenoid shut-off or a safety switch, he said no, it would completely stop running if it was. He said it possibly could be a coil, but usually if it is it, once it starts acting up, it will continue to. Said it is hard to diagnose when it is running fine and he can't see what it is actually doing.
With my luck, as soon as I get it back, it will start doing the same thing the first time i cut. Probably will run fine until next summer when the warranty runs out.
