My lawn mower starts, but then it stops after about 10 seconds. What could the problem be?

When I pull the cord to start my push lawn mower, it starts but it stops running/shuts down after about 5 - 10 seconds.

This is usually a problem with old or bad gas. Be sure the gas you are using is no more than 5 weeks old.

If you are using fresh gas, the carburetor is stopped up. Clean or replace the carburetor.
