lawnmower stalls out

Someone {not me} added too much oil to my 21" MTD mower. I changed oil and added proper amount. it runs about 3 mins then quits. it will restart then quit immeadiately. I tilted mower to drain oil from combustion chamber. this helped a little.

Check that the air filter is not saturated with oil. Have a good one. Geo

What engine do you have on it ?? Briggs ??

What HP is it ?? That info will clear up a few things for me.

Some people on here will say Model, type and code. It is helpful with that info.
