SOURCE: craftsman eager-1 lawnmower will not start

Hi, The first thing I always check for is fresh fuel (less than a couple of months old) old unleaded may well be fine in your car but low compression engines fitted to garden equipment need fresh fuel. next thing to check is that the choke flap is closing fully, dont rely on the position of the control lever, remove the airfilter cover and see that the flap is fully closed, if it's cracked open just a little bit it will stop engine starting ( unless the filter is really dirty) another thing to check is that the blade is tightly secured, on direct drive mowers the blade acts as a flywheel. did you hit an obstruction the last time you used it, if you did you may have sheared the flywheel key(poor spark on points ignition or good spark but timing out of sync on electronic ignition. hope this helps, regards Tony (England UK)

Almost all drain plugs are under the deck. Some are a 4 sided nut sticking out and some are an inner plug (looks like an allen shape plug)

What type of oil do I use on my craftsman 550 push

Use a detergent type oil, with an A.P.I. service classification of SG-SL. I'm thinking you will be operating the mower above 32 degrees F so use a 10W30 weight of oil. Hope this helps. Mike

I have a push lawn mower (Cratsman 550 series Silver Edition), but I dont know how to change the oil on it. Could you help me with this.Thank you

There are a couple of ways. One, if you can elevate the mower, is to loosen the plug underneath the engine. It takes a 3/8" square drive, like for a socket. Loosen and drain to a catch. I don't do this, everyone I tried was too stuck to risk putting extra force one, but yours may be a lot newer. The one I use on a regular basis is to run out the fuel, or empty the fuel and then I remove the oil dipstick and I turn the mower on its side to drain into a catch. This is the one I have found to be the easiest for me. If you do not want to do that, I was at BigLots last weekend and they had a pump that would have worked for that back by the automotive section. You could look at an auto parts store or some other store for such a pump with tubing, this would mean not having to tip it at all.

I hope this is helpful for you.

Brand new 550! push red pump button 3-4 times... pull handle..mower starts up then dies. Will not continue to run..

Sounds like wet fuel! The priming puts enough gas in to start it but the running circuit does not.

Check your gas can for a layer of water on the bottom of it. If it has a lot of water in it you should dispose of this fuel at a gas station that collects used oil and gas. Drain the mower and take that gas away too.

Put in fresh gas from a known clean and dry source.

Let me know what you find ok?

Good luck and be careful!
