Question about Briggs Garden

Replaced stop switch and it still won't shut off!

Engine numbers: 10H902, 0113, E1, 05091255.

This engine is on an older Craftsman powerwasher.

Replaced the magneto and everything was fine. Then after about a week it wouldn't shut off. The stop switch that was in it wouldn't shut it off and the new stop switch won't shut it off either. What am I missing?

HELP!!!!

While attending college, I worked at a tool rental center and learned many tips and tricks from the mechanics. The problem that we heard the most from customers was that the machine would not start. Your your machine at least starts and runs fine, however will not shut down with the factory kill switch. Many times when replacing the mag. (spark coil) the kill wire would rub against the flywheel and break or over time the conductor wire will break inside the insulation. If you kill switch only has one wire, then all the kill switch does is short the mag to ground. Simple test is to remove spark plug, re-connect wire to plug, touch plug to engine and pull rope to observe spark, then short the tab on the magnito to ground, should be no spark. If you still have spark, coil is defective however good enough to run engine. Kill with choke or pull wire. If no spark with test, make new wire from tab of coil to kill switch or any switch that will short tab to ground. Good Luck

Briggs and stratton won't start


Without the model number of the mower and from the new engine it going to be a guess. As normally need to look over the electrical setups.

But there will be a need change some of the wiring. First make sure you are not applying 12V to the ignition coil. If you do you will destroy it. It is be grounded only to kill the spark. The wire going to carburetor does need 12v when starting and running the engine. It is an anti-backfire device which shuts off the fuel to the main nozzle.

My dls 3500 mower will not start at all, I charged the battery but the engine wont even turn. All the wiring and fuses seem to be ok


I had the same problem. I replaced the wiring harness for a short fix, corrosion in the terminals that connect to ignition switch. This worked for a while. Then replaced ignition switch this also worked for short time. Now I just open the hood to reach behind the ignition switch and wiggle wires while turning key to start until it starts keep wiggling to get good contact. If it won't stop after it starts, wiggle wires after you turn the key to off. It will stop.

You should check the seat safety switch,it may have stuck or is unplugged or it needs to be replaced.Any other safety switch that is unplugged or defective would keep it from starting.

Craftsman riding mower model 917.273756. when


Sounds like one of your safeties are bad. Probably the seat switch (operator presence switch) under the seat. Pull the seat up and look at your switch. If you have meter then check for continuity when the switch is made.
Report back.

Replaced stop switch and still won't shut off.


Hi

When lever is turned to stop position look under the levers" support and see if there is established a conection with the wire from the coil wich kills the running engine.Also check the conductivity of that wire.
