If your engine has an adjustment screw on the bottom of the carb. try adjusting that at high idle first also if you have a low idle screw. If that don't clear the surging than you might have to take the carb. off and clean it. If cleaning the carb. out dose not do it you may need to put a new carb. kit in. Any questions feel free to ask.

Craftsman platinum 7.25 runs for 30-40 min then dies won't start again and stay running until it's completely cool. Clean carb replaced spark plug and filter what's next. Bad valve or vaccume leak?


Hi There My name is Larry I am a small engine repair man in Ontario Canada. It seems like you might have a Bad ignition coil.
In general the coil heats up as you use it and with that sometimes the wires in the coil head loose contact and stop producing spark.
Since this is a sealed unit you might have to change the coil.
the only way to be sure is to use it until it stops and then immediately pull the spark plug and look for spark when you pull it over.
Now I am presuming the craftsman has a Tecumseh engine the only way to find out is to contact your local small engine shop with your model and type number and ask for a conversion because sears do not give you the manufacturer with their model.
Hope this helps.
My email is larry_boccioletti@yahoo.ca if you cannot get an answer from your local shop--I would be glad to do it for you.
Good luck

I have an Ariens ST724 7hp snowblower (model:924075 serial 005629) that needs to have the starter cup, recoil, and the 4 bolts that secure the recoil replaced. The problem is all of these parts are NO


In order to order engine you must look-up the engine itself. If this blower still has the original engine then it is a

I have a 10 hs tecumseh motor on a riding mower i need an explode view of carb and linkage when start-up engine it goes wide open


Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly. I understand you have a 10 HP Tecumseh engine. There are service manuals available on line for your engine but without your engine model number it is difficult to pass you the correct one: Here is the link for the service manuals:
http://www.mymowerparts.com/pdf/Tecumseh_Service_and_Repair_Manuals

Somewhere in the list is your manual.
This is my best guess without your engine model number:
http://www.mymowerparts.com/pdf/Tecumseh_Service_and_Repair_Manuals/TECUMSEH_SERVICE%20_REPAIR_MANUAL_OHH50-65_OHHSK50-130_OHV11-OHV17_OVM120_OVRM40-675_OVRM120_OVXLC120_OVXL120_OVXL125_695244A.pdf

^-Make sure you read about Adjustments in section 1 also.

Running wide open causes:
1. Broken throttle control plate spring
2. Governor spring problem
3. Internal Governor flyweight has departed the governor gear.
4. Throttle plate (butterfly) attached to the throttle shaft in the carb throat has come off the throttle shaft.
5. Broken / missing linkage
6. Someone loosened the governor shaft bolt at the base of the governor arm and allowed the governor to get out of adjstment.

Thanks for choosing FixYa,
Kelly

Older Sears rider mower model 6-25 with Tecumseh stalls.


Sounds like you have a wire grounding to the frame somewhere. Check the wires to see if you see any bare spots or frays. www.nnyparts.com

I have an older craftsman GT 18 riding lawnmower that came with a snowblower attachment. Do you know how to attach it?


The snowblower attachment manual is available in the manufacturers' website. If not, go to the Murray website. They manufactured these tractors for Sears. You may find the manual there.

Craftsman GT5000 W/22hp B+S surges and dies when warm


Replace the spark-plug, check the quality of the fuel(gas that is mixed or was stored more then three months is stale and wont fire correctly) make sure the fuel and air filter not clogged. If there is no change then your problem may be more technical, a nest may be restricting the govenor or you missed something with the carb and there still is debre causing it to stall.
