SOURCE: Craftsman lawn tractor, model 917.270711, smoking and stalling

That is a Briggs & Stratton engine and given its age, I would say it is time to overhaul or replace the carburetor. Over time the float needle and seat become worn and inoperable which is why you are getting fuel in your crankcase. If you are not familiar or comfortable with working on these things, this is a job better left to a professional. There are too many things that can (AND WILL) go wrong in trying to do it yourself. Just scan through some of the questions on here and see how many others have taken theirs apart and can't remember how to put it back correctly!

SOURCE: nothing happens when you turn on the lawn mower

Check your seat, drive safety switches. Can you turn the engine with jumper cables attached to the starter? It won't start, but should turn over, one of your safety switches is not working.

I suggest that you inspect your blades, sounds like you have a damaged or bent blade throwing a blade out of balance, which sets up for excess vibration.

If you have any more questions about this, give me a reply and I will get back to you.

I would suggest the following:

1. Either clean or replace the spark and make certain that the gap is correct;
2. Check the ignition wire for breaks or cranks, if found, replace the ignition wire; and,
3. Add about one (1) oz of carburetor cleaner to a full tank of gas.

Lawn Mower runs rough & dies has black sooty spark plugs

A good place to start would be to remove air cleaner assembly and give it a good wash and service and take a close look at choke assembly/lever to be sure it isn't sticking in on position, while trying to run it with air filter off..

Lawn mover will not start, was flipped over

The clicking noise may be the blade hitting the side of the mower or it was not put on properly. It needs a balance to the aluminum flywheel on top of the engine. The blade adapter and blade provide this balance for the engine to run.
Good Day.

Mower will not start. Makes a loud fast clicking noise when the key is turned.

Loud ticking usually indicates near dead battery, take it out and charge it. If it still ticks you may need to replace it as they are only good for a few years.
