Open Question

My briggs and straton mod 917.376460 will not start

I changed the oil, filter, spark plug, cleaned the carb, made sure fuel line is clear, new gas and mower still won't start. I can put a little directly into the carb and it runs for a few seconds. What can it be?

SOURCE: mower will not start

Sounds like you will need to clean your carburetor.
Sometimes you can get by with priming it a few times, and letting it
run a few times like that and it will flush the gunk out of the jets,
but most of the time you will need to rebuild the carburetor.
If the mower is over a couple years old, then I also recommend that you
buy and install a new carburetor repair kit, because the diaphragm will
get hard and that will cause it to be hard to crank.
When you clean your carburetor and remove the jet screws, count the
number of turns it takes to seat the jets from their original position.
That way when you go to put the jets back in, you know how many turns
they were in/out.
Please do not forget to rate me, Thanks
Good Luck, I hope this helped

SOURCE: Briggs and Stratton 6.5 hp won't start- not sure

Took carb. off and cleaned and put new kit in. Carb. is self choking. Put new primer bulb in. Will run with starting fluid then stop. Not getting any gas. Could carb. be clogged. I soaked it in carb. cleaner and blew out. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Hello,
My name is Dane and I am going to try to help you solve your problem.

I believe that you have clogged jets/passages inside of your carburetor. This can happen when an engine gets little use, allowing the fuel in the system to get old and begin breaking down. If fuel is left in a Carb for more than a year, it can eventually turn into a jelly like consistency, and clog the fuel system. What I believe is happening in your case is that the float needle inside the Carb is not allowing gas to enter the carb fast enough to keep up with demand. That's why it will run for 10 minutes and then shut down. After it sits for a while, the float bowl slowly fills back up and it will run for 10 more minutes.

Now for the bad news. This is an extremely difficult carb to work on. It is all I can do to get these Carbs off an engine and back on again to clean them. They are tough because you have a big air filter housing and 2 long bolts with gaskets and then the carb itself and spacers, that you have to hold together as a unit and start the bolts holding the carb to the engine. If you are a good enough mechanic to do this, you will already know how to do it. If not, I honestly suggest you take it to a shop and let them clean it for you. A new Carb isn't all that expensive, so you may want to consider just letting them replace it instead of cleaning.

I hope I've helped. If you found this information useful, please leave feedback as deserved. Thank you! Dane

Check the governer, its a lever that pulls the throttle plate from the engine side. Try manually overriding it (twist it open as the engine's running) and see if that does it.

Gas in the spark plug chamber should mean it is flooded.trying to start it for too much time with the choke on will do this.when starting cold,engage choke.turn engine over till it tries to start.if you can't disengage the choke before it stalls,do not re-engage the choke.just keep turning the engine over,or pull starting,whichever you have,until the unit starts.it will.for now,if the sp.plg.hole has fuel in it,blast compressed air to clear it somewhat,re-install sp.plug,never overtightening,just snug,and try starting without the choke.hope this is useful.bart.i am a certified small engine mech.and remember when finished,let unit idle for 2 min. Or so and cool before shutting off.change oil religously every 50hrs.for units over 10hp.,every 25 hours for engines below that.they will last a long time.clean air filter after every two or three uses.never empty fuel when storing,use STA-BIL.

We have a 6.25 /Briggs & Straton we have cleaned


You should have two fuel lines going from the carb to the tank, one has a filter,

make sure both lines are good without any breaks or cracks. if the filter is dirty

you may need to replace it. you can fish it out of the gas tank by making a hook

on a wired coat hanger, try to remove the filter and put the line back in the tank

make sure they are both submerged, if it runs just replace the filter, good luck!

You may have to replace the carb.But before you do.Check the the fuel line.There is a small screen in the carb,it may be clogged.Inside the tank is a small cylindrical filter,make sure it is good.Break the fuel line at the in line filter,to make sure gas is getting to there,if it is the problem is in the carb.

I overfilled engine oil in my Briggs Straton engine on my snow thower ... now can't get it started .... can oil foul the spark plug ?


Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly. Depending on just how much you over-filled it yes it will fowl the spark plug. Most of the time though a small engine failing to start is either fuel or ignition related. Remove the spark plug and check for ign. spark and OIL in the cylinder by pulling the recoil through. Reinstall the spark plug (Just a note about an oil fouled spark plug.... if you clean it with fuel you must make sure that it is dry or it will not work. Spark plugs are cheap I recommend you buy a new one.
Try removing the air filter and adding just a small splash of gas into the carb. throat. then see if it tries to start. If it does but does not run you have a fuel supply problem. This is caused by debris in the carb bowl and fuel orifice jet. You will need to clean out the bottom of the carb and the orifice. Possibly there is debris in the fuel tank outlet, the fuel filter or fuel bowl below the fuel selector depending on your engine model. .I can help you with carb / fuel system cleaning procedures but would like a "complete" ENGINE model - type - and serial number so I can pass you the procedures applicable to YOUR engine.

Thanks for choosing FixYa,
Kelly

Lawn mower will not start


check gas tank with light is there dirt in tank? did you change fuel filter? is there spark at the spark plug? try a 2 second spurt of starting fluid in carburetor and crank does it fire?if it does then you most likely need to clean carburetor with carburetor cleaning spray, flush fuel lines with spray and swap fuel filter.

Gas in oil 12.5 hp briggs and straton will not start


the float in the carb is stuck open, its flooding with gas. the gasoline is going past the rings and/or valves into the crankcase. you need to remove the float bowl and unstick and reset the float to specs, maybe a new seat and needle and change the oil before restarting.
