Is this the one you hit with a hammer? if so check to see if the firing pin is hitting the shell rim at all, if it is sometimes you just have to hit it harder, and make sure your holding the shell in position with down pressure on the handle. if it is the gun model then make sure that the safety lever is is reaching the trip mechanism when you are holding it down making ready to fire.

17.5 hp briggs and stratton mower - mowing fine - stopped to gas up - will not start back up - back fires a few times while turning motor over

sounds like you may have a broken valve spring. Do a compression test as you crank it. If the valve spring is broken, you will get nearly zero compression, it will turn over very easily and this would explain a couple of backfires.

I have a shell stuck in my Remington Power Actuated Tool Model 476. How do I get it out? Thanks!

Is it a spent shell? If so, try gently and carefully prying it out with the tip of a pocket knife.

All of a sudden started backfiring. What could be the cause?

A Back-fire or backfire is an explosion produced by a running internal combustion engine that occurs in the air intake or exhaust system rather than inside the combustion chamber.

In engines with a carburetor, this is often caused by the carburetor being gummed up from unused fuel. Many people don't know that new gas with ethanol can't sit unused for months without going bad. If you look in a tank of gas that has been sitting a while, there will be puddles of gunk on the surface. That gunk really clogs up carburetors, making the engine not run properly.

Usually this can be fixed by dumping all the gas, taking off the carb, and cleaning it out. Or you can take it to a small engine shop if you aren't good with tools. For all small engine tools (lawn mowers, tillers, etc) you need to let the gas run out before storing them if they will sit unused for more than a few weeks, or you will have to clean the carb again.

Hope this info helps!

It appears that the 22 shell has become lodged in the barrel.

I'm assuming you are using something like a powder actuated nailing gun. If so the tool should come apart for just this reason. Do not try to mechanically force the spent shell from the barrel. You can damage the inside of the barrel. If you have the manual or know the brand name and model number you should be able to find a manual online that will tell you how to dismantle the tool.

I have a shell stuck in the gun and can't get it out!

if it is exploded run a rod through the gun when you break it apart. if it is unexploded be careful - it's probably a rim fire cartridge. use plenty of penetrating oil.
