Crafsman Eager 1 6.75 HP lawnmower wont start

A friend gave me an old craftsman lawnmower-Craftsman Eager 1 6.75 hp and I do not have the manual for it. Is there anyone who can help me with how to start this mower? I pull the cord, hold down the speed cable and nothing happens-Is there an on/off switch here?
Please e-mail me at b.dussich@comcast.net -Thanks!

    Mrfixit-jerr-

    Your answer was EXACTLY on the mark!! I actually did the things you mentioned and it started right up.One thing I learned as a kid working on mpowsers that won't start was to remove the sparkplug clean it, sand paper (slightly) the electrodes, and put a SMALL tinblesize amount of gasoline into the cylinder. Once I did that, after putting in a new airfilter(totally clogged up!) and used a new plug, it started right up.! I will definitely use this site again!! THANKS! Bob

    My Eager 1 Craftsman Techusma 6.75hp engine 22" mower will not start. Model year 2001 I think. I have changed the oil, spark plug, air filter, cleaned the carb, changed the blade and primed the thing plenty and even used carb cleaner but this bastard still wont turn over. I have the same problem with another craftsman 21" mulching mower with a B&S engine. THe B&S one at least sputters and makes an attempt but will not get up to speed. I gather it is probably the carb on both of these junk piles. The B&S one is only 2 years old.

I have an Eager 1, as well and when I try to pull the cord it does not turn at all. It's stuck. I hit a tree root and since then I have had problems with it. I have 2 mowers so it was not used last year at all. Gas was drained and it was stored in a shed. Anyway, I know nothng about mowers other than spark plugs, gas, oil, sharp blades and filters. Is the motor seized? Thanks

    all you have to do is take out the spark plug........then give it a few pull this will release the vacum lock from the engine

I've got a Sears Eagle-1 6.75hp mower that wont start. It will start up if I pump the primer but it will not stay running. I've do need to change the filter, it was dirty and had caked on dirt in it. I cleaned it and it is flowing air. I tried starting the lawn mower with the filter of and it does the same thing. Could I have dirt in the fuel line to the carb? If so, how do I get it out?

Thanks,

Michael it sounds like there may be a blokage on you air filter. Check it and clean it then make sure there is not too much oil in the mower.

Craftsman eager-1 lawnmower will not start


Hi, The first thing I always check for is fresh fuel (less than a couple of months old) old unleaded may well be fine in your car but low compression engines fitted to garden equipment need fresh fuel. next thing to check is that the choke flap is closing fully, dont rely on the position of the control lever, remove the airfilter cover and see that the flap is fully closed, if it's cracked open just a little bit it will stop engine starting ( unless the filter is really dirty) another thing to check is that the blade is tightly secured, on direct drive mowers the blade acts as a flywheel. did you hit an obstruction the last time you used it, if you did you may have sheared the flywheel key(poor spark on points ignition or good spark but timing out of sync on electronic ignition. hope this helps, regards Tony (England UK)
