SOURCE: I have a green Craftsman

Hi,

You're pretty close when it's backfiring. However, since there's no timing, the problem could be that you need a new spark plug. Also, a valve could be sticking. A little STP in the gas would help that.

Also, found a tip on www.doityourself.com forum: http://www.doityourself.com/forum/outdoor-gasoline-power-equipment-small-engines/280686-craftsman-riding-mower-starting-problems.html

One of the guys found he had a loose wire on the anti-backfire solenoid.

If the repair shop said it just needed a tuneup, I suspect the spark plug, clean filter, or maybe a clogged fuel line would be your problem.

I hope this helps. If it does, I'd appreciate a 4 thumbs up. Thanks,

Handie Andie

Need manual craftsman 917257550


I don't see this manual available for free online. However, Sears Parts Direct has the manual as part 140952 for less than $5. See http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/part-number/craftsman-parts/riding-mower-tractor-parts/140952/0071/917/Model-917257550/0247/1509200?keySuffixId=NA&pathTaken=partSearch&pathRender=modelComponent&documentCompId=10032978&diagramPageId=00003&productTypeId=x&searchModelNumber=917257550&subCompDesc=Drive&brandDesc=CRAFTSMAN&modelDesc=IMPROVED-ROCKER-ARM-AND-PIVOT-LAWN-TRACTORS&blt=11&shdMod= to order a copy. There is a second manual, part 140953, that isn't available from the Sears Parts Direct site. It may be available by special order by contacting Customer Service and telling the agent that a "research request" is needed. Provide the model and serial number of the tractor.

I hope this helps.

Hit rock and stopped mower. The blade isn't bent or loose but the mower will not start. It turns over seems to almost catch but not quite


If it hits somthing hard enough it will shear the flywheel key, which will knock the ignition timing out, to replace the key you will have to remove the flywheel, there are special pullers to aid removal of the flywheel, these can be purchased from your local Briggs dealer.

I have a craftsman Air-cooled, 2-cycle mini tiller.


first make sure the motor isn't engaged when trying to start it, and If it has been sitting for awhile, (in between seasons), It's likely that the carb is clogged, try cleaning it out, make sure the spark plug is firing correctly. And if it's getting spark, and its getting fuel, but still wont start, then the carb may need adjusting.
