    lawnmower is hard to start and once started doesn't have enough horsepower to cut or sustain  power when i try to push it.

You take the air filter off from carberator (three bolts). There is a bowl with a nut underneath. With socket wrench take bolt off and remove bowl. there are some small holes on the bolt and carberator. Take a twisty tie, like to tie up garbage bags, and run the wire in and out of the small holes. Spray a bit of carb cleaner for good measure.

Put it all back together but don't forget the gasket between the carb and the filter assembly.

Is the engine from Briggs & Stratton or Tecumseh, not the mower...the engine.

With either enging that will only run when primed...in the carb. there is a tube in the middle that draws gas up to the venturi, if this is clogged it will only run when primed try spraying WD-40 in the tube, it should come out in the venturi.

Also, the bolt in the bottom of some engines has a small hole that allows gas into the tube as listed above there is a hole in the top of the bolt and a small one that goes through the bolt they must be clean in order to run

Could be 2 things: a restriction in your fuel line/coming out of the tank, or 2: a dirty carburetor needing to be removed, cleaned and possibly rebuilt and reinstalled. Hope it's one of those.Start with pulling the fuel line loose from the carburetor. If you have fuel flowing freely, plug the hose with a golf tee and move onto removing the carburetor. Carb kits are cheap and easy to install. It's best to rebuild while you have it off to avoid similar problems later.

I have a new 650 sears craftsman self propelled 22" lawnmower that will not start. I have gone through the prime bulb instructions, still no luck.\r\nAny ideas? Walter in Alberta Canada.


could be the priming bulb gasket between the air-filter assy. and the carb.
I have the same lawnmower and if I prime with gas from a can it will start but stop after a few seconds. When I push the bulb I can hear air leaking in this area. You can replace the gasket by removing the back half of the air-filter assembly. I am looking to buy a gasket today I let you know how it works out! Thanks Ron

My lawnmower will not start. If primed many times, it will burn the gas that is primed, then stop. New plug, air filter, gas, and oil.


You need to remove and clean out the carburettor and depending on the type of carb, renew the diaphragm if there is one in it. Stephen.
