SOURCE: tecumseh 9hp craftsman snowblower will not stay running

First take the carb off of the engine and then remove the bowl, carefully take the float off paying special attention to the needle and how it is attached to the float. Next, lightly blow air into the fuel inlet while holding your finger over the spot where the needle goes in. Use a bread tie with the paper scraped off. Stick the wire through the pick up tube at the bottom of the carb. Find any other holes and probe those holes with the wire. Then thoroughly wash the entire carb with carb cleaner then blow the whole carb off. Then put the float and needle back in making sure that when putting the bowl back on that it seats tightly all the way around the rubber gasket. Also, just before you put the bowl on turn the carb upside down to see if the float is sitting level. If it is put the bowl on, If not then the spot where the needle sits on the float has to be bent one way or the other just a little until the float sits level. After the bowl is put in place, the nut that holds the bowl on the threaded area should have two possibly three holes plus the hole down the center, probe all holes with the wire. put everything back on the motor and try again. If it still won't run then you will need a carb kit.

SOURCE: I have got a Craftsman model 917.270821 19.5 electric start 42" mower and cant get it to start I have replaced the starter and had the battery checked and all is good there, but dont seem to be gettin

check the wires from the back of the ignition and also the small wire that connects to the starter, if you get a 12v test light check each wire individually by holding the test light on the wire and have somebody turn the key, the test light should come on if the power is going through the wire.
If there is no power the ignition may need replacing

pull the flywheel and check if the key(latter models the flywheel itself will need replaced if stripped)is damaged. This is a possibility.

SOURCE: craftsman riding lawnmower shuts off after 15 - 20 mins.

I have a Troy-Bilt push mower that does the same.

Try this - Run the mower until the point of quitting. Keep the hood up and be ready to remove the gas cap. As soon as you feel it start to stutter like it's going to quit, unscrew the gas cap and see if it comes back to life and doesn't quit.

If that works, then what is happening is that the gas in the carburetor bowl is getting depleted faster than the tank can provide it, possibly because of a clogged vent that's supposed to allow air back into the gas tank as gas is used.

You can try running with the gas cap not quite tight, to let some air seep in that way, but that's more prone to sloshing leaks. You could also try drilling a hole in the gas cap - about 3/16" is plenty, and stuffing a piece of natural sponge in to keep the gas in and dirt out. Synthetic sponge will deteriorate in gas.

Craftsman electric start snowblower wont start


That's refreshing! You've already done a lot of the work!
First, try regapping it at about .040, see if it starts there. If not, check compression.

Does it generate any spark at all? Try it with a screwdriver instead of the spark plug. If none, track back to the magneto - also check any shutoff wiring at the magneto.

Um... you DID put fresh gas INTO it, right? 8) If you take the bowl off temporarily, does gasoline drain freely from the bottom of the carburetor?

Craftsman Snowblower Won't Start


If you did not put gas stabilizer in your fuel tank when you stored your machine the gas will turn into varnish. Try draining the gas and put new gas and try to start it. Good luck

Craftsman snowblower will not start


Dump out the old gas and put in new.Try a spray of starting fluid into the carb. If it will not fire on the starting fluid there is somthing wrong in the ignition system. Pull out the spark plug and clean it with a wire brush. If it still won't fire the points and condensor need to be replaced.

Craftsman snowblower will not kick over


Old gas? Did you pull out the spark plug and see if you have a spark? If the gas is old, drain the tank and line to the carburator, then put in fresh gas. Never put it up for the summer with gas in it. Run it until the engines runs out of fuel, then put it away.

If there's no spark, then you have a coil issue.

I have a 24in snowblower with electric start a year old and cant start it manually or electric


Did you drain last years fuel out completely? That is usually the problem with small engines. Gasoloine has a shelf life of thirty days and then it starts to turn to varnish. When that happens everythinh in the fuel system gets coated. The carb will not work if it did start. If you did clean and blow out fuel before storage then check for spark. Pull the spark plug and keep it connected to the cable then fasten it somehow to the engine block (Vise-grips). Crank the motor and you should see spark on the plug. All this assuming your battery is good. Did it sit all summer in the heat? Have it checked for cranking amps and voltage. No spark means no ignition system. Spark but no start is fuel system but battery must be 100% before anything else.

Sounds like you coil is over heating after running a few minutes. The windings are seperating, then when it sools they make contact again. Try replacing the coil.
