Gas coming out of exhaust is it the carburetor and why

Murrays riding mower briggs and stratton

Posted by on

  • Dan Todd May 11, 2010

    If gas runs out of your exhaust does it continue to run out when you turn the key off? It could be a stuck float in the carb bowl. Until you find out I would definitely turn the gas tank valve switch off.

    Does it still start and run? If it does, have you checked it on your finger smelling it to see if it is condensation or gas?

    Has the mower been setting up a long while? If it starts, start it up and turn the gas switch off and let it run all the gas out so it will not drain back down into the crankcase.

    How long has this been happening? We need more info, please.

    Is this happening while it is sitting still and is there gas in your oil?

What do you mean what kind of carb? If you are needing parts for it you would order them based on the engine on the mower ex. Briggs and Stratton Intek 17.5 hp or kohler courage 22hp.

Murray lawn mower model number m20300 trying to locate carberator


Murray M20300 is produce by Husqvarna (HOP) group. Its product number should be 96114002702. It uses a Briggs and Stratton engine model number 9T602-5019-B1.

The carburetor PN is 795475 which include the 795083 diaphragm and gasket. This diaphragm and gasket is most problem found when the carburetor fails to operate. Considering the cost of the carburetor kit it is just cost effective to purchase the whole carburetor replacement kit.

You can purchase from online vendors that sells Briggs and Stratton parts or purchase local from a local shop that deals with Briggs and Stratton engines.

I can't find any thing on my my riding mower


This machine was made by Murray who is no longer in business. Briggs and Stratton purchased a majority of the company and a lot of the parts can still be purchased through Briggs. I do not see a parts diagram for the (b) series but I was able to find one for an (a) which is a year older machine. I have included a link for the parts diagram of it.

I can crank my murray gas lawn mower 6.5 quantum


Sounds like you will need to clean your carburetor.
Sometimes you can get by with priming it a few times, and letting it
run a few times like that and it will flush the gunk out of the jets,
but most of the time you will need to rebuild the carburetor.
If the mower is over a couple years old, then I also recommend that you
buy and install a new carburetor repair kit, because the diaphragm will
get hard and that will cause it to be hard to crank.
When you clean your carburetor and remove the jet screws, count the
number of turns it takes to seat the jets from their original position.
That way when you go to put the jets back in, you know how many turns
they were in/out.
Please rate me, Thanks
Good Luck, I hope this helped

Murray riding mower 12.5 hp briggs & stratton spitting oil & gas out of carb & muffler when trying to start


Drain oil... it is full of gasoline due to a bad float pin and rubber gromet in your carb. When your float pin and gromet fail, gas just keeps flowing into your carburetor, eventually flooding your motor with gas and oil mix.
