7 hp craftsman Briggs/stratton lawmnower stalls

Engine is hard to start, then stalls unless pump primer bulb. Acts as if starving for fuel. Have removed fuel tank and blown out as well as fuel hose. Removed carb and cleaned. Have noticed a small crack in primer bulb and wondering if this could cause a vacuum problem or fuel psi condition. Thanks in advance for your help.

    A crack in the primer bulb can definitely cause a problem. What is the model and type # on you engine?

Your engine model # 128602 Type 0212-E1. Forget about ordering from Sears and paying shipping and waiting a week. Go to your local Briggs and Stratton dealer (most shops are) and buy part # 694395. Should cost about $3.00

I have a 190 cc 675 series briggs and stratton engine on a craftsman bush trimmer. When I pour gas in the tank, gas immediately leaks outs of the primer bulb. Help please.


This condition indicates that the float and needle in the carburetor are stuck open. The only solution is to disassemble and clean the carburetor. Make sure that there is no fuel in your oil. If so, change the oil, remove the plug, turn engine several times to put oil back to where it needs to be (fuel acts as a thinner), replace plug and you should be ready to start.

The 'primer' doesn't work on my mower's Briggs & Stratton engine. Is there an easy fix?


You can try pumping primer bulb 10-15 times instead of 3 or 4 that manual probably suggests. We have a craftsman 22 inch cut push mower with a 3.5 H.P. BRIGGS &STRATTON engine and if you don't prime it at least a dozen times it will not start. It is possible that you have a small hole in your primer bulb in which case it can't create suction to bring gas to carburator. If this is the problem you can purchase a new bulb and seal at most larger SEARS stores or service centers.I would guess that if you have manual for mower you can get part number and phone number to get new parts .Hope this helps. Thanks

I can't start my powerwasher. Where is the choke?


This Power washer has a 3.75 hp Briggs and Stratton Engine. It does not have a choke but does have a primer bulb. You must depress the primer bulb at least 3 times to start the engine. The primer bulb is on the side of the carb. It can be black or red. If your still unable to locate the primer bulb please provide your ENGINE model number and I will provide you a link to a diagram for the location of the primer bulb.

Thanks for using FixYa.

Where is the check valve in the carburetor on a Briggs & Stratton


I believe you have to remove the primer bulb and it is located behind it. Be careful and do not damage the keeper or the primer bulb there is a couple of notches on keeper to depress to remove,

Briggs and Stratton 20 hp intek runs great idles great but after running for 15 min. it acts like is running out of fuel and dies. it starts back up if you wait a few min.fuel filter new , plugs new air...


Had the same problem with an almost new Craftsman w/ Intek 20.0 HP. Check all the "usual suspects" and had to have a tech come out. He had me start it. It ran for a few minutes and stopped (per usual). He immediately went to the Anti-Backfire solenoid. It is an electrically operated "plunger-style" fuel line blocker. They are famous for going bad. The part is about $65 and its sole purpose is to starve the engine of its fuel supply at shutdown so it won't backfire. If it is disabled, the user must throttle the engine down for 10 seconds or so before turning the key off in order to avoid backfires. Gee... let's see, 10 seconds of my time each time I use the mower vs $65 part ... No contest! Remove the solenoid, take a pair of electrician side cutters and snip off the tip of the plunger and reinstall it. Problem solved ! ! !

A more likely cause is a clogged jet in the carb.

Remove disassemble and clean Carb, the High speed idle jet is clogged.

If you had a fuel pump problem it would not run even in the Choke mode.

This tends to happen when an engine sets for long periods of time with out a fuel inhibitor id is even more likely to happen if you use fuel with ethanol.

Hope this tip helps.

Check the muffler, if the muffler is clogged it could cause overheating of the engine, and could keep the engine from getting the necessary fuel-gas mixture.

I have a 7 year-old craftsman mower with a 22 HP Briggs engine that has the same issue. After about an hour, the mower acts as if it is starving for fuel and then stalls. Then after about 5 minutes of sitting, it will run for a little while longer.
If your engine is similar to mine, then its carb has a fuel shut off solenoid which shuts off fuel to the Main Jet when Voltage is removed to prevent backfiring when the key is shut off.
Unfortunately, this solenoid can also cause the carb to starve for fuel when not working properly. In my case, when I cleaned the solenoid and the solenoid's connections, the tractor had no problem after that.

Hope that helps,

Engine starving for fuel, fuel filter very low, almost empty


your fuel pump is diaghram actuated by pulses from crankcase pressure, if you look there is a small tube that runs from pump to valve cover, pull fuel line off carb and have some one crank it over to see if it's pumping. could be pump or blockage between tank and pump, if fuel flow seems good to carb, i would pull bowl off and check for dirt and also make sure anti run on valve, the thinghy that holds the bowl on to carb is opening properly, it should open and close when you turn key from off to run, beyond that it could be you have some water in your gas.
