Question about Garden

1 Answer

I have a Craftsman snow thrower. Was running fine then the engine seems to be running erratically. The only time it runs smooth is when the choke is on full or half way. I put new gas in it but it still runs funny.

SOURCE: Craftmans Snow Thrower 247887001 Tire Flat. How to Refill.

The tires are probably tubeless type. If the bead is broken ( not sealed to the rim) the tire will not inflate. Taking the weight off the tire will some times allow the bead to seal against the rim and allow tire to be inflated. You can also put a small ratchet strap around the tread of the tire and tighten it up. This will squash the tire and make the bead seal up. MAKE SURE to loosen strap as soon as bead seals and tire begins to inflate. Hope this helps.

I have a 26 in craftsman snow thrower brand new engine runs erratically hunting


The choke does not have to be all the way open on a snow blower engine. The choke control has notches or steps for that reason. With the engine running adjust the choke one notch at a time until it smooths out. Once the engine warms up you may have to adjust the choke a notch or two to keep it running smoothly.

Hello I have a craftsman 123cc single stage 4 cycle snow thrower. . Motor runs great with a little choke. When I put choke off it runs high and low. The spring linkages are moving back and forth


pull the carby and clean out the jets and passages
the carby cannot produce a constant air/f;ow mixture unless the choke is on and the governor is having difficulty keeping the engine speed constant

I have a Craftsman Snow Thrower model # 247.881731. At the end of last year I drained the gas as recommended in the manual, this year I filled it with fresh gas and it now has a problem starting. I pu


Draining the gas from the tank doesn't drain the float bowl in the carburetor. It still had last year's gas in it. Gas will start to turn to varnish if left sitting 6 to 12 months. You'll probably have to remove the carburetor, disassemble it and clean it out with Gumout carb cleaner or some similar product.
When you get it running and the snow's over and done with, put some Stabil in the gas tank to prevent the gas from converting to varnish and then start it up and run it until that stabilized gas is through the carburetor and into the engine. You can leave it with the treated gas in the tank.

My craftsman snow thrower runs for about15 minutes before it requires more chock until it finally cannot run. Why is this happening


First i would check engine compression. It will change once it gets hot and cause you to use more choke until finaly it wont run.and if that is okay i would rebuild the carburator. A rule i use in my shop is to always check compression first then go from there.
