Remote possibility the spark plug needs to be replaced. But it sounds more likely that the fuel system is the problem. Is the gas relatively fresh? The Carburetor may have gunk/dirt build up. Some will say not to use carburetor cleaner in these engines, but I have been cleaning out my small engine equipment when needed for many years. At times I've had to replace the gas in the tank first because it was too stale. Then with fresh gas, I put about 1/4 of can of carb cleaner in with the gas and run the engine. It may take awhile for the system to clean, so you have to just keep starting the engine and let it run for as long as it will, and try to take off the chock as it's running....

My snowblower will not start. Brand new just out of the box.. craftsman model 247.881730


Do you choke it? They also have a primer bulb do you use it.

There should be a screw on the carb to adjust the gas flow. If it appears no gas is getting to the spark plug open that screw up a little at a time.

Turn left to open and right if too much gas is choking it to death.

If that does not work take the spark plug out and put a Tablespoon of gas in the spark plug hole and put the plug and plug wire back in place and try that. If it runs and stalls after 10 or 15 seconds then your carb needs attention.Like maybe the float could be stuck.

Mower will run then starts running bad turn the choke off and it stalls stalls after i choke it also blows gas out of the top of the carburator how do i adjust the vaalvesType your problem for a solut


Using the choke as you did,mentioned in your problem,you have flooded the carburetor. DO NOT USE THE CHOKE,ONCE THE TRACTOR IS RUNNING. Choke is used to start the motor only. When you run with the choke on,the motor gets to much gas and the plug(s) get fowled up and gas comes out of the carburetor. Remember the motor is hot,when gas comes out of the carburetor,the amount of over flow (flooding),could cause a FIRE. Lay off the choke,clean the spark plug(s),they will most likely be fowled up. The filter will be soaked with gas,remove the filter,soak up the gas,using a handy wipe,let filter dry out. Once dry replace filter. You should be good to go. Remember,do not over choke,use when starting a cold motor,usually when motor is hot from running,you may not have to use the choke at all. Hope this helps. Sincerely,Brad Locke

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.

Craftsman 32cc Trimmer Runs with choke at idle, then stalls


Sounds like somewhere you have a air leak. Most likely it's somewhere near the carburetor intake or maybe the carb itself. Could be a line from the primer if it has one and i do believe it should that could be leaking or loose. Good luck.
