SOURCE: mower won't stay running

carb is gummed up. carb cleaner is the only thing that will help, Get it at walmart, spray can usually less than $3. Comes with a wand (straw) for spraying in small holes etc. Take the air filter off and look for small holes around inside the carb intake, stick the straw right in those and shoot, WEAR goggles or classes and rubber gloves, stuff is nasty. If it still won't run you will need to do some disassemble of the carb, if it has a bowl remove it and wash everything out with the cleaner.DO NOT however get the carb cleaner on the bowls top rubber ring it will wreck it. Be careful to put the float and needle and seat back as they were. The brass screw that holds the bowl on has some tiny cross holes in it, one strand from a wire brush works great for cleaning them out. Good Luck, Chuck

SOURCE: Mower smoking and sputtering.

Sounds like the engine is getting flooded because the carburetor float needle is not seating. Let me know if this helps.donnyb60

SOURCE: craftsman eager-1 3.75 mower will not stay running

Most of the starts but dies problems are caused by dirt/water/debris in the carburetor float bowl.

You can try draining the gas out of the carburetor float bowl by removing the float bowl nut located on the bottom of the carburetor.
Make sure the hole in the float bowl nut are clean. If the problem persists after draining the float bowl nut you will have to remove, dis-assemble and clean the carb with compressed air and carb cleaner.

SOURCE: my lawn mower starts, but won't stay running.

After you check airflow (i.e. cleaning up the air filter), check fuel flow.

I'm assuming the gas is clean and fresh.

Is the gas flowing from the tank?
Is the gas getting into the carb?

If yes, then the next step is to remove the carb.
Check the diaphram between the carb and the tank, this acts as your fuel pump. Is this diaphram in good condition? If not replace it.

While the carb is removed, clean all the little ports (jets) into the carb with WD-40 or carb spray-on carb/choke cleaner (automotive section of your local auto store). Blow it dry with compressed air (canned or from a air compressor). Replace any gasket so the carb doesn't have seepage when reinstalled.

It may sound a bit daunting, but its an easy job and may stores carry the necessary parts. Try WalMart, or auto stores, if they don't then a good hardware store should. Or, a lawn mower shop should have it.

Good luck, I'm rebuilding doing the same thing to one of my mowers this week. Piece of cake.

I can get my lawn mower to start but it will not stay running


Drain all the gas out of your fuel tank via fuel line to carburetor. Then remove the bowl under your carburetor, place container under carb first. You will see that you have water in your gas. Just a little would keep your mower from starting and running. GOOD LUCK FRIEND.

Overfill oil


Did you turn the mower on end or over? If so change the air filter otherwise It sounds like the piston rings are worn out. Rings are cheep but unless its an expensive lawnmower I would just replace it.

Toro Mower wont stay running


The main reason why a mower starts up and then cuts off after a short period of time is because of poor air flow to the carburetor and is most likely a blockage somewhere.

First you should try this. Remove gas cap and filter then place a really thick rag over the top of the carb where the filter was and either blow into the gas tank or wrap a rag around a tapered air chuck and then place the air chuck in the gas tank (with rag fitting snug around chuck) blast it a few times and listen for bubbling, if it's bubbles then you have removed the blockage..
Take the carb off of the mower and clean the carb / jets with a thin piece of wire.
Be sure to clean the gas tank completely and the fuel line.
Check the oil level, some mowers have a low-level oil shut off.
Change the plug out with one thst is reccomended for your engine.
I wouldn't reccomend running the mower without the filter, that causes dirt and grass debri to enter the carb, fuel line and tank.

This should fix the problem, if it don't you should find a lawn mower repair service.

I hope this helps.

My lawn mower will start then it will die after a few seconds, what could be the problem


If the mower was tipped it is quite possible oil from the engine has traveled up the breather and soaked the air filter in oil, this would richen the engine up and stop it running, remove the air filter and check for oil saturation.

If you have not been putting gas treatment in your gas to treat the ethenol they have been putting into the gas its a good chance its the needle valve in the carborator. If you live in a state that does not add ethenol to the gas disregard this advise.

Have gas in oil - will not start


Gas in oil is usually a symptom of flooding, caused by a stuck needle valve or damaged float in the carburetor. But 65 hours is awfully "young" for this problem.
