Question about Craftsman Garden
Posted by Anonymous on
Here is one suggestion,that may help. When mowing,did you hit something hard,like a root or maybe a small stump. There is a key to a key way under the fly wheel. The key has to line up with the key way for the motor,to run. This is a way that the motor is timed. This key is made to shear off if the mower hits something solid,this is to protect the motor crank shaft from damage. To get to the key,to check to see if has sheared,you must remove the fly wheel. If the key is sheared you will have to purchase a new key,any lawn mower parts store has them. If you don't have a part number,that okay,just give the model # of the motor and the horse power. The parts department can look up the key. If this is a problem,for you,than take the sheared key to the parts department,and they can match up the key,by actual seeing the key. Remember this,you must have some mechanical knowledge,when doing this repair work. The flywheel usually comes off with little effort,then again,on some fly wheels has to removed with a puller tool. I hope this helps. Sincerely,Brad Locke

01 Fuel tank cap? Loosen it to see if it is plugged.
02 Possible fuel line obstruction? Disconnect at carb to make sure there is adequate fuel flow.

Since you already checked for spark and air I would drain all the fuel out of it and check that fuel for water. Over time some lawn mowers end up with contaminated fuel. You can see the water sitting on the bottom of the fuel if you let it stand for a bit in a small plastic bowl.
Be sure to empty and dry out you fuel can as well. Especially if the mower stopped running right after a refuel. Which is a good sign your gas can is contaminated too.
