What is the electrical part on bottom of carburetor and what does it do


Some lawn more motors include a anti dieseling l solenoid to restrict fuel from entering the carburetor after engine shut down. The technical name is "anti-afterfire solenoid"

When the key is turned on the solenoid retracts allowing the gas to enter the engine as the engine is cranked. When the engine is turned off and no spark condition the engine can continue to run igniting the fuel from a glowing combustion chamber (like a glow plug engine). This device prohibits fuel from continuing to enter the Carburetor after the key is turned off, No spark, no fuel engine will stop.

I have craftsman tractor Model 917.272751. Now engine clicks but will not start. I checked Starter. It is good. What is the posible probelm? Thanks


If it just clicks and won't crank, most likely it is your starter solenoid.
You can verify this by "jumping" across the 2 large posts on the solenoid.
If it cranks doing that then the solenoid needs to be replaced

If you are jumping the solenoid and it cranks but wont start leave the key in the on position and give it a try. Try replacing the solenoid and the wires conecting it to the battery.
