Question about Craftsman 42 in. Deck 19.5hp Lawn Tractor

1 Answer

The mower will not start unless you pour a little gas in the carb. It seems to be getting gas up through the filter just not into the carb.

Riding lawn mower will not start. Craftsman Model 917.28851. New battery, new fuel filter, spark plug is newer, cleaned air filter.


Pour a little gas into the carb intake where the air filter fits on.If it starts but then stops it is a fuel problem and most likely will need a carb cleaning/repair.This is a common problem because of ethanol in the gas.ALWAYS when a mower sits for a extended period run the carb dry of gas and do the same for all small motor equipment.

3.5 hp Briggs & Stratton won't run unless I pour gas into carb


This sounds like a problem with the suction. If the air filter is clean then it will need new carb gaskets. There may also be an issue with the pressure being created by the engine.

Try looking at the screw that holds the bowl in place, sometimes they have a little orifice on them that gets clogged and hinder fuel from reaching carb. Use a small pin or small gauge wire to clean. Good Luck...

1998 1500 will not start unless I pour a little gas in the carb. When I stop the engine after running a while it will not start again unless I pour gas into carb again. Any ideas?


It is your fuel pump or fuel filter. When you turn your key on, you should hear a buzzing sound for a second or two. If you don't hear it, thats what it probably is. If you have a fuel pump relay or fuse, check that first. If the pump kicks on, check the filter. One of these is your solution my friend.

If it will start when you pour gas then its a fuel problem on some of these they have a screw at the bottom of the carb remove that and see if you have bad fuel. If that does not work then remove the carb and service it may just be a stuck float or something

Lawn mower will not stay cranked unless you keep pouring gas into


common problems to all older lawnmower, lots of dirt and dust the mower goes through and ages. I would first start by taking the carb apart and clean the filter with soap and water, allow it to air dry. also carburetor prob need rebuilding or replacing. Pick up some Carburetor cleaner at any auto part store and spay it down the carb, dont be afraid to spray allot in there and let it dry for 1/2 and hours. carb tend wear and parts need replacing just like any engines. 99% of the time lawn mower carb goes out before the engine will and common problems with all lawn mower. If you not mechanical incline or dont want to rebuilt it, just buy the whole new carb and replace it, fairly cheap easy to replace and will last you another 10 + years or more. www.briggsandstratton.com

Gas pouring out of air filter


carb is gummed up from the old fuel turning to varnish and clogging the jets. while trying to start, its trying to inject fuel, but its clogged and taking the path of least resistance (coming out the air filter).

you'll need to drain the gas tank and remove the carb to clean it out. if unfamiliar or uncomfortable doing this, then take it to someone to do a carb cleaning.
