Engine problem I have a Craftsman Riding Lawn Mower. It has a 19 horsepower engine. My problem is that it will not run unless the choke is pulled all the way out. I need to know what to do to fix it so that it will run with the choke disengaged.

Most probably there is a restriction of gas flow in the carb from varnish, trash or rust. The carb need to be cleaned/repaired.

If the mower starts and continues to run after injecting, you may want to make sure the choke is working properly. If the choke plate is not closing all the way, it will make cold starts difficult.

Riding mower turns on when the choke is pulled but turns of when the choke is pushed back in. Sometimes it stays on but after a few minutes sounds like it is running out of gas and eventually turns off.


When were the air filter and fuel filter last replaced? Those are the two suspects to cause your problem and unless the mower is pretty new, or they were replace in the last year or two, start with those.

Blowing oil out mufler


Very common problem you have here
Try this when running the mower be sure that after starting you pull the throttle lever back a bit so that you are not in the choke position

IF you are choking the engine you will get oil **** through the engine and sooner rather than later oil in the muffler

Most likely it is the governor spring but you could have a stiff throttle shaft or a needle that is not closing properly allowing the carb to flow too much fuel into the engine.

Craftsman Riding mower won't stay running


Well this could be a couple of things first thing first is check the air filter and make sure its clean you can blow it with air or pore gas over it and clean it make sure you let it dry before reinserting
second im assuming this is the first time you have used it this year if so the gas you have in it hasnt been sitting in it all year has it like anything else gas gets old
third alot of times you can let it run for a while with the choke out then slowly pushing it in
fourth you could have water in the gas remove the tank and empty it remove the spark plug turn the engine 4 or 5 times only bumping it dont hold it down this will blow some of the water out then dry the spark plug off and replace it
if this doesnt help it could possibly be carburetor problems

Craftsman 16 hp 42 in. riding mower won't run when clutch is released


If the engine feels like it is being choked, then something might be catching or bound up...for example the blades may have been installed improperly and will not rotate. Make sure that you can rotate the blades by hand...if not they may have been tightened and are binding against the mower housing.

If there is no engine choking...then it may be electrical for example a bad fault switch...take it to your mower shop.

good luck
