Most like over fill with oil or have a carburetor that has fuel into the crankcase creating the same problem.

Sounds like you will need to clean your carburetor.
Sometimes you can get by with priming it a few times, and letting it
run a few times like that and it will flush the gunk out of the jets,
but most of the time you will need to rebuild the carburetor.
If the mower is over a couple years old, then I also recommend that you
buy and install a new carburetor repair kit, because the diaphragm will
get hard and that will cause it to be hard to crank.
When you clean your carburetor and remove the jet screws, count the
number of turns it takes to seat the jets from their original position.
That way when you go to put the jets back in, you know how many turns
they were in/out.
Please do not forget to rate me, Thanks
Good Luck, I hope this helped

Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly.
When a primer bulb is slow to return to a static conditon there is a restriction in the fuel supply. Since this carb is mounted directly on top of the fuel tank the troubleshooting for this involves removing the gas tank and carb as an assembly from the engine. Remove the end bolt and then the side bolt spacer that is just above the tank. Be careful or the spacer will drop. Pull out on the tank until it slides off of the intake. When the tank is free of the engine tile the bottom of the tank toward you and disconnect the throttle linkage. NOTE the hole the linkage is connected to! Set the tank on a flat surface and remove the carb mounting screws. STOP! Do not lift the carb off of the tank until your sure that the gasket and diaphragm are not stuck to both mounting surfaces. You may have to carefuly slide a thin knife blade FLAT across the top of the tank to free the carb from the tank. There will be a SPRING on the bottom of the cabr also. Do not lose this spring and ensure you see how it is installed! Once the carb is free of the tank clean the screen under the carb and the carb with carb cleaner. Reassemble carb to tank. Fill tank with gas and re-check primer bulb BEFORE you reinstall the tank and carb on the engine. If it still does not work.. properly you need to clean the passages again. Worst case you remove the primber bulb to see if there is debris inside the bulb plunger area. Installing tank and carb to engine....
Tip the bottom of the tank toward you.. connect the throttle linkage, watch the o-ring that is in the carb intake sealing area and make sure it seals. Install side bolt and then the end bolt.

Just back tracking here.. I have determined this is most likely a 11A-B04E000 Yard machine with a 5.0 Hp engine... ( Briggs and Stratton refers to this engine as the 10T500 series.

Briggs Stratton 625 series 190cc lawn mower: this has been tipped right over and now there seems to be oil in everything and it won't go, what can we do?


If the engine has been tipped oil will come through the engine breather and soak the paper filter, remove the filter, remove the spark plug and clean/replace, with the plug out crank the engine a few times to to evacuate any oil in the cylinder, replace the plug and try again ( with the filter still removed ) when it finally starts it will smoke quite heavily so do this out side and on a non grass surface ( oil sprayed from the muffler will kill the grass) it will smoke for some time until all the excess oil has gone, check the oil level in the engine and top up if required.

My daughter added oil then proceeded to mow the lawn. mower started smoking then quit. When I got home from work I was able to start the engine one time and it smoked a lot. I turned it off and have not...


With the engine cold, check the oil level. Oil level is quite important especially in a smaller engine. Try to clean all excess oil off engine and body. Then, if you can get it running....check for any leaks. If it is still smoking, it has other issues besides being too full of oil. The oil breather will be full of oil. The oil filter may be saturated with oil. Check those 2 things especially as they allow motor oil to be drawn into the carburetor and cause excessive smoking. Pull out and clean the spark plug. Post back if needed.

Mower blows white smoke


Depending on how old is your mower, it could be broken rings in the engine, or just excess oil. I would recommend to check oil level first.
Hope this helps!

I have a Craftsman 650 series lawn mower. It starts but sputters and smokes and finally dies. I replaced the spark plug and checked the oil but it did not help. What do I need to do now??


I have a similar issue in that my Craftsman 650 in that it sputters and smokes out of the muffler and spits oil out from there as well. It does not die, but I cannot operate the lawn mower with all the smoke and oil blowing out. Plus, I get oil leakage on the deck of the lawn mower (top). What would I check for here?
