Use starting fluid when it does finally start continue starting until all the oil is cleared out of the carburator you may need to repeatedly choke out the carb with the engine running to clear out the carb, do this by removing the air cleaner, start the mower on high speed rpm, and cover the air intake with your hand repeating this start/ choke/ stall procedure until it is cleared out it works, I just did this to a mower last week that had too much oil in it, the mower smoked quite a bit but eventually returned to normal

My mower started making smoke and then stop working?


SOUNDS LIKE THE OIL HAS FLODDED THE SPARK PLUG. REMOVE THE SPARK PLUG AND CLEAN IT USEING A WIRE BRUSH AND SOME BREAK PARTS CLEANER. THEN DROP SOME OF THE OIL OUT. YOU MAY HAVE PUT TOO MUCH IN THE ENGINE. THE SMOKING WAS CAUSED BY THE OIL BEEING BURNED BY THE SPARK PLUG. SOME HOW OIL GOT IN THERE. TRY CLEANING THE INSIDE OF THE SPARK PLUG OPENING WITH SOME CARB CLEANER. PUT THE SPARK PLUG BACK IN AND TRY TO START IT. REMEMBER IF THE SPARK PLUG IS FOULED UP, IT WILL RUN POORLY OR NOT AT ALL.

Craftsman 6.75hp self propelled mower starts and turns off


I think that this is a 4stroke engine and runs on neat petrol.Have you been putting oil in with the petrol like a 2 stroke engine needs because this would account for the smoking.If not the check that you havn't overfilled the gearbox oil.

Can not start mower - petrol n oil ok - how do I get into s plugs


Hello,

Fuel in the oil indicates an excessively rich condition. To correct, you will need to drain the petrol contaminated oil and replace with new. Then, take out the old spark plug and leave the spark plug hole open. Turn the engine over several timesby hand to help vent any raw gas in the cylinder. Then, install a new spark plug.
You should be able to now start your engine and make any other adjustments with it running.

Cheers!
