I have an older craftsman snow blower 10 hp. It starts ok with full choke, runs ok half choke, backfires with no choke-run position.


It's too lean; not enough fuel mixed with the air. Look for the main mixture screw--it should be a large screw with a spring under it on the carburetor. Run the engine until it's warm.

With the engine running, turn the screw outward (lefty-loosey) about 1/8 turn slowly and see if it improves. Slowly turn the screw back and forth until it runs best with the choke completely off. Then set it 1/8 turn richer (turn screw outward 1/8 turn) than the best position.

Reason for doing this: Conditions change, even the barometric pressure. Small engines run okay if they are a little rich but not if they are a little lean.

I have a murray push mower 6-22271 briggs straton 4 hp. it start and then stalls . filter clean. choke fully closed when control is in full forwrd run/choke position. I pour gas in the throat and pull...


Your carburetor needs cleaned. It is dirty/has debris in it. If it has a bowl that is. If it has a diaphram (carburetor mounted on the fuel tank), replace the diaphram. They go bad.

I hope this helps get you going.

Crafstman 22hp briggs and straton engine, I've changed spark plugs, air filter...when engine runs it does so unevenly and at times backfires. What can I do to solve the problem?


Don't use the choke, turn the lean all the way to the right and back off 1 and a half turn, its running too rich, usually find this screw under bowl on carb, don't mess with the other screws, take air breather off and let breath without choking, if you have to use the choke after this start with just a little.

Make sure it is choking the engine like it should. If it is not choked it wont start for several minutes.

Briggs and Stratton 20hp twin cylinder runs only with full choke


Had one on my saw mill had this problem as well Try pulling bowl off bottom of carby as the float can get **** with old fuel especially ethanol fuels as they attract water bowl is normally held on with one center screw on bottom of carby. Note always turn fuel off and let engine run out of fuel as this stops goop from building up in carby
