This sounds too easy of a solution but I had a like ptroblem with my Craftsman. I loosed the gas cap a bit and the rough running and stalling stopped. he vent on the gas cap that contains a turn over interrupt valve was plugged causing the gas not to flow. I took the cap apart and cleaned out the vent hole though cleaning the holewith a paper clip would have worked as well. Anyway..it fixed my problem. I think my dirty hands of deris deposited the matera in the vent hole when filling with gas.

You may try blowing backwards from behind the fuel filter into the gas line. Not to much air pressure though. Make sure the gas cap is off.

My Craftsman Lawn Tractor 18.5, 42"Mower with Electric Start and Automatic Transmission won't start. (model# 917.275760) won't start. I have put new air filter, fuel filter, battery and spark plug...


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...

Mower starts out with a full gas filter for about 25 min. then starts to sputter and barely has a trace of gas in the filter.


It doesn't have to have a full filter to run, but the sputtering and fuel line volume indicates fuel starvation or a type of vapor lock (from a vacuum situation). A mower like this has to vent the fuel tank or it will only draw a while and then no more. Your gas cap's threads are the actual vent for the tractor. Try running it with the cap on somewhat loose, Post back if needed.

Stalls after 20 mins. of running fine. (Starving for gas)


From the rear of machine look at the top left of fuel tank for the fuel line.Where line comes out of tank see if it is pinched where it goes down between frame and tank,grab line and see if it moves freely.If that is OK loosen fuel cap after 10 minutes of run time to see if your vent hole in cap is working.These are 2 common problems for the L series mowers.

Cub cadet lawn tractor, ran out of gas. After


I would bet that the throttle shaft is worn and has a lot of play in it on the carburator. This is very common. The best bet is to have the carburator worked on by a small engine repair shop, or get a replacement one.
