Sounds like you coil is over heating after running a few minutes. The windings are seperating, then when it sools they make contact again. Try replacing the coil.

SOURCE: Mower started smoking, then stopped working.

Try to see if there is any oil in it. Or maybe your belt is clogged. A good cleaning and maybe a change of plug may help.

Surging is usually caused by a lean condition You can try to turn the mixture screw ccw about 1/4 to 1/2 turn. If this does not solve the problem your carb will have to be removed, cleaned thoroughly, and reinstalled.

Blue smoke usually indicates burning oil. There may be some residual oil in the cylinder that burns off when the engine is started. Do you use much oil when the engine runs? Keep an eye on the oil; level.

Model 917.370410 won't start


Sounds to me like this model is a POS. I also have this same model, purchased last August have used only 5 or 6 times , has the same symptoms: hard pull, puff of smoke, won't run , etc. Even brought this to an authorized dealer to get it to run, but then it only ran a couple more times, dead again. Does anyone know of any recalls fro this lemon? I can appreciate everyone troubleshooting , but you shouldn't have to tear apart a 5 month old lawnmower which will only result in your warranty being voided.

7Hp OHV Briggs & Straton Craftsman Front Propelled Smokes


Sounds like it is the valve seats. However normally it will stop smoking after is runs for a while if that is the problem. Does it run good? Because if it isn't the valve seats then it is the rings. Or a big scratch in the cylinder wall. Then most of the time it will loose compression. If it isn't smoking real bad then you can get an additive to put with your oil that will make it stop, maybe? It is about ten dollars and you can get is at most autoparts stores. It will just take a couple ounces of it. Follow the directions for how many qts of oil you have. After you change the oil in the motor take a magnet and run it through the oil and see if there is pieces of the rings in it.

I have a 7hp briggs and straton craftsman self propelled push mower. It's a few years old but runs great, the only thing wrong is the self propelled part won't engage. I took it apart down to the axle but...


Could be a stretched out/broken belt, a worn out transmission or the drive teeth on the inside of the wheels could be worn out. I would start by looking at that. Remove the drive wheels and check for damaged or missing teeth.
