SOURCE: Change Oil

All lawn mower engines have a drain plug for draining the oil. Look for a square nut on the side of the engine

SOURCE: Craftsman 5.5 Gold mower will not start

YOUR PROBLEM IS SIMPLE.
FIRST OF ALL THE HOLE IN THE PRIMER BUTTON MUST BE THERE TO POP BACK OUT EACH TIME YOU PRESS IT NOW AS TO THE GAS COMING OUT OF THERE
THE FLOAT IN THE CARB IS STUCK IN THE FILL POSITION AND WILL NOT LIFT ONCE THE BOWL IS FULL TO STOP THE GAS FROM FILLING OR YOU HAVE A PIN HOLE IN THE FLOAT ITSELF.UNDO THE NOT ON THE BOOTM OF THE BOWL WITH THE LAWN MOWER TILTED ON A 45 DEGREE ANGLE SEE IF YOU CAN MOVE THE FLOAT UP AND DOWN IF IT IS FREE MOVING SPRAY THE WHOLE AREA CLEAN WITH CARB CLEANER AND REASSEMBLE TRY TO START ,IF STILL THE SAME PROBLEM YOU WILL NEED TO REBUILD THE CARB AND INSTALL A NEW FLOAT

You have water in in the carborator, I'll bet. I had this same problem. Here's what I did.

I emptied the gas tank, put in a new spark plug, changed the oil and then unscrewed thd big nut on the bottom of the float container (attached to the carborator near the rubber gas injector button) and emptied and cleand the float container. Then i put it all back together, pulled the cord and the same thing happened, but this time i could keep it going by having my daughter constantly pushing the rubber gas injector button. After it had run for a minute with this constant pushing of the button, all the water was gone from everytwhere and it worked.

SOURCE: Craftsman self propelled lawn mower will not propell

Take off the cover up front on the self propel. Engage the self propel and make sure your cable is not broken. If that is ok then remove the wheels and inspect the molded cogs on the inside of the wheels and make sure they are not stripped out. If they are stripped go to www.sears.com and on the tool bar click on parts direct. Under model number enter yours and it will take you to a parts diagram. Get the part number for the wheels and go to local small engine parts dealer and get new. You can also do a search on the web for the wheels and maybe get them cheaper.

Good luck and let me know if this helps or you need any more help.

SOURCE: craftsman self propelled walk behind lawn mower

Normally grass and debris are clogged under the belt/transmission cover, preventing the full engagement of the transmission cable/lever.

The cover is located on the topside, left front corner of the mower shell. Clean debris, try it again. If OK, re-install cover, If not, there is a cable adjustment (threaded portion with a nut on either side of a fastening arm) move the cable adjustment towards the rear, this will tighten the cable. Sometimes the cable assembly (includes the cable and the control box) needs to be replaced

I have a craftsman walk behind lawn mower with a Tecumseh engine, when the gas tank is filled it leaks the gas into the air filter?


If it is a newer model, it may be equipped with a "carbon recapture" feature in which fumes from the tank are funneled back to the engine via a hose. I had this problem with my DR Field & brush mower and finally disconnected it. When I'd mow uphill with a full tank, gas would flow into that hose and back eventually into the air filter, crankcase and oil. A real mess! However, if your gas cap has little holes (vents) in it, you don't have, thankfully, that reburn system and your problem is something else

I need a manual for the Craftsman Walk behind mower #917.388930. The main thing I need to know is when changing oil what is the capacity? SAE 30 non detergent I assume. Thank you.


No, you do not use non detergent oil. You must use only SAE high quality detergent oil with API service classification SG-SL . Use SAE 30 weight or 5W30 if you use the mower during cool conditions below freezing. I highly recommend you use Synthetic oil in this air cooled engine and change your oil once each year. The oil capacity is 20 ounces. You can see the owner's manual at this link. Just click Manual Location and put in the captcha and click submit. No need to sign in or register. http://www.hammerwall.com/Manuals/Craftsman/Description/917.388930/Craftsman%20Walk%20Behind%20Lawn%20Mower%206%20HP%2021%20Inch%20Rear%20Discharge/L0605486/

I need the manual for a craftsman walk behind model no# 91737068. I didn't get one with my purchase


You can get one in PDF, have them email you one, or contact them and say one wasn't included with the new mower. Here is the PDF version for your owner's manual and a parts list is available that may include the paper printed version as well.

I've been given a Craftsman Eager 1 6.5hp mower (front wheel drive)and I can't locate the oil drain plug.


On a walk-behind mower, the oil drain plug can usually be found on the underneath side of the deck. The drain plug usually has a square head.
