I would start at the float in the carb: Sometimes they will get a hair line crack fill with Gas and will act just as you describe. The float can not float.

Primer bulb collapsed


Slightly unscrew the gas cap and see it the problem goes away.
Many times the Gas tank Vent clogs and this will cause the engine to create a vacuum in the gas tank until the engine can't draw in the gas .

Murray select hp


Mathieu. It sound like you have overfilled it with oil. Drain most of it out the leave it level. A lawnmower will run better with it not being overfilled. Clean the spark plug and heat it gently to completely remove traces of oil. John

just like a car before the car start the fuel pump shoots gas in the carb or a lawnmower you gotta prime it all the gas that was in the carbs when you shut them motors off has done evaporated check your fuel cells see if there is a hand pump to prime the carbs unless its electric fuel pumps either way them carbs have to be primed

Lawnmower has been in storage for 6 months. Has new good gas, and gas is flowing to carb. However, engine will not start without priming carb with gas, then runs until primed gas is exhausted. ...


this is from a post i just did for anothe engine but i think it applies to you also.

get a product called START. this stuff is amazing it has solved all my engine problems including a couple like yours. any wal mart should have it. add to your gas and the longer it runs the better it runs. i am telling you it is worth the 6 bucks. i had a 4wheeler that never ran right, always had to half choke it. even though i cleaned the carb twice. added this stuff and by the time that tank was gone it was running like new. if that doesnt take care of your problem then it needs to go to the shop Now your situation i know is dirt or varnish in the carb i have had this problem also. and start worked for me on that also. mix it in the gas and keep it running even if you have to keep priming it

I have a new 650 sears craftsman self propelled 22" lawnmower that will not start. I have gone through the prime bulb instructions, still no luck.\r\nAny ideas? Walter in Alberta Canada.


could be the priming bulb gasket between the air-filter assy. and the carb.
I have the same lawnmower and if I prime with gas from a can it will start but stop after a few seconds. When I push the bulb I can hear air leaking in this area. You can replace the gasket by removing the back half of the air-filter assembly. I am looking to buy a gasket today I let you know how it works out! Thanks Ron
