Question about Craftsman Garden

1 Answer

My craftsman 6.75hp mrs lawnmower dies out after a few seconds. I've changed the spark plug, added oil and gas, and cleaned the filter. Any other suggestions? I don't know much about lawnmowers or engines. So it you tell me to check the carburator, I wouldnt know where to look for it.

You will have check the carburettor. If you cleaned the air filter, the carb.is right under it. Or if you follow the fuel pipe from the fuel tank it will run straight to the carb. Remove the round bowl at the base, it is held on with a small screw at the bottom. Clean this out and blow out the carb. with air. You may have to remove the whole carb. to clean it right. Good luck, Stephen.

How do i fix my lawnmower


  • If you are using good quality gas, you may need to change the gas filter or air filter and make sure the gas line is not kinked.
Occasionally, the air filter can be partially cleaned by gently tapping it or some types of air filters can be rinsed and reused.

  • If the gas is contaminated, you will need to remove and/or empty the gas tank and use high octane gas for 2-3 fills.
  • If none of these options resolve the issue, you may need to check and/or to change the spark plug and its connection.
  • If all else fails, consider the cost of a major service vs replacement.

Lawnmower looses power. Sounds like it is running on one cylinder. Have changed spark plugs, air filter, gas filter, drain gas, pulled fuel cylinoid from bottom of carbarator and drained. Replaced and...


Hi, first check the oil. If it smells like fuel, change the oil. Secondly if oil smells ok, check the valve clearances and adjust if incorrect. Let me know if the oil smells like fuel and I will help with a fix to stop it happening again. Regards Phil.

My lawn mower srarts than dies its not out off gas or oil


There are a few popular solutions for your problem. You can try changing out the old gas completely, with new fresh gas, you can try changing the spark-plug and air-filter. You can try cleaning the carburator or replacing it if you find it is broken. And you can try removing the spark-plug wire and putting in-line, a spark tester. The ark should be blueish white Not dull orange or yellow. If the spark is insufficient then you can try removing the pull-string cover and lightly sand the magnet that is on the fly-wheel and passes by the ignition coil. Good-luck.

My craftsman rotary lawnmower wort start i changed the spark plug


a mower will hold 20 oz of oil. however most times it is changed you do not not get it all out. so only 16 oz is needed. if you overfilled the oil. this would cause hard starting. or did you have the mower tipped on it's side for to long, oil can sometimes seep past the piston out thru your intake valve and into your carb as well as destroy you air filter. you might get by with a new oil change and a carb cleaning.


also has this unit been sitting for a while does it have fresh gas. and No water in the tank/carb

Not getting gas to combustion chamber, leaking gas from exhaust


Definitely the carburetor. Take it off and look for something clogged. Look carefully at the gaskets. Look for water and dirt in the float bowl.
