Question about Craftsman Garden

2 Answers

I have a Craftsman 6.75hp MRS mower/mulcher. 917.378922. It dies out after only a few seconds. I've changed spark plugs, added oil and gas. I even cleaned the air filter thoroughly and took off the air filter mount and cleaned behind it. This is about the extent of my lawnmower knowledge, as well as gas engines.

I cleaned the carburetor with a brush and took off the bowl and cleaned the bolt holes. Then sprayed it down with starting fluid.

Try this.
When the mower is about to die, loosen the gas cap.
My mower gas cap vent holes plugged up and kept stalling the mower.
If it works, drill out the vent holes.

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.

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.

Craftsman riding mower starts rides a few minutes then stops


Make sure that when you check the oil that the mower has sat I say for at least 5mins. Your mower might have an oil sencer. If not I think it might be the coil gettin hot and shorting out.

Won't start at all


your air filter could be clogged. Also, you can remove the plug and spray a small amount of starting fluid in and replace plug and see if it starts.

Craftsman 6.75hp self propelled mower starts and turns off


I think that this is a 4stroke engine and runs on neat petrol.Have you been putting oil in with the petrol like a 2 stroke engine needs because this would account for the smoking.If not the check that you havn't overfilled the gearbox oil.

Hard to start, when it does start only runs for a few seconds.


You need a full tuneup which means after the spark plug you need to do all of these and you will have a good running mower.
Drain gas tank.
Take carburetor off and clean it.
Pull the top off the engine and clean the flywhee maginets and the coil face with a small wire brush of emery cloth.
Clean screen in gas tank if there is one.
Fuel filter if the is one.
Be sure to check for a good spark after all this is done.
If this is all done you should have a good running mower.
