Question about Garden
I have a Craftsman 625 push mower. It's been fine until today. Now, it's eating gas and smoking a bit, and cutting out. My brother says the choke sounds stuck but I can't find any choke (maybe the red primer button?) Can you help?

Change out gas for fresh stuff. Try it. If not, take off carburator and clean thoroughly. Clean the foam filter assembly as well. Make sure gasline and vent line are clear. Also check the vent cap on the fuel tank. Sometimes it can make a huge difference taking out the sparkplug and removing the filter on the carb, then take some carb cleaner and while your buddy pulls the cord, spray some carb cleaner through the carb. It will travel into the cylinder and immediately out the top, so be careful. No danger of ignition because you took out the sparkplug, but you dont want that stuff in your eyes.

Hi sharonld 123...
Check/Clean/Replace your fuel filter if you have one.
If the mower/weedeater/edger is over a couple of years old, then I recommend that you buy and install a new carburetor repair kit,because the diaphragm will get hard and that will cause it to be hard to crank.
Sounds like you will need to clean the carburetor or replace your carburetor internal rubber parts like the diaphgram and O rings.
Be sure to use compressed air to blow out all the fuel and air passages.
Be careful when blowing out the passages, because there are sometimes small rubber type seats in the bottom of some of the passages.
Sometimes you can get by with priming the carburetor or using starting fluid and letting it run a few times like that and it will flush the gunk out of the jets,but most of the time you will need to rebuild the carburetor.
Keep in mind that the float for the carburetor must be level when you go to reassemble the carburetor or follow the instrucitons you get with the carburetor kit.
When you clean your carburetor and remove the jet screws, you will first need to lightly seat the jet screws.
But before you lightly seat the jet screws count the number of turns it takes to seat the jet screws from their original position.
Be sure to mark the turns down on a piece of paper.
That way when you put the jets back in, you know to lightly seat them first and then turn them back out to their orginal position before you started.
