Question about Garden

2 Answers

Hello, My Model #917378320 Craftsman lawn mower starts fine, but then dies after 2-3 seconds. It ran well last week on stabilized gas from last fall. This morning I gave it new gas, plug and oil. Any ideas? Thanks, Bob

It sounds like a fuel restriction, check the siphon tube. Also make sure your oil isn't over full.

Self-Propelled Model Starts, then dies after about 15 seconds


I posted same problem as this couple days ago. Took mower to shop. The governor spring (located just under the air filter) had come off. So glad it was something so minor!
