Clean the carburetor. The needle and float are stuck closed, passage blocked or a jet plugged with debris. Give it a good cleaning.

SOURCE: engine will not turn over

A FUEL PROBLEM. It doesn't over or doesn't keep running when gas is gone. Doesn't turn over, remove spark plug to let fuel out.

I have a craftsman LT 2000 22 horse, the engine sounds like it's struggling and bacfires?


Probably a fuel issue. Backfiring is usually a timing or fuel issue. One can cause the other. As this is an engine issue, please post model and type.

Craftsman LT1000 riding mower with 18hp B&S engine. Mower acts like the battery is almost dead. Will try to turn over but doesn't seem to have the power to cycle the engine. New battery, starter,...


There is a compression release device on the cam shaft to allow the engine to spin easier when starting. This is likely the culprit because the starter isn't strong enough to push the engine past full compression. The fix is to replace the cam shaft.
