Sounds like you need to clean or replace your fuel lines. (Tubing/hoses) that model is pretty cut and dry with how its set up to pull start. Or maybe the gas in the tank is OLD? Try running a tube from a small can of fresh gas, to the carb. If it runs that's your problem!

This sounds like the float is sticking in the carb causing it to flood . You need to take the carb off and clean it and put a kit in adjusting the float per the instructions

MOWER ONLY RUN WHEN U PUT GAS IN CAB WANT START


Ok, so your not getting gas to carberator, or thru the carberator. Disconnect gas line from carberator, if gas is present thru fuel line, you have a carberator problem. Your rather meger with your mower information so this is all i can tell you. Wish i could be of more help.

Sounds like your Carberator is plugged up. Take out the main jet and clean it and be sure needle is not stuck and not allowing gas into the carb.

I left gas/oil mixture in my Craftsman weed wacker for too long and now it won't start. Is there a simple way to fix it? I assume the carburator is crudded up. Thanks!


I add fuel stabilizer if fuel is still in mowers, etc. for the winter since it isn't easy to totally drain it.
Just a day ago, our rototiller was limbered up for the garden and I shot 'starter fluid' (ether) into the air intake before even trying it and it fired on the second pull. You can buy the stuff at any auto parts store and even dollar stores.

hello. Your carberator injectors are partially gummed up. go to any auto parts store and get two cans of a product call seafoam. Follow the directions on the can regarding how much you use per gallon of gas in the tank. After you have run some seafoam through the carberator it will solve your problem.
