You have a clog in the gas flowing into the carburetor. Get some carb cleaner (the spray kind is fine). Drain or siphon the gas out of your mower and discard. Put a little fresh gas and a little carb cleaner in the tank. Run it through. Do this a few times if necessary. When you get new gas, add a gas stabilizer like Sea Foam.

Craftsman 917373981 will not start unless keep pushing the primer then floods could figure it out if i had a


I have had two problems with this type of mower. The first is if the mower has gotten wet, the screw that holds the fuel bowl on has a small hole in it that can plug up. The second is that there is a line I believe from the carb to the crankcase than goes bad. Hope this helps.

I can't keep machine running unless i keep pushing the primer.


The main jet of the carburetor is clogged, most likely. You need to clean the carburetor. This is not too hard if you have some tools and are handy.

I hope this is helpful for you.

I have a Cub Cadet lawn mower with a, I think, 178 cc motor that has to be primed to start it and I have to keep pushing the primer bulb to keep it running. I think that it's not getting enough fuel....


I believe that your problem is your primer bulb. It is easy to replace, inexpensive, and probably has a small pinhole in it somewhere. You should also check the carburater attaching bolts for tightness. You could be leaking air at this area. I hope this solves your problem.

Can't keep mower running without consistently pushing the primer.


It sounds like there is water in the gas. The only way to remedy this is to take the carb off of the gas tank and replace the diaphragm, there is a small reservoir between the tank and carb...clean with WD-40 to remove water

Craftsman lawn mower can not run without pumping the red button


Hello,

The fact you need to keep pushing the RED or "Primer" button says that your engine is running too lean ie. not getting enough gas.

You probably have a carburator problem due to the old gas gumming up the inside of the carb. The gum and dirt is clogging some of the internal passages of the carburator. It will need to removed from the engine and cleaned. The carburator is held to the engine by 2 bolts and is simple inside. Carefully clean the carb. with either carb. cleaner or laquer thinner or similar good solvant. Reinstall and you should be fine.

Also be sure to check your air filter and replace if dirty.
The red button is a "primer" that pumps extra gas into the engine. It is normally used only only for statrup so if need to use it while the engine's running, you're running too lean.
