Mower will start but won't keep running, it will start right away but it will shut down again. it has very little gas on the gas filters the gas filter is new but it looks empty... can this be a fuel pump...


Yes it could be. I would disconnect fuel line from carb, put this end of fuel line over a bucket, then turn starter over to check fuel flow. This should tell you quickly if your pump is working or not. Good luck!

My 25 horse kohler starts when I put gas in the carb, then shuts off. I have gas from the fuel pump--HELP!


first check for power going to the solenoid on the bottom of the carb its a anti backfire valve if you have power there when the key is cranking and when turned on the solenoid might just be stuck if that works maybe the gas that was left in the carb turn bad

Brand new 550! push red pump button 3-4 times... pull handle..mower starts up then dies. Will not continue to run..


Sounds like wet fuel! The priming puts enough gas in to start it but the running circuit does not.

Check your gas can for a layer of water on the bottom of it. If it has a lot of water in it you should dispose of this fuel at a gas station that collects used oil and gas. Drain the mower and take that gas away too.

Put in fresh gas from a known clean and dry source.

Let me know what you find ok?

Good luck and be careful!

How do you start a new toro 6.5 hp lawn mower. I borrowed it from my neighbor,but it has 2 levers to pull back. I'm clueless!


One lever is to make it go - wheels will turn & pull the mower..
The other lever is to keep it running - it this lever is released it will shut off..
This is the lever you need to keep pushed for it to start..

When starting - there should be a rubber push button on the engine near the carb.. Push it 4 times before starting.. This pumps gas into the carb for quick starts.. Good luck ;o)

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.
