Question about Briggs & Stratton Briggs Stratton Intek V - Twin Vertical Ohv Engine with Electric Start 22 Hp, 1" X 3 5/32" Shaft, ModelNo. 44K777 - 0027 - E1

Open Question

Piston cylinder full of gas, due to leakage thru the carb.

14.5 hp briggs stratton single cylinder engine. Carb has solenoid mounted under fuel bowl. To start engine, I must remove spark plug, rotate engine, pushing gas out of cylinder, reinsert plug and start normally. Next cut session, redo. What is purpose of solenoid, if not to stop flow of gas into bowl? Why isn't float valve stopping flow of fuel?
Engine runs normal, other then starting.

SOURCE: briggs & stratton intek, v-twin, 23 hp. When I engage blades on mower the engine acts like the carb loads up on gas and the engine stops running. When I re start engine (w/o blades on) it runs l

It sounds as if a bearing or a blade on the deck might be frozen up or very stiff. Also check the belts on the deck as well.

SOURCE: 17.5 hp briggs and stratton mower - mowing fine - stopped to gas up - will not start back up - back fires a few times while turning motor over

sounds like you may have a broken valve spring. Do a compression test as you crank it. If the valve spring is broken, you will get nearly zero compression, it will turn over very easily and this would explain a couple of backfires.

My briggs vanguard v-twin 16hp after initial start up this fall started leaking fuel from the carb into the cyl. and into muffler. The jet is seated and not dirty. It leaks somewhere else in the bowl. ...


The solenoid on the bottom is a fuel shut off solenoid to prevent backfiring if shutting down engine with the throttle still open. If you're leaking fuel into the engine, the float is not closing the needle valve in the carb. remove fuel bowl and replace float, and needle valve with seat.Be sure to blow out all fuel passages

When the float in the carb sticks, it allows fuel to drain into the cylinder, that runs pass the rings into the crankcase. When the crankcase is full the pistons cannot go down, and the starter won't turn the engine. Drain all the oil gas mixture, and refill with proper oil. Replace float, needle and seat in the carb bowl. Throughly clean fuel passages, and bowl. If motor won't turn, remove spark plug and turn over engine a few times to remove gas oil mixture from the cylinder too.

Sounds like your carb is flooding. Inside the carb, there is a simple valve that shuts off the fuel flow when the fuel bowl is full. If this valve fails, or if the float sinks, then too much fuel is forced into the cylinder and will wash past the rings and into the crankcase. This causes the engine to run very rich. You need to remove, clean and overhaul the carb, and change the oil and sparkplug and probably the air filter too. Find the model, type, and code numbers on the engine and go to www.partstree.com , www.ordertree.com , or your local repair shop to get the needed carb overhaul kit. Some B&S engines have an option of carbs, so look for a name on the carb itself...probably Nikki or Walbro. The carb kit is not very difficult to install, but make sure to get everything very clean before reassembly.
Good luck.

Cleaned gas and changed fuel filter. Mower only


There are a number of things that can cause this, depending on the engine fitted. Assuming a Briggs & Stratton V-twin...

Check that the carb solenoid under the float bowl is connected, has battery voltage when the ignition switch is at 'RUN', and is functional.

As a quick check, with the engne OFF, turn key to 'RUN' there should be an audiable 'click' from the carb if the solenoid is working.

After that, check that the fuel pump is delivering fuel (disconnect output, and crank engine). SHould be a good flow.

I have gas going into my oil. 17.5 Briggs solenoid on carb bowl


The problem is the float needle and seat are leaking. It is not shutting off the gas when the bowl is full. The bowl fills up, then runs down the intake through the intake valve into cylinder, past the rings into the crankcase. Fairly common problem. Just replacing the rubber tipped needle probably will not stop the leak. The pressed-in brass seat needs to be pulled out and a new one pressed in also. Possibly there is some trash or rust in the carb that has gotten between the needle and seat, but in my experience, it usually takes replacing both to fix.

Fuel in tank going into engine and mixing with oil


The float needle and seat are leaking and not shutting off the fuel when carb bowl if full. It then flows down the intake into the cylinder, past the rings and into the crankcase. Have the needle and pressed-in brass seat replaced. Could save yourself some money if you removed the carb yourself and took it in.

My briggs & stratton will not start


If the engine fires on starting fluid, then you are missing fuel, so you need to start with the source, is fuel getting to the carb? if not why not. Check fuel lines, shut off valves and filters.
If it is, is the carb float allowing the bowl to fill?
If there is fuel in th float bowl, then you need to look at mixture and idle settings.

hope this is of some help.
