Question about Craftsman 675 Torque 190cc 21" Briggs Stratton RearBag Push Lawn Mower (CA) ()

2 Answers

My craftsman lawn mower was running fine, then I bumped the front into a swing and all of a sudden it lost power. Now it sounds like it is running at half throttle and I can't figure out how to fix it.

If your plug wire is in the front, check it. It may have come lose and is making sporatic contact with the end of the spark plug. My wife did the exact same thing last week. You may have to look in the plug wire cap at the connector.She bent ours so it was larger than it should have been and not "snapping" onto the plug when pushed on. I just lightly squeezed it together with a plier and then it snapped back on night and tight. Ran great after that.

It sounds as though you are losing power (electrical power); see if charging the battery fully allows it to run longer or if charging the battery helps.

Craftsman 19.5 riding mower starts runs quits no power

When you let it sit did you remove all the fuel or add a additive? If you did not then I would recommend that you remove all the fuel and add brand new fuel to your system. Gasoline only last for about 3 to 4 months before it will start to go bad and this sounds like your problem
