How to fix carburator flooding for craftsman model #917.270811


Sounds like your float valve in the bowl on the carb is sticking from dirt buildup in the open position or the float is bad sometimes the float develops small rust holes from the newer ethenol gas..allowing gas to enter the float ring and causing the ring to stay in the open position and flooding especialy when not running..if your mower had a manual shutoff make sure you shut it off EVERY TIME YOU SHUT DOWN if not put one on this will stop the flooding when not running..good luck..

Pump bulb on craftsman weed blower and no gas pumps into the bulb


If you slacken the screws fuel will leak as you have broken the seal between the carb body and the primer bulb so this is quite normal, behind the bulb is a plate with a red non return valve, if this valve is faulty it will not pump fuel, or if the filter in the tank is part blocked it will not pump fuel

Chain will run if you pour gas into carb but willnot otherwise a mcCulloch 160s


Could be the fuel line is rotted off in the tank only letting it pull in air. The other thing if this is ok would be the carburator needs a kit put in it. The diaphrams go bad in the carburator. Please rate my answer so I am rewarded points for it.

Cant start my craftsman leaf blower


Chances are your carburator has dirt in it.
It doesn't take much to clog those little carbs.
Empty the gas tank and clean it.
Purchase a can of small engine carburator cleaner. Comes in a spray can for about $5 at Home Depot or Lowes.
Remove the carburator and disassemble it.
Soak the body in clean gasoline for about 15 minutes if you can, agitate it to help the gas disolve any clogs.
Clean the ports with the spray cleaner to blow out any debris.
Reassemble and remount the carb.
Remove, clean and gap the spark plug
Refuel the gas tank with new clean gas

Lawnmower sat up for a season would not crank replaced sparkplugs air filter fuel filter hose fuel pump is pumping gas to carburator but still will not start unless you pour some gas into the carburator or...


If it will start when you pour gas then its a fuel problem on some of these they have a screw at the bottom of the carb remove that and see if you have bad fuel. If that does not work then remove the carb and service it may just be a stuck float or something

I purchased a 1995 GPZ 1100 Kawasaki motorbike. It has 10,000 miles. It been sitting for the pass 14yrs. It was started occasionally for time to time. I?ve had the tank, and carburetors professionally...


Hope you drained the oil and also changed the oil filter.
This problem of cutting off is a carburator/fuel related issue.
I guess the fuel might not be pouring in to the float chambers faster enough.
Try this, remove the air -filter and thn start the engine and as it is about to cut off, block the intake(by your palm) at the carburators and see what happens...taking care not to over block it as the gas may pour out and also flood in the combustion chamber rendering it to shut off due to to much fuel.
If it does respond and stay running thn the problems is tht the carbs are not getting the gas as required and probabley you may have to recheck the float level, the float pin,carb synchro, air-fuel mixture.
Check the pet- c o c k too.
Hope this helps!

I have a sears lawnmower that was flooded recently. I bought a tune up kit and installed it. I changed the gas and oil also. when I poured in the gas it all came out the air filter. What should I check...


carburator float is stuck in the open position allowing fuel to continiously run / drain out the fuel tank into the carb and then overflow into the venturi of the carb into the engine and out the air filter. Bottom line the carb needs to be disassembled cleaned and rebuilt

42 inch Craftsman carburator not getting any gas. You can spray quick start and will will fire. Does gas from tank gravity feed to filter?


gas tank gravity feeds fuel to the carb. if you pull the fuel line from the carb, fuel should flow out of the tube. if it does not, then either the vent hole on the gas cap is plugged or there are contaminents at the bottom of the gas tank preventing fuel from flowing into the fuel line.
