SOURCE: 6 yr old mower starts, won't run

sounds like a plugged high speed jet in carb - you can attempt to prime again , push at least 7-8 times - once it fires continue to push primer to keep running - it may clear out the carb if this doesnt work the carb will need to be removed and cleaned

Turn on gas with the carb bowl off and float hanging and see how much fuel flows.It should be a steady stream.Have seen the seat in the needle and seat swell that only lets gas drip through not enough to keep it running.

SOURCE: Mower will not stay running unless primer button

The tube in the bottom of the carb. is probably clogged. Remove the carb, and bowl and try spraying WD-40 through the tube, it should spray into the venturi if it doesn't try using a tip cleaner to unclog the tube.

SOURCE: toro recycler will run until primed gas is consumed.

The problem is that the gas that sat in the carb all winter glazed it over and gummed it up. Begin by going to any auto parts store, like an aiutozone, and getting a bottle of carb. cleaner. Seafoam is one I use. Add it to your gas, one ounce per gallon of gas. Also, pick up a can of engine starting spray.

Remove the air filter and spray the engine starting spray into the air intake. Pull start the engine and give it additional squirts of engine starting spray until it runs smoothly.

Starving for fuel runs fine on starting fluid


Make sure gas tank and gas line isn't plugged. Also, make sure the gas itself is good, might have water in it.

Won't stay running after prime runs out


starving for fuel. first check for bad/old gas, then restrictions in the fuel delivery including fuel line, filter, or buildup of debris in tank or any sharp bends or 90deg. fittings. then pull the float bowl and make sure the float is regulating fuel fuel into the bowl, but most likely your main jet is plugged. use a fine piece of wire like guitar string to runthru the jet located at the lowest part of the carb that hangs down into the float bowl. the jet will be on the side or bottom of this lower piece. put bowl back on, get gas to the carb and recheck starting problem. good luck.

Mtd riding mower model 678, dumped gas, replaced fuel lines and fuel filter, new spark plug and battery, starts, runs for a short time then just stops running. wait for a while and starts but then same...


Crack the gas cap and see if this fixes it. If it does, clean the pinhole vent in the fuel cap. A vacuum on the fuel tank would explain your symptoms.
Best regards, --W/D--

Mower engine cuts out at exactly 1/2 full tank of gas


When that happens loosen the fuel cap and see if it stays running. If this is a gravity feed system make sure you have the correct fuel filter on it,the clear paper filters can allow vapor lock to happen,put the small briggs and stratton filter in it,which has a small chamber and a stainless screen.Also make sure there is no excess fuel line that would cause a dip or a high spot for a vapor lock to occur.

Starts when primed but dies...


check your gas cap, try running it without your gas cap on and see if that helps if so id either replace it or drill a really small hole in the top as modern engines the fuel is gravity fed into the carb

Craftman lawnmower start and turn off and do not stay running .


your carb needs to be rebuilt. there is a rubber seat that swells over time and then your float will not allow any gas through. so it will start and run briefly when you prime it. take it to a mower shop for a tune-up.
