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

1 Answer

I have a Craftsman 6.5 hp push mower Model # 917 388750. It won't start for the first time since I've owned it. I have a new air filter on it. I tried a new spark plug and I'm getting spark. I'm just wondering if I'm getting fuel. I've taken good care of this mower it still looks new. I even tried to spray a little carb cleaner in there to see if that would help. Nothing. When I pull the cord it doesn't even try to start. It did backfire once but that was it after all I've tried. Is there a fuel filter on here I don't know about? I seen someone else ask that question with no answer. There is no trash or sand in my fuel tank or carb area this is a clean mower.

If you are getting spark than the only thing left is fuel??? You've taken such great care but do not know if you have a fuel filter??? The most novice thing to do is, the unlawful use of carb cleaner in untrained hands, carb cleaner and starting fluid does not fix things, common sense and mechanical ability are the cures for most of life. The carb needs a good cleaning!! Try this and tell us what happens. Good Luck PAL

Model 917.370410 won't start


Sounds to me like this model is a POS. I also have this same model, purchased last August have used only 5 or 6 times , has the same symptoms: hard pull, puff of smoke, won't run , etc. Even brought this to an authorized dealer to get it to run, but then it only ran a couple more times, dead again. Does anyone know of any recalls fro this lemon? I can appreciate everyone troubleshooting , but you shouldn't have to tear apart a 5 month old lawnmower which will only result in your warranty being voided.

Riding mower turns on when the choke is pulled but turns of when the choke is pushed back in. Sometimes it stays on but after a few minutes sounds like it is running out of gas and eventually turns off.


When were the air filter and fuel filter last replaced? Those are the two suspects to cause your problem and unless the mower is pretty new, or they were replace in the last year or two, start with those.

The hose you reconnected was probably for the air to the air filter. Check to see if while the hose was disconnected it pulled grass or dust into the air filter. Check the air filter, try running the mower without the filter. If it runs then replace or blow out the air filter. Hope this helps.
