Question about Craftsman Garden

1 Answer

I can start my 4.75 HP Briggs & Stratton Lawnmower but it dies after a few minutes. I replaced the armature but the same thing happens. I can keep it running if I press the prime bulb a couple of times every 15 seconds.

Try replacing the float and needle. The float (floats) and pulls the needle up to let gas through to the carb. It will stay running as long as you press the prime bulb because this sends gas straight to the carb without going through the gas bowl. It's best to remove the carb and clean it then replace the float and needle

Have a Briggs and Stratten 4.0hp Lawnmower that starts but sputters. What can I do to get it running smooth...What is the Spark Plug GAP?


How old is the fuel? Drain old fuel, use premium fuel and change spark plug and maybe air filter. I start mine in the Spring using quickstart. It also starts and dies a few times and eventually keep running. Winterizing the machine in the Fall prevents most starting problems in the Spring. If this does not solve the problem, see a mechanic.

3.5 hp Briggs & Stratton won't run unless I pour gas into carb


This sounds like a problem with the suction. If the air filter is clean then it will need new carb gaskets. There may also be an issue with the pressure being created by the engine.

You have a fuel delivery issue that can be dealt with by cleaning carb or replacing it. If you do replace carb has to be adjusted to the motor.(idle, mixture)

Briggs and stratton 6.5 Ohv dies after running for about 10-15 minutes. I let it sit awhile then runs again. This is a vertical shaft lawnmower engine.


This is a classic symptom of a blocked fuel cap vent. Next time it dies, remove the cap, wait 30 seconds or so (for carb to re-fill), then try to re-start. If it works, replace the cao.
