Question about Craftsman Garden
Float stuck in open position. When the gas evaporated in it there was a gunk left behind and then It was down and either froze up or there is trash keeping the needle valve from sealing up all the way.
So when you start it gas keeps pouring into the motor. It is suposed to shut off once it gets enough to run on.
Be real careful take the carb off and remove the bowl. And then the float. Take a q-tip and clean the needle valve port ou real good. And clean the rubber tip gently. Then put back together.
When it is upside down the float should be parallel with the carb. That would be the shut off point. You may have to adjust it.
That should do it. When you hook the gas line back up loosen the bowl and let gas in carb til it starts to run out. Then mow.

Make sure the blade and shaft can easily be moved by hand. First, remove the spark plug wire from the plug. Reach under the mower and see if the blade will turn or if something is stuck between the blade and the mower. Also remember that you have to hold the safety bar when you are starting the mower or the engine won't turn. It is possible that the cable from the safety bar to the engine brake has come loose. Follow the cable from the safety bar to the engine and make sure it is working.Also check whether the line from the gas tank to the engine is crimped?
