Hi mfignasiak,
Have you checked the the filter in the gas tank?Use a stiff piece of wire with a hook formed on one end to snag the tube and filter out and replace the filter.Thank you for choosing FixYa.com.

I have two craftman push mowers that will start when primed, but, they won't continue to run ! I have rebuilt the carbs. Help !!


Did you check the Seat inside the Carb??
The rubber seat melts with ethanol gas and then the hole is too small to support the running engine even when the Needle valve is allowing gas past.
Did you unscrew the long jet and clean those tiny holes?

Mower starts when primed but stops when the primed fuel is used up


The jet in the Carb is gummed up. Take that 1/2" bolt off the bottom of the Bowl..That IS the Jet. Many times the Bowl will just hold in place with the Bolt out.. make sure the three holes are clear. 2 are close to the head of this bolt and you should have a real small hole where the threads end. Screw it back in...see what happens

When using the primer to prime engine fuel leaks out from the carburator bowl? No leakage when operating. Is the carb in need of a rebuild?


I have a gokart that will do the same thing. No Your carb doesn't need to be rebuilt its just where gas builds up and starts to overflow. It'll be fine as long as its not leaking when your operating it.

Fuel Starvation - Float Bowl Carburetor
1) remove air filter assembly
*be cautious of tearing the mounting gasket. If it does tear, you HAVE to replace it. It is part of the priming system
2) remove the float bowl fastener. This is the main jet
3) carefully remove the float bowl, the rubber o-ring/gasket will not be able to be used if it is removed, you WILL have to replace it
4) using a spray 'carb cleaner'
spray up thru the center of the carburetor
spray and clean the main jet with cleaner and 'tag' wire
(tag wire is very thin, and can be used to clean the hole in the center of the main jet)
5) clean any debris from inside the bowl or carb body
6) re-install bowl and center bolt, air filter assembly

*if you need gaskets, your Briggs dealer can supply. The kit is cheaper than individual gaskets, and all the parts needed to finish the above repair are in the kit.

Lawn mower works when primed, but will pump gas to continue running.I tried to clean the valves.


if its a briggs engine then the nole in the bottom of the carb bowl( looks like a half in nut) is partially clogged. Clean oit with a torch tip cleaner or fine wire. If its a tecumseh engine then the nole thats deep inside the carb that has 2 orings on it is clogged the same way, remember to replace both o rings if you remove them/

Engine starts dies down immediately.fuel is ok spark plug ok


Most likely the carburetor is not ok. An engine does not just DIE. If you press the prime bulb, does fuel squirt in carb. If it starts the runs for about 3-5 seconds then dies, there is most likely a float or needle shut off problem. Or it could be as simple as a clogged carburetor. It only takes one tiny peice to clog one. Take the carb off and make sure all jets( small holes in carb) are clean. Mike. Rate 100% please.

let it surge, it will usually get better as it warms up. These 6.5 Hp engines are fine except they have an cheap badly designed carburator. Nothing can be done about this problem. They all surge eventually.
