Drain the fuel. Remove the small brass bolt and external washer that hold the float bowl onto the carburetor body. Get some spray carb/choke cleaner. Spray thru the small hole in the bottom of the bolt and find and clean the VERY small holes in the top of the bolt along the unthreaded sides. Use NO metal objects to scrape or clean as there are precision orifices in this. It is the main jet. Clean until nice and shiny, blow it out well and replace it. Your few second run problem should be gone.

Mower starts but if it stops then it will not start for the rest of the day????


Mowing the lawn is a necessary chore throughout the growing season. It prevents your landscape from looking unkempt and keeps your home looking nice and neat. How well your lawnmower works can make a huge difference in how you perceive this task. If the mower runs well and does what it is supposed to, then the job might not seem too onerous, but if your mower stops every time it gets hot, then it can turn a job that should only take a little while into an all-day affair. There are a few reasons why your lawnmower might stall after warming up

Hi, first check the oil. If it smells like fuel, change the oil. Secondly if oil smells ok, check the valve clearances and adjust if incorrect. Let me know if the oil smells like fuel and I will help with a fix to stop it happening again. Regards Phil.

Briggs and stratton 5.5 lawnmower starts and suddenly stops. carborator flooding


I suggest that you start with the carb issue. Flooding is an issue with the inlet valve and float system. Get a rebuild kit and rebuild the carb. My bet is the unit will work correctly after that.

I have a new 650 sears craftsman self propelled 22" lawnmower that will not start. I have gone through the prime bulb instructions, still no luck.\r\nAny ideas? Walter in Alberta Canada.


could be the priming bulb gasket between the air-filter assy. and the carb.
I have the same lawnmower and if I prime with gas from a can it will start but stop after a few seconds. When I push the bulb I can hear air leaking in this area. You can replace the gasket by removing the back half of the air-filter assembly. I am looking to buy a gasket today I let you know how it works out! Thanks Ron

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...


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

My craftsman rotory lawn mower 6.5 hp self propeled walk behind cuts out afater starting a few seconds . model# 917.377070


You have water in in the carborator, I'll bet. I had this same problem. Here's what I did.

I emptied the gas tank, put in a new spark plug, changed the oil and then unscrewed thd big nut on the bottom of the float container (attached to the carborator near the rubber gas injector button) and emptied and cleand the float container. Then i put it all back together, pulled the cord and the same thing happened, but this time i could keep it going by having my daughter constantly pushing the rubber gas injector button. After it had run for a minute with this constant pushing of the button, all the water was gone from everytwhere and it worked.

Generac Generator won't stay running


fuel problem, the float in the carborator is stuck, if you tap on the carborator bowl it will probably get freed up.if not take the bowl off and spray the insides with carb. cleaner.
