When posting please indicate the model number if you are asking about an engine part. If its Briggs and about 4.5 hp ,there is a tab on either side of the primer and that releases the primer. Smaller engines are held in with a metal ring

My briggs and stratton 158cc 500series push mower primer button melted from sun. how do i replace it?

There is a tab on either side of the carburetor right where the primer bulb sits. You can depress both of these tabs with a screwdriver and pry out the plastic ring that holds the primer bulb in place. You can purchase a new primer bulb (with a new plastic tab) from a local mower shop or from a small engine repair shop. When you install the new primer bulb, put the rubber bulb in first then put the plastic ring on top and press it in until the tabs click on each side. It should work correctly after the tabs are clicked properly. You can take off the air filter and look into the carburetor to see if the unit is priming correctly. I hope this helps you out.

Primer bulb has split. Is it possible to replace it & what is the part number?

Most small engine repair shops have these primer bulbs and they are available at Home Depot or Lowes. I replaced mine from a value pack purchased at Lowes for around $6.00, it came with 3 different sizes and took 2 minutes to replace.

don't waste time looking for the primer bulb. probably wont work anyway if its over 6 months old and repairs probably wont do any good either. bad design for a primer system.

Mower shuts off 3 seconds after priming

Briggs made primers with and without holes in them. In my shop it is common to see them transposed on engines.
Take down the MODEL TYPE CODE numbers and check here to see if yours should have the primer with or without the hole in it.

Click the Parts Lookup box in the center of that page.
Next, drop down the menu on the left to Briggs & Stratton. Set the tab at the top to MODEL.
Next, type in the model number and click search.
From the results page, select your exact type number. Your individual parts views will then be listed on the right side of the page. You'll get the idea!

Hope this helps.
