Question about Craftsman Garden
Go to start my riding mower and it backfires as i am trying to start it. but runs fine once running. doesnt backfire every time starting it. mower runs dam good while mowing. any clues what might be causing this ? thanks
My bet is the way you shut the mower down after the previous mowing?.Common problem is shutting down the hot engine while the throttle is in any other position then full idle...two things can happen when this is done...a backfire seconds after shutting down or starting up due to excessive gas left in the cylinders and intake when shutting down ..so try this pull the throttle to full idle and let run for 30 seconds or so the turn the switch off..all gases will be used up.. Works for me...good luck..

When you let it sit did you remove all the fuel or add a additive? If you did not then I would recommend that you remove all the fuel and add brand new fuel to your system. Gasoline only last for about 3 to 4 months before it will start to go bad and this sounds like your problem

First,if your blade is bent and hasnt been replaced yet,do it, second make sure your timing is still right on your engine.

SOURCE: lawn mower not running
sounds more like the carb sucked up something if u take it off and tear it down let soak in solvent than blow air thru body to dry and clear passages dont mess with adj

I had the same issue and after trying everything I tokk the gas cap off and noticed there was negative pressure in the fuel tank when I broke the seal... I'm pretty sure the gas cap was just too tight, I threaded it back on but did not torque it down and the mower is running fine.
