Mower Not Getting Gas to the Cylinder?

I have a Craftsman Lt2000 model 247280904 that will not get gas to the cylinder though, it does turn over. I have a new starter and battery, but when you go to start all it wants to do is crank and spin, but not start. I have checked all the gas lines. The carburetor is cleaned and it's getting spark and combustion. Any help would be appreciated!

I had the exact same issue on a 17 HP Kohler. After scratching my head for a couple hours, I just happened to notice the gas tank looked like it was under pressure. I took the gas cap off and the tank released the pressure and it fired right up. I put the cap back on and it stalled out after about a minute. Long story short, the vent hole on the gas cap was clogged and after cleaning and boring the hole out a little, the issue was resolved. May not be your issue, but an easy place to start.

Thank you so much! I had tried most all the other fixes and read your post about the gas cap and noticed my tank looked a slight squished. The cap tiny hole at the top had some gunk in it completely blocking it.


Cleaned it out with a paper clip and voila started right up and ran better than had Inna while. Thanks!!!

Sounds like your exhaust valve seat blew out. Is it a OHV engine?
