Riding Mower Won't Start Without Gas In Carburetor

April 16, 2011

I have a Craftsman ride on mower 917275180, with a Kohler engine. I can't get gas to pass the carburetor. I tried blowing, cleaning, new gas, etc. It works for a few seconds, if we spray gas into the carburetor.

These mowers use gravity feed to the carb. You may have a kink in the line or a plugged gas line coming from the tank. Try disconnecting the gas line to the carb and see if you have gas running out of the gas line.

Could be the carburetor float, fuel filter or bad gas.

I have a Murray riding mower and it has spark, gas in the lines, but only runs if you dump gas down the carb! Help?

My riding lawn mower needs gas poured directly into the carburetor for it to start. Once it fires up, it runs fine.
