Question and Answers

Q:

wont start 10M9020489E1 Briggs&stratton Engine

A:

Thanks for the inquiry and for being a valued member.

I am sorry to hear of the starting issue you’re having with the mower. I know how frustrating that is to have happen.

There are three basics the engine needs: Ignition, Compression, and Fuel.

First, go back to the spark plug. Remove the lead, or wire, that connects from the engine to the plug. Remove the plug and put it back in the lead. Now position the lead so the metal end of the plug is against the engine or another clean unpainted metal ground point. Keep your hands away from the plug so you do not get shocked, and have a helper pull the rewind start. Look for sparks at the end of the spark plug. Look carefully as it might be hard to see in sunlight or other bright lights. If there is spark there then you have ignition, the first of the three basics. If not, the spark module will likely need replacement.

The engine should have been spinning over faster once the plug was removed and you should hear air rushing out of the spark plug holes in puffs. You could even try putting a thumb or finger over the plughole to see if the pressure pushes your finger off when turning over, just be careful not to touch the grounded plug so you do not get shocked. If that all happens then you have the second ingredient, compression. If not then you may need a valve adjustment or may have a broken component inside the engine. 

That leaves fuel. Check the tip of the plug you just removed, if fuel is reaching the engine there should be some residue there and it should look somewhat wet. If you used your finger to check compression then you may even see some residue on your finger. If there is fuel here, your problem may be old fuel or a timing issue. Try putting a small amount of good fuel into the throat of the carburetor and try to start. If your problem is fuel related only, the engine should now try to start, or even run, until the fuel you put in is gone. That would indicate the fuel supply is being stopped in the fuel tank, fuel line, fuel filter, or carburetor. 

If you would feel more confident have a Sears Home Service technician help assist with the diagnosis/repair, you can call 1-800-469-4663, or click here to be directed to the page to set up service.

Q:

engine stops quickly after starting 10M902-0367-E1 Briggs&stratton Engine

A:

Thanks for the inquiry and for being a valued member.

I am sorry to hear of the engine issue you are having on the mower. I know how frustrating that is to have happen.

Due to the fact that it starts up, we can eliminate spark and compression. This is almost certainly a carburetor issue. Specifically, the clogged or partially clogged main jet that is not allowing a free flow of fuel, which starves the engine and dies. 

I would recommend a replacement carburetor. This tank feed style of carburetor is difficult to clean right, and there isn't a rebuild kit for it. For the cost of the replacement carb, it would make sense to go that route.

For convenience, I have linked the carburetor below. Just click the blue link to be directed to the Sears Parts site to view and purchase it when needed.

Q:

Craftsman 917387670 mower throttle linkage broken? 917387670

A:

Thanks for the inquiry and for using SearsPartsDirect.com.
I was able to locate the Briggs manual for this engine, model 10M902-0489-E1, but it looks pretty basic and doesn't cover the linkage. I have linked it below nonetheless. 
I was able to find a pretty good YouTube video you can watch to get a good idea of how the Briggs throttle linkage and governor are set up. This is not model specific, but should help you identify if you are missing something. I have linked the video below.
Outside of the video, I have some visual photos you can view from my Google image results. These will also help you see how the springs are attached.

Hopefully these visual references help you figure out the issue with the throttle not staying open. Thanks for using SearsPartsDirect.com. We appreciate your business.
