Question and Answers

Q:

Hard starter pull on Briggs Stratton snow blower model # 536-888-110 11HP 30". In fact starter was so hard to pull broke my recoil starter assembly. 536 88 110

A:

Thanks for the inquiry and for being a valued member.

I am sorry to hear of the hard-pull condition on the rewind starter. I know how frustrating that can be.

Usually this symptom means the starter is full of ice. Put the snow thrower in a warm place for 24 hours and try to pull the starter rope.

If it still won't pull, remove the spark plug and try again. Watch to see if water/oil/fuel comes out of the spark plug hole. If the cylinder is liquefied, the piston will jam.

If that doesn’t work, I would recommend removing the rewind starter from the housing. You may have to drill out the rivets to remove it. Once it’s removed, check operation to see if it pulls freely. If so, you have something binding on the engine or the engine is seized.

I hope this helps and thanks for using SearsPartsDirect.com. We appreciate your business.

Thought I had read somewhere there is an internal spring in the engine that allows for the engine's compression to lessen during the starting process but increase after starting. Did I dream that? Before I buy another recoil starter want to be sure I solved the root cause.

I am sorry, I don't have a repair manual number to give you. The torque on the nut should be around 8 foot pounds.

Q:

How much oil should I put back into my Craftsman snow thrower model 536.888110 when I change the oil?

A:

The model number that you submitted is not a valid number so I could not pull up your model. The model number really does not matter though. I recommend that you put about 20 ounces and check the level. Then keep adding oil until it reads full on the dipstick. Let the oil run down the fill tube and sit for a minute to get an accurate reading.
