Q:

self propel 917372480

A:

Thanks for the inquiry and for being a valued member.

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

If the belt is not turning when you pull the handle, I recommend checking the cable first. With the engine turned off and the front belt cover removed have a helper pull the handle. You should see the transmission rotate. If the transmission is fine, I recommend making sure the belt is in the engine pulley. If the belt is not in the pulley, go ahead and check the condition of the belt. If it has a burnt spot or is worn, it should be replaced.

You may need to perform a drive cable adjustment. Check the brackets the cable connects to and lubricate them if needed. A thorough visual inspection should identify the issue. The cable adjustment and accessing the belt are covered on page 15 of the owner’s manual.

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

Thank you for the inquiry and for using SearsPartsDirect.com. I am sorry the rebuild didn't seem to make any improvement on the mower, I know how frustrating that is.

It definitely sounds like a carburetor issue. What's odd is that I don't see a rebuild kit being offered for it either. How did you obtain the rebuild kit, or did you just disassemble it and clean it up? It sounds like through the cleaning/rebuild, you may have dislodged some old grime that has worked it's way into the jet once you've put it back together. 

I don't see any adjustment screws for the carburetor, so the most logical conclusion would be to take it apart again, and have a full can of carb cleaner and a pipe brush/wire brush and do another full cleaning of the inside. Make sure to unscrew the jet and shoot the crevises/jet out with compressed air with an air compressor if you have one. How did the needle/seat look? Did you replace them or just clean it up? Make sure you clean very well within the seat area. Having the air compressor is critical to shoot the compressed air into the passageways.

Outside of the carb cleaning, it could also tie back to the valves. However, it sounds more like the carb since it seemed to get worse once you rebuilt it.

If you have any further questions or inquiries, please don't hesitate to ask. Thanks for using SearsPartsDirect.com.
