Q:

mower when cold runs rough 917374801 Craftsman Lawn mower

A:

Thanks for the inquiry and for being a valued member.

This sounds like a choke issue. I would make sure the choke spring is intact and take a look at the assembly to see if there is anything out of place. If you input the Honda engine model of GCV-190-AS3A into Sears Parts, you can see the choke breakdown schematic. 

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

Q:

Craftsman mower front swivel wheels not rotating easily when mowing

A:

Much time and effort goes into attaining a good looking lawn, I can understand the concern if the mower is causing damage. I checked through the expert archives and found a previous post that may help in this case. I attached the link below so you can check while waiting for the expert. I also attached the link to Sears Home Services if you would like to have the mower examined and repaired.

On top of the wheel spindles there is a nut that holds the assembly onto the mower. Remove that nut and drop the spindle/wheel out. Clean the shaft and grease it then put it back; do that on both sides. That should take care of the problem with the wheels not wanting to swivel easy when using the mower in grass.

Q:

Craftsman model 917.374801 with 6.5 HP Honda engine runs rough before it runs well.

A:

I can understand how important it is to have all of your equipment working properly. While you are waiting for your expert answer, I have found two links that will help you with this. I would suggest that you check the air filter, use fresh fuel, and check the spark pulg. If any of these are going bad or a clogged then it can be a serious problem for the lawn mower. I hope this helps.

A:

Use a flashlight to look down in the fuel tank and look for any kind of trash that may be in there. If that looks good, take the line off at the carburetor and allow some fuel to flow through the line to make sure it is clear. If everything looks good with the line, remove the bowl from the carburetor and make sure there is no trash or water residue down in the bowl.

Any of those things can cause this to happen. If you check them all and still have the problem you may need to pull the carburetor and go through it will carb/choke cleaner (in a spray can) and clean the carburetor thoroughly.
