Q:

Lawn mower 917.376400

A:

Thanks for the inquiry and for using SearsPartsDirect.com.
Sorry to hear of the vibrations you are experiencing when starting the mower, I know how concerning that can be to have occur.
My first inclination would be to check the blade. If the blade hit something solid like a rock or root, it could have slighly bent the blade, which would cause excessive vibration. Also, if the blade bolt is not tight enough, it would cause play in the blade, which would also cause vibration.
I would also check the blade adaptor for any damage while inspecting the blade. These would be the most common instances that would cause vibration.
Hope this helps and thanks for using SearsPartsDirect.com. We appreciate your business.

Q:

How do I adjust thermostat for 917376400 mower? 917376400 Craftsman Mower

A:

I have attached a link below with some good information on this choke system.

The adjustment should only be made on the bend at the top end of the thermostat arm. Bend it out (forward) to get the arm to push the choke OFF more. Bend the end in more to get more choke. The thermostat itself does not have any adjustments that can be made (that are factory approved).

Thank you for using Manage My Life!

Q:

diagram for spring carburator spring location #917376400 Craftsman mower

A:

Thank you for the inquiry and for using SearsPartsDirect.com. 

Do you think the spring you are referring to is the governor spring? That would be the only spring I see anywhere near the carburetor on this engine. For visual reference, I have included a picture below that shows the spring.

I also see an air vane or brake spring listed on the diagram. I have also attached an image of that spring for reference.

Those are the two main springs I see on this engine, just confirm which it is if any and we can take it from there. Thanks for using SearsPartsDirect.com.
