Q:

Model 917378922 wont start 125K020303E1 Briggs&stratton Engine

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.

This sounds like an internal carburetor issue. You likely have a blocked main jet. Spraying starting fluid is bypassing the jet, which is why the engine runs for a brief moment until the fluid is used up. A thorough carburetor cleaning will be needed to solve this issue.

I would pull the carb from the engine. With a full can of carb cleaner, a wire brush, and a bread tie wire to poke through and clean the main jet; I would recommend a very thorough cleaning. Start by taking off the float bowl. Douse it very liberally with carb cleaner, and undo the pin for the float, and remove the needle and float. Clean them very thoroughly with the wire brush and carb cleaner. Pay close attention to the seat the needle sits in and clean it well. Once clean, start brushing the carb bowl and body and make sure you get all the varnish out. It may take three or four brushings with carb cleaner dousing in-between. From there, take the straw of the carb cleaner and shoot carb cleaner through any little hole or passageway of the carb. Shoot out the throat of the carb and poke the main jet with the bread tie wire. You have to make sure you get everything the first time, if you leave anything behind, it’s likely to reclog once you have it reassembled. 

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

A:

Thank You for choosing Sears PartsDirect.com and being a valued member. It is unfortunate to hear that you are having issues with your mower and I do understand your frustration. Glad to help out. I'm looking at your model number 917378922 and here is a link for the owner’s manual that contains the directions for replacing the blade. The adaptor will slide off. It is possible if the shaft or the adaptor is damaged or the key in the shaft may be damaged inside and not allowing the adaptor to slide off. Here is an image of the directions. Just click the blue link above to be taken to the page. I trust this information will help you.
