Q:

Why is my mower model # 917.388540 idleing up and down repeatedly?

A:

The carburetor is non adjustable. Your symptom is most likely due to a restriction in the carburetor. The carburetor will need to be removed and cleaned and most likely have the needle valve and seat replaced also.

I recommend taking your mower to a Sears or other qualified service center for repair. If you do not feel confident repairing this problem yourself, then you can have it repaired by a Sears technician. Here is a link that will provide the nearest drop-off locations: Sears Home Services .
