Q:

Mower 918.388680 Filter 917388680 Craftsman Gas, walk behind lawnmower

A:

Thank you for being Sears’ valued member and for contacting SearsPartsDirect.com with your question about the filter for your Craftsman walk behind mower model 917388680. I am so sorry you are having difficulty locating the part. I will be happy to help you with this. 

Because the air filter is on the engine, it is listed under the engine model number. Your mower has a Tecumseh engine model 143.016706. I have included the link below for you to view the engine parts diagrams.


The air filter is reference number 245 on the 4-cycle Engine diagram. The part number was 36905 but has been substituted by the manufacturer. The new number is 30-031. I have included the link below for you to view and order the part.

I hope this answers your question. Thank you for choosing Sears, we appreciate your business.

Hi,

Thanks for contacting ManageMyLife. I understand how frustrating it is having trouble with your appliance not working.

It sounds like it is not getting enough gas to keep it running.   Is the gas fresh and is there any varnish covering the outlet of the gas tank?  Is the gas cap vent clogged?   Get some carburetor cleaner and remove the air filter and spray into the throat of the carburetor and see if the mower will run longer.

Also here is a video of the rebuild of a carburetor similar to your carburetor.  If you take the carb apart to clean it here is a kit for you to use. 

Please feel free to let me know if you need further assistance. We are always here to help.

Thank you for using ManageMyLife.com.

I have since found the problem, I believe. The aluminum dish in the gas cap was missing; found it in the gas tank. I would like to get a new cap, but I've tried 3 supposedly replacements that were too small. If I order the one that I found on line, part #37844 and it doesn't fit, I would like to return it, but the info says "not returnable"??? Will you please confirm that this is the right cap for my mower, before I "throw" my money away. Thank you, Tom

Tommy, I ran the motor model number 143.16706 and used item 301 fuel cap and this is the correct cap part number for the model engine. 37844. If it is the wrong part the item should be refundable throught the partsDirect web site even if it says non-returnable. Keep me posted.
