Question and Answers


My new Craftsman, model 917374051, will not start! It has oil, gas, and the operator bar is engaged. What am I missing?


When a product is new you have to draw the fuel through the fuel lines and carburetor to get it into the cylinder for it to start. This takes more priming and choking than the manual indicates.

The model number you sent doesn't pull up in our system so I am not sure if your product has a choke or not. If it does, choke it and pull the rope 10-15 times or until the engine sputters. Prime the carburetor 10-15 times as well. The first start is by far the most difficult.
