Question and Answers


Model 917388480 runs rich . Is there an adjustment or how to fix ,


The carburetor on your engine is non-adjustable. Based on your symptom it sounds like the automatic choke is not opening completely within the carburetor. This type of repair will require a service technician. The carburetor will likely need to be replaced.

If your mower is less than two (2) years old from the date of purchase then I would return the mower to any Sears store, Parts and Repair Center or other Craftsman outlet for free repair (or replacement if repair proves impossible).

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 .
