Question and Answers


Snow thrower oil level conflict 917881050 Craftsman Snow thrower



Thank you for your question.


I am sorry you are having this problem with the snow blower. I will be happy to assist you. I looked up the specifications on the Briggs and Stratton engine model 20E114-0695-E1.  According to the spec sheet from Briggs and Stratton the oil capacity is 28 ounces. I posted a copy of the spec sheet below. Click on the sheet to enlarge it. I recommend making sure the engine is level when checking the oil. Then take the dipstick out and wipe it clean and thread it back in. Finally remove the dipstick to take the reading. Please let me know if the engine indeed uses 34 ounces. I will let the manufacturer know about the misprint.



I hope this is helpful.  Please let me know if you need further assistance.




Thank you for using Manage my life.
