Q:

Craftsman Platinum 675 Series lawn mower B&S model # 37715. ruff idle and stalls

A:

Thank you for your question.

Usually when the mower starts and stalls, right away it has a dirty carburetor. First, make sure the fuel is no older than 5 weeks old. I would think the fuel is fresh this late in the mowing season. Next check the air filter. If the air filter is plugged the mower may not run. If the air filter is clean and the fuel is fresh, I recommend cleaning the carburetor.

To clean the carburetor you have to remove the spark plug wire and tip the mower on to its side. Make sure the oil fill tube is towards the ground. Then remove the float bowl nut on the bottom of the carburetor. Some fuel will leak out so do this in a well-ventilated area. Remove the float bowl, clean it with carburetor cleaner, and dry it. Do not get carburetor cleaner on the rubber gasket. The cleaner will expand the rubber and renders it useless. Next, put the straw on the spray nozzle of the carburetor cleaner. Spray the cleaner in to the holes where the float bowl nut came from. These are the fuel pick up tubes. Once those are flushed, clean the holes on the float bowl nut. I recommend cleaning the holes with bread tie wire and carburetor cleaner. Then assemble the carburetor.

Tip the mower back up right and test the operation. If the engine does the same starting and stalling, I recommend replacing the carburetor.

I had a customer send me a link to video he found that shows how to clean the carburetor. The engine is not exactly the same as yours but it will give you a general idea. Here is a link to that video

I hope this is helpful.

Q:

I have the belt on my walk behind lawnmower that keeps coming off...the mower is less than a year old

A:

Check the drive belt. If you used the mower often and the drive belt is worn out, then it will need to be replaced. This is not likely the problem unless the mower was used very frequently on a large lawn. If the belt is worn out, I recommend replacing it using the procedure described in your owner's manual. Here is a link for your owner's manual in case you need it: Owner's Manual .

Since the belt keeps coming off and the mower is less than a year old, you likely have a problem with the belt keeper on the drive system (if the belt is not worn out). I recommend that you carry the mower into a Sears Service Center for a repair on this system. The belt keeper will likely need to be replaced with a revised part (430458X004). The revised belt keeper should keep the belt from slipping off of the front pulley. This type of repair should normally be covered by the warranty.

If your belt does not have wear to the point where it needs to be replaced, you may be able to fix this problem with your mower quicker by ordering the revised belt keeper (part 430458X004) from the Sears PartsDirect website and replacing it yourself. The part only costs about $2.49 (not including tax, shipping and handling). Replacing it yourself could save you from having the mower in the shop for a while. I do not know the turnaround time for a mower repair at your local Sears Service Center. Replacing the belt keeper as shown in your owner's manual (page 16) should keep the belt from coming off. Even though it may cost you some money out of your own pocket for a repair that is normally covered by the warranty, this approach may be more convenient for you.
