Having problems with your Craftsman Vacuums ?

I have a Craftman 5hp snowthrower model 53688501 that will not start. It will fire with gas down sparkplug hole, but runs only untill that gas is burned up. Fuel is present at carb, but I noticed that there are two brass fittings on each side of the carb for vacume lines or something, and they have no lines connected to them. Did I lose the lines that should be connected? Or do I have some other problem. The unit is 4 years old and has the Briggs and Stratton eng model 9A413-0202-E1


Answers :

This sounds like the carburetor needs disassembled and cleaned. This happens over time and the tiny orifices plug up. Usually from letting gas set in them for extended periods of time and it gums up. If you are not familiar with them, I would take it to your nearest small engine repair shop.

I have a Kenmore Progressive model 116.22812204 purchased 2003. The swivel (part nuumber 8195133) that attaches the extension wand to the power mate attachment snapped, so I can't keep the parts connected. I can order a replacement part on-line, but I don't know how to replace it - is it difficult to take apart the power-mate and replace this part? Do you have instructions on how to do it? Thanks!

I am in ecuador and have had a local "plumber" install a lpg tankless water heater for me. After more difficulty than there should have been it's up on the wall with the water and gas lines attached but it won't light. There are 2 "c" batteries installed that seem to be the ignition system but when i turn on the gas and try to ignite the system nothing happens. No lights no sound no gas smell no hot water. Thoughts?


The system is ignited by turning on a hot water faucet causing water to flow through the unit activating the igniter.You could disconnect the gas line at the unit turn the valve on and off real quick and smell for gas.If there is air in the line you ... Vacuums

At first when I tried starting my B & S I primed the motor and it ran for a few seconds and died. This happened twice. I drained the tank and took apart the cvarb and blew out the entire carb. Put it back together changed the plug and now nothing. Could it be that the priming diaphriam (#694395) has a hole and thus preventing gas to come up from the carb bowl?
