Re: Problems starting G-Scooter
Initially and based on your description that it has not been used for some time, pls try:
check the sparkplug, clean, replace, verify spark;
verify any loose connection, wiring;
replace/drain stale gas;
if it is a two stroke engine, you may need to check that the 2T oil has not seeped to the bottom of the combustion chamber;
check/clean the carburetor;
verify that when you pull the starter cord, there is counter force; is it engaging the engine. This could be verified by removing the sparkplug and making sure the plug cap/wire is safely kept back, crank the engine (pull the starter cord) while keeping a finger covering the now empty sparkplug hole. If the starter cord is engaging the engine and there is sufficient compression, there would be tremendous pressure exerting on your finger.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information. Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.
A list of things I did to mine so have ago at all of these, although I havent got mine started :)
I have cleaned the carb, ive checked for a spark (yes), cleaned fuel tank and checked to see if it is getting fuel and it is, also reset the air/fuel screw 1 and a half turns to factory reset NOTHING :( and took spark plug out and put my thumb over the hole pulled the pull start and it feels like it has pressure.
Oh and yes I did put 2 stroke oil in the fuel !

You need to check that your automatic enricher (often called an auto-choke) is working. You should find then when the engine is cold, the scooter hasn't ran for at least an hour, the enricher will be short. Take it out of the carb and measure the plunger. Put it back into the carb. Then start the scooter and let it run for 5 minutes. Quickly remove the enricher, being careful around anything hot, and measure the plunger again. If there is no change, it's not working.

You should also check the condition of your spark plug. If it's fouled, damaged, or gapped wrong it could be making starting more difficult.
A battery in poor condition will also make it harder to start. Battery checks link below.
I have a manual for a 2001 mz charly electric scooter. The scooter folds down and you can carry it. Just checking to see if we are talking about same scooter. The book if have has the circuit diagrams.
