I took scooter for a ride everything worked fine get back to garage and fuel is leaking out of carborator to which it drained the fuel tank. Do I need a new carb or what's the problem.


Jason, You can replace carburetor or have the old carburetor rebuilt to fix your gas leaking problem, either float is stuck or if carburetor equipped with a solenoid shut off, are the actual problem likely.
Check the attached links,instruction and guides, Good luck

Runs but will not carry a heavy load eng boggs down with load and voltage drops


The engine isn't getting enough fuel. Your carburetor needs cleaning. Generators are notorious for gummed carburetors because of the ethanol alcohol in today's gasoline and the generator sitting idle for weeks, months & even years without use wicks moisture into the fuel. Drain your carburetor of gasoline, & remove the carburetor. Clean your carburetor with Carburetor Cleaner spray & make sure the float needle valve & seat are clear of gum & varnish. To help prevent this from happening again, shut off the fuel petcock at the fuel tank and run the generator carburetor out of fuel before you put it away. It'll help keep the carburetor free of gunk. Also, replace the old fuel in the tank with fresh fuel every 3-6 months.

Starts and runs for short time then dies. The oil is overfull and smells like gas.. When you take the dipstick/cap out oil/gas runs out


Don't run it that way! Drain the oil....all of it. You have a flooding carburetor. Most likely a stuck float needle. Drain the gas out of it too for now. Unscrew the Bowl on the bottom of the carburetor AFTER you drain the gas. At the front of the bowl is a clip attatched to a small metal needle valve.Let the float hang down and spray with quick bursts some carburetor/choke aerosol spray cleaner upwards where the little clip holds the needle on. This may dislodge whatever, dirt or crud is not allowing the needle to seat all the way, once the bowl fills up with gas. It works JUST like the water fill valve in the tank of your toilet. Clean out the bowl of any water and debris. Clean the bolt that holds the float bowl on the carburetor. Do NOT scrape it with any metal objects.
If you don't want to work on the carb this way, then remove it, disassemble it and clean it well with carburetor cleaner. Depending upon the age of the machine, you may need to install a rebuild kit.

Lawn mower fires when fed fuel but won't stay on.


There could be water in the carburetor. To check to see if you have water in the carburetor you need to loosen the nut on the bottom of the carburetor (it helps to pinch off the fuel line to keep fuel from coming through the carburetor while you do this) and take off the fuel bowl and see what is in the carburetor. Most of the contents of the fuel bowl will drain out but there should be enough left to see if there is water or dirt mixed in with the fuel. When you take off the carburetor fuel bowl check to see if there is any corrosion on the carburetor. This may have a white, chalky appearance or if it is varnish from old fuel it will look like the carburetor has a "gold" appearance. The correct color of the carburetor is a dull or flat grey. If you find water in the carburetor bowl then there is a good chance that there is also some water in the fuel tank. You will need to drain the contents of the fuel tank. If you want to see what the fuel looks like you can drain it into a paint mixing cup or a clear jar. Start with a clean jar or cup, to make sure that you are seeing what is in the fuel and not what was left in the cup. lol. When you have drained the fuel tank and made sure there is no water in it, I would suggest putting fresh fuel back in the unit. See if the unit will start and run ok. If the unit pops or sputters while the engine is running there may be some more water that will come out after the unit is run for a little while. If the unit continues to not run or is not running very well you may have to clean the carburetor. To do this you will need a can of carburetor cleaner (spray) and a very thin wire to probe in all of the holes of the carburetor. First, take the carburetor loose from where it mounts to the engine. Then take the wire and probe all of the holes in the carburetor, and also the holes in the fuel bowl nut (if any are present). Then shoot the carburetor cleaner through the holes to remove any loose particles of dirt or debris and to make sure the passages are clear. After you have done this, then you will need to blow through the holes to make absolutely sure that everything is removed that could be blocking either fuel or air from passing through the carburetor. Re-install the carburetor back onto the engine, and check to see if the unit is running ok. If at this point the carburetor is still not running correctly, you may have to replace the carburetor. When you go to the parts counter you should have the MODEL, TYPE, and CODE off of the flywheel housing. These numbers are stamped into the metal.

Lawn mower runs as long as you spray gas into the carbuator , but stops when you stop adding gas.

I am having a hard time getting my yardman to start, how do you prime the mower?


This unit does not have a primer. It has a choke cable. If the unit does not want to start when you have the choke engaged you may need new fuel or need to clean the carburetor. There could be water in the carburetor. To check to see if you have water in the carburetor you need to loosen the nut on the bottom of the carburetor (it helps to pinch off the fuel line to keep fuel from coming through the carburetor while you do this) and take off the fuel bowl and see what is in the carburetor.
