Your carbeurator is dirty. Try adding some carbeurator cleaner to the fuel. usually about one ounce per gallon. Go to any auto parts store and they will show you what products will clean your carbeurator.

    good if you can start the bike and you have new gasoline in the tank, purchased now, not last fall, and you put the carbeurator cleaner in the tank, about one ounce per gallon, then as you drive around the fuel mixture will clean the carbeurator for you.

Most likely the carb is clogged with old gas. normally caused from letting the gas sit without running the bike for a while

Cub Cadet has gas, has spark, has air -still won't start/run


Are you pulling the plug to check for wetness after cranking it a few times, WITHOUT using the starting fluid? Also, I would recommend using carb cleaner in place of the starting fluid. Starting fluid runs the engine VERY hot for a brief time and can possibly damage rings, valves, and aluminum parts.

I start the scooter up fine and when i let it idle it just cuts out same when i rev the throttle what is the problem here


Condensation from inside the gas tank has probably made it's way into the carburetor. There is probably a drain screw on the carb float bowl. Drain the bowl, let it refill with gas, then see if the problem has gone away. Also, it may be time for a new spark plug. If none of that works, remove the carb then remove th float bowl from the carb and clean the carb with spray carb cleaner. Spray into every little hole in the carb. Below is a generic diagram.

I have a briggs and straton 3750 portable generator. it had be sitting in the garage for a year and a half with gas in it and the full switch on. i needed it a couple of days ago and it would not start. ...


Spraying carb cleaner into the carb doesn't clear the gummed gas that is clogging the supply of gas to the carb. Remove all of the gas. Put a little fresh gas and carb cleaner (about 50/50) in the tank. Try to get that to run (spray more carb cleaner or instant start into the carb to help it start - you might have to do that a couple of times). If it does start, let it run out of gas then refill the tank. If that doesn't work remove the bowl from the carb and clean the float valve and the mixture valve.
Good luck, Al K

I have a craftsman DLS 3500 and my son put 2 part mixed gasoline in it and now it will not start. What should I do?


disconnect the fuel line at the carb and let it drain into something, then remove the screw(bolt) in the center of the fuel bowl and let the gas drain out...once it all removed, put the screw back in and hook the line back up..then remove the spark plug and use carb cleaner or something similar to clean the plug ...before you stick the plug back in after you have clean it, turn the engine over a few times to expel the gas oil mixture....refill the tank and try and start as normal...its probably going to some for a little while till all the oil is burned off


good luck

Wont stay running


the problems is in the carburetor, common problems when unit does not run often and rust get get build up. get some automotive carburetor cleaners and spray it heavy in the carb, don't worried about flooding it or damaging anything, it will dry out faster than gas. (use little gas if you need to) try to start it up and get it running with the carb cover off and continue to spray carb cleaner in the carb while the engine is running, do this couple of time and hope that would clear it out. if that don't work you will need to take it apart and clean it. you have small tiny object obstructing the carb flow. the unit doesn't have a fuel pump, it run on gravity feed, the carb are easily obstructed. hope that help a bit

Would not continue to run tries to start, but no gas flow


the formula of modern gas does not have a long shelf life. it loses a lot of its properties quickly and has a tendency to eat older rubber components.remove you carb and cln. ck the fuel lines for deterioration and instal new fuel.when storeing its best to drain the fuel sys completely including th carb bowl. after draining spray with a light coat all carb parts you can see with the bowl off. WD 40 will work and this will help keep corrosion at bay

Husqvarna 51 chainsaw wil start up and run as long as I keep givig it gas but as soon as I let go of the trigger it dies. I tried turning the idle up but it does not make a difference. It was very recently...


First, check the fuel lines for cracks/breaks.

If they are o.k.,then you will need to disassemble the carburetor again and spray with carb.cleaner. Make sure the small screen in the carb. is free of debris. Usea Den Tek Brush, (http://www.drugstore.com/products/prod.asp?pid=165357&catid=1152), to clean the small portals in carb. These portals can become blocked. Reassemble and start.


If you need further assistance, just let me know.

XR 70. Idles fine. Won't throttle up just dies. Changed Plug, gas, cleaned carb...what am I missing


ALWAYS have a fire extinguisher at hand when working on carburetors.
Remove the water trap bowl at the bottom of the petcock, (gas valve). Is there any water or trash in the bowl? Drain a cup of gas from the tank. Is there any water or trash in the cup? Dump it, clean it and re-mount it, ( not all bikes have a water trap bowl ).

Drain the carburetor. There should be a screw on the lower side of the carb float bowl. Remove the screw then replace it after the fuel drains. Turn the gas back on and wait a minute for the carb to fill with gas. Install a new stock NGK spark plug and try to start the engine. If the bike doesn't start and run properly then shut off the gas and remove the carburetor from the engine.

Remove the float bowl and clean the entire carb with a spray carb cleaner from the auto parts store. Wear protective goggles to avoid getting spray in your eyes. Spray into all the little airways and fittings in the carb. Remove the idle screw and the air screw on the outside throat of the
carb and spray into the screw holes as well.
< < READ CLOSELY > >
Be sure to put these two screws back in the same hole they came out of. IMPORTANT > do not tighten these two adjusters down. Only screw these in until they LIGHTLY seat. Now turn each adjuster one and one half turns outward. Before putting the slides back in the throat of the carbs, move the clip on the jet needle one notch lower. Put the rest of the
carb back together, clean the air filter and install the carb. Let the float bowl fill then start the engine. This process should get you back on the road.
