Did it sit for a long time with gas in it?

Your idle jet(s)/circuit is plugged up.

When gas sits too long, the components start to separate, and it turns almost into a varnish.
This starts to plug up the jets and passages, starting with the smallest, which happens to be the idle circuit and jet.

Clean out the carb, paying attention to the jet and the passage drilled in the carb body.

Starting 2640 john deere tractor deisel


engine wont start ??? yes you can try start fluid , but etreeme care needs to be taken using this on diesels as the fluid can act as a fuel (of course it can!!) and the engine can run away till its fluid supply burns off (too late!) use it in small doses !! me I use kerosene or my fav is paint thinner ,its a bunch safer and wont destroy the engine like st fluid can , if it sputters on st fluid and still wont stay running , then you have an injector/pump/supply problem , if it wont do anything at all when u crank it over then you have a pistion/valve/head problem

I think you mean it wont run after running out of gas. You may have to remove the spark plug and shoot a small shot of starting fluid in the hole and replace the plug. Cranking means turning the engine with the starter motor.

2009 31cc toro weed eater wont stay running. will fire and run at idle but wont stay running in 1,2,3 settings


get a can of starter fluid and a helper. Start the weed eater and then squirt enough starter fluid into the air intake to keep it running while you move it through the settings. This will rid your tool of the crud that is causing your problem. Joe

Dryer wont stay running


Chances are the motor switch is stuck (most likely)or the motor run circuit has failed (least likely but possible).
Disconnect unit from power and expose motor for thorough cleaning. Clean centrifigual switch sliding mechanism on motor shaft. It should move one direction under spring tension and spring back when released. Re-assemble and test.
