Sounds like you have a sticking float in your carb that is letting the fuel leak through the carb and into your motor. You need to remove the carb and clean and check float and drain the oil and replace with new.

When you run out of gas, you sometimes ruin
the fuel pump,it needs fuel to lube it
Check fuel pressure at motor or have a repair
shop look at the pump motor with an oscilloscope,
to see if the motor is ruined or won't pump gas
You could also have other issues & the fuel pump &
gas issue is just a coinidence
Check for codes

My heil n9mp2 isnt working just hums

is the flame igniting and then cutting off? on a gas furnace, the induction fan motor(draft motor) should start first (if the furnace is so equipped), then the flame, then the blower. if you have an induction motor (flue gas exhaust mmotor) this may be your problem (the induction motor isn't starting), if your unit doesn't have one, have you checked to see that you have gas? finally, the capacitor on the blower motor may be causing the motor not to start.

Why does it idle fine and then when you give it gas it boggs down

A two-stroke engine idles because a very small hole behind the throttle plate lets a tiny amount of gas through to keep the engine running. At full throttle the air moving through the carburator pulls gas through the venturi vaporizing it. With the motor at idle, if you give the motor full throttle very fast the first charge or two that get into the cylinder are almost completely fresh air with vary little or no gas mixed in. It takes a revolution or two for the motor to pull air through the carburator fast enough to get a fully charged mixture of gas and air into the cylinder so you get full power. This effect is especially pronounced when the motor is cold, the gas doesn't vaporize as well when the motor parts are cold. If you give it throttle slowly or let it warm up the effect should go away.

How much gas to oil ratio to run generator or straight gas

Check for a crankcase with oil in it on the motor...if you have oil in the motor already then you do not need to mix it in the gas...
I am very sure that you will find this motor does not need the gas mixed...
Run straight gas... usually it is good to run Prem in small motors..

P8- Abnormal temp of out door. If new unit, check gas pressure, may be over charged. Release some gas. If existing a/c, check condenser coil- dusty- clean it. Check f.motor- less rpm-replace capacitor. F.motor mechanism locked- replace motor. If above all o.k., non-condensate gas inside. Release all gas, flush out, replace filter drier and vacuum. And do gas charging. Thanks, helpful.

No heat blower motor no working

Okay, I think we need to back up a bit here. I need to know, first, if the dryer ignites. This is a GAS dryer, correct? I need to know if the igniter is glowing, and if you can hear the gas start flowing when you have ignition. If not, this could be a simple igniter or gas coil problem. If there is ignition and the drum is turning, do you have air flow coming out of the dryer vent exhaust? If there is air flow, you cannot possibly have a blower wheel problem. We need to rule out some possibilities before we start disassembling the dryer. I'm a bit miffed as to why someone would tell you that the motor was the problem. Since I was not there, I need to know as many symptoms that you can provide, so I can give you with a correct assessment.
