Engine starts but wont stay running!


Sounds like a dirty carb. Before you do anything if there is a cup on the bottom of the carb remove it and clean it out really well and clean the fuel jet. The jet may be partially plugged. Any dirt will prevent the engine from working properly. When taking it apart make sure you don't lose parts out of the float area. There should be a bot on the bottom of cup. remove it and your jets should be in the bottom of that bolt itself.

Engine starts easily, but doesnt stay running. removed fuel cap, still the same, pulled off fuel line, its not plugged. With the air cleaner off if I spray in starting fluid it keeps running, but will stop...


sounds like a fuel problem in the gas tank or carb. If bad gas or debris gets into the carb fuel bowl, this will fowl up or clog the jets after you start to run your engine. you need to remove your carb and clean the fuel bowl and jets. use a jet carb cleaner to do this. without knowing what type of engine, make sure all ur jets are clean. use a fine wire to insure they are clean and put te carb back together. also check and clean the fuel valve area of the carb, the fuel line, and the fuel tank. never use last years gas and always run your equipment out of gas before you store it for the winter.

It won't stay running


You need to either clean the carb really good (take it apart) or rebuild it or both. Sounds like your needle is gummed up and not letting fuel through.

Trimmer won't stay running without starter fluid


drain any old gas/fuel mixture out of unit.
purchase new gas and mix with oil as recommended for your engine.
clean the air filter on the unit.
pull the spark plug and clean with carb spray and reinstall...

you also may need to remove the carb and clean any jets with carb spray... old gas can turn into a shellac'ish type goo and foul up the works...
I recommend draining all fuel after usage...

Won't stay running


The carbeurator needs to be cleaned and probably rebuilt. Start with a spray carb cleaner by putting 3 or 4 shots in the carb. Run it for a minute then let it sit for two hours and run it again.
