You will have to reset them to allow the correct amount of gas in the float chambers.

Why does my keihin carburater leak gas from a hole in the bottom


Hi, 315 and the usual suspects are:
1. Damaged or restricted fuel tank venting system.
2. Loose float bowl screws.
3. Damaged float bowl o-ring.
4. improper fuel level in the float bowl.
5. Worn or dirty inlet valve or seat.
6. Damaged or leaking float assembly.
7. Particle contamination in inlet fitting cavity.
Good luck and have a nice day.

I have a Sears Eager 1 self propelled mower.. the Carb float was not shutting off the fuel gas was running into the engine and out the carb. I took the Carb apart. the needle and seat looked fine so I...


If there is freedom of movement for the needle, then look towards the float. Does the float have any fuel in it? If so, it will not rise properly to move the needle to shut off flow to the carb which will cause the flooding you are observing. If no fluid in float, you mentioned that you raised the float a little, should have gone the other way. By lowering the float it will seat the needle at a lower level in the bowl. Ensure that the needle seat is properly installed. If this does not solve the problem, purchase a new float.

Note: The model number of the mower is not helpful here. What is required is a model number and brand for the motor.

H do I reset all the codes and establish a new one on a Kwikset 909 909-L03 Lifetime Polished Brass Smart Code SmartCode.


This link will take you to the PDF image of the installation and programming instructions:

(PDF files require that you have Adobe Reader or similar installed on your computer

It's a good time to replace the batteries while you're reprogramming. Please review each step carefully, because it's easy to goof up this programming process, if you don't follow the procedure properly.

Good luck!

Hi and welcome to FixYa. I am Kelly.

Does it sound like it is running rich (Black smoke) or lean can not reach normal speed)?


In either case. Here is how to clen the carb properly:

Before you start.... if you have a digital camera take "close up" PICTURES of the linkages and springs attaching to the carb. If this is your first time you will be so glad you did. You can always delete them later if you don't need them. :)

Here is what you need to do:

1. Fuel selector off
2. Remove float bowl mounting screws and nut
3. Remove the BRASS Jet / Orifice in the very bottom of the venturi tube inside the pickup tube. (Flat blade screwdriver) Hold the Orifice up to the light. You should see a pinhole. If it is not clear clean the orifice but do not force anything through the hole.
4. Underneath the Orifice there is yet another BRASS tube that you need to remove. (Flat blade screwdriver) Make sure all of the holes in the tube are clear. The tube will be over 2 inches long. Clean it and reinstall it.
5. Reinstall the Orifice.
6. Using a catch fuel container turn on the fuel selector. Fuel should flow at a good rate. GENTLY lift the float assy level and make sure fuel flow shuts off. When you drop the float again fuel should flow.
If you do not have fuel flow at this point the needle and seat will need to be inspected. Fuel selector OFF.
(The following procedure is to be done only if there is no fuel flow with fuel selector on.)
a. Remove the silver float pivot pin retaining screw
b. Drop the Float down (The needle will come off with the float. NOTE the position)
c. Inspect the tapered rubber of the needle If should be pointed. If it is not pointed then the rubber tip is stuck inside the seat.
d. Clean the seat hole ONLY if obstructed. (Easily damaged)
e. FUEL Selector on then off fuel should rapidly flow through the needle seat.
f. Renistall Float and needle making sure to get the pivot / hinge pin installed correctly and reinstall the silver retaining screw.
g. Fuel selector ON. Raise and lower float checking for free movement with fuel flow when lowered and stopped when the float is raised level.

NOTE if fuel does NOT stop when float is level you will need to bend the float tab (tab up if level is too high or tab down if level is too low) where the needle attaches to the float assy until it does.

7. If there still is no fuel flow at this point remove the fuel hose from the carb and check fuel flow. If no flow check that gas tank exit hole, fuel filter (if installed) and the selector valve assy for obstructions.

Reassemble connections.

FUEL FLOW IS GOOD

Step 8 is VERY important"

8. BEFORE you install the float bowl inspect the bowl nut. There are 2 holes in the side of the nut where it screws in to the bottom of the carb that must be clear.

9. Install Float bowl mounting screws and nut. Check for leaks.

10. Test engine.

That should do it.
