Use some "Sta-Bil" in the gas. Use more than suggested as well.

Will not start without priming the carburator, and then only run for a few seconds

It's not getting fuel thru the carberator another solution is the needle is stuck sometimes after it sets over the winter the needle ( which has a rubber end ) sticks closed

Briggs & Stratton 4 cycle Lawnmower engine no fuel from carberator. Fuel is being supplied to carberator but only runs when starting fluid is used. Gas is new. What's clogged?

the float may be gummed up. or the needle is plugged up.
you need to clean the carburetor, old gas left in the carburetor turns
into shellac and gums up in side. you need to take it apart and clean it.

I have a 97 f3 that sat for 6 weeks. Now it will not start. It turns over with no problem, but no spark. Ran great all summer without any issues. So far, I have replaced the spark plugs...what are the next...

well ive fixed this problem multiple times with my bike it definantly sounds like your carbs need to be cleaned, when u leave a bike sitting for a while and leave gas in the bike it will clog up your carberators once those are cleaned the bike should start right up

Hi there,i have a mcculloch tm210 petrol strimmer and the problem is that it will not start,i have noticed that the fuel primer bubble dose not come back out.please can you advise.

clogged fuel line or carberator. my weedeater did this at the first of the season. i took off both lines going to the gas tank and blew on each line separately while holding throttle open on carberator. i felt the clog go thru and put back together, poured a little gas in intake and it started right up and the primer worked right. good luck

127 cc briggs and stratton engine starting problems

  1. A few things, some you may have already looked at so if you have great.
  2. Fouled Spark Plug. Check, clean or replace.
  3. Clogged Air Filter, Check, clean or replace.
  4. Fuel, check fuel screen/filter, fuel lines for damage, wear, blockage lines get weak with age and colapse cutting of fuel supply.
  5. Linkage, check choke linkage intact and working freely.
  6. Check carberator float making sure that it's operating freely.
I hope that the list of checks help you. Thanx for using fixya, good luck and a good week. Jeff

Think carberator is clogged up dont know how to clean

now days some of these carbs prices are reasonable enough to just replace it and be done with it. i would get my model, type, and code #s or whatever is on the motor, then call and price the carb

Honda 8HP GX240 willnot start after working fine.

Your carberator has crud, or rust, or glaze in it. The carberator will have to be removed, soaked in cleaner for three hours and then rebuilt using the proper carberator kit from any auto parts store. If you need to hire this done expect to pay about 35 dollars.

Lawnmower starts when primed only then stops

You take the air filter off from carberator (three bolts). There is a bowl with a nut underneath. With socket wrench take bolt off and remove bowl. there are some small holes on the bolt and carberator. Take a twisty tie, like to tie up garbage bags, and run the wire in and out of the small holes. Spray a bit of carb cleaner for good measure.

Put it all back together but don't forget the gasket between the carb and the filter assembly.
