Probably have a needle or float sticking, I recommend carburator overhaul. Buy a kit from an aftermarket company or the dealer. Or take it in the shop. You could take it apart blow it out use gum out to clean all parts put back together and re-test.

What position should the fule petcock be in when running. vertical or horizontal?

It can depend on the type of bike but usually verticle or down. Straight down (6 o'clock position) -- Normal
- keep at normal position when bike is on and off unless special circumstances require use of the following two positions.
3 o'clock position -- Prime
. - use if you need a steady unrestricted gas feed/flow, usually used when there's trouble starting or gas line was disconnected, etc...basically whenever you feel there's need to use it ( beware it can flood the engine as well as leak if left on too long
9 o'clock position - Reserve
. - usually used when running low on gas, helps get the last bit of gas to make it to a gas station....ive also used Prime in some instances when I ran low on gas and the bike wasnt getting enough gas in the normal position.

Hope this info helps,
safe riding - Shays

Why does my ccm 644 keep floading,had carbs off 2,3 times,i get it to stop,put the bike away for a week or so,go back to bike,try starting it and the carbs start flooding again,need help thankscarbs...

I think this may be another one of those faults due to the ethanol and other **** in modern fuels.
There is so much rubbish in petrol the stuff just wont keep also ther have been a lot of problems with the stuff rotting fuel lines this may be your problem, the float needle may be getting stuck by particles of fuel line.

I think your talking about an Overflow gas tube that keeps your enging from flooding from too much gas, your carb may need a little adjustment so you stop dumping gas.

The normal and economy lights are blinking and cannot get to wash through a full cycle. water is in the bottom of the washer

You will have to check if the dishwasher is stuck in the drain cycle or wash cycle.

The normal and economy lights flashing means there is flooding in the unit.

Reset the unit by pressing START button for 4 secs. If the flashing does not stop then you have to call the technician. There may be a leakage which is causing the flood switch to activate.

I am leaking fuel by the carbs and it is not running right when i park it i forget to turn the fuel off would that cause it to not start

sounds like worn needle and seats and bike is flooding,bike should have a vaccuum operated fuel tap which turns off fuel when stopped but tap may have failed and this can also cause flooding

Small amount of gas in rear air filter compartment.Changed out old degraded foam air filters for new K&N Filters

The carbs spit back a little fuel normally and sometimes they'll flood over and stop flooding as the engine shakes but the air filter should dry off as the motor runs. or the gas is real old? Does the bike run OK?

Oil light on - bike won't start

I will guess that your bike cut off when you put it in gear because you still had the kickstand down. That is normal, it is a safety feature to keep you from riding away with it down and crashing when you make a left turn and the kickstand hits the ground.

To check your oil you have a sight glass. Stand the bike straight up and down and have someone look in the sight glass, it is probably on the lower part of the bike on the right side. The oil level should be above the middle, but not covering the whole glass.

Try this process. Go out to the bike, turn on the key and put it in neutral. Check your kill switch, make sure that is in the run position. Now try and start the bike and report back with what happens.
Does it turn over but won't start?
Does it refuse to turn over?
Do the lights come on the instrument cluster for a few seconds, then go out except for the low oil pressure light (normal for that to stay on unless the bike is running.

Keeps flooding

The carbs need a full cleaning....use piano wire of the right size for the jet holes.....Carb cleaner and compressed air to blow out the fragments.
