Check and make sure that the needle and seat are functioning properly along with the floats, make sure that there not sticking as well. If that doesn't fix it it is then possible that the carbs did not get cleaned good enough. Thanks, good luck.

Engine will start when gas sprayed in choke, but immediately dies, has new gas filter

With the limited information you have posted, no brand name or engine type .. here are a few possibilities: Out of gas .. Faulty 'electrical' fuel shut off solenoid on bottom of carburetor .. Faulty fuel pump .. Debris in fuel tank or carb .. Carburetor gummed up inside... Good luck!

I have a craftsman 21032 weedeater and it will not start. I have changed the plug checked for ignition cleaned the carb and checked if the valves are stuck. I have no clue what to do next

First check and make sure the gas lines are not cracked or rotted. This is very common. I assume you are getting spark if you checked the ignition. If the spark is good then it is a fuel issue or something internal

Won't start. Mower was in storage and unused for 2 yrs. Replaced spark plug. Still won't start.

bad gas...this "new gas" will last a few months. take the tank off, drain old gas out. if that doesnt solve it, the problem is in the carb. it will need to be taken apart and cleaned. next time use a product like staybil mixed in the gas, if its going to set for more than a month.

Leaking gas badly from carb. 2003 750 shadow spirit

The gas has varnished and turned to ****. You need to take it to a shop and have the carbs cleaned. Next time you decide to store the bike put fuel stabilizer in the tank and run the bike untill the stabilizer gets into the carbs. When you want to store it, turn the gas off and let the bike run all the remaining gas in the carbs out. That is your best bet. Chaz Moto DC

My dirt bike won't fire it's a 1992 suzuki rm125 it has spark compression. but it's not getting gas the carb won't shoot out gas it shoots out air the ring on the screw on the bottom is shot.

is gas getting to the carb? check in line fuel filter if you have one. make sure fuel shut off valve on tank is working properly. if you are getting fuel to the carb, try cleaning it and making sure the jets aren't plugged up.

Cannot start lawn mower model YP5HY22CA (Honda)

Clean the carb with some carb cleaner this will solve your issue at hand. When you go to store the lawn mower make sure to add some fuel additive in the gas to keep the fuel from gumming up in the system

Not getting enough gas to the carb have to run choke 3/4 engaged

Sounds like a restriction in your carb, not getting enough gas. I would clean out the carb again.

Poulan 6.75 Lawn mower will not start

Remove spark plug, clean and dry. Replace plug. Remove air filter. Spray WD-40 into carb opening; one second blast. Turn over engine, (pull handle). Engine should start briefly and run for 3 seconds.  If not, you are not getting spark to spark plug. If engine starts, you have a dirty carb and you can buy a rebuild kit from manufacture.
