Tip & How-To about Garden
Do you have a push mower, leaf blower, string trimmer, etc. that wont run; and you dont know which direction to go to fix it? The majority of problems are fuel related and this is a fast, easy way to determine if it is or not.
Start be removing the air filter and verifying that the choke is open ( run position). Then, spray a shot of carb cleaner ( available at any auto parts store, wal mart or dollar general) into the throat of the carb. Attempt to start the unit. If the unit hits on the prime ( starts and runs briefly on the carb cleaner) then the problem is fuel related. You should check your fuel ( water or stale), fuel lines and filter, and carb. If the unit does not hit on a prime then you should start checking your ignition system and compression.
