Turn your thermostat off, if still running ,then the contactor is stuck in close or run position, the thermostat controls the open & close of the contactor coil.. Replace the 24volt contactor on the outside unit and your problem is solved!

My briggs and Stratton Intel 206, 5.5 hsp, was running fine, began to lower rpm until finally quit, oil and gas ok, cleaned jets, no change? Could it be a governor or linkage issue.

I would check Spark & Compression with Compression tester! This goes into the same place where the spark is& Compression should be above 70 if not the engine is no good. Let me know.

Will not stay running

Very small 2 strokes need lots of compression,so keep the oil mix high,even as low as 22 to 1,should be 25 to 1,but take care mixing.scrape out all the oil and mix thoroughly.Each pull of the rope should be quite hard,and you should really feel each compression.if motor keeps on turning by itself after you've stopped pulling,it means compression poor,replace barrel,piston

Hi. I have recently bought a GT380, however, it's not running right. It starts fine and runs, but only on 2 cylinders. Carbs have all been ultrasonically cleaned, take the plug out and lay it on the head...

just coz you put youre thumb over the hole and you have compression does not mean that you have good compression find out what the maximum pressure is supposed to be and get a porper compression tool.
oil from the exhaust is odd i think this could be v/v guides but it would not explain why exhaust is not getting hot.

Quit running

In short your engine will require 3 things to fire, spark/timing of, fuel, and compression. Check the easiest 1st, pull a plug wire and check for spark, if there is spark crank the engine over a few times more then remove a spark plug, if there is fuel on plugs you have gas flow and injector pulse, now check compression if there is good compression you should have good timing. Please check the above and let me know waht you do / do not have, from there we can narrow it down and get you an answer. Could very well be a crank sensor or such, until you narrow it down, the possibilities are endless.

Please let me know and I'll try to help,

Yz450f that quit running

Yes, it does have an automatic decompression mechanism. It is a centrifugally operated mechanism and it is EXTREMELY unlikely that is causing your problems.
The two highest probabilities are:
1. Fouled spark plug. Forget what it looks like, put a BRAND NEW plug in. It is the cheapest form of diagnosis you can do. These bikes are terrible about fouling spark plugs and a fouled plug produces the exact symptoms you described.
2. Inspect your valve clearance. Tight valves will also make the bike hard/impossible to start with the kick starter. In some cases, it can be push started, but still won't kick. With tight valves, the bike, although hard starting, will run pretty good, for awhile. Eventually it will burn the valves and quit running though.
If your bike isn't kick starting fairly easily, something is wrong and needs to be addressed. The only other issue is making sure the idle speed is set per the service manual. These bikes have a fairly high idle, some as high as 1700 rpms. If it is set too low, it makes them hard to start too.

Engine will not stay running


When the engine stops check the spark at the spark plug.Check compression(remove the spark plug and ground the plug wire on the engine,seal the plug hole with your thumb.Operate the starter.If the compression preasure blows your thumb off the hole,the compression is adequate for the engine to run.Now priming the engine(put some gas into the spark plug hole,back the spark plug and try to start the engine.Let me know. savumihai71 regards
