Check your owners manual. If it calls for 32:1, you need to add a bit more oil to the gas you have mixed. Put a few drops in the tank as well. You should not have to clean out the fuel system. Will not be the reason your machine does not start.

Most of the small outdoor power equipment that I have used takes the following to start:

1. Prime 6-8 times, or whatever the manual calls for.

2. Choke the carb to full choke.

3. Pull starter rope. It may sputter and die.

4. After it sputters and dies, put the choke on 1/2. Pull a time or 2 more and should start. Run like that 10 seconds or so, then take choke all the way off.

That fuel/oil mix ratio should be 32to1 or 32 ounces gasoline to 1 ounce oil. You will have to make up a new mix and probably clean the fuel system and the spark plug before it will start.

Won't start


May have moisture in the fuel. Try draining the old fuel out, put in new, add Stabil, or some other fuel stabilizer, clean & gap plug. Should start.

Ran great sat. but would not start sun. same gas changed plug air filter gas soaked with it off still not running tried putting gas in spark plug hole still not running this is a craftmans 2 cycle leaf...


Were you running a fuel mixture of 40:1(3.2 oz of 2 cycle oil to 1 gal of gas), that you mixed up before you started using it again. The unit may have had to much use on Saturday and may be burned up. Try to have a compression test done on the engine, needs to be at least 100 psi to run. If that proves to be good then you can start looking at Fresh gas mixture, a new spark plug, Carburetor rebuild or an ignition module.
