Motor dies after burning off fuel prime

if it only runs on prime then it is starving for gas. take the gas hose off at the carburetor make sure gas comes out in a flow. if good flow. take off fuel bowl if you see any debris or water then you need to take off the carburetor and clean it really good with cleaner and put in a new needle and seat. make sure float moves easily. if you clean and install a carburetor kit it should run as it did new.

Homelite chainsaw will not start model #UT10822

Yep...You will also need to install at least a GND (gasket and diaphragm) kit if not a full carburetor repair kit. The fuel filter is probably clogged by now too. You may need to replace the fuel line(s).

Will start but when trigger is pressed stalls and stops

I have had that kind of problem myself many times. Its just one of those things that 2-stroke engines just seem to do at times. I always do the easiest possible problems first and then progress to the more involved and expensive problems next.

First: I'd recommend replacing the Fuel Filter, and the Air Filter. as Fuel Filter gets partially clogged it restricts the flow of gas to the carburetor, so when the trigger is pulled, it immediately is starved for gas and stops. When you replace the Fuel Filter always examine the fuel line for cracks or deterioration. Also, it is always a good idea to replace the Air Filter too. If after replacing the Fuel Filter, and the fuel line, if it needs replacement too, try starting the engine. If the problem persists, we'll move on to the next possible problem.

Second: The carburetor has two adjustable jets, one is typically marked High, and the other is Low. You will need a special tool that looks like a screw-driver that has a splined female end on the end, that will allow you to adjust the carburetor jets. If you don't have one of those tools it pays to get one... Amazon typically sells them for Poulon products (which is commonly used by Sears). Once you have the tool, slide it over each jet, with the engine off, and then CLOSE each jet until it is lightly snugged down, and keep track of where the tool is (I mark mine with a marker line on the tool's shaft), and slowly open each jet 2 turns. (with a 27 cc engine somewhere between 1-1/2 turns and two turns is a good starting point. I typically start with 2 turns to make sure there is good gas flow, and the engine will tend to run rich, but it should run.)

Once this is done, try starting the engine again.... Make sure it is idling well, and then pull the trigger, if it doesn't quit on you, you've solved the problem. The most you might need to do is slightly turn each jet in about an 1/8 turn to fine tune the engine mixture. If you close the jets too much, it won't run well again, and will starve for fuel again. Keep the jets balanced and it will serve you well.

Third: If that doesn't work either... Its time to get into the carburetor itself. I've tried rebuilding these carbs, and they are a pain, and by the time you purchase all the necessary ingredients, it costs more than the trouble is worth. I typically find an identical replacement carburetor from, Amazon, or even this site, etc. and just buy an exact replacement carb. Its fast, easy to replace, and will solve a host of problems, and you won't have to experience spending a day looking for one of those tiny rebuild-kit springs that flew across the garage floor. Don't ask me how I know this.

I hope this info helps you. Good luck....

I've been trying to start my car,but it does not turn over,fuel pump is O.K but no gas comes into the carburetor when I step in the gas pedal,is acting like the floater is stuck or something...

Hi aguicel68...
Check and make sure your fuel is making to the carburetor, by removing the fuel line from the carburetor, inserting it into a can that will hold gasoline and cranking over the motor a couple of turns to be sure the filter is not plugged
If not then I think your problem is a stuck inlet fuel float or you have a hole in the float causing it to seal the fuel off from coming into the carburetor.
Try to tap lightly the carburetor top bottom and sides with a small hammer around the fuel float area of the carburetor and see if that will loosen the float valve and needle if so then that cleared the problem.
If not then you will have to disassemble,rebuild or buy a new/rebuilt carburetor.
Please take time to rate me

31 cc leaf blower won't start. After many pulls it sounds like it might want to fire but only for about a second and then nothing.

This is probably a fuel delivery issue....carburetor related. My experience with these engines was that it needed the carburetor rebuilt. There are diaghram and rebuild kits available for these and at most you would maybe spend $15 for the kit. Rebuilds have more parts but diaghram kits sometimes cure the problem and cost less. All diaghram kit parts are included in a rebuild kit also.

I cant get my kids 49cc quad to start from new...can anyone help?

Check for spark, there may be a "Kill Switch" or a key somewhere that needs to be turned in order for the motor to run. If you turn the motor over with a spare spark plug in the plug wire touching the tip of the spark plug that is in the motor it should show a spark. (It is best to do this in the dark to see the spark clearly)

Look for a fuel valve that shuts off the flow of gas typically located between the gas tank and the carburetor. Some carburetors have a float bowl drain at the bottom so you can drain the gas out for storage. If your carburetor has a drain bolt you can unscrew it and see if gas comes out.

Check for a choke lever or pull knob either on the carburetor or sometimes on the handlebars. I have also seen a primer bulb on the two stroke carburetors that act as a fuel enrichment for starting a cold motor.

Since it is new we can assume it has compression but it doesn't hurt to check it. Remove the spark plug, place your finger over the spark plug hole and turn the motor, if there is good compression your finger will pop off from the pressure.

If you have good spark, good compression and gas in the carburetor bowl chances are your carburetor jets are clogged. I would spray a small amount of starter fluid or a small squirt of gas into the back side of the carburetor after removing the air filter. If it runs for a few seconds then stops the problem is in the carburetor but most often the motor will continue to run and just needed priming. If it does not run on it's own there might be some debree in the float bowl obstructing the delivery of fuel but that is very rare for a new carburetor

Yes it is time to buy a new carberator unless you know someone who can make and install bushings in the trottle plate shaft, and choke shaft. What normally happens over time is the shaft wears into the housing as it is being used which allows ecsessive air into the fuel air mixer which causes inproper run conditions and no matter how much you adjust all the settings you cannot overcome this condition so its either get new bushings made and installed or purchase a new carberator. Hope This Helps Don
