SOURCE: pull cord wont pull,briggs 500 series

Pull the spark plug out and see if it isnt hydro locked. Someone might have overfilled the oil or the carb float may have stuck open and filled the intake with gas!

If the recoil is still stuck you can remove it from the mower and try it without any load on it. Still stuck? The unit might be rusted solid!
You can spray a little penetrating oil into it but be careful.....the oil will soak the pull cord which should be cleaned and degreased immediately following using the penetrating oil.

There is a tab on either side of the carburetor right where the primer bulb sits. You can depress both of these tabs with a screwdriver and pry out the plastic ring that holds the primer bulb in place. You can purchase a new primer bulb (with a new plastic tab) from a local mower shop or from a small engine repair shop. When you install the new primer bulb, put the rubber bulb in first then put the plastic ring on top and press it in until the tabs click on each side. It should work correctly after the tabs are clicked properly. You can take off the air filter and look into the carburetor to see if the unit is priming correctly. I hope this helps you out.

Hi mtedepew...

Sounds like you have dirt/debris in your carburetor jets or fuel passages.
Check/Clean/Replace your fuel filter if you have one.
Also make sure you are using fresh fuel...and oil mix if your using a two cycle mower or weedeater with the oil to the right mixture and not too much oil as it can cause hard starting.
If the mower/weedeater is over a year old, then I recommend that you buy and install a new carburetor repair kit,because the diaphragm will get hard and that will cause it to be hard to crank.
Sounds like you will need to clean the carburetor or replace your carburetor internal rubber parts like the diaphgram and O rings.
I recommend that you use a laquer thinner type cleaner to clean and dissolve the laquer build-up in the float and needle jet passages.
Be sure to remove all plastic and rubber parts before using the laquer thinner because it can dissolve the plastic parts and render them unuseable.
Be sure to use compressed air to blow out all the fuel and air passages.
Be careful when blowing out the passages, because there are sometimes small rubber type seats in the bottom of some of the passages.
Sometimes you can get by with priming the carburetor or using starting fluid and letting it run a few times like that and it will flush the gunk out of the jets,but most of the time you will need to rebuild the carburetor.
Keep in mind that the float for the carburetor must be level when you go to reassemble the carburetor or follow the instructions you get with the carburetor kit.
When you clean your carburetor and remove the jet screws, you will first need to lightly seat the jet screws.
But before you lightly seat the jet screws count the number of turns it takes to seat the jet screws from their original position.
Be sure to mark the turns down on a piece of paper.
That way when you put the jets back in, you know to lightly seat them first and then turn them back out to their orginal position before you started.
Once you have your carburetor rebuilt that should solve your problem.

Briggs and Stratton intek 900 Series 205cc It will starts but it wont stay running.


The usual cause for the problem you describe is related to fuel/
carburetion. Today's formulation of gasolines have a shelf life of only 4-6 months before they start gumming carburetor. Other forms of fuel contamination (dirt, water, etc) may also be the culprit. First step is to remove and thoroughly clean both the tank and carburetor. Reinstall. Install a small engine filter in the gas line when you reassemble. Use FRESH gasoline after you are ready to start your engine.

Weedeater 500 series briggs and stratton wont start. Makes a faint popping noise. it quit working after i hit a stick. Checked the flywheel key. it was fine


I'm curious on how you checked the key way. They cost about a dollar and I would change it anyway. The popping sound is typical of an out of time ignition. Thanks, George
