Question about Garden
She has failed to start even after replacing spark plug and filling up with fresh gas. She attempts to accelarate but shuts down after several second. Can u help.Model # Craftman 247770110
Lots of the starting problems with 2 cycle engines (weed eaters, blowers, chain saws, etc) are caused by leaving them stored for long periods of time with the oil/gas mixture left in them. what happens is that a residue forms on parts in the carb.
Try the following: empty the fresh gas out of the blower. add a gas stabilizer to the existing gas you plan to put in the blower. You can get this stabilizer at any auto parts store. While you are there get a can of spray start fluid. Put the fresh, modified gas in the blower. Take the spark out and spray some starter fluid in the plug hole.Replace the spark plug and try to start the engine.It will probably take a few cycles of doing this to get the blower to stay running.
when you put the blower up for a long period, empty the remaining gas out then start the engine and run it till it stops. this gets the remaining gas out of the carb.
