    when i pull i get a spark out of the spark plugs. i also poured some gasoline down the carbs and it seemed to help i can get it to start for about 5 seconds then it dies on me. im guessing that one of my gas lines are frozen so i may have to go to the store and get some heat. what do u think is wrong with it. It ran last year really good.

My skandic 550 will not start thawed it out! Put new battery! Tried pull start it very hard to pull


Will it turn over with the starter, what kind of sound did you hear? It's unusual to have any problems with the 550's how many miles are on it? You thawed it out was it buried and do you have it at room temp or at least above freezing? Options include starter engaged and not releasing, ice around the clutch making it hard to turn over, I doubt there is a motor problem, remove the drive belt and pull it over or remove the spark plugs and roll it over by hand it should free wheel

I think you mean it wont run after running out of gas. You may have to remove the spark plug and shoot a small shot of starting fluid in the hole and replace the plug. Cranking means turning the engine with the starter motor.

Ran out of gas wont start


Spray Ether (Starting Fluid with Upper Lubrication) into the Air Box and pull, the sled will start and the vacuum will get the gas into the lines. Quick sprays to keep it running as it starts to die, then squirt again..

ENGINE WILL NOT START


My power-washer suffers from same problem after sitting idle.

After paying for a new carburetor, I discovered how important it is to drain the gas if washer is going to sit idle.

Another time, we had a problem with the screen covering exhaust outlet. Deposits from the engine + dirt clogged the screen. Although it's not the solution for everybody, we broke the screen open with a screwdriver and the machine ran fine after that.

Small gas engines require 3 things. Compression, spark, and fuel. Take out spark plug. Put finger over spark plug hole and pull cord or push starter. Do you feel suction? If yes, then you have compression.

If machine will not turn over at all, then your motor might have run out of oil. Power washer needs oil in 2 places. It needs oil for the engine just like a lawn mower. Oil plugs are located low on each side of engine. It doesn't hurt to change oil, but do NOT NOT turn small engine upside down or oil will get into carburetor which requires removal and cleaning. I learned that the hard way.

The power washer also needs oil for the pump head. This is the box attached to front of engine. Usually 10W20 non-detergent is a good choice. Oil is usually about half way up inside pump head.

Now hook spark-wire back to spark plug. Hold spark plug in hand. Touch threads of spark plug to metal spark plug opening. Now pull cord or push starter. Do you see sparking in the spark plug gap? If yes, then you have spark. Put new spark plug in anyway. If no, then you need parts from small engine repair service.

Spark plug is in. Take off air filter so you have access to carburetor air intake. Put fresh gas in tank. Use starter spray or WD-40 as a starting accelerant. Set your choke to start engine. Spray starter fluid into carburetor opening and pull cord or push starter. The engine should fire up on the starter fluid. If engine doesn't fire, then try setting choke in different positions. If engine doesn't fire up then carburetor is suspect.

If engine fires but dies, keep spraying starter fluid into carburetor to see if you can keep it going that way ... and then move choke in different positions ... you might need extra hands for that maneuver.

If machine turns on, but dies when filter is put back, then filter might be clogged. Time for a new filter anyway.

Finally check the fuel filter and fuel line below the gas tank. It usually has a hex head bolt. Loosen bolt and see if fuel is able to fall out of tank. Loosen rubber fuel line at both ends and see if fuel is flowing. This will tell you if fuel can get to carburetor.

Usually these measures get the thing going or tell you if professional service is needed.

I think the bulb is blowing air and not fuel...wont start. How do I check for sure?


You could pull the spark plug and put some fuel or starter fluid in the cylinder, replace the spark plug and then try starting it. This will at least tell you if it is a gas issue. Good luck!
