Question about Ariens 34 In. Zoom Series Riding Mower
If you keep priming it will run longer
First check your fuel, if it smells stale or smells like paint thinner, your carburetor may need to be cleaned. If the fuel smells ok then you'll need to take the bowl off the carburetor be careful of the bowl gasket, it will probably stay on but when you put the bowl back on be sure it seats evenly around. With the bowl off check to see if there is any water, debris or anything else that don't look like fuel. If your engine is a Tecumseh then you should also check the bowl bolt. Assuming it is a Tecumseh the bolt will be one of 3 different types but what you need to look for is the holes on the bolt, there will be 2 down by the head of the bolt and sometimes 1 real small one at the top of the threads (use a twist tie from a loaf of bread with the paper cleaned off to clean the little hole). If the little hole gets clogged the engine won't run. If everything looks good then put the bowl back on and try it. If there is stuff in the bottom of the bowl the you might want to take the carb . off and clean it and to bee on the safe side while it's off put a new carb. kit in (carb kits usually run about $10 to $15 dollars). Any questions on taking the carb. off, cleaning or rebuilding feel free to ask.
