SOURCE: saw quits running after about 30 minutes

Sorry, I should of asked for the symptoms. IE was it doing this before? Would it start? Will it rev up to full speed? Check your air gap between the magnito (coil) and the flywheel. A cover of a note pad or a piece of cardboard from a pack of cigarettes will get you the correct air gap. Place it between the flywheel magnets and the magnito arms then tighten your magnito down into place. If this does not do it, it time for a new magnito. What is happening is thier is a hairline crack in the circuit board in the magnito and when it gets hot it seperatates the connection and no spark.

SOURCE: Mower will not stay running unless primer button

The tube in the bottom of the carb. is probably clogged. Remove the carb, and bowl and try spraying WD-40 through the tube, it should spray into the venturi if it doesn't try using a tip cleaner to unclog the tube.

SOURCE: weedeater lawn mower shuts off, but still has 3/4 tank of gas

On some mowers...if the gas cap vent is not working properly, it will run fine for about 15 or 20 minutes, start spitting and sputtering, if you loosen the cap, and let air back into the tank it starts running normally again.

You cannot flood the engine by pushing the primer bulb too much, unless the hoses are hooked up backwards. The primer does not push gas to the carb, it sucks gas through the carb and returns it to the tank. Top barb on primer is the hose coming from the return side of the carb and the bottom fitting is the hose going to the return fitting on the tank. Look inside tank, it is the one without the filter on it, just a flange with a hole in the center.

If you can see gas and air bubbles moving through the primer and into the tank the hoses are on correctly. If you see bubbles going in the correct direction and then reversing when you remove your finger from the bulb, then the check valves in the primer may be bad. Replace primer.

When you say the primer "gets hard to mash", do you mean it is hard to push in or is it very slow to refill and return to the home position? If it is hard to push in and the bulb is full of gas and the hoses are on correctly then there must be a plug in the line going to the tank or the vent in the gas cap is not working. If it does not return, then it is most likely a plugged filter, plugged line from the tank to the carb, plugged screen inside the carb or a stuck needle valve. The primer is creating a slight vacuum to pull the gas through the carb, which is what the carb does when the engine is running. If there is a full or partial restiction on the supply circuit neither the primer nor the carb can pull enough gas for the engine to run. May need to disassemble carb and clean out any varnish, gunk or plugged ports/jets. Use spray carb cleaner. May want to think about a diaphagm and gasket kit if you do it yourself. If you do not feel confident in taking apart the carb, then take to a repair shop.

This is without question the most common problem for this type

product. The reason the unit shuts off is that the carburetor can

not deliver the proper amount of gas for the amount of air that the

engine needs. If the carburetor is less than two years old you

might just need a carburetor adjustment but because of

environmental regulations, the government does not want you to

adjust your carburetor. To adjust current carburetors you will

need to have an authorized servicing dealer remove the limiters on

the carburetor or you will need a special tool to make the

adjustments. If your carburetor is more than two years old you will

most likely need to clean and rebuild the carburetor. The

carburetor has two functions in supplying fuel to the engine.

There is a fuel pump side of the carburetor which takes a pulse of

air from the engine to supply a small amount of fuel to compensate

for the extra demand when you pull the trigger. The other side of

the carburetor is the metering side.
This side meters the fuel for the high speed needs of the engine.

When an engine starts and goes dead it is because the engine is

getting just enough fuel to start but not enough to keep the engine

running. The cause of a lack of fuel can be many things. It can be

a clogged fuel filter, it can be a crimped fuel line or a cracked fuel

line allowing the fuel system to **** air. Inside the carburetor it

can be hard or stretched diaphragms, a clogged inlet screen or a

build up of trash and varnish in the carburetor. To properly

rebuild a carburetor you need to remove the carburetor and

purchase the correct kit for the rebuild. disassemble the

carburetor carefully making notes where each parts go. Once you

have the carburetor disassembled clean it by soaking it in

carburetor cleaner for a few hours. Use canned aerosol

automotive carb spray cleaner to fill a small glass jar with enough

cleaner to submerge the carburetor. Use a jar with a metal lid so

you can gently agitate the solution occasionally to make the

process more effective. You need to allow the carburetor to soak

as long as it needs to remove all visible deposits. After the

carburetor is cleaned allow it to dry and reassemble. The rebuild

kit will not include any mounting gaskets or intake gaskets so you

will need to purchase them separately. Hopefully this will solve

your problem.

Poor quality gasoline can be the major cause this problem. I

recommend that you always use white gas if it is available in your

area. If it is not available try to find the gasoline that has the

lightest yellow color. The darker the yellow color the more sticky

varnish deposit that will be left behind. And totally avoid gasoline

that has a orange color. The darker the color the more problems it

will cause. For most of the country the only white gas available is

Amoco which is now sold as 93 octane at BP stations.

If you found rust or corrosion when you opened your carburetor,

then you probable have had water in your fuel at one time or

another. To check for water in your fuel use a crystal clear bottle

such as a soft drink bottle. Water is heavier than gasoline and the

water will go to the bottom. It is also beneficial to filter your fuel

before you put it into your machine. A cone shaped coffee filter in

a funnel is perfect for this.

2007 420 Rancher ES. Why is it stuck in 3rd gear and seems to be flashing a code of 12?

Most transmissions go into a fail safe mode to prevent damage to transmission but you can still damage it if you keep driving it. Most related codes are due to speed sensors. But you will have to look up what the code means exactly.

My Honda rancher 420 is idling bad. it will crank and idle good for a few seconds then it starts revving up and back down. then when I put it in gear it takes off without giving it any throttle.

Hey Bj,
Sounds like the throttle position sensor is going bad, take it to a professional and let them trouble shoot it.. it WILL be cheaper in the long run!!

Track down the fuel line to the fuel pump and check the wiring there. You should have good power to the pump, and you should have a good electrical ground. If you have both but the pump isn't pumping, and the tank has plenty of good fresh gas and the gas petcock is turned on, then the fuel pump needs replacing.
