Question about Gcv160 Gas Engine

Why won't my brand new Honda mower start

I purchased it at SAMs yesterday. Put oil and gas in as directed. The only way it starts is to put choke on and leave it on by any means and it runs. Let choke off and it dies. Brand new. Help please

Take it back for a warranty fix as it is defective from the factory. Do not make any adjustments yourself as they will claim unauthorised work and may not repair under warranty.

My lawnmower, husqvarna 7021p will not start,after checkin oil and gas, almost started when i did the choke but still wouldn't start


I would try to clean out the carburetor and replace diaphragm if your carb has one. Easy way to tell is put a little bit of carb cleaner in the spark plug hole then try to start it. I it fires up and then dies then the carb is not getting the gas to the engine. Hope this helps!

Homelite chain saw MODEL UT109460 will not start up I don't have a manuel and need help to figure out why it won't turn on at all.


Hello again Asher, I'm back. Let's just check a few things:
Gas may be old and stale, this happens when you don't use machine for a long while. Empty old and put in new. Cap should have measurement.
If this is a fuel/oil mixture machine, did you use straight gas? Not good if you did. This could damage your engine.
Do you have spark? If not did you move OFF to ON switch?
Did you put on choke and pull cord till engine almost starts?
If it does this did you then put choke to 1/2 choke?
If you get to this point and engine does start, let it warm shortly and put choke to open.
If still no start it is possible that you have a carburator problem, and need a rebuild. Please let me know how you made out, GOOD LUCK.

There could well be a build up of sediment and debris in the main jet to the carburetor. It is easy to get to and clean. It is the brass bolt that holds the lower float bowl onto the main body of the carburetor. To clean it, drain your gas. Remove the bolt and external washer UNDER the carburetor bowl. Clean out the bowl of any sediment and/or water. To clean the brass bolt, use no metal objects. Carb/Choke aerosol spray cleaner will do the job. Pay close attention to the hole in the bottom of the bolt and the very small holes about 2/3 of the way up the bolt. Clean till shiny with holes cleared and reinstall. Your fuel flow problem and shut off condition may be solved.

Weedwacker -purchased more than a year ago, never been able to start it. Lost owner's manual - can I get a copy on line?


Should be able to google model #. Make sure you have a 40:1 fuel oil mix. Pump primer bulb 4-5 times, put on full choke, when attempts to start set choke to half. After it starts open choke. If won't start and has been sitting for months with fuel in it, the carb is more than likley gummed up.If you paide less than $100.00 for it it is not worth having it repaired at a shop. You can although purchase a new carb at eparts, or sears parts direct for around $ 30.00. Just need the model#. Good luck.

Buy some starting fluid and spray some in the carb or air cleaner intake port, if the machine is flooding do not choke while using the starting fluid, make sure you do not have too much oil in the mowwer.
