Hi carlafanale
Change the fuel filter in the fuel tank...also check your fuel lines for cracks...otherwise it is trash in the carburator, see info below.
******************************************************************
Sounds like you have dirt/debris in your caburetor jets,fuel passages or a diaphgram that is becoming non-flexible.
Check/Clean/Replace your Air Filter, a dirty air filter can make your engine run to rich with fuel.
Also be sure to check and clean your spark arrestor in the exaust,if you have one installed on your engine.
Note: ALWAYS USE COMPRESSED AIR TO CLEAN YOUR JETS AND PASSAGES, VERY IMPORTANT.
Note:Before you disassemble the carburetor:
Write down on a piece of paper or take a picture of how the linkage attaches to your carburetor for later reference when you go to reinstall your carburetor.
Mark each piece with a awl, or some kind of instrument that will make an alignment scratch before you disassemble the carburetor into separate pieces.
That way you will know which way it goes back together when you reassemble it.
Sometimes you can get by with priming the carburetor or by using a very small shot of starting fluid and letting it run a few times like that, and it will flush the gunk out of the jets,but most of the time you will need to rebuild the carburetor.
Be sure to check your fuel tank for water and dirt/debris, if there is water/debris then you need to clean your tank.
Check you fuel line condition after a while they will degrade and need replacment.
Check/Clean/Replace your fuel filter if you have one, normally they are located in the fuel tank of chainsaws and weedeaters.
When you remove your fuel lines from the carburetor be sure to make a drawing to how the lines are connected to the carburetor or take a pictue for later reference.
Normally the big line will be the line the fuel filter is connected to inside of the tank.The smaller of the two lines is the return to the fuel tank from the carburetor after it is pumped thru the carburetor by the primer bulb.
Make sure you are using fresh fuel...and oil if your using a two cycle chainsaw or weedeater with the oil to the right mixture...too much oil as it can cause hard starting and excessive smoking.
If the chainsaw/trimmer is over a couple of years old, then I recommend that you buy and install a new carburetor repair kit,because the diaphragm will get hard and that will cause it to be hard to crank.
The diaphgram may look good and flexible, but it can be deceiving and not act as a fuel pump as it should because it has become too hard and will cause hard starting,start and run and shut off, etc.
When you clean your carburetor, I recommend that you use a laquer thinner type cleaner to clean and dissolve the laquer build-up in the float and needle jet passages.
Be sure to remove all plastic and rubber parts before using the laquer thinner because it can dissolve the plastic parts and render them unuseable.
Be sure to use COMPRESSED AIR to blow out all the fuel and air passages.The higher air pressure is needed to blow some of the trash/debris from the fuel or air passages.
Be careful when blowing out the passages, because there are sometimes small rubber type seats in the bottom of some of the passages.
Keep in mind that the float (if you have one) for the carburetor must be level when you go to reassemble the carburetor or follow the instructions you get with the carburetor kit, or you could also ask the parts man that you get your kit from.
When you clean your carburetor and remove the jet screws, you will first need to lightly seat the jet screws.
But before you lightly seat the jet screws count the number of turns it takes to seat the jet screws from their original position.
Be sure to mark the turns down on a piece of paper.
That way when you put the jets back in, you know to lightly seat them first and then turn them back out to their original position before you started.
Note:
The little spring inside of the carburetor goes under the float arm.
That is where your fuel inlet needle/float valve is located...on the arm at the end.
Normally there is a small indention in the carburetor base and a small protrusion on the underneath of the float arm where the spring will be in the right postion for installation.
The spring will set in the indention and you will install the float arm with the needle/float valve and float rod into position over top of the spring,you will push down until it is in position and then you can tighten the screw that holds the float arm assembly in position.
Once you have your carburetor cleaned/rebuilt that should solve your problem.
Please take time to rate me

I have a BG55 blower when I try to prime it no gas come in bubble. I have made sure there nothing in gas line,and it skeet when I put a pin in the little hole, but no gas when u try to prime.


Apart from the bubble there is at least one non-return valve that could be stuck or not working because it is dry.

Could be removing the bubble and wetting everything thoroughly with fuel and quickly refitting it could kick-start it and make it work.

Engine on 30"Craftsman 2009 snow thrower won't prime. Primer button and connecting tube look good. Primer button won't send gas to the carb.


the priming bubble can look totally perfect, but all it takes is a pin hole and right around the retaining ring is hard to spot a crack and you should also check fuel lines in tank

Gas will have to be in the bubble! You may not have enough fuel, the filter may be plugged, there may be a hole in the fuel line. Check all of them and good luck...Lee

No gas when you prime it


1) Check fuel lines from tank for cracks, fuel filter in tank, primer bulb for cracks

2)Remove Carburetor
replace gaskets/diaphragms
a) use a spray carb cleaner to clean jets, holes, and body of carb
b) fuel pump diaphragm goes against the carb body,
then the gasket towards the outside
c) metering gasket goes against the carb body,
and the diaphragm goes towards the outside

When I prime my cainsaw ,gas leaks from the side near the handle. I usually prime it by tipping it on the side and depressing the gas bubble. Where the gas drips out then is on the side; the side is...


Cracked fuel line. You can find an IPL (exploded parts list) containing fuel components and some illustrations here:
"P3314 Gas Saw Type #" (Type is the - number of your serial number)
Poulan.com
http://www.ordertree.com/modelinfo/POULAN-WEED-EATER/75.59.html
Fuel components are on the "Engine Assembly" & "Handle, Chassis, & Bar Assembly" detail pages.
c828c16.gif Replacement fuel lines can be found at your local chainsaw seller/mechanic. They are different diameters.

  • The hose in the tank with the filter on the free end connects directly to the carburetor input connection.
  • If the saw is equipped with a primer bulb, the output line from the carburetor connects to the suction side of the primer (once the bulb is collapsed it draws fuel from the tank through the carburetor to refill the bulb as it inflates).
  • The pressure side of the primer returns displaced fuel to the tank as it is depressed.
Take lots of notes and a few digital photographs will help with reassembly. HTH

I have a huskavarna leaf blower 140 back pac i run it for 5 min then it srarves for gas let off on the throtle for 10 seconds put on full it gos to full rpms the starves agian


Carburetor may need adjusting or rebuilding. I would try mixing up some fresh fuel mixture and try that first. Use gas from the station not from the can sitting in the garage.
Good Day.

Leafblower won't start


I assume this is a Gas blower? So first off is the gas bad? Did this blower sit for a prolong time? These do require premix fuel and you must add 2 stroke oil to the gas ... if you don't you will ruin the motor. Check the spark plug for corrosion. Also it should have a gas bubble to prime the Carburetor with ... make sure gas is flowing through this bubble you can tell buy pressing the bubble you should feel and hear the gas squish thou it. Also check inside the gas tank look at the feed tubes make sure they are not deteriorated if they are you may just need to get a new one. Good Luck
