Question about Electrical Supplies
Put fuel in tried to start, used the choke on various settings, still no joy
When was the last time it ran?
If you didn't run it out of gas the last time you used it and it sat for a few months, the Carburetor is gummed up.
You can thank the wonderful idiots that think Ethanol Gas is a good idea

I have to leave a comment for cfa6094. Your pretty good at flexing your cyber muscles. I am a service tech in the repair field and deal with people like you all the time. If you are the owner of the equipment you should properly maintain your equipment. Sounds like you are not very organized. Sound more like crises management to me. Is mrfixit the only person you asked about this problem? One more thing, sound like you are a bit of a procrastinator to me. LOOK AT ME NO SPELL CHECK!

Not that i am aware of, however, I suspect that as soon as you load it up it will die again as the load will call for greater speed, and too much fuel from the choke position will cause it to die again.
What I suspect is that your carburator is clogged up at the jets and is not metering the air fuel mxture properly. You may have to disassemble the carburator and clean it. Since the government has mandated that gasoline contain 10% alcohol, it has become a night mare for small engines that are not used very often. The alcohol is very hydroscopic (retains water) and during the off use period, the alcohol evaporates and leaves the water behind to mix with gunk and clog the needle valves.
Try removing the old gasoline. Refill the machine with fresh gasoline and add some "SeaFoam" (an additive) or any other brand additive that will help disolve the built up gunk in the carburator. Remove the air cleaner and try spraying a carburator cleaner down in the air intake while the machine is running, this way the air passages may clear while the new gasoline may dislodge the built up gunk. Note: The carb cleaner will stall the engine.
It is probably wise to run the gas tank dry before storage and only fill when the machine will be used. Stabil is an additive for storage, and it did it's job before the alcohol edict. I am not sure that Stabil will allow long time storage. (more than 3 months) SeaFoam can be purchased at WalMart, stabil is on the shelf of most small engine sales rooms such as Sears.
