Try removing the jet in the bottom of the carburetor and cleaning it out. At the same time put a rag underneath the carb when you remove the jet so the gas in the carb can drain out. It may have old gas in it or the jet may be plugged with dirt/debris.

How to replace carb. Primer?


If you don't see two screws diagonal of each other than there is a little ring holding in your primer bulb. Be careful when removing ring as to not bend out of shape usually new primer bulbs don't come with them. If there are the two screws diagonally, than just unscrew and lift holding plate remove old primer and reverse for install... Good Luck....

I have a craftsman eager-1 4.5 hp mowerthat won't stay running. If I hold the primer bulb in, it runs. I've adjusted the screw all the in and it still won't keep running. Any ideas?


Do you hold the primer in or pump it? Pumping the primer forces the fuel into the intake bypassing the diaphragm's intended function. Assuming you pump the primer to keep it running your carburetor is dirty and should be cleaned. Ensure that your fuel is fresh and that your fuel can and fuel tank has no water in it. Ethanol in fuel will evaporate and cause condensation thus creating unwanted water.

Toro GTS 20332 (bought it 12 months ago) won't run


I believe that Toro Guarantees to start 1 Pull, was gas left in it all winter?, If so this is'nt covered under warranty, cause gas is to be ran out or dumped out at end of season this will prevent any gumming up of carb . did you completely disassemble carb? does it have a primer on it, those gskts need replacing, clean out the jet in bottum of float bowl,small holes,sometimes missed and remove and check your needle/seat to make sure that when float drops gas runs out then lift float up and gas should stop. hope this helped you,another thing spray carb cleaner in carb and pull over and see if it will start that way enough to keep running with choke to see if it will **** gas into it

Mower wont stay run n unless i hold primer in


If it is a float bowl carburetor may have a jet clogged or the primer bulb could have a hole in it. If it is a diaphragm type carburetor, the diaphragm may be stiff and needs replacing. Check it out.
Good day.

I prime it it runs for about 1.5-2 sec. then stops.


Assuming you have a Tecumseh engine, replace the primer bulb. Make sure you get the correct one, there are 5 different ones that will fit. when you get it from your dealer make sure you have engine mod. & spec. #
Also make sure the dealer gives you the correct one, not just one that will "fit"

You probably have a crack or hole in the primer bulb. Replace it and see if that solves your problem.

My Toro 20016 will start but will only run for a minute. If I hold the primer button down all the way it will continue to run but will die if I release. I have cleaned the float and there are no leaks in...


You will need to clean out the jet on the bottom of the carburetor. The fuel is not being sucked in to engine. Check the needle and seat to make sure fuel is flowing in to the carburetor.
