Does the bowl have a drain screw that could be leaking? There may be a gasket there.
If it is leaking from the top flange, it sounds like the float is not stopping the gas.
Try taking the bowl off and holding the float up; does that stop the gas?
Do you have to push the float up beyond horizontal before the fuel stops?
If so, the plunger may have to be adjusted higher to reach the seat.

Gas leaking out means carb problem. Do not use the unit until you solve the issue, as you are a fire hazard. Typically, you need to rebuild the carb.

Cleaned out jet of carb


Gas leaks out of the TOP of the bowl or at the Jet/bolt?
Some Bowls have a spring loaded Purge, they don't always seal well, is it leaking from that?

Gas leaking from Ariens 42" 93603700


sounds like the carburetor Needle valve is sticking. A good Carburetor cleaning will fix that ...The easiest way to semi fix the problem is to buy a Small Shut off valve (about $6) and put it in the gas line between the gas tank and the carburetor. Then shut that valve off every time you finish mowing. This Ethanol gas that we are forced to use is a carburetor killer..

Ariens st24e leaking gas from carb body


As you said, it's probably got a stuck float. If stored without draining and fuel petcock turned off, gas evaporates from carb bowl and sticks float down, allowing fuel to flow all the time.

Solution: Remove carb and fully clean. Carb dip can be effective if left long enough but it will not clean out totally closed-up holes or clogged passages. Cleaners can only dissolve varnish if they can get to it and totally clogged passages won't allow cleaner to flow to where it's needed. Pros use a hot bath of cleaner and/or ultrasonic cleaners.

Start with a carburetor rebuild kit and use as many parts as necessary. Be careful to remove rubber parts like O-rings and gaskets before cleaning with solvents. Adjust mixture screws to factory recommendations and fine tune after you get it running. Good idea to purchase an engine service manual for you particular engine.

I have an Ariens st524 model number 932020 that I recently acquired that has a leaky carberator and the gas shutoff doesn't shut completely so all of the gas just leaks out while the machine is in storage....


I think the leaking gas at your carb is caused by the float or inlet needle that controls the proper amount of gas going in the carb. If you remove the float bowl from the carb to get at the float, remove the float and check to see if there is gas inside inside the float by shaking it. The float is very light as you can see, so a little bit of gas inside makes it not control the gas level at the proper level. You can also wipe the float dry, then move it around and if there is gas in it you will see a wet spot. If leaking install new one. It could also be the inlet needle sticking and allowing too much gas to get in the bowl. When gas leaks out of the carb that way that is usualy the problem. I hope this helps you out a little. Best regards and good luck. I will gladly answer any questions.

Mower only runs two min and quits


Sounds like a blocked or dirty fuel inlet.

Remove the carb bowl and work the float up and down until gas flow improves. Be gentle! Just a little light pressure from beneath and the float should swing up about a quarter inch.

The short run is due to the carb bowl not refilling fast enough to keep up with full throttle demand.

Make sure when you put the carb bowl back on there arent any fuel leaks before trying to run the mower.

Good luck and be careful!

Gas leaking from bottom of carb


Your info is vague; does gasoline leak when engine running or at any time? Does the engine run ok, or is the engine flooding from too rich a gas mixture ?
Most often the leak is the seal on the float bowl; either the top rim gasket or the fiber washer on the center nut/bolt. It also can be from a sticking float that is allowing the gas to continue above the normal level (just like in a toilet tank). This can happen if the float is deteriorated from moisture over the year and gas/water has gotten into the float and making it hevier than normal (thus changing the level at which hte float actually floats and stops the inflow of gas. Also , the needle that the float pushes to stop gas can stick open or closed.
Most of this work can be done without renoving carb from engine but it requires a bit more dexterity to work on it while attached. Goodluck, Macgivor
