Assume you are referring to a fuel needle valve on the carburetor Get name off of engine and/or carb. Ask Google for spare parts. If that fails, take parts to family owned outdoor equipment store. Bribe them to bring out carb rebuild kits till you find one that matches. If they are any good, they can look at the engine/carb and pull the right kit

    I have already tried both suggestions in depth. Ethonal gas screwed the fuel needle valve.

    Usually the seat and needle are metal. Alcohol should not have affected the metal. Even if it did, try to clean off all corrosion or deposits with steel wool. If that won't work, the next bet is to take it in to the outdoor equipment store, see if they can rebuild or replace carburetor. In just about all cases, fuel powered equipment should not be stored with fuel in the tank.

Gentron 10000w generator has a leaking carburator

Your carburetor float valve may be stuck open. You'll have to remove the carburetor, remove the sediment bowl at the bottom of the carburetor (where the float is), and check the float. Is it filled with gas? Replace the float if it is. If the float is dry inside, then remove the float and clean the needle valve & seat. (be careful to note how the float pin, linkage, spring, etc. are positioned so you properly reassemble. After cleaning & reassembling, turn the carburetor upside down & try blowing into the gas line connection on the carburetor. You shouldn't be able to blow air. Turn the carburetor right side up & repeat. If you can blow air into the carburetor's gas line connection, the float valve & seat are properly working. Reinstall the carburetor. You should be good to go.

S&S motor with CV carburetor; Start and run idle great but have problem with aceleration . Carburetor cleaning, aceleration pumps is good, gas is ok.

Hi Dennis, if you have a carburator the usual suspects are:
1. Damaged or restricted fuel tank venting system (gas cap).
2. Inlet system air leak.
3. Vacuum piston malfunction.
4. Accelerator pump leaking or no output.
5. Plugged bowl vent.
6. Fuel level (float chamber) too low.
7. Restriccted fuel supply passages.
8. Plugged jets or passages.
9. Worn or damaged needle or needle jet.
10. Enrichner valve not seated or leaking.
Good luck

The washer should be on - otherwise gasoline will usually leak out. If it runs briefly after a day or so of not running, the float may be stuck in the up position - pressing the needle into the seat. What ever little gas is in the bowl is quickly used and it stalls.
Check out this page for carburetor cleaning / rebuilding videos - it's pretty easy to do.

Gas leaking from Carburator

Hi jmarchiselli

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.
Note:Before you disassemble the carburetor:
Write down on a piece of paper and 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 sharp 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/s condition...after a while they will degrade and need replacement.
Check/Clean/Replace your fuel filter if you have one.
When you remove your fuel lines from the carburetor be sure to make a drawing or take a picture of how the lines are connected to the carburetor.
Also a good time to take a picture for later reference for reassembly.
If the mower 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.
Once you have your carburetor cleaned/rebuilt that should solve your problem.

Gas going into the oil

If the unit hasn't been laying on its side or front for a prolonged period of time your problem is with the float and/or needle valve in the carburator. If the float is damaged or the needle valve or seat isn't able to close fully, gas will continue to flow into the float bowl then into the cylinder where it will seep down into the crank case and contaminate the oil. Best bet is to buy a rebuild kit for the carburetor but check that it comes with the float, some kits do not have floats in them and the float must be bought as a seperate part if you need one.

When you replace the needle valve you always need to replace the seat. You also may have a bad float in the carburetor.
