Clean the air cleaner, if clean you will need to remove the carburetor and clean all the jets out inside it. Keep the air cleaner clean to prevent this from happening

Sounds like there is water in your fuel. If there is, you can see it in the bottom of the tank or just drain it and put fresh new gas in it. If straight fuel is left in small engines in the off seasons, they will gum up the carb with varnish and the carb will need to be removed, cleaned, and reinstalled.

Why does Honda GX340 die immediately despite fresh gas, cleaned carb, and new plug?


Perhaps you haven't adjusted the carburetor correctly.The fuel supply orifice could be still plugged . Recheck the carb.

My troy-bilt leaf blower will idle but dies when throttled wide open


it is starving for gas the float or a jet has trash water in it, try taking the filter off the gas line in the tank, poor all the gas out in to a glass jar and see if it has water in the gas water will be at the bottom of the jar, if it is in the tank if there is water pull the filter out of tank remove pump the prime bulb to get the water out of the carburetor, get all water out of tank again, get new filter put it on and use fresh mix of gas, the water is in the can that you fill the blower up with, pour it out and check for water or get new gas can and new gas put new or dry out the filter you have with rags squeeze the water out then use a hair dryer to finish drying it out put it back on , then fill up with fresh gas prim and try to start it, if it still wont start you will need to take carburetor off and blow out the lines if this sounds hard get a new blower, or take it in for repairs good luck or you can get a new carb there not that much 25 or 30 bucks if you can change it out , good luck

Hi well this is a little odd,however i have come across a similar thing like this before and what fixed it was the tank breather, it was blocked and after a while the tank developed a vacuum and gas wouldn't flow, so i wonder if this is the same or similar worth a try anyway? try loosening the top a little and see? If that works check the breather tube?
Otherwise, i think that it still must be a gas problem and would troubleshoot that area? maybe the float sticks?

Snow blower 1 year old, was using it ran out of gas , put in new gas, went to start, it ran for few seconds then dies,, prime it it runs few seconds dies, has NEW gas ans new plug, only runs for seconds...


If it has a fuel filter on it change it and that should get you going again. If not the dirt that was in the tank is prob in the carb cleaning the fuel bowl and jets should get you up to par. Hope that helps

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.

Wont continue to run after prime and start


often the last ounce of gas in the tank has some crud in it. Get a can of carbeurator cleaner spray. Remove the air filter and squirt three short bursts of the cleaner spray into the air port and then start it. Keep giving it short bursts of carb. cleaner until it runs smoothly again.

After 1 season it ran great ,slowly died now it wont start


So many possibilities, so little data... <grin>

When you say "clean gas", do you mean that you added "fresh" gas, or that you emptied the tank, and refilled it with "fresh" gas?

Try this:

a. remove the "float bowl" screw, and put a regular "bowl" or pan underneath to catch ALL of the gas as it comes out.

b. if the gas is totally "clear", then it (probably ain't the gas), but... if it's "yellow", it's old and/or contaminated; alternatively, if there's any water (which may appear as a grey-ish liquid) then it's contaminated; also, don't forget to check the gas from your "storage" can, the same way...

c. re-install the the screw, and put some *FRESH* gas in the tank.

d. pull the spark-plug, and clean (or replace) it.

e. prime it, and crank it, and it should start right up.

Wont start after 6 mos. I changed the spark plug, drained & added fresh gas, checked the fuel filter... Kicks over fine. Ran for 4 seconds, then it died. Always ran & started great before.


With a new plug and fresh gas it should start. Check to make sure there isn't a kill switch turned off or that the gas petcock from the tank to the carb is on.

How did you check the fuel filter? Disconnecting it from the fuel line that goes to the carb is the best way, making sure the gas is turned on under the tank. Bleed off a little gas into a can or something just to make sure the filter isn't plugged.

The last thing I'd do is take off the air filter and spray a little starting fluid in the carb. It may start and run several times if there is old gas in there somewhere. Remember the bowl on the carb is probably still full of old gas. After some fresh fuel reaches the plug it should start and continue to run.

(You might drain the bowl on the carb of ols gas before you go any further)

Good luck!
