If it's coming from the primer bulb, replace the bulb. If it's running out the carburator, take iff the air filter and check for obstructions. 2 - 3 pumps is all it should need.

Gas shooting out of rubber hose above carburator. craftsman lt200 with kohler engine.


If hose coming off carburator does not connect to anything then it is the over flow for carburator when float gets stuck and does not close needle valve causing excess fuel in carburator bowl and is drained automatically through vent orfice connected to hose that gas is dripping from. If this is the case then remove carburator bowl, check float, needle valve and o-ring in where needle valve goes. sometimes when carburators sit over winter with gas in them the gas breaks down and over time will gel/harden and cause float to hang up and o-ring for needle valve to deteriate and not sealing properly. clean and replace parts as nessesary.
I hope this helped.

Very hard to start, i pull and pull and pull on the cord but it wont start i do prime it every third pull any ideas?


Chances are your carburator has dirt in it.
It doesn't take much to clog those little carbs.
Empty the gas tank and clean it.
Purchase a can of small engine carburator cleaner. Comes in a spray can for about $5 at Home Depot or Lowes.
Remove the carburator and disassemble it.
Soak the body in clean gasoline for about 15 minutes if you can agitate it do so to help the gas disolve any clogs.
Clean the ports with the spray cleaners to blow out any debris.
Reassemble and remount the carb.
Remove, clean and gap the spark plug
Refuel the gas tank with new clean gas

Mower starts after priming, then quits. new sparkplug, air filter etc. cleaned bowl still no luck. cleaned out orifices in bowl screw. nothing. Suggestions?


Evan though you cleaned the bowl, the float isn't "floating" correct in the bowl to raise the needle for gas to flow into the carb. The float and needle can be replaced. When you prime an engine the gas shoots straight to the carb. As when the engine is running the floating goes up and down to raise the needle for gas to flow.

Have old Eager ****** 280 Gas Trimmer, Replaced Gas line, cleaned filter, tubing and Primmer Pump return line, still won't Prime, and start engine. Pust some gas in spark plug, engine run for a few...


If the bulb is good and it still won't prime, then you have either one more tube (there are usually 3) to replace, OR, the gas pickup in the tank has a plugged filter or a plugged line. I'd check it first.

Mowers is not getting gas


Check your float ... it might be sticking in the upward position when the fuel well fully fills? This would cause the mower to run on the fuel that gets inside the line when you prime it, but since the float stuck in the upward position would close the intake line from the gas tank, your mower would die after the priming fuel is spent.
[The float is located inside the metal bowl beneath the carburator usually, and can be opened by removing a single bolt/screw in the center of the bottom of the bowl. Be careful to pay attention to how the valve-pin attached to the float is attached; usually it's just hooked on very loosely. Thouroughly clean the float, pin & inside of the bowl, then reassemble after making sure the float moves freely.] If the problem isn't solved by this, you might have an obstruction (like a leaf-cutter wasp nest) in your fuel line between the gas tank & carburator? Check the float first.
