Trimmer won't prime to start


Look inside the tank. Some units have a stone inside that blocks the fuel line when it is tipped a certain way. Might be what's happening here.

1988 aric cat 440 jag when primed will start and run then dies


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.

TORO 6.5 RUNS FOR 4 SECONDS AFTER PRIMING THEN DIES.pUT IN NEW SPARK PLUG,new gas,but after priming run for several seconds.. it dies again....can you help...sounds like dirt in carb??/ It had run...


Did you check the filter? If the engine doesn't get air they it could cause it to die out like that. Also make sure that there isn't anything in the air line to the carb.

Did you check the gas line and make sure that you are getting enough fuel?

Lawn mower will start when primed but will only run for few secon


It starts because of excess fuel from priming. It usually then gets it fuel from main jet in carb.

You need to find the main jet and run a fine piece of sturdy wire through it. That will restore fuel flow so your mower can continue running after the priming fuel is gone.

This is a good thing to learn. Main jets tend to clog a lot on mowers these days.

I have a troy built self propelled mower, it ran great last season, now it will not stay running. I checked to see if it was getting fuel and it is. I primed it and it acts like it is going to run and then...


The jets in carbs are really small and clog easily. If you stored your mower with gas in it start by replacing the gas. Remove the air filter and prime the carb. Start the engine and place your fingers over the air intake on the carb. This will cause the engine to stall as it will be starved for air. It will also create a powerful suction on the jets and possibly dislodge a blockage. Prime the engine again and start. If does not continue to run, repeat the steps again. If after 3-4 tries your engine wont run you will have to remove the carb and clean the jets manually. The reason your engine runs for a short time is because it is burning the fuel that you put in there by priming it. After that the fuel comes through the jets in the carb and if these jets are clogged the engine will die.

Toro personal pace mower 5 yrs old only runs 10-15 seconds.


Was gasoline left in the tank during off season? Sometimes gas will break down and clog the jets in the carb. The priming bypasses the carb so when you put fuel in by pumping the bulb it runs, but dies becasue no additional fuel is coming through the carb after the primed fuel is burned off. Sounds like you need to clean the jets in the carb and in the future, use Stabil in gasoline to keep it from breaking down.
