Sounds like you have a jet stopped up inside the carb. Try cleaning it out good. Run some carb cleaner thru it.

Won't start


Check for power on the small wire at the starter with the key in the crank position. If there is no power than you will need to trace the circuit. A Year, make, model, and engine size would help a lot!!

Truck won't start


Sounds like you have several problems.
If the engine will not crank, do you have power on the purple wire on the small starter terminal when the key switch is in the start position ?

I have a ******* troy bilt snowblower it won't ******* stay ******* started can anyone ******* not refer me to ******* different ******* brands and leafblowers and other ******* things other than


The diaphragm in the Carburetor is probably bad. If you are mechanical it is not that hard of a fix. Of course this is assuming that you have cleaned out all the old gas and replaced it with 100% real gas. NO ETHANOL. I also keep gas treatment in all of my tanks and spare gas cans. Varnish from old gas makes small engines like snow blowers that are only used seasonally a Bi*** to start and keep running.

Order or go out to your lawn center and buy a new diaphragm, I bet it fixes it.

Generac xg10000e won't start


Very annoying is the word. In order for many on todays small engines to pass EPA regulations, the carburetor is set very lean. This makes them very hard to get started and warmed up. Once warm, most will run OK .
Try choking a little 'til it is warmed up and running smoothly. Some have an adjustable main jet that can be opened a little to overcome this problem.
Some are not adjustable and some have a small plastic cap over the adjusting screw. The plastic cap is supposed to be a tamper proof thing.
If you still have trouble take it to the local small engine man. I am sure he has the cure or marbe he can adjust under warranty.
Hope this helps. Robert

My toro snowblower keeps stalling. It starts up fine, but won't run continuously.


If you haven't already, dump out gas and put fresh in it and try this, if it doesn't work you will have to clean the carb, take it apart and clean all jets ports etc and put back together and you should be Good to Blow Snow, pretty common problem with Small Engines that set half the season.

Hi, I have a Craftsman Eager-1 5.3 3-in-0ne solid state enigine lawn mower..got it used but in almost new condition. worked great cutting 1 1/2 ft of very wet grass for a few hours (couldn't get to it...


Drain the fuel or when you remove the float bowl bolt (also the main jet), then hold up on the float to keep the needle on the seat so gas won't go everywhere. When you have that brass bowl bolt off, clean it! Use nothing metal on it. Pay close attention to the small hole in the bottom and along the smooth unthreaded part at the other end. Use carb/choke cleaner to blast gum and dirt out of those very small fuel orifices. I recommend installing an inline fuel filter also. A shut off valve is recommended too, that way if the needle in the carb sticks open, the crankcase won't be polluted with gas. Usual symptoms on a clogged lawn mower main jet though, are after pushing primer bulb, engine runs about 3 seconds. Try the brass bolt cleaning and post back if needed.
