If there is gas in the carb, but not getting to the cylinder, then the carb may need a rebuild. Check the air filter; If it is completely clogged then there will be no air to pass through the venturi that would draw gas into the cylinder. You could try backing out the needle screws to see if there is a clog, but if you need to go further (bad float, varnished gas, etc.) you would need to rebuild the carb.

One other thing to check... will it run with the gas cap off? If so, replace the gas cap. Some models have a valve in the gas cap that won't draw gas if stuck.

Briggs and stratton quantam 6.5 hp fires but will not run


Check for a clogged air filter.Try starting it without the air filter installed. Check for loose wires to the spark plug and ground. I am assuming there is gas in the tank, but does it get to the carb? Check the gas line, is it blocked? Is the carb leaking?

26 hp briggs it is firing and full of fresh gas but wont start.


Well you didn't indicate what its mounted on but the basics are: spark and fuel. Pull a spark plug and make sure you get spark. If you do then it must be fuel. You can try a shot of starting fluid (small amont) into the carb, if it runs on that you know you have a fuel problem. Be sure the carb is getting fuel from the tank. Clean the carb. Maybe a carb kit. With today's fuel, you must take care of your fuel system. Use Sta-bil year round. Fuel can go bad in 60 days.

Just will not start


You have most likely done this but lets go back to the basics.

Do you have spark at the plug?
Check to see if the plug is fouled - pull the plug connect to the plug wire- ground the metal part of the plug to the metal body of the engine - as you turn the engine over it should fire cleanly from the center to the electrode, if it fires off to the side or has an orange colored spark it is fouled - replace it.

Once we have spark check for gas is it getting to the carb?

90+ % of all small engines not running are due to the fuel line or in tank screen being plugged with garbage. Remove the fuel line from the carb, point it down and using a small container to catch the gas it should flow freely.
If you have good gas flow reconnect the fuel line to the carb and put about 1 CC of gas in the plug hole reinstall the plug and fire it - almost all small engines use a bit of vacuum to pull the fuel from the carb into the cylinder, jump starting them with a very small amount of gas directly in to the cylinder can help them get going.
A VERY SMALL AMOUNT OF GAS AND CLEAN UP ANY SPILLS BEFORE YOU TRY TO START !!
