This might require adjustment of the hi speed carb screw, the lo speed, and the idling screw as well.
The engine needs to be good and warm, you need to be certain you have a fresh fuel mixture in the tank, and you should check the air filter because it too affects the way the saw will run at low speed and idle.

I would start with the hi speed adjustment screw since wi does start. Fire it up and run it a bit to make sure you have it warmed up.

You may need someone else to help you hold the saw while you make these adjustments. With the throttle wide open, turn the hi speed screw slowly, in increments of 1/4 turn, to the left. It may be just a bit off. The objective here is to turn one way until it sputters or runs a little rough. Then turn it the other way until the engine smooths out. Continue to turn in the same direction until it again runs rough. Then turn back about halfway between those two points.

It should run well at wide open throttle. Place your screwdriver in the low speed adjustment screw and turn to the left, in small 1/4 increments like you did before. The objective here is to adjust to the point where the saw will throttle up quickly and smoothly, and more and more from an idling position, or as close as you can get.

If you find you don't get that, and the ramp up is choppy and unsmooth, adjust in the other direction. Eventually you should get to a point where you have quick response to your throttle. You should get to a point where it runs without being wide open.

If it fires up easily and throttles up smoothly but won't idle, the you need to adjust the idling screw. Adjust it until the chain begins to move on the bar when you let the throttle go. Once you get to the point where it idles with the chain moving, back off the adjustment until the chain just stops moving.

Make sure the air cleaner is clean. You may have to clean the carb with spray carb cleaner while it is running at full throttle. If you do, spray a tiny bit at a time, as it will almost kill the engine.

Finally, after all this work, invest in a new spark plug, even if the one in it isn't that old.

Troy-Bilt Hand-Held Blower dies when warm and throttle wide open


You reported that most of the items I would've suggested, you have checked...
Good job.
A couple more things:
  • Replace fuel filter, it's in the gas tank
  • Check and clean the Spark Arrestor screen at muffler, when they plug up, it's a major restriction to exhaust gas flow
  • And check and adjust High/Low screws at carburetor, video attached.
  • And clean or install rebuild kit for carburetor
Good luck...

Why wont my trimmer take gas after it starts ?


Open, turn ccw, the high 'H' speed jet screw about .3 of a turn while holding the throttle wide open at the trigger. Engine should increase spread andyou may have to adjust. Failing that and assuming correct oil/gas mix it will likely be carburetion, clogged fuel filter or bad fuel line.

Fuel starvation, start by replacing the fuel filter in the tank, check the fuel hoses for leaks up to the carb.

1997 suzuki sidekick 1.6 liter runs like 20 minutes then dies. like its not getting gas. wont start till cools down again . any help much appreciated :)


not too cool kick
is check engine light on, at key on and goes out after running?

you forgot to say, does it restart instantly after it dies.
and does it stink of raw gas after or make black smoke.?

when it dies, can you keep it going with a fast right foot>
if it dont start , right after did you try the secret
unflood mode (wide open throttle)

if car wont start , try test fuel
best is instant start in a can (spray)

key test here is car flooding or is it starving for fuel.
those are the top Suzuki tricks.

2001 mercedes c240 has a really rough start but when the car almost dies I turn the car off wait 3 seconds and it starts perfect. Next comes the issue with having to warm it up before driving anywhere...


Gasoline- thank you. Warm up is not an issue like diesel is. Sounds like the choke is is either wide open or over choking. With the engine cold, remove the air cleaner and note where the plate is at the opening of the carb. If it is wide open then without touching anything else and engine not running, step down on the gas pedal and see if the choke plate reset itself to restricter the carb inlet. If it didn't, then take some WD 40 and spray the linkages and the rod ends holdin the choke plate.By hand work the plate and linkage holding the gas open at the carb. Then set the plate to wide open and do the gas pedal thing agan to see if choke sets itself back to restricting the carb intake. If it does, start the engine and as the engine warms upm the choke plate should start opening on its own and you are off and running. Roitine question. Is your air cleaner clean? If the choke plate needs adjusting. get back to me. K? Good luck Remember to press the gas pedal down once before cranking. That sets the choke for cold start. Hope this helped you Good luck Note, the WD40 won't hurt anything but avoid spraying with engine running or when engine is hot..

It dies when you give it gas.but it startes fine


When it starts it is running on the idle jet and when you open the throttle it is being starved of the correct gas/air mixture. Sounds like you have a blocked air filter or fuel restriction. Take off the air filter and try to start it opening the gas slowly. If that doesn't work, clean the fuel tank filter and try again.If that doesn't work, remove the carburettor and clean it with carb cleaner paying attention to any fuel or drilled holes in the body. Blow it off with compressed air and replace it. Ensure fuel tank has clean gas.

Maxim tiller won't run


Try better quality gas. I had the same problem. Ethanol too high in lower grade gas. Buy better grade or ethanol free. Mine works fine with better gas.
