When cleaning the carburetor make sure the small screen is free of debris. (Should be able to see daylight through it.) Use a Den Tek Brush, (http://www.drugstore.com/products/prod.asp?pid=165357&catid=1152), to clean the small portals in carb. These portals can become blocked and will keep the mower from running. Reassemble and start. Good luck!!

If you need further assistance, just let me know.

1997 subaru Impreza sport won't stay running . stalls after minute replaced Fuel pump,filter spark plugs wires ,cleaned injectors checked fuel pressure what next


check your grounds. I find many easy fixes by cleaning all the grounds around the engine bay. I would also check the ground at the fuel pump connector that wiring is prone to corrosion and breakage

Fuel problem


i would try pouring some fuel into the carb, first, to see if it starts, saving a little so if it starts to stall pour a little more in. if this works is is not getting fuel through the fuel lines, check your fuel pump, hear it running when you turn on the key, if it is running , check for blockage in line filters, undoing one slightly, closest to fuel tank, if it leaks there, then it is not getting past it. replace this filter, go to next filter & so on up to the carb...no fuel? make sure there is some in tank & not a bad fuel gague

21A-121R900 Won't stay running


hello sir, my machine will only start when pumping primmer bulb or squirting fluid in the carburetor than stops. the fuel line has broken off, in most small carburetors this is a ongoing problem.old fuel will crystallize when left in tank for a long time.plugging up ports, fuel lines, small screen in carburetor.fuel lines will dissolve clogging carb.this is why it will run when the choke is on creating a vacuum to where there is fuel forced in the carb to rum,also the gas will evaporate leaving the oil behind clogging up carb.the thing to do is remove carb. and clean out,replacing gaskets or fuel line if necessary.use carb cleaner to clean out carb.make sure to make note where fuel line go.the fuel filter broke off of fuel line letting debris get in carb plugging it up.the muffler is known to clog up a lot on these machines where they want run. the compression should be 60 to 120 lbs any thing below 60 is junk. when adjusting the carb screws turn in all the way than turnout 1 1/4 turns turn in slow until machine runs also you need to check for spark by removing plug and grounding against engine to check spark, ok.a new spark plug would be a good ideal too , if you are going to make these repairs use new fuel line and filter,hope this helps,any comments welcome,thank you, ~~

I HAVE A 2009 FRONT TILLER 500 SERIES. RAN FINE LAST YEAR. THIS YEAR STARTS AND STALLS. NEW PLUG, OIL IS OK.AIR FILTER IS CLEAN. IT HAS A FUEL PROBLEM. I CAN GET IT TO STAY RUNNING WITH THE PRIMER.DOES IT...


There are a few things to look at.First and easiest is check the primer bulb and fuel line for any cracks,and the in line fuel filter.Next is a filter on the end of the fuel line,inside the tank.If all of that is ok there is a small screen in the carb. you will have to tear down the carb to get it.

I can start the lawn mower but it will stall if I press the primer button it will stay going....when it warms up I can get it to run but if I start to mow it will stall


First thing I would check is the air filter. Then the belt that drives the wheels. Open up the belt area and clean. Last I would check the carb. Good luck...Lee

I have a John Deere LT133 w/13hp Kohler motor. Problem


I had the same mower in my shop with the same prob. Last week, here is what i did to correct the problem, take the fuel line apart at the fuel filter, open the fuel cap and drain the gas from the tank, once it stops i took couple old walmart bags and compressed air to slowly blow air in to the tank to blow the residue and trash out of the fuel tank. Next using compressed air to blow through the fuel line from where the filter was toward the carb. Next unbolt the carb and remove the fuel bowl, take the small pin holding the float out and slowly remove the float pulling strait up as the needle will be attached via a small channel on the float. There is where you will find the seat which the needle you extracted sets in to stop or allow the fuel to flow. Clean these parts and area WELL. i usually take the air screws out and use carb cleaner to clean those areas as well. Reinstall the needle and float, pin assembly and the bowl. Reinstall the carb , and make SURE to install a new fuel filter not exceeding the last filters micron flow, double check all connections, clamps, and hardware, add new FRESH gasoline with no less than 89 octane at any time, engine should fire and run as intended.

TB70ss will not accelerate


Change the spark plug..
Change the fuel filter..
Check the fuel line for crack/splits..
Make sure the primer ball is sealed and not succking in air while running..
If it still acts up - it might need the carb might need to be rebuilt..
If it sat for a long time - the fuel will shellac in the carb and provent it from working properly..

Good luck..

Engine only runs with choke full on. Dies when off full choke.


Hi Dave, it sounds crazy, but try this. Check your gas cap. It could be clogged, causing a vacuum to occur in the tank, and therefore not allowing the carb. to take on gas. It usually take 10-15 min. for this to occur. The next time you run the mower and it starts to stall out, loosen the gas cap and see if it begins to run again. If it does, then you know that the gas cap is clogged.
