SOURCE: idles really high after changing the bag and hitting rock

You may have partially sheared the flywheel key when you hit the rock and this will change the timing.

Good Luck

I don't know what type carb is on this one, but most have a diaphram. If the diaphram is weak it will cause this. You can purchase a new diaphram at a Lawnmower service center. It's not that hard to install.

Float stuck in open position. When the gas evaporated in it there was a gunk left behind and then It was down and either froze up or there is trash keeping the needle valve from sealing up all the way.
So when you start it gas keeps pouring into the motor. It is suposed to shut off once it gets enough to run on.
Be real careful take the carb off and remove the bowl. And then the float. Take a q-tip and clean the needle valve port ou real good. And clean the rubber tip gently. Then put back together.
When it is upside down the float should be parallel with the carb. That would be the shut off point. You may have to adjust it.

That should do it. When you hook the gas line back up loosen the bowl and let gas in carb til it starts to run out. Then mow.

Husqvarna lawnmower will not start after sittling idle for winter. Bought new last fall.

I fear this is stale fuel in both carb and tank, drain the tank, if the carb has a float bowl remove it and empty the contents, refill with fresh fuel and pull until it fires up.

Motor will not Idle up to Medium or High

Does the engine want to bog down when you move the throttle? Or does it do absolutely nothing?
If it bogs down when you try the throttle, It could be:
water in the gas
bad or distorted diaphragm (if no float)
stuck needle valve
stuck float

I have a husqvarna YTH150 hydrostatic kohler motor 1995-1999 upon starting it takes many tries then when started its like its on a steady idle it'll idle high then low in a steady rotation until it cuts...

Sounds like fuel starvation, clean the fuel filter and lines, make sure there's no muck in the fuel tank. It's also possible the choke is sticking, although the exhaust would smoke and smell of petrol (gasoline).

How to set the jets on a 125 weed trimmer. The revs are too high and adjusting the idle screw makes no difference.

The idle screw is just that, for idle. The second screw is for high speed. I'm not real familiar with this motor. Try turning the second screw in or out slowly but not to far, you'll want to make sure you still maintain good throttle response. Hope this helps
