SOURCE: My riding lawn mower won't start. New battery

Spray starting fluid into the air box if it starts and dies out there is a fuel delivery problem if the mower has a petcock fuel shut of valve disconnect the fuel line after the petcock and hold a container under the hose turn on the valve to ensure gas flow to carb if there is no petcock valve I would still check the line to carb make sure gas flows through the hose to carb.

SOURCE: DLT 3000 Intek 18.5 Carb Float Stuck?

If it starts cold and runs for 10 min then it sounds like the fuel cap is not venting properly, try runnin engine with fuel cap loose and see if it dies. 9 times out of 10 the fuel cap is the culprit. Let me know

SOURCE: john deere 425 mower won't start

The ignition switch module is likely to be the problem,they seem to quit for no good reason.The safety relays and fuses are built into the board that comes with the switch and will most likely fix your problem.

SOURCE: John Deere will not start.

If you have gas running down to the carberator ( take the fuel line off and make sure there is gas running to it or there may be a screen or filter plugged by the tank or on the way to the carb) if there is gas there the problem lies in the carb itself. If you have some mechanical ability you should be all right as it is not rocket science. If you are comfortable with taking the carb apart the first thing i would check is the needle vavle. With the carb apart you will see a big brass looking thing this is the float, right above that is the neddle valve, that is the first place they seem to stick on me. Move the float up and down if the neddle above it doesn't move or sticks there is your problem. Spray it with carb cleaner and see if it moves freely. You may have to dismantle the carb to get it to work freely. If it won't buy a carb kit and install all the new gaskets needle valves and jets ( this is a very good ideal any how) Also make sure any little ports in the carb are open ( in the bottom of the carb there may be tiny little holes that are plugged) find a very small wire to clean them with and also make sure when you are done you can spray carb cleaner thru them. This is why they have a small straw on the can with it ( watch your eyes and wear safety glasses as you never know where it will spray out from) That stuff will dry your skin out fast so don't get it in your eyes and you may want to wear rubber gloves. Also be very careful when putting back together as there are little pieces that like to slide around and fall out or may get bent even worse you don't want them in your motor. Also try to count every screw you turn as these are jets and you will want to put them back to the place they were set at cause it's a pain to get them set right by adjusting them later. Do not force anything putting it back as you may bend the jets or float and you will have to take it apart again and replace them as well. Take your time and be patient and you will be just fine

Testimonial: " gave me encouragement to give it a try. I took off the shroud, air cleaner box and couldn't take off the carb as there are no heads on the four bolts that hold it on. Looks like it was designed not to be removed? I took off an inspection plate on top of the carb and cleaned all of the channels and ports within with carb cleaner and compressed air...still no gas flowing thru carb...unless I force with compressed air. Any other thoughts? It is a twin cylinder OHV B/S. Thank you. "

SOURCE: engine will not start. good spark, have cleaned

There is a solenoid on the bottom of the bowl on the carburator. This solenoid shuts off the fuel when the key is in the off position. Remove the gas line, remove the connector on the solenoid and unscrew it from the bowl. Plug the connector back in with the solenoid removed and watch to see if the solenoid is pulling in the rubber stopper when you turn on the key. If not, check that the solenoid is receiving power. If not it's probably in the wiring. If it has power and doesn't operate, you need a new solenoid.

I have a featherlite 25cc 150 mph blower that has goos spark and the carb has been cleaned yet it wont start and is flooding fuel out the exhaust?

I seems you have answered your own question: combustion chamber the during exhaust stroke fuel remains in the chamber, or is being sucked in from the tank. Fuel pump diaphragm is the most likely suspect part; and is a routine wear out and replacement part. After replacing, be sure to maintain according to mfr recommendation for storage (generally it's to flush tank with un-oiled fuel before storing) to avoid early wear out of fuel pumps diaphragm.

I have a poulan leaf blower that will not sat for 2 years started once for about a minute

get a new plug and then check for spark. a spark checker is a better choice...and since I would be more inclined to believe you're not getting any fuel replace the carb and fuel lines. it's a waist of time trying anything else. just because you have fuel in the primer DOES NOT mean gas is getting to the engine. If you DO NOT have spark, but you have fuel, your spark plug WILL be fuel fouled (soaked with fuel)

My countax c300h will not start

Check for spark. If it has spark, then it is a fuel issue. Try a shot of ether in the carb. If it starts, then you know it is a fuel issue. May need to clean the carbureator.

Gp800 doesnt seem to be getting any fuel from tank to carbs any ideas

Are you positive the fuel lines didn't get reversed? Did the pulse line get hooked back up? can you feel any resistance in the fuel lines when you blow thru them?

No gas to spark plug on atv

carb float/needle sticking opening the carb drain will provide evidence if fuel is reaching fuel bowl, if fuel is present then i would suspect the carb is gummed up and it will need to be cleaned ( all jets/passages ) another area could be that the gas cap vent/line is plugged not allowing fuel to flow by gravity feed.

Stored over winter. New battery fresh fuel wont start. Doesnt seem 2 be a spark peugeot speedfight 2 03. Any advice thanks clive

When gas sits it will, turn to a gel to make it simple. this can block the very small holes in the carb. There is a very simple way to check if the motor will run without taken everything apart. remove the air filter, get yourself a can of carb spray, brake cleaner, or wd-40. Open the throttle the whole way and spary which ever one you choose to use into the air intake let the throttle go and try to start the motor. if it starts then you know you have a fuel problem. If not then the next thing to check is the spark plug, remove the spark plug from the motor, place the spark plug cap back on the spark plug put the spark plug on the motor and spin the motor with the starter and see if you get spark. If you go you know that you have a fuel issue. check this out and lme know what you find if you need help with cleaning the carb let me know.

I recently bought a 2002 kymco zing 125 ,it has been stood for a couple of years and not started.i have replaced the coil and new battery and also the cdi unit,it has had a new spark plug too and the carb...

You should replace the fuel also as fuel deteriorates over time.Drain the tank and replace with new fuel.Also drain the it will still have old fuel in it.

We have a countax 600ce and there is too much petrol going thro the carb. there doest seem to be any adjustment on the carb. any ideas the mower runs well while cold then spluters when warm and spark plugs...

Check the air filter isn't dirty and the choke plate is opening fully when the engine is running. If the carburettor has a float bowl, remove it ( hold a container under it to collect the fuel) This works like a toilet cistern keeping the fuel at a constant level in the bowl. Check the fuel shuts off when the float is pushed upwards. If it doesnt, the valve that cuts the flow may be dirty allowing the gas in the bowl to overflow into the carburettor. Examine the float, it may be punctured and sinking in the fuel. Clean out any dirt which has accumulated in the bowl.
