It's probably not the fuel mixture if you didn't try changing it.

Check the fuel lines for cracks/breaks. If they are o.k., then:

You will need to disassemble the carburetor and spray with carb.cleaner. 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. Reassemble and start.

If the carb. parts are more than 4 years old, you may have to replace them.

If you need further assistance, just let me know.

My Weed Eater FL1500LE gas leaf blower will not run beyond the full choke setting. If I move the lever to half choke the engine will stop. Or if I move the throttle from full throttle to a lower speed...


This is a tell tale sign of a lean fuel mixture. By choking the unit you are manually creating a richer fuel mixture. I would purchase a compression tester from a local parts store and check compression. If that's ok, I'm willing to bet the problem is still carb related. Two stroke carbs are tricky to clean because of high/low ports that are one way and sometimes impossible to clean. Did you remove high and low needles when cleaning carb? Another trick is to mix seafoam with your gas, then mix two cycle oil to proper ratio. Use 2 ounces seafoam to one gallon of gas, then mix two cycle oil to proper mix. Hope this helps! Good luck and happy wrenching!

My craftsman weedwacker starts on full choke then at half choke it still runs but i have to really rev it and then when i move choke to off it dies


This is fuel starvation, start with easy things first, replace the fuel filter in the tank, check the condition of the fuel hoses up to the carb for splits, cracks or leakage, replace if required

My husqvarna 128ld starts and idles fast but only with the choke half on. Give it gas or take the choke off and it dies.


Possibly a fuel starvation issue, incorrect fuel air mix or an air leak within the fuel system

Mantis will only run when the choke is on. If I try to push the choke in it dies.


Having owned a Mantis for many years it sounds like your air/fuel mixture may be to lean when you push the choke in. First check the simple stuff. Make sure you are using fresh fuel with the proper 2-cycle oil mixture. Check or replace the fuel and air filters. Replace the spark plug annually. These are the routine maintenance procedures found in your owner's manual. If none of this solves your problem either the carb fuel mix adjustment screws are not set properly or a carb rebuild kit is needed. The proper setting for the mixture screws should be detailed in your manual. Removing the carb and replacing the needle valves, gasket and other items takes a little more expertise. Before jumping in to this and assuming all other maintenance has been performed press the fuel primer bulb several times before trying to start it. You should feel resistance after 3-4 pushes. If you don't feel any resistnace the carb is not being primed and the bulb needs replacement (you may notice a small fuel leak if this is the case). If you can get it primed, pull the choke out, start and let it run a minute or so. Then make small, gradual changes by turning the fuel mix screws (not the idle adjustment) as noted in your manual. Try to push the choke in half way or as far as you can without killing the engine. If may run a little rough but continue tweaking the screws until it smooths out a little. Gradually continue pushing the choke in and turning the adjustment screws as needed to keep it from stalling. This is best done with the tines supported off the ground during adjustments. Just make sure to protect yourself and others from coming in to contact with them. When set correctly you should be able to achieve full throttle with the choke fully closed. A little time and patience should get you up and going again. Of course you can always contanct Mantis at www.mantis.com or call them for troubleshooting assistance. Hope this helps.

My troy built starts but will not speed up enough to use even after it warms up. It is 2 years old but only has 3-4 hours of use on it . Can you help me?


Is it 2 cycle or 4 cycle? Meaning, does it take plain gas, or mixed gas?

Clean the plug, clean the carb with either choke cleaner (4 cycle) or wd-40 (2 cycle) by spraying it into the choke hole after you take off the air filter.

You may also want to spray some of the choke cleaner or wd-40 into the gas tank with the gas to help clean out the whole fuel system.

Only use choke cleaner for 4-cycle regular gas units. For mixed gas, use wd-40 in place of choke cleaner.

Try to start it and then go back and forth from half choke to full choke until it starts picking up.

Engine does not continue to run


Are you laying off the choke at any point? Full choke should only be used when starting a cold engine, it should run with no choke on full throttle. If there is not enough throttle i'd first try adjusting the tiny black screw on the carb beneath your air filter while you have it idling, letting the throttle have a little bit more room. If this doesn't work and you're running it properly than you may need to make some adjustments to the H L settings for your gas/air mix. This is also done while idling mind you and only with a clean air filter.

Starts full choke dies out runs for a few min at half choke dies out at no choke. noticed tank is full of air bubbles when running


First, you will need to check the fuel lines for cracks/breaks.

You will need to disassemble the carburetor and spray with carb.cleaner. Make sure the small screen in the carb. is free of debris. 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. Reassemble and start.

(NOTE: If the carburetor parts are more than four years old, and depending on the use, you will need a new carb. kit if the cleaning doesn't work.)

If you need further assistance, just let me know.
