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 on:
1. Fuel line replacement or
2. Carburetor kit replacement

Just let me know.

    Where are the portals that can become blocked. not on their parts list.

    When you take the carburetor apart, you will see a number of very small holes (portals). Use the Den Tek brush to clean these portals. Dirt particles get lodged in them, not allowing fuel to flow properly. As soon as you get these cleaned out, reassemble and start.

SOURCE: Gas Trimmer will not stay started

Many times with a gas mix, after sitting for a while, the mix separates and gums up the carb. Taking the carb off and soaking it overnight in a parts or carb cleaner and running carb cleaner through the tank and gas lines will cure this.

04 330 magnum will not stay running without choke pulled out halfway to full choke from brand new in 2004


First make sure the carb.mounting flange is tight. being loose or cracked will allow air in leaning out the air fuel mixture. Next remove the low jet in the carb. its most likely plugged. try carb cleaner and blow it out with compressed air. Last resort,take the paper off of a twist tie and run it through the jet. If all else fails,buy a new one.thier only around 4 dollars.

Bought a McCulloch M3414 started okay yesterday wont start today maybe I flooded it, pulled cord so many times


1. set on/off switch to on, 2.prime it first, push the bubble about 6x 3. pull the choke all the way out, 4.pull trigger and string simultaneously 5. push in choke halfway try again, pull choke back out and etc. should start after repeating steps 4 and 5 3x or 4x when it does start, pump the gas at half choke then let it idle untill it stops push in choke all the way and it should start. don't forget to check the safety bar in front of the handle usually works with most gas operated tools

I cant start my leaf blower


I would suggest a new plug and fresh gas and oil mix.push the primer bulb 8-10 times and turn choke to full.pull cord about 4 or 5 times until it starts.if it don,t stay running turn choke to half and pull cord until starts should stay running.let run for about 10 seconds then turn off choke.Almost forgot that during this whole process you hold throttle wide open.

Hard starting on a Makita line trimmer? How do I solve this issue?


Try pushing the primer 8-10 times hold the throttle wide open and turn choke too full.when it starts it will probably quit turn choke to halfway and start again.should stay running.If that don,t work carb needs to be rebuilt or replaced.

Mantis tiller sv-4 echo engine no spark from coil mantis 2cycle tiller i got it running tryed to start it 4hrs latter same old problem wont start, plug wet with gas wont start. coil was checked by shop...


Sounds like it's flooding either from over choking or the inlet needle in the carb is leaking. Have you removed the plug and blown out the cylinder and plug with air and then tried to restart? Be careful not to keep cranking with the choke pulled out. When it 'hits' ONE time, move the choke halfway in and crank again
