This is probably a fuel related problem. Use FRESH gasoline - drain old if from last season. Remove and clean or replace the spark plug with new. If still not starting, it could be the carburetor float or passages. Before removing and cleaning, you should google rebuilding you carburetor FIRST; as there are many small - easily lost - parts that do not come in the rebuild kits - which would leave you out of luck.

Replaced muffler engine turns over but won't start


Remove muffer. You left a plug or plate in there. The engine can't breath.

I have a Ryobi 30562 it wont start


Check spark arrestor on the muffler to see if it is clogged.

If not clogged remove muffler and check the piston and cylinder condition. Check for struck rings.

Note: These engine requires at least 100 psi to start so a compression test isn't out the question.

91 ford explorer turns over , tries to start


The catalytic converter or muffler maybe plugged up. This is based on the engine getting fuel and fire to the plugs. I would remove the 02 sensor ahead of the cat. and see if truck will start, be aware if it does start it will run rough. When the cat or muffler get blocked off it puts back pressure on the engine and thus not allow fuel into the cyl. to fire.

Replaced gas line and primer bulb. cleaned carb, but not sure which direction the diaphram goes in. Machine idles but spits gas from top of carb and dies when throttle is pushed. Gas line routing? Seems...


If the engine dies when you try to speed it up chances are your muffler is the problem. Any equipment that uses a gas/oil will eventually have a stopped up muffler due to carbon buildup. This restricts the air flow and the engine won't run or open up. First take the muffler off and see if you can start and adjust the carb with it off. Turn both the air and the gas adjustment screws all the way in, then back them both out one and a quarter turns. Start from there.
Unstop the muffler by throwing it in an open fire for 10 to 15 mins or using a torch to burn the carbon out. There is a screen in the muffler that I would toss out (unless you live in California) for the only purpose it serves is catching carbon. Let the muffler cool on its own, don't cool with water or you will warp it and it won't seal right. Also while the muffler is off check the muffler port and scrape off any buildup there with a knife. Hope this helps.

Engine will only run on 1/2 Choke


Hello edv40026:

Have you Checked the Exhaust Port and Muffler for Restriction?
From your Description it Sounds like the Exhaust Port or Muffler is Restricted with Carbon Deposits, the Carburetor Metering Pump Actuator Gap is Incorrect or the Compression is Low (Worn Rings/Cylinder).
>>The Following is a Basic Instruction File for Doing a Diagnostic on the Engine for this Problem. Any Input is Appreciated.
>>**Remove the Muffler and Make Sure the Exhaust Port is Clear.
>>If it is, then Try to Start the engine with the Muffler Off.
>>If it Starts and Runs Properly, then Clean the Spark Arrestor Screen in the Muffler or Replace the Muffler if Required.

Is the Fuel Line from the Fuel Filter Staying Full of Fuel?
The Carburetor Metering Jet Actuator is Set so the Pump Diaphram Dowl is Just Touching the Actuator Arm. These Components are Located Under the Cover with 4 Small Screws Holdong it to the Carburetor Body.
Please, Do Not Hesitate, If you Hit a Snag or this Does Not Correct the Problem, I am Here if You Require More Assistance.
Hope this Helps. Let me Know What Happens, Please. May the All Mighty Bless You and Yours. Be Safe and Be Happy. Thanks.

Good Luck
