SOURCE: I can not find a reason why the engine runs wide

Its obvious that your throttle cable must be bad if you can make throttle work by manually opening and closing it. check here for parts www.rcpw.com/search/ariens_search.htm

How do I get a powermate 8hp brigs and Stratton generator to idle. I bought it and it wouldn't start. I cleaned the carb and it started on 1st pull, now it won't idle it run wide open all the time.


You have jet clogged, or still some obstruction in the carb. Hopefully you have a good inline filter .I'd take it back apart all the Jets and seats & Chem soak or a cheap complete rebuild.

My engine is draining batteries. It starts and runs fine at first then struggles to start in future uses and will not restart if I stop.


The following is from the Briggs and Statton FAQ website:


Battery Not Charging

  • Engine RPM too low
  • Inline fuse "blown" (if equipped)
  • Defective battery
  • Loose, pinched, or corroded battery ground leads
  • Loose, pinched, or corroded battery charge leads
  • Open, shorted, or grounded wires between output connector and battery
  • Defective diode (open or shorted)
  • Defective or improperly grounded regulator-rectifier
  • Diode installed incorrectly (reversed)
  • Damaged battery (shorted battery cells)
  • Excessive current draw from accessories
  • Damaged alternator magnets
  • Defective stator

Wide open as in wide open throttle?? You mean the engine is racing? Something is wrong with the throttle controls, or the throttle valve in the carburetor may be sticking open. Look down the carb throat. At its base will be the throttle valves-"butterfly" valves just like the choke valve on top of carb. The throttle valve should be closed at rest, or at idle, or when gas pedal is not moved. Rotate the throttle lever on the carburetor by hand (when gas pedal is pressed down, the throttle is rotated). The throttle valve at the bottom of the carb should open and close with the throttle lever.
If the valve is sticking, spray some carburetor cleaner down it, and spray the outside clean, too. Work the throttle back and forth to make sure it is free to move.
For a high idle, have the carburetor adjusted. Timing should be checked, too-that can cause a high idle, but wouldn't cause it to go wide open.
Let us know what you find. Good luck.

35 horse engine running wide open kills, what might have caused this?


check at your Carburetor there are levers and rods connecting to your engine block, one of em is to keep engine from over revving, it needs to be adjusted regularly, as if it is not set right your engine will not respond very well.
