Reassemble without bending float tab.

MTD lawn tractor will start but dies after 3 seconds no matter where speed control is moved or left, choke adjusted, etc. First starting after 5 months.


If your fuel valve fully ON? Is there dirt in the tank? Is the filter clean? These are the the first things you should check.

Will run with full choke on but once i turn choke off it dies


The carb jets are clogged, it will have to be removed and soaked in carb cleaner. Sometimes that will not work either, and the carb will have to be replaced. Reason is, some of the carb passages are as fine as a human hair, so it's hard to get gunk and bad/dried gas deposits out.

You could try running something called Sea Foam (mixed in the gas)from Walmart through the tiller for a while, that MAY help somewhat.

My troybuilt yard pony riding lawnmower will start with the choke fully open and then dies immediatly when you take the choke off. It will only start and run with the choke fully open, but dies after 20-30...


Do you mean that you can start it normally using the choke (that would be choke CLOSED), but then it dies immediately when you move it to run (that would be choke OPEN)? And if you leave the choke in the starting position that it dies after 20-30 seconds?----- If I have that all right, then you definitely have a restriction in the gas supply. Drain all of the gas from the mower and don't use any old gas. If you have any more old gas (from last season) don't use it. If this mower has a gas filter, replace it. Put just a little fresh gas in the tank plus a little of the cleaner. Start it up, do that a few times if needed. Use a fuel additive such as Sea Foam to keep the gas from gumming up so fast.

I have a yard machines rear tine tiller with a 5.5hp b/s engine. its able to start time and time again w/ full choke and throttle but dies out


You need to rebuild the carborateur, it sounds like the diaphragm has played out, when you must use the choke to pull the gas through the carborateur

Tiller won't stay running


If you choke or prime the engine, it starts up for a second or two and dies, the carburetor need to be cleaned/repaired.
