I can not find a reason why the engine runs wide open and will not idle down. The cable is good and works and if manualy done the unit will idle. Where can i find a parts breakdown?

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

Echo only runs wide open


Your question isn't detail enough such as.

Q: It starts up wide open with the trigger depress fully but when I release the trigger it dies.

A: The carburetor idle jet (Picture A item #27) is dirty/plugged. the carburetor needs to be taken apart and cleaned or it just needs to be turned out a bit to flow fuel or the idle screw that sets the idle speed (Picture B) on the carburetor need to be screwed in to open the flap a bit more. Your carburetor may not be like either of these two carburetors but close enough. If you need to figure out which carburetor you have to locate the idle jet look search for picture of your carburetor and that tells all such as in picture A.

Another couple things. In picture B you see the spring on the throttle shaft that closes the flap to idle. If that area is really dirty the flap could be stuck wide open. Make sure the it is free to open and close. If the chainsaw has had a lot of use the engine could be wore to the point at idle the piston isn't making enough compression for the engine to stay running even if you turn the idle speed screw (Picture B) in as far as you can.

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.

My briggs and stratton engine throttle cable and throttle body wont engage,always wide open


Are you sure it's not a new style Briggs that uses the 'throttle cable' just as a shut off? Many new mowers on;y start and run at High Speed

Kescorpio56:
Check your throttle and choke settings. Something is causing the throttle plate in the carburetor to remain open or the governor is improperly set. I would reset the air/fuel mixture screws to one and a quarter turns out and back the idle screw all the way out. Make sure that the throttle cable operates the throttle properly and check the governor setting and reset the governor setting if needed. Start the engine and adjust from there. When the engine starts, adjust the idle screw until the engine idles. Adjust the fuel/air mixture screws for the best idle. Then run the RPM up and adjust the fuel/air mixture screws for the best run/idle combination. Don't forget to adjust the governor if the engine runs too fast or too slowly.

look at the carb throttle linkage , remove the remote cable from your control box where it connects on the engine and move the linkage and is it free and springing back to tickover or is it stuck on full throttle , if stuck you need to remove all carbs and see which one or all are stuck and free off the butterflys !

Have a PB-250, ran great but now only runs full throttle, does not idle low.


You've been running the unit with the wrong oil to gas ratio and now the unit runs rich - there is no real way to fix it at this point - you can adjust the carb but it will not probably hold the idle you desire - but then again blowers are to be ran wide open 85% of the time so don't sweat it too much on this unit but practice better maintenance and a proper mix ratio in the future.

How do I adjust the carburator?


There are two needle screws that can be adjusted to make the engine run properly. Be certain that the carburetor is clean and the diaphragm is in good condition, and the fuel is new. The two needle screws mentioned above should initially be adjusted at one turn open from turned in all the way (lightly seated). Each of these needle screws performs different functions. One is for idle and throttle response (this screw is marked "L" and the other screw is marked "H". L and H are marked on the carburetor body and also on the plastic "shroud" near the adjustment screws. These screws are not interchangeable, being foolproof since the thread sizes are not the same. When properly adjusted the low speed screw (L) allows the engine to idle properly and throttle response will work properly. When the high speed screw is adjusted properly the engine will have correct power at full speed. Adjust the low speed screw so that the engine idles and when you squeeze throttle all the way to wide open the engine should not hesitate and should come up to full speed and when you drop the throttle it should idle nicely without stalling. Now adjust the high speed screw. Hold throttle wide open, holding it there while you adjust the high speed screw. If this scares you (be carefully so that the spinning chain does not cut you!) you may adjust the high speed screw at idle, turning it just slightly in or out. The high speed screw should be adjusted so that the engine does not run clean at wide open throttle but sputters slightly, slightly adjusted open from running clean to slightly sputtering. When under load (cutting a log) the engine should run clean. Good luck!
