SOURCE: gas leak out or the carburetor

Thiis usually caused by a failure of either the float valve or the float itself.

Bad float needle valve: If some dirt or other particle gets stuck on the needle valve or seat, the valve will not be able to completely close and fuel will continue to flow into the bowl and eventually overflow. A new needle valve and seat are < $5.00 on-line.

Bad float: If the circular float gets a hole in it, fuel will get inside and the "float" will get heavy and no longer float on top of the fuel in the bowl. Because it doesn't float it will not rise high enough to push the needle up into the seat and keep extra fuel from entering the bowl. A new circular float is < $10 on-line.

I have gas in my oil


I am going to assume that this is a model built before 2007 and has a carburetor. The only way gas could get into your oil that I can think of is through the carburetor. It seems you may have a slow leak from a bad carburetor float valve. It must be leaking from the carburetor to the piston area and then seeping by the piston rings to the crank case. The only way to correctly fix this (if that is the case) is to repair the leak by usually rebuilding the carburetor. In the interim, after you have changed your oil, make sure that you turn your gas off whenever you park the bike to prevent the gas flow and only turn it on when you are going to ride it and when you stop to park (no matter how short a time) turn it off.

Gentron 10000w generator has a leaking carburator


Your carburetor float valve may be stuck open. You'll have to remove the carburetor, remove the sediment bowl at the bottom of the carburetor (where the float is), and check the float. Is it filled with gas? Replace the float if it is. If the float is dry inside, then remove the float and clean the needle valve & seat. (be careful to note how the float pin, linkage, spring, etc. are positioned so you properly reassemble. After cleaning & reassembling, turn the carburetor upside down & try blowing into the gas line connection on the carburetor. You shouldn't be able to blow air. Turn the carburetor right side up & repeat. If you can blow air into the carburetor's gas line connection, the float valve & seat are properly working. Reinstall the carburetor. You should be good to go.

Gas leaking from Ariens 42" 93603700


sounds like the carburetor Needle valve is sticking. A good Carburetor cleaning will fix that ...The easiest way to semi fix the problem is to buy a Small Shut off valve (about $6) and put it in the gas line between the gas tank and the carburetor. Then shut that valve off every time you finish mowing. This Ethanol gas that we are forced to use is a carburetor killer..

Gas going out of tank when sitting up not running


Is the gas leaking out of the tank? Is the gas leaking from the carburetor? Where is the gas going? There have been issues related to the brass seat in some of the carburetors. The fuel leaks internaly in the carb. and "spills" over into the crankcase. This is noticeable by gas in the oil when you remove the dipstick. If this is what is happening, you would need to have the needle and seat replaced in the carburetor or replace the carburetor itself whichever is easiest. Hope this helps in some way.

I have a 7 year Craftsman 17.5 HP 42 in. lawn tractor. It starts to leak gas recently and stops frequently after running over 30-40 minutes. I can not identified where is the gas leak from but I saw gas on...


I have a Craftsman mower. Last year I had a similar problem with the mower stopping after running awhile. I noticed that the plastic gas tank was collapsing. The next time it began to stall, I immediately loosened the gas cap and it didn't stall. The vent holes in the cap had plugged up. Check this out.
I can't help you locate the fuel leak, although it sounds like the carburetor float is not stopping gas from flowing into the carburetor.
