Possible solutions:
-Water or trash (or both) is in the gas tank which means you must empty all gas from the tank and refill with fresh gas. The carb. will need to have all old gas removed too. If this is the case you will want to empty your gas can too because it may be the source of the water/trash.

-Replace the priming bulb.

    your governor may need to be ajusted, if you know where it is you can do the adjustment your self it is very easy, you might need to remove the housing and the gas tank to reach it dependeing on the design of your lawn mower.

My quantum xts 50 after priming wont fire


does it start when you prime it or does it not start at all? if you prime it and it runs until the prime burns off then won't start again, try priming it again. If it starts and runs until the prime burns off again then it is a carburetor issue. It isn't supplying the engine with fuel to run after the prime is gone

I have a murray 4hp that runs 15 sec per prime then stalls.


First. try using Carb Cleaner from spray can to clean carb throat, and putting Carb Cleaner in fuel tank.
If this does not work-
Removal of Carb is probably needed. Sounds like Carb is clogged and needs to be cleaned.
If this is a Briggs engine and the Carb sits on top of the fuel tank, can be that the pick up tube from tank to carb is clogged.
