Most carb problems can be remedied with a carb. kit & cleaning.
However, this problem is solved by replacing the carb. 95% of the time.
not exactly what you wanted to hear.

when the primer buld is empty, when pushed it should push bubbles into the gas tank and when let go should draw fuel from the tank. the primer buld now when pressed pushes fuel into the carb and should not push back to the tank. when let go again it will draw more fuel from the tank. the inlet nipple on the carb should be the 3 oclock

Runs for a few minutes and then is starved for fuel.


Replace fuel filter in tank if you have not already done so. Also clean or replace air filter. Make sure there is no leak in primer bulb ((you should feel resistance after pressing several times before starting). Make sure there are no kinks in the fuel line to the carb (if you detach line from the carb fuel should flow from the tank. Otherwise you may have carb issues.

I HAVE A 2009 FRONT TILLER 500 SERIES. RAN FINE LAST YEAR. THIS YEAR STARTS AND STALLS. NEW PLUG, OIL IS OK.AIR FILTER IS CLEAN. IT HAS A FUEL PROBLEM. I CAN GET IT TO STAY RUNNING WITH THE PRIMER.DOES IT...


There are a few things to look at.First and easiest is check the primer bulb and fuel line for any cracks,and the in line fuel filter.Next is a filter on the end of the fuel line,inside the tank.If all of that is ok there is a small screen in the carb. you will have to tear down the carb to get it.

Started PB620-ST yesterday with some difficulty. However, ran until fuel empty. Refueled today, but will not start. Spark at plug ok. Fuel flowing, but seems to overflow into air filter compartment. ...


Sounds like your flooding the engine; I did the same thing. Wait a while to let the gas drain back to the tank. Use your primer bulb once and your choke for only ONE pull; then shut off the choke. Pull start without the choke 2-3 times and it should start.

Weedeater blower will not prime


The primer bulb sucks fuel from the tank to the carb. When the carb has enough fuel the remainder is sent back to the tank. When you replaced the fuel line did you use the exact length of line and did you re-install the filter. On some of the trimmers the filter is weighted and holds the line in the fuel. Good luck...Lee

Primer bulb won't re-fill.


Not sure about your particular set-up, but there is usually two fuel lines running from the fuel tank. One goes to the carb and the other goes on a fitting on back of the primer bulb. The primer bulb will have a second fitting with a line going to carb. Sounds like either a clogged or leaking fuel line to me. Hope this helps and good luck.

Gas leaking in a stream from other end of primer line


Something is causing the float in the carb to stick in a downward position. This float tells the carb when to cut off the flow, and stuck down it keeps the channel open for gas to flow through. Empty the gas and remove and thoroughly clean out the carb, making sure you hit the float bowl very well. Worst case the float could be bad. If cleaning it thoroughly doesn't get it, consider a carb rebuild kit from the engine manufacturer or replacing the carb.
