Carb adjustment of Poulan weedeater GHT 220

I have a GHT 220 with very low hours on it. I pulled it out to use it and it will not keep running. I have pulled and cleaned the carburetor.. but no good. A friend that was here played with the green and yellow scrws before I put it back together. I didn't find this out until I put it together and it would not start. Then he admitted to it. Can someone outline where they should be or an adjustment procedure ? Thx in advance ! Scott

Hi, Anonymous and the usual suspects are:
1. Spark plugs in bad condition or partially fouled.
2. Spark plug cables in bad condition and leaking.
3. Spark plug gap too close or too wide.
4. Faulty ignition coil, module, and or sensor.
5. Battery nearly discharged.
6. Check battery terminals for damage or corrosion, check the battery cables at "BOTH" ends for loose, corroded, or broken connectors, "INSIDE" and outside the cable harness, perform connector wiggle test and check cables with an ohmmeter if necessary.
7. Intake air leak.
8. Water, dirt, or rust in the fuel system, carburetor and/or filter.
9. Fuel tank vent system plugged or carburetor vent line closed off.
10. Carburetor controls misadjusted.

How do you adjust a Stihl weedeater carburetor?


Oiless fuel ruins your compression. The trimmer should crank anywhere above 50 psi. A good place to start with the jets is 3/4 to 1 out. You may have damaged the new jets by srewing them all the way in. These small jets are often needle thin and can be damaged when bottomed out.

Yamaha 5200d it starts and runs 2/3 minutes and shuts down oil is full low oil lite does not light up carb is clean


This generator is equipped with an auto choke. What is likely occurring is as the engine warms up the choke is returning to the normal choke off run position leaning the mixture two lean to maintain operation of the motor.

This is occurring because the residual fuel that was left in the carburetor has evaporated and the gum residue is reducing the fuel flow through the carburetor. When the choke is applied the mixture is rich enough to support running and as the choke returns on its own to the run position the mixture leans out and the generator stalls..

Override the choke when the engine is starting to falter to confirm the problem. Continuing to attempt to run the engine possibly adding a carburetor cleaner additive to the gas will likely return the unit to normal operation.

If attempting to enrich the mixture by applying choke when the engine begins to falter does not work then a fuel flow problem to the carburetor may be the root cause. I would look for a plugged fuel filter or restricted fuel flow from the tank to the carburetor. What is happening is when the unit is at rest the carburetor is filling with gas and as it is running because of a restricted fuel flow the level lowers in the carburetor bowl resulting in a mixture to lean to run.

GHT 225 Trimmer Replaced primer bulb, Starts OK but, will not keep running.


Try adjusting the low side screw on the carb. Back it out about 1/8 of a turn at a time until engine continues to idle. If this this doesn,t solve your problem then you will have to disassemble the carb and replace the diaphragms and fuel filter screen.

My troy built 2200 pressure washer was running fine but then shut off instantly I then noticed it had low oil I filled it but now it won't start


9224467.jpg
Pressure washer takes oil in two places:
Pump oil is 20-30 weight SAE non detergent and comes half way up/ do not fill more than 1/2 way
Engine oil is 10W30 and comes half way up dip stick
IF you overfilled the oil >>> DO NOT turn power washer on it's side or upside down to drain oil >>> because engine oil will fill carburetor

When engine won't start
We pull off air filter so we have direct access to carburetor
Spray WD-40 into carburetor while starting
The engine will fire on the WD-40

You can keep spraying WD-40 into carburetor to keep engine running while moving choke to see if engine will run on it's own
Squeeze gun trigger so water comes out gun and pump pressure doesn't stop engine

If engine will not fire on WD-40
Spark is suspect
Your spark plug gets power from ignition coil
If coil is bad you get no spark > and coil needs needs replacement
Take out spark plug, clean it with WD-40 and use a bit of sandpaper in the spark gap
Put spark wire back on plug
Touch threads of spark plug to metal part of engine > pull cord and look for sparking between spark plug and engine
If you do NOT have any sparking, then coil is bad
If you HAVE spark, then your spark plug needs cleaning or replacement

If engine fires on WD-40 but will not keep running
Then either fuel or carburetor are suspect
Loosen hex nut on fuel filter located below gas tank >> if fuel flows, then re-tighten hex
Next, pull off rubber hose connected to carburetor to see if fuel flows to carburetor
If fuel is flowing to carburetor, then the carburetor is suspect.
Small engine repair shop will have carburetor cleaners

Check exhaust
There is a screen over exhaust
Make sure it is clean of carbon build-up > Use WD-40

Change air filter

I have a poulan pro pp4620avhd chainsaw. I can get it to start and stay running as long as I have the choke on. I can even run it at high speed using the choke control. When I pull the trigger to feed it...


Check the fuel filter and muffler for plugging. Check the fuel lines for condition. Check the carburetor fasteners for tightness. If the saw has a lot of hours, remove the lower section of the carburetor and check the condition of the diaphragm--it should not be hard/cracked. If everything seems to check out ok, Turn both jet screws CW to stops (lightly), then CCW each 1-1/2 turns. The engine should start and run--allow the engine to warm up. Pull the throttle full on and adjust H needle CW til the engine speeds up, but still 4-strokes. Proper adjustment is when the engine 4-strokes, but immediately 2-strokes when cutting. Let idle and adjust L CW so that the engine runs fairly well, but allows the engine to 'follow the throttle'. Adjust the idle speed screw so that the chain stops turning, but the engine continues to run. Hope this helps!

It would be best if the whole carburetor were soaked in carb cleaner and then blown out with compressed air. You could have a plugged up passageway in the carburetor. If you take this route and use comercially available carburetor cleaner, DO NOT put any rubber or plastic parts from your carb in the carb cleaner as it will ruin them. As for the jets, make sure you can see light through them. I usually take a strand of copper wire (like from stranded automotive electrical wire) and run it through the jets to make sure they are clean.
If this fails to correct the situation, check the engine's compression. Low compression will cause the engine to not run at low RPM. You need to see at least 140PSI of compression (throttle wide open) in order for the engine to idle. If the compression is low, adjust the valve tappet clearances. If this fails to bring the compression to a normal level, then the engine needs internal repairs.

Husqvarna chainsaw carburetor adjustment


Find the 2 screws. There will be a (h) high and (L) low. These are for hig rpms and low rpms. First tighten the screws. Then unscrew them about 1-1/4 turns. Then start the saw and let it warm up. Start with the high rpms first pull the trigger all the way then adjust the screw in 1/8 turns either way until it is running good at high rpms. Then work on the L rpms. Get the saw to idle then pull the trigger, there should not be any hesitation when going from L to H rpms. Just adjust the low same as the High. They have to work together so if the high is good and the low is not just right turn the h a small amount. If you have any more questions let me know
