You cleaned the carb, but did you replace the carb neck to intake gasket? If so,tune the carb, set the float, check the air cleaner, replace the fuel filter. Replace the fuel. Replace the jets.

It sounds like you are lacking fuel, or have excessive air.

Any one of these things, or a combination of any will help.

Echo GT225 has new carb.but will not run without 3/4 choke lines clean spark arrester cleaned, new plug, good compression ,tank vent replaced ? stumped

New carb is supposed to run fine with no choke at all. But I have 2 instances where the new carb would run for sh-- unless I left choke setting at mid point. Went crazy cleaning out new carb, resetting idle and low and high mixture screws to no avail. But both were running great and and gas consumption was fine with that choke setting. Left well enough alone. both start and run great. You might want to do same.

Motor sat for eight yrs, cleaned carbs, motor will start but dies out , motor will run with choke almost closed, whats the solution ?

I do not have any information on what type, size or year engine you are referring to. Generally speaking it sounds like a clog is still present in the carb. Check the Main jet and the orifice leading to the small brass tube in the center of the carburetor venturi. Or it could be the idle circuit which is a pin hole or two behind the throttle plate. When you close the choke ( I'm assuming the engine has a choke plate not a primer) it will pull fuel out of the float bowl and feed the engine. So fuel is not going through the normal channels.

Your carb need to be taken apart and have all circuits cleaned and the float needle and seat cleaned (replaced) and float level set to level. Make sure you can blow compressed air through all the circuits. You can also get a welding tip cleaning kit to poke out the circuits. It most likely has "varnish" in the bottom of the float bowl still preventing enough fuel from getting to the ide circuit or the venture without assistance from the choke

When I move the choke to run the motor dies....even after 30 minutes of running.

No, but it sounds if the carb needs to be cleaned! Fresh fuel helps too. Check the spark plug and check the breather filter. Also you can crank the engine with the breather filter off and try to move the choke to run then. If it runs with the filter off then there is your problem! 1 question, has anyone try to work on it or adjust the carb in any way?

My poulan wild thing will start but will not stay running without holding the throttle. What should I do?

Get some sta-bil fuel stabilizer. add twice the amount recommended on the bottle for storage to your mixed gas. Empty out chainsaw tank and refill with the new mix. Rub for 2 minutes, then shut off. Remove cover over carb and spray inside carb, soaking it down good and cleaning all internal surfaces visible - allow to sit overnight.
Next day
Spray down carb with carb cleaner for about 15 seconds. Start saw, allowing 2 minutes to warm up and reduce choke. If saw stalls, restart and spray inside carb as it runs with choke on - keep motor at the highest rpms you can as you spray - spray in 2 second bursts, not allowing motor to stall from spray. If it stalls, change sparkplug and try again. You have varnish build up in the carb and are trying to remove it so the carb will work without the choke. This may take some time but it is the exact procedure I used for my Poulan Team Realtree last spring - I spent about an hour spraying and staring before it ran without the choke.
Good luck!!

Homelite gas trimmer will not run without half choke and throttle

You need to disassemble the carb. and spray with carb. cleaner. If you need tips on how to do this, just let me know. You may need a new carb. kit as well, but we won't know that until you first perform the first step, or if the carb. parts are more than 3 years old. If they are, then go ahead and buy the carb. kit and replace the parts.
