SOURCE: My leaf blower will not start, It keeps flooding

To start: turn the choke off, hold the throttle wide open and crank. You have a carb problem but this should get you going. John

SOURCE: Mantis 2-stroke tiller won't start

This could be one of several problems...
• Last year's fuel. Get some fresh gas.
• Every 2-stroke needs a new spark plug each year... you know what that means.
• Clogged carb jets due to storing the tiller over the winter with fuel in the system. Never, ever do that. Now you'll need to pull the carb apart and clean it. Most of the orifices are so tiny you can't see them. Good luck.
• Engine is so old the crankshaft seals have hardened with age. This is one reason no 2-stroke lasts longer than about 8 years. If the seals are shot, then it will cost more to fix than a new one costs. Time to toss it.

SOURCE: carburetor adjustment

it would be a lot easier if you take the cover off the top of lawn mower.
find the carb, it usually sits near gas tank, there should be a screw sticking out of it. tighten until it runs normal. also adjust the air intake/ throttle arm on carb

SOURCE: riding lawn mower keeps flooding

It sounds like the inlet needle seat is not closing all the way,allowing fuel to overfill the carburetor.The inlet needle seat may have dirt in it.You will have to remove the carburetor bowl and check for dirt or debris in bowl,if so remove the float assembly and check for a peice of dirt between the inlet needle and seat.If there is none you may have to replace the carburetor or rebuild it with a carburetor kit.You should also chang the engine oil because the overfilled carburetor drains to the crankcase,filling it with fuel,check the oil level and see if it is high,that would indicate fuel is in the oil.Hope this helps

SOURCE: carburetor flooding

Not familiar with this model, but this is exactly how the smaller ones behave when the carburetor diaphragm is shot. Larger engines usually have a float system with needle and seat in which case the problem is either a leaking needle/seat assembly or saturated float.

Lawnmower will not start. Have spark and fuel. Seems as if it is flooded. Spark plug wet with gas and gas coming out of air filter area. How do I solve this problem?


sounds like the needle is bad letting gas flow freely into the carburetor . should check carburetor to see if needle is bad and replace. take spark plug out and try to start it just to blow the gas out of the compression chamber. put plug back in and it should run like a new one.

I have a 79 New Yorker with a 318 it has a hard time starting we just replaced air filter,fuel filter and lines plugs, Roter and cap it floods real easy


The old chryslers are very touchy. It sounds like the float is stuck on the carburetor flooding the engine or it is stuck closed not allowing enough gas to get into the cylinders. Pull a spark plug and see or smell if there is gas on it.If so is there spark? You have solid state ignition I believe. Pull a spark plug wire off of a plug and hold with insulated pliers and see if you are getting spark to the plugs. The engine needs air, fuel and spark to run. Check firing order for the wires 1,8,4,3,6,5,7,2 is the firing order. That should get you started. Let me know if you need more troubleshooting.

My pgo t rex 125cc wont start, has gas, clean air filter,new s/plug,new battery,dont get spark when i remove plug wire +hold near earth, help pleae


motors need three things to run. Fuel, Oxygen, and Ignition (spark).
If you leave motorcycles set for a long time, the gas in the carburetor will turn to lacquer. If that is the case no fuel will get to the spark plug. Spraying starting fluid in the air cleaner or carb can prove this, and it will start and run for a couple seconds then die.
If you can smell gas, you have either no spark or it may be flooded. If you don't have spark, find out if there is a blown fuse, or a shorted wire.

I have a Craftsman Snow Thrower model # 247.881731. At the end of last year I drained the gas as recommended in the manual, this year I filled it with fresh gas and it now has a problem starting. I pu


Draining the gas from the tank doesn't drain the float bowl in the carburetor. It still had last year's gas in it. Gas will start to turn to varnish if left sitting 6 to 12 months. You'll probably have to remove the carburetor, disassemble it and clean it out with Gumout carb cleaner or some similar product.
When you get it running and the snow's over and done with, put some Stabil in the gas tank to prevent the gas from converting to varnish and then start it up and run it until that stabilized gas is through the carburetor and into the engine. You can leave it with the treated gas in the tank.

My 98 xr400 will not start. It seams to be flooded but it doesn,t even sputter if I don't move the choke at all. If I put the choke on half open it almost starts but then I think it floods. I changed...


Check to see if you have spark. Put a plug in the cap and touch the cylinder , kick it over to see if the plug is sparking. I kick mine 2 or 3 times to prime the cylinder holding decompression lever in. If it pops on full choke but does not start I go to half choke. If it does not start after 3 or 4 kicks , then I turn off the choke and kick it over 5 or 6 times with the decompression lever pulled to clear it. Then I will kick with no choke or half choke. Honda's are notorious for being cold blooded so when it starts let it warm up and do not be afraid to drive a short distance on half choke till the motor warms up a little.
When the machine is hard to start after sitting I usually start by removing the carburetor and shooting carburetor cleaner through the jets and passageways.I have always found my 96 xr400 to be a dependable starter with fresh gas and a clean carburetor. If it is flooded use the decompression lever to clear the cylinder.

I have a home lite ut 21546 and i put the exact mix ration with gas and then ,when i start to run the carburator come start to expulse gas and dont run


It appears that the carburetor is "flooding" in your case. Several different things can contribute to this problem, but primarily it is because you have eithter 1. Tried to pull start it an excessive number of times with it choked 2. The carburetor is dirty and requires disassembly and cleaning.
If this continues to happen, you will need to look at the carburetor closely and inspect it. To "dry" the machine out after it becomes "flooded" you can remove the spark plug (make sure it is clean and gapped properly as this can cause a no-start issue) and pull on the starter to expel the unburnt fuel out of the engine.

Stihl 011 av wont start


Flooded? Try a new plug, or get that one cleaned up. If it is sparking and wet, it should fire, even if it doesn't run, it should spark. Did you put the jets or the needle valves back to where they were? I think they start out at 1 1/4 turns out , then adjust the low and high. If it is fouling out with too much gas, the low speed jet is open too far.

Chainsaw started just fine last night....won't start today.....pulled the plug and appears to be flooded


Hi wildcatlee,

I would love to help you with your problem. OK so if they chainsaw appears to be flooded or is flooded take it apart start by taking off any covers. Then there should be a little carburetor take that off and clean it out real good blow it with the air compressor. Open the chainsaw and find where the pistons at if you find it then blo that out with air from an air compressor real good. now put it all back together and it should start. One last thing take off the spark plug and clean it and put some gas on it, It should work now
