Question about Garden

1 Answer

Hello, I have a Mountfield MC382 and it wont start. I have cleaned the plug, checked all cables and connections (OK), tried adjusting the mix to increase fuel a little. I stripped the carb and checked for any blockages etc and that seems OK. It all seems fine but it just wont start. If it is something to do with current how can I check the electrics. I had it running doing some work, I stopped the engine for a few minutes and went back to start it and nothing. Im getting no sign of life at all. Many thanks Richard

If it has poor spark, then you can file points down with file to clean them. if spark is good, then it may be bad diaphram or floats in carb depending on what you have.

My mountfield hp164 petrol mower starts but wont run smoothly even when the engine is warm it is constantly idling erratically


Check sparkplug ie remove and clean. Set gap normally 1mm. Check s/p lead has firm connection. Check manual for correct fuel requirements. Other wise take it to the mower repair shop. It's not worth your time to muck around with it. Too frustrating!

Wont start put new plug and new gas.


Did you check for blue, snappy spark at the plug (gapped at 0.020") when you replaced it? If ok, put some fuel mix into the plug hole and try for start--it should pop several times. If ok, check the fuel filter, air filter, and muffler for plugging. Check the fuel lines for any decay or other damage. Make sure the carburetor fasteners are tight. Does the primer bulb pull fuel into itself after several pumps? If nothing, remove the fuel line from the carburetor that has the filter inside the tank and place it on the primer port that has the line coming from the carburetor. Try to pump fuel again--if successful, then remove the carburetor from the engine and clean it inside and out with spray carburetor cleaner. Check the lower chamber diaphragm for flexibility and no cracks or holes. There is also a small mid-body filter that can easily plug with stale fuel mix. Hope some of this helps!

Hello, Effects and EQ hook up problem


Many of those connections REQUIRE using TRS cables (stereo style) rather than TS cables (mono style). It is possible you have mixed the cables if it worked before.

Any cable plugged into an "insert" should be a TRS (tip-ring-sleeve) cable.

Look up these connections in your 1604 manual.

I have an Echo Backpack Blower PB46-LN that is leaking black oil out of the muffler, its easier to start when its cold but when its hot it difficult to start, also I dont even need to prime it to get it to...


This senerio is an 'over-rich' condition, most often caused by an improper fuel/oil ratio mix, and the 'exhaust screen' or 'spark arrestor' on the outlet of the muffler is plugged. Cleaning the screen may be all that is needed to correct the problem. **Make sure this screen is clean, and operate engine for at least 5 minutes before making any of the suggested adjustments below.

Basics to check:
1) Spark plug - brown or dark brown - OK
a) is it carbon or fuel fouled
b) is there spark

2) Muffler remove for inspection
a) exhaust screen clean or plugged
b) inspect cylinder wall/piston as the flywheel is slowly rotated

Overfuel or 'rich' condition
Basics to check:
1) Spark plug - brown or dark brown - OK
a) is it carbon or fuel fouled
b) is there spark

2) Muffler remove for inspection
a) exhaust screen clean or plugged
b) inspect cylinder wall/piston as the flywheel is slowly rotated
3) Check Air filter for fuel saturation
4) Allow engine to run for 5 minutes to excess fuel from muffler
5) Fuel mixture ratio: Make sure the oil mix is per your manufactures recommendations
6) If after the above the engine is still smoking and blubbering:
Adjust carb mixture screws to a 'less rich' setting
*NOTE: only move mixture screws 1/8 of a turn at a time,
and try operation before any more adjustment

Describe your Husqvarna "Chain Saw -


Remove the spark plug and test for spark. If ok, try some starting fluid in the plug hole, install the plug, and try to start. If it runs a short time, it is not getting fuel. Check fuel lines including inside the tank. Clean or replace the air filter. If this saw is fairly old, the carburetor probably needs a re-kit and cleaning. Does it have good compression? Check the muffler for plugging. Make sure the fuel/oil mix is fresh. Good luck!

My 288 husqvarna wont start


Check for spark with a clean spark plug. If ok, squirt some starting fluid in the plug hole and try to start the engine. If you get a few pops, then work on the fuel system. Check the fuel lines from the tank to the carburetor for kinks, brittleness, or cracks. If it has a primer button, check the button for cracks or hardness and inspect it's lines. Do you have fresh fuel mix in the tank? Make sure the air filter is clean and in good shape. Check the muffler for plugging. If the saw is fairly old, the carburetor may need a re-kit and cleaning. Good luck!
