Try leaving your choke partially on it may not be getting all the gas it needs,see if it will run then, it wont run full throttle, but this will tell you its not getting enough gas

Why won't it start?


Use carburetor spray from now on, starter fluid does damage.

This may need an adjustment on the carb.

If you pull too manyoung times, it could be flooded.

Wait a little, now remove the exhaust, spray carb cleaner into the exhaust port and plug hole... give 2 slow pulls, just enough to make the cyclinder go up and down a few times, then give a normal pull...

Now if it starts and runs a few seconds, an adjustment is needed on the carb.

2 stroke wont start has spark gas and compretion tryed starting flued


Ok, well barringa safety switch that kills the coil...

If you sprayed carburetor cleaner into the plug hole, then reinstalln the plug, spray some in the carb as well... (pending it has spark and compression) it should at least start up a few seconds...

OR YOUR CARBURETOR NEEDS ADJUSTMENT. Locate the H and the L needles on the carburetor. Turn both all the way clockwise, snug not super tight. Now back both out counter clockwise one complete turn to point A. Now to adjustthe idle, adjustthe L needle. Counter clockwise in quartert turn increments.

To adjust the H, you will have to depress the throttle all the way at the same time you are adjusting the needle.

Also note, sometimes it will help to remove the exhaust and try starting it . Try that as well. Although you may not see a clog etc... the arrestorin these small mufflers still end up suffocating the airway ...

Clean or change air filter. Clean, gap or change spark plug. Empty gas tank add fresh gas with Stabil. When spark plug is removed pull rope several times to blow out cylinder. Spray starter fluid in spark plug hole before replacing spark plug. Clean outside of carb so choke works freely. Spray starter fluid into carb breather hole with air filter removed and try to start. if running replace air filter and cover. If no start disassemble carb and clean. If no start replace carb.

Cub Cadet has gas, has spark, has air -still won't start/run


Are you pulling the plug to check for wetness after cranking it a few times, WITHOUT using the starting fluid? Also, I would recommend using carb cleaner in place of the starting fluid. Starting fluid runs the engine VERY hot for a brief time and can possibly damage rings, valves, and aluminum parts.

Runs on starting fluid, not fuel. cleaned carb with carb cleaner(aerosol) ,still won't run. Primer (purge) bulb doesn't work properly. Spark plug dry, fuel lines clean. Diaphram problem or something...


Try spraying a little gas where you spray starter fluid. If it runs you may have to install diaphram kit. If it has a choke can get around primer not working.

I got spark to the spark plug and I'm getting gas to the engine and it still won't start is there a safety switch some where that i may not know a bout? Model #917377070 craftsman lawn mower 6.5hp


First, spend 1.50 for some starting fluid at WalMart.
Spray it into the carb air filter and try to start it again.

If it fires and runs for a few seconds, you have a clogged gas filter (in the gas tank) or a bad fuel line or a dirty carb. You can try adding a small amount (1/2 ounce) of carb cleaner to the gas a see if that gets the dirt our....

Does the spark plug get wet with fuel when pulled through? If dry, try spraying a little starting fluid in the plug hole and reinstall the plug. If it pops at least once, you have fuel delivery problems--look for hardened/ cracked fuel lines. Clean the muffler arrestor screen. When the muffler is off, check the condition of the piston skirt and cylinder wall for deep scoring or obvious wear. Make sure the primer button (if equipped) is filling with fuel when pumped a few times. If it doesn't, make sure the bulb is not hard or cracked and check the lines going to and from it. Check the carburetor bolts and nuts for tightness. The fuel filter in the tank could be plugged, fish it out and check. If you have checked all these items, it may be time to clean and rekit the carburetor. Hope this helps!

Sounds like you need to clean the carb ports, lines, jets, etc... purchase a carb spray cleaner with a tube to place on the spray head (Berryman's Chemtool B-12 is awesome). Take the carb loose from the generator, and remove the bowl, needle valve and spray carb cleaner thru all the holes, lines in the carb. Reinstall complete with air cleaner and retry... also if the gas is old, drain and replace with new...

Wont start after 6 mos. I changed the spark plug, drained & added fresh gas, checked the fuel filter... Kicks over fine. Ran for 4 seconds, then it died. Always ran & started great before.


With a new plug and fresh gas it should start. Check to make sure there isn't a kill switch turned off or that the gas petcock from the tank to the carb is on.

How did you check the fuel filter? Disconnecting it from the fuel line that goes to the carb is the best way, making sure the gas is turned on under the tank. Bleed off a little gas into a can or something just to make sure the filter isn't plugged.

The last thing I'd do is take off the air filter and spray a little starting fluid in the carb. It may start and run several times if there is old gas in there somewhere. Remember the bowl on the carb is probably still full of old gas. After some fresh fuel reaches the plug it should start and continue to run.

(You might drain the bowl on the carb of ols gas before you go any further)

Good luck!

Wont start, not getting fuel, checked lines,carb and used starter fluid, runs but won't continue to run


You may need to do a more detailed cleaning on the carburetor. I like to use a Den Tek Brush, (used for cleaning teeth), to get into the small ports. They work great for this job. You may also need to check the small screen in carb. It gets blocked with debris.If you need further assistance, please contact me.
