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

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.

If you have an oil level switch on this generator, it could be that you have low oil level or the switch is bad. Check the oil level. Bypass the oil level switch.

How old is the fuel in the tank, and how full is the tank? Fuel goes bad with time due to the ethonol turning to gummy varnish like substance. Not keeping a tank full allows condensation to form on the inner walls, contaminating the fuel with water. Drain the tank completely and fill with new gasoline.

How did you "clean the carb?" If it was not completely disassembled, soaked in carb cleaner, and all jets and ports blown out with air, you could have blockages from the "bad gas."

I spray carb fluid into the air intake and it runs. As soon as I stop spraying the carb fluid it stops running?


Hi, Making sure the gas is turned on,
Well the engine is not getting gas. If you have old gas in the unit the gas may have "jelled". A emptying of the tank and cleaning of the fuel line along with taking the bowl off the carburetor and spraying upwards into the carburetor, including around the float and needle and seat, may work. As always the carb cleaner is flammable so caution is good. Luck to you.

yes gas will deteriate and leave varnish deposits clogging carberator and layer in tank has yellowish color flush lines with brake cleaner and spray carb with spray carb cleaner and spray inside fuel inlet on carb let sit about 15 minutes redo and sit about 4 times clean fuel tank with brake cleaner (with tank off) until clean, refill with fresh gas and add about table spoon carb cleaner per quart of gas and let in run for awhile. when storing for any period of time add fuel stabilizer to avoid this issue in future

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...
