You may have a clogged fuel filter. Or you may be using fuel mixture over 30 days old. The manufacturer's school this year told us any fuel over 30 days old is considered "bad Gas".
The diaphragm in the carburetor may have gotten stiff not pumping fuel like it is suppose to do.
The fuel we are getting in this part of the U.S. has 10% ethyl alcohol in it.
This makes part that are suppose to be flexible go stiff.
Hope this helps.
Good Day.

My ust gg2300 gas generator installed new carb runs 3to 4 minutes then dies


Maybe when the ignition coil heats up it will not produce any spark to the spark plug. Run the engine until it stalls and remove the spark plug and put the plug wire back on and ground the plug to the engine. See if you get spark at the electrode of the spark plug when you have some one pull the starter rope with the switch on the run position.

there's a vent on the carb they might've have missed, the line could be clogged. insects and mud get in them. plus it could be the petcock on the tank. take it out and make sure the screens, are cleaned etc.

check your fuel filter/gas line in tank you could have a crack in your line that in the fuel till it gets below half tank then sucks air through crack, It's a possibility, other than that, check your exhaust port, but sounds like a fuel problem check your fuel tank vent also to make sure it is venting. Good Luck

Ryobi 30cc was running ok and then cut out. Not been able to re-start since


First check vent in fuel cap to make sure it is not clogged, then check to see if fuel filter inside the tank is obstructed or if fuel intake line has softened and is possibly collapsing...pump primer bulb and see if it is sucking gas into the carb...next choke engine and try to start...if it doesn't start pull the spark plug to see if cylinder is getting fuel...if so re attach plug to the plug wire and ground plug to cylinder head....pull start handle and check for spark at electrode of plug....or put a little gas in plug hole and re-install plug ....pull starter handle a couple of times and if engine starts and runs for a second, you have spark....Your problem sounds suspiciously like your carb has ingested some trash and is clogged which will necessitate a good cleaning and re-tuning...possibly a rebuild...Hope this helps... ;-D

I have a Echo Weed Eater, it starts and runs, but won't rev up


you can take the screen out altogether-ive done that for almost 20 years.That is probably your problem.You can also change the fuel filter in the gas tank.There is usually enuf slack in the gas line in the tank that you can get the filter to the gas tank opening and hold it w your fingers or pliers and remove it.Be careful with pliers to not gouge fuel line and just pull filter firmly off fuel line.There may be a tiny metal ring that helps hold fuel filter on to fuel line.Try to kind of hold it in place as you pull filter out of fuel line.If you lose it its not a big deal.Most filters fit snug onto a fuel line anyway.-A good way to get the filter to the mouth of the gas tank to work on is to empty all the gas and take a metal clothes hanger and bend it so you get a little hook in it and kinda "fish" for the fuel line w filter attatched.Within minutes you'll figure it out and get the filter up to the mouth of the gas tank where you can work on it.If you dont have enuf slack to work you can disconnect the fuel line at the carb and pull yourself a little slack.Dont go more than about 1/2 -3/4 inch though.----along w the muffler screen(located behind plate that is attatched to muffler with 3 small screws)(check plate itself for ability for air to pass thru-can clean it out with tiny screwdriver)-you can also take entire muffler off(two allen screws)that reveals a look at port where all the exaust comes from.If that area is choked with carbon you'll have a problem.Some weedeatwers get it bad some dont.So...check clean or remove(screens clog up fast) muffler screen located under plate thats attatched to muffler-----while plate is off check it for carbon buildup(you can hold up to the sun and see if sunlight goes thru it-that will tell you)-------take muffler off and look at exaust port(if dirty scrape carbon carefully out-turn machine upside down,tap with something,etc...no biggy)-----fuel filter.Also check air filter though probably not your problem unless its totally caked with stuff or getting soaking wet somehow.The only two main other things would be a plug or the thing attatched to one of the gas lines called a vent-just a little thing that pops on to the end of a line.I dont think the air filter ,vent,or plug is your problem-especially the vent or air filter.Its probably exaust related or fuel filter.---make sure youre gas mixture is right and make sure the gas isnt real old.---Ive had echos for 20 years-hope it wasnt too much to digest.Its all simple really-was just tryin to be descriptive to help u as much as possible.good luck

The plugged vent gets my vote. Loosen the fuel cap when it starts to starve.
