Sounds like your carb is flooding. Inside the carb, there is a simple valve that shuts off the fuel flow when the fuel bowl is full. If this valve fails, or if the float sinks, then too much fuel is forced into the cylinder and will wash past the rings and into the crankcase. This causes the engine to run very rich. You need to remove, clean and overhaul the carb, and change the oil and sparkplug and probably the air filter too. Find the model, type, and code numbers on the engine and go to www.partstree.com , www.ordertree.com , or your local repair shop to get the needed carb overhaul kit. Some B&S engines have an option of carbs, so look for a name on the carb itself...probably Nikki or Walbro. The carb kit is not very difficult to install, but make sure to get everything very clean before reassembly.
Good luck.

5 hp briggs & stratton on a chipper/shreader


if the starter rope fails to retract, then you need to either fix a broken spring, or put a new one in. You'll have to take the engine cover off, and you'll be able to see how to take apart the retractor assembly. Often times, just the end of the spring will break off, and if you have a grinder, you can grind the correct shape in it again, and reinstall it as is.

Troy-Bilt Chipper Shredder won't start


It takes good gas, good spark, and good air for a gasoline engine to run well. The next thing I would do is put a new air filter in it.

Magneto coil adjustment is normally about 1 newspaper thickness for a guide. The spark plugs for these small engines usually are preset in about the right range, & I rarely gap then when I work on the small engines. Also check your carb to make sure its clean while you are at it. Rick
