SOURCE: FL 1500 blower won't start

I have the same problem with mine . The FL 1500 model is a older model and the lines that run from the tank to the carb could be brittle and cracked like mine . The only way mine will fire is to spray starting fluid in the carb . It will run for a short time and die like its not getting fuel and everything else checks out ok and im trying to find a new tank and lines for mine at this very moment . The lines had cracks in them everywhere and i believe you have to buy the lines and tank as a unit so if i can find one and get it working ill let you know .

SOURCE: starts runs min. or two then stops....

Go to toro.com then click customer care, then click manuals and parts. Type in model no. and download the owners manual. This should get you the spark and flywheel gap. Probably still something in the carb. Some orifices are very hard to find and to clean but they must be clean. Also check for dirt dopper nest in the muffler.

Should be two fuel lines coming from fuel tank grommet. One feeds the carb's primer plate and the other returns from the same. Open the fuel tank and observe while pressing the primer. If you see fuel pumped INTO the tank while pushing the primer and pulled FROM the tank when the primer is released, you're OK. If not, the lines are backward. Filtered line is on SUCTION side of primer bulb. Unfiltered line is on PRESSURE side of primer and is simply a return to the tank.
Next, concerning the coil: Air gap should be .010 inch at the magnet. Echo ignition coils are warrantied for life to the original purchaser, so don't tamper too much with it. Check gap and check fire with a spark tester. If no spark with switch in on position, take it to an AUTHORIZED SERVICING dealer, found here.

Hope this helps,

Why will my McCulloch Mac 2816 not run?


If the plug has been drowned in fuel it is likely that it will not be giving you a hot spark, if any at all.
I'd start by removing the spark plug and with the ignition switch off, pull the starter cord a few times to clear the cylinder.
Then install a new plug (or cleaned and heated with a torch used one) and try to start it. Since you had the carb apart, be ready to tune the fast and slow screws.
Once these saws are running correctly, they seem to want to keep running forever.

Cheerfuls.

B&s engine on mower turned upside down, won't start now.


Take the spark plug out, turn ignition key or pull rope until the engine turns over several times. Let it sit for about 5 or 10 minutes and repeat. Replace the spark plug with a new one. Make sure that your crankcase is not over filled or under filled with oil, and make sure that there is plenty of gasoline in the tank. Make sure that gasoline cap and oil cap are on "securely". Now try to re-start. (The engine may smoke for a while, but it should clear up in a few minutes).

My blower stops working after a few minutes and then shuts off


When it shuts off pull the plug wire and using a spark tester see if yo still have spark. If you have no spark you probably need a new coil. If you stil have spark put the plug wire back on and spray a little ether *(product usually called "instant start") and see if it starts momentarily. If it does your carb is in need of a cleaning. Most have tiny screens that plug up over time. Replacing this screen is recommended. Cleaning almost never works!

Basement flooded and got approx 12 inches of water in bottom of dryer let sit for a week to dry before trying when pushing start button will come on but wont continue running unless you hold button in ...


Sorry to say but you will need to replace the motor. After water gets in you can rarely save the motor no matter how long you let it dry.There is an internal over load inside the motor that is cutting out after 30 seconds and once it cools for 15 or 20 minutes then it resets .Hope you found this information helpful and thank you for using Fix ya.

I have a McCulloch Model PM 310 , Gas Chainsaw. How would the spark plug be accessed?....Rich


Storing a chain saw for longer than 30 days requires storage maintenance. Unless the storage instructions are followed, fuel remaining in the carburetor will evaporate, leaving gum-like deposits. This could lead to difficult starting and result in costly repairs. Never store a chain saw for longer than 30 days without performing the following procedures:
Remove the fuel tank cap slowly to release any pressure in tank. Carefullydrain the fuel tank.Start the engine and let it run until the unit stops to remove fuel from carburetor. Allow the engine to cool (approximately 5 minutes).
Using a spark plug wrench, remove the spark plug.
Pour 1 teaspoon of clean 2-cycle oil into the combustion chamber. Pull starter rope slowly several times to coat internal components. Replace spark plug.
Store the unit in a dry place and away from possible sources of ignition such as a furnace, gas hot water heater, gas dryer,etc. When removing the unit from storage, be sure to perform the following procedures:Remove spark plug. Pull starter rope briskly to clear excess oil from combustion chamber.Clean and gap spark plug or install a new spark plug with proper gap.Prepare unit for operation.Fill fuel tank with proper fuel/oil mixture.

This will help. Thanks, please keep updated. please do rate the solution positively .thank you for using fixya

Craftsman 25cc edger has trouble starting. once started it will run for 5 - 10 minutes and then shut shut off. Will not start again until it cools down. Changed the spark plug , but it has the same pr


Dump the fuel in the tank, get new gas and new oil and start over. Get a carbeurator cleaner additive for the gas as your carb. is dirty resulting in the sporatic operation.

A spray carb. cleaner that you squirt into the air intake by removing the air filter will also work for you. In fact, when you are getting the carb. cleaner get a new air cleaner and a new spark plug. get back and let me know how u make out.
