If a branch was already being chipped when it ran out of gas...you must clear the hopper of any chunks of wood in it. Pull the plug wire and use a metal pry bar to dislodge any pieces of wood. when the flywheel runs free, put the plug wire back on and the choke on. Try it now!!!

If you don't see an inline filter then the only filter is a screen in the fuel tank. Sounds like the engine is not getting the fuel it needs. Check the tank and clean as nessesary the screen maybe plugged. If you leave fuel in the tank for long periods of time with out using a fuel stabilizer your carb may need cleaning. Old untreated fuel turns into a varnish like substance. Check your fuel bowl and make sure there is not any dirt in it. You don't mention the engine manufacturer but, mine has the carb adjustment on the bottem of the fuel bowl. I have always used a fuel stabilizer and keep the tank full (filling it with a screened filter) with a added inline filter. In 20 years of my chipper-vacs life never have I had fuel problem.

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.

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.
