There should not be a vent hose--it probably goes to a port on the primer bulb. Check the fuel filter for plugging and the condition of all fuel lines (they should be original rubber, not plastic replacements). Try priming the carburetor with the bulb pump--it should pull fuel into the bulb after several pushes. If nothing, check the condition of the primer bulb--it should be soft without cracks or holes.The primer is supposed to pull fuel from the tank's fuel filter, into the carburetor top section, pass into the lower section through the metering valve which is controlled by the diaphragm, then out to the input port of the primer and out the other primer port to return fuel to the tank. Go to: for an excellent 12 page article on theory and troubleshooting of Walbro carburetors. Hope this helps!

Stihl 028 chainsaw runs good for awile then bogs and dies

Lawn Trimmer will not run

Have you checked the fuel line inside the tank? Usually there is a little filter on the end of the line inside the gas tank that when it gets dirty with restrict the flow of gas. Go spend $3-4 and replace and that should fix it. If it doesn't then I am guessing you probably still have something on one of the jets on the carb.
Good Luck

I have a 2150 super clean 2.1cc. i will fire and start up. it runs for about 1 or 2 seconds and dies. i have changed gas and plug. cleaned air filter.

remove and clean out your carb and inspect the diaphram and if it is stiff or winkled bad replace it, this ethanol that they put in gas raises havoc with fuel lines and gums up carbs and makes diaphrams stiff, I would put a kit in it and also replace your primer bulb while you are at it

Primer bulb on Yardboss blower will not **** fuel from tank. Blower will run if primed manually.

remove your carb and clean it and replace diaphram's and needle , they tend to swell up from ethanol that is used in the gas now a days, and the diaphrams turn stiff and won't pump fuel. then put fresh gas in when you are done and also replace fuel lines and filter too., probably primer to because once it is hit with carb clean it just crumbles, good luck

2001 yamaha breeze wont stay running

i had the same issue. it's gonna be a blockage in one of the vent tubes to the carb. check the line to the left of the carb that runs next to the gas tank. if thats fine then check the gas cap line. then if thats all good then check the line that runs below the carb. these are all vent tubes and allow the carb. to refill with fuel

Zama carb runs good until air bubbles begin to fill gas line,, then dies

You may have a crack in one of the fuel lines. There shouldn't be any air bubbles in the line. Check the lines to see if there's gas leaking from them. If not, you may need to replace the diaphrams and gaskets on the carb.

Echo tiller doesn''t want to run

you may need a diaphram in the carb or the tiny screen (if it has one) is plugged. Also check hoses to and from tank make sure they are good and not soft and gooey. You could draine tank and put pure gas in and use primer bulb to circulate it then remove gas and add mixed gas. long shot but may work, has for me.

It acts like it is flooded, starts with choke off and throttle depressed. runs until carb runs out of gas then dies

Yes, Your carburetor sounds like it needs cleaned. Or you may possibly need to purchase a carb. kit for your trimmer if the cleaning doesn't do any good. When cleaning the carb. use a Den Tek Brush, (teeth cleaning brush), to clean the small ports. Also, check the small screen in carb. Can get clogged easily.
