Won't stay running after prime runs out


starving for fuel. first check for bad/old gas, then restrictions in the fuel delivery including fuel line, filter, or buildup of debris in tank or any sharp bends or 90deg. fittings. then pull the float bowl and make sure the float is regulating fuel fuel into the bowl, but most likely your main jet is plugged. use a fine piece of wire like guitar string to runthru the jet located at the lowest part of the carb that hangs down into the float bowl. the jet will be on the side or bottom of this lower piece. put bowl back on, get gas to the carb and recheck starting problem. good luck.

I have a 158cc lawnmower Model PO500n22S (or 5). It starts but then stops as if shut off or out of gas. I re-prime and the process repeats. The mower Is brand new and only used twice.HELP!!!


It is acting like the main jet is blocked in the carburetor. This may have happened by debris from in the gas can entering the tank during fill up. The only way to find out though is to take the carburetor apart and inspect it.

I hope this helps you get it running.

Lawnmower has been in storage for 6 months. Has new good gas, and gas is flowing to carb. However, engine will not start without priming carb with gas, then runs until primed gas is exhausted. ...


this is from a post i just did for anothe engine but i think it applies to you also.

get a product called START. this stuff is amazing it has solved all my engine problems including a couple like yours. any wal mart should have it. add to your gas and the longer it runs the better it runs. i am telling you it is worth the 6 bucks. i had a 4wheeler that never ran right, always had to half choke it. even though i cleaned the carb twice. added this stuff and by the time that tank was gone it was running like new. if that doesnt take care of your problem then it needs to go to the shop Now your situation i know is dirt or varnish in the carb i have had this problem also. and start worked for me on that also. mix it in the gas and keep it running even if you have to keep priming it

Bought a Poulan Wild Thing 18" gas chainsaw (P4018WT) secondhand from someone who only bought it to cut down 3 trees. It will not start. I know that it works, as the guy started it up and showed me how...


Don't prime it 6 times.

Prime it once and try starting. Keep trying with one prime.

If that doesn't work, let it sit for a bit. And then prime it two times and try starting again.

If that doesn't work, try priming 3 times.

Then try half-choke with one pull only, and then move choke to run for the second pull.

The saw might have an on-off button

Will not stay running


You have a fuel delivery problem. Main reasons for this is a dirty or plugged up carburator. If you know what you are doing, clean the carburator. If you let gas set in it for more than a month or so without starting it up, the good ole ethonal in the fuel has gummed up inside the carb. Once you get the carb clean (jets, ports, etc) and it still doesn't run replace the fuel pump. Cheap as heck and easy to install. Both items can be done in less than an hour and cost you about 25 bucks.

Poulan Pro lawnmower (Briggs and Stratton 128 cc engine) will start when primed but will not stay running. New Lawnmovewr, < 3 months since purchased at Walmart


IF IT IS A BRIGG & STRATTON ENGINE YOU CAN GO ONLINE TO BRIGGS & STRATTON.COM AND ASK THEIR TECH SECTION ABOUT THE PROBLEM. FOR 3 MONTHS OLD SOUNDS LIKE DIRT OR WATER MAY HAVE GOTTEN INTO THE TANK. WHEN YOU PRIME THE MOWER YOU ARE FORCING GAS INTO THE CARB AND ENGINE AFTER THAT THE ENGINE SHOULD PULL THE GAS IN THE ENGINE, I WOULD SAY THE CARB MITE NEED REBUILDING BUT NOT AT 3 MONTHS
