Sounds like flooding, carby service maybe required I'm guessing that it has been sitting for some time ,fuel has a tendency to go like jelly then hard like super glue and it blocks all jets
all machines that are small and that don't get used often should have a fuel turn off tap so you can run it dry (carby empty of fuel) meaning, whilst running, turn tap off, engine dies,carby empty no problems!!! it seems to be a common prob with small engines and all service centers are praying on this happening ,hope it helps if you are able put a fuel tap on approx cost $4 or get someone to do it ?

Just replaced carb new spark plug and new gas line. Will start and run for 2 minutes . When you press the throttle it dies and won't start again. Same problem I had before replacing carb.


Rick if you are sure it is fuel related issue, does sound like it may be running out of fuel. Check the fuel filter in the gas tank and replace, also check the fuel tank cap as the vent in it may be plugged,which will cause this issue.
A similar issue to this, is when the muffler screen gets plugged with carbon on some models. Check the attached links,instruction and guides, Good luck

Not cutting


If the mower starts and runs, then shut it off.
Find the spark plug.
Now, tip the machine up on its side WITH THE SPARK PLUG UP.
(If you do not, and if you tip it the wrong way, you can fill the combustion chamber with oil and ruin the machine when you try to start it again.)
Once it is tipped, look under the machine, and feel the blade to see if it is tight or loose on the motor shaft, and also if it needs to be sharpened.
If loose, tighten it.
If dull, sharpen it.
God bless your efforts.

Why don't I get a spark after replacing the coil on my Redmax grass cutter model TR2301S that is less than 3 years old.?


The gap between the coil and the magnets on the flywheel is critical. It is very close and needs a feeler gauge to be set. OR the magnets in the flywheel are bad.

Tanaka tht 2100-very difficult to start. Pull cord is is either too loose when pulled or it is jumpy, meeting with a bit of resistance?


i think it sounds like the motor is going i had a chainsaw and it did the same thing after a while the motor went and the chainsaw was no good anymore so you mite want to take it to a dealer that deals with your grass trimmer

Toro GTS 6.5 HP doesn't run well in grass. Any ideas?


Has the fuel filter been replaced lately? Also you can look to see if the new spark plugs are getting fouled out still. Sometimes just replacing the spark plugs wont fix the problem.

Kia ora, i have a makita 2 stroke grass cutter, that just wont start, checked, spark plug, fuel, took it apart and cleaned it..still wont start. Please help, it does not have model number only product...


Engines need 4 things: Spark, compression, fuel, exhaust

1) Does spark plug have spark?
Take out plug, put plug wire back on plug, hold plug threads against metal part of engine, pull cord, do you see spark between plug and engine?

2) While spark plug is out, put finger over hole and pull cord. Do you feel suction that shows compression?

3) What about the exhaust port? Is the screen blocked with carbon deposits and dirt? Soak it in WD-40.

4) Do you have 2-cycle oil in gasoline? Do you have fresh gas? Did you leave gasoline in tank for several months? Is the carburetor clogged with gum?

5) What about the air filter? Does it fire up without air filter? Will it fire if you spray WD-40 into carburetor? Can you keep it going while spraying WD-40 into carburetor?
If it fires with WD-40 but won't keep going on it's own, then the gas is not getting to carburetor or carburetor is clogged with gum.

Stihl 011 av wont start


Flooded? Try a new plug, or get that one cleaned up. If it is sparking and wet, it should fire, even if it doesn't run, it should spark. Did you put the jets or the needle valves back to where they were? I think they start out at 1 1/4 turns out , then adjust the low and high. If it is fouling out with too much gas, the low speed jet is open too far.

Stihl strimmer engine runs but wont cut grass the head wont turn what cuts grass


First take the head off and look for grass, weeds and string wound up in there. A lot of times that's the problem.

Next, with the head off and the switch in the off position, pull it over a few times and see if the shaft spins. If not, could be a broken shaft or a bad clutch.

Muculloch brush cutter wont start. No spark from plug.


If you have correctly diagnosed the problem as no spark, you will need to replace the ignition module. Unfortunately McCulloch dealers and McCulloch parts are very hard to find these days. If yoou do not have a dealer in yoour are who has the part you need, contact southern supply company at 205-833-2525 or email them at southern.supply@mindspring.com and I feel sure Jason or someone there can help you.
