If it only runs with the choke on it isn't getting enough fuel. You will probably have to disassemble the carb, and clean well. Engines and carbs vary, but the main fuel passage from either the tank or fuel bowl, just be clean. Sometimes just blowing out won't do. Might be worth buying a carb kit, and clean it throughly. Sears web site will have a great parts breakdown if you enter the model number. See link: www.searspartsdirect.com

Did you pull the spark plug and clean it, as well as the plug well and compression ring. Blow it out with canned air and dry before replacing the plug. Be certain the plug GAP is correct and it is free of carbon deposits. Rest the plug, tighten by hand and let her go. See if that fixes the problem.

Crafsman 25cc weedwacker won't stay running


You probably have a bad hose or a bad hose connection that is sucking mostly air instead of delivering full fuel to the carburetor!

Husqvarna 142e will not stay running. Going through the sequence of full/half choke it will start and run at high rpm when choked. Even after warmed up, it will die within a few seconds after dropping the...


Hi,
If it is only running high at full choke - then it is not getting enough fuel.
You've cleaned out the whole thing - so it's not air that's the problem. It's running - so it's not a spark problem - it's a fuel problem.

If you have a fuel filter - change it out or clean it properly. If the fuel line is clear, then you need to adjust the running setting of the carb - there are usually 2 setting knobs -one for idle - one for running / mix.
You need it running richer till you get it going - then trim it back to stop it smoking and get a good rev.

Lawnmower starts but won't continue to run


if you are getting no fuel to the plug you either have a stuck float, plugged fuel line or filter. does the gas reach the carb bowl? does the mower have a fuel pump? if so the diaphram might be bad.

Mower has to be chocked to run


Oftentimes, this problem is the result of mowers left outside in ambient air that is high humidity. This, in turn, allows algae to grow inside the carb fuel float bowl and/or inside the fuel tank if left out for extended periods (one month or longer). Also the same thing will cause air filters to clog rapidly with mold and mildew - slowly at first, then more rapidly as the mold continues to grow. Get out the carb cleaner in spray cans and go through every ported passagewway in the carb body then reassemble using CLEAN screws, gaskets and all interrior parts. Any residue mold or mildew will continue to grow - and it can grow in gasoline!! Imagine that!!

Weedeater XT 85T wont run


Check to see if your feul line is cracked or it is drawing air . Check your clamps that hold the lines on . One other thing you can check is to see if any bolts are loose that hold the carb on . Best of luck Ed.
