Hi men2cu...
Try this method, being you have spark and gas getting to the carburetor...

Get a can of starting fluid, and spray a small amount of it into the carburetor and then try to crank it again...if it cranks and runs then problem fixed...if it cranks and shuts off right away, then you have some trash in your inlet valve in your carburetor.
You can try tapping the carburetor lightly with a hammer and sometimes that will dislodge the float needle if it doesn't dislodge the needle valve then the carburetor will have to be disassemble and cleaned.
Once this is complete your generator should run fine.

My 10 year old weedeater hedge trimmer ran fine last year when I put it away for the season. When I tried to start it this year it wouldn't even fire. I put fresh fuel mix in and a new spark plug and...


I would check for spark and check the fuel lines, especially if fuel is left in it. Also if fuel left in you will have to empty the lines and carburetor or pull it enough to clear. Another thing to consider is that if fuel was left in it that the carburetor may need a rebuild, replacing the diaphrams.

I hope this is helpful for you.

After sitting for 9 months, the bike will not start, Helping a friend with his 2000 TT600. it ran fine last season, parked it last november. Was parked outside, and spring came, and he has been out of town...


The old gas may have gumed up the carbs....I would put some carb cleaner with some gas stabilizor and wind her over with the spark plugs out a few times and retry.Hope this helps.

Runs fine until I engage the PTO and am on a slight incline.Starts to spit and sputter and cut off. Checked Plug Gap, Magneto Gap. Worked fine last summer. All I did this time was replace the blades....


check your fuel lines for clogging if it ran fine last year means you have a clogged fuel line somewhere or the carb itself is stopped up disassemble the carb and do a visual inspection also use B12 chemtool carb cleaner use both the spray and the fuel cleaner treatment i know for sure your problem is related to ethanol fuel hope this helps good luck and always run your equipment completely out of fuel for long term storage or between seasons

Craftsman 34cc 4 cycle weedwacker will not start


Start by removing and cleaning the spark plug. The check out the screen at the exhaust port and make sure that it is completely free of carbon build-up. I never run my equipment out of gas at the end of a season, I usually add some fuel stabilizer to the gas and run some into the carb before shutting down for the season. Hope this helps and good luck.

Wont start after 6 mos. I changed the spark plug, drained & added fresh gas, checked the fuel filter... Kicks over fine. Ran for 4 seconds, then it died. Always ran & started great before.


With a new plug and fresh gas it should start. Check to make sure there isn't a kill switch turned off or that the gas petcock from the tank to the carb is on.

How did you check the fuel filter? Disconnecting it from the fuel line that goes to the carb is the best way, making sure the gas is turned on under the tank. Bleed off a little gas into a can or something just to make sure the filter isn't plugged.

The last thing I'd do is take off the air filter and spray a little starting fluid in the carb. It may start and run several times if there is old gas in there somewhere. Remember the bowl on the carb is probably still full of old gas. After some fresh fuel reaches the plug it should start and continue to run.

(You might drain the bowl on the carb of ols gas before you go any further)

Good luck!

Wont start


Start with emptying the gas tank totally. Refill with fresh gas/oil mix. Todays gasoline ain't that great.
Also after putting in fresh gas and priming if it doesn't fire at all pull the spark plug and if it is dry, pour a about a tbsp. of mix gas in the plug hole. put the spark plug back in and see if it will fire.
