Question about Briggs & Stratton Garden
Your carbs main jet is most likely blocked. When the throttle goes off the idle jet to the main jet there isnt enough fuel flow and the engine stalls.
You need to removed the main jet and run a small piece of wire through the main jet to clear it. This is a good time to look at the inside of the float bowl to see if you have excessive water, rust or dirt accumulating that is a sign you should clean and drain the fuel tank and lines as well. The main jet is actually the bolt that holds the fuel bowl on the bottom of the carb! You need to look very close at the jet near the top of the threads to see the little whole there and clean it. A wire brush to clean off the threads and fine piece of wire strand to clean the hole will do the trick!
If you dont have a bowl type carb you will need to remove the carb from the fuel tank and locate and clean the inlet screen and main jet and then remove the fuel tank and clean it out too.
Good luck and be careful.
