SOURCE: Mower will start then starts to putt then cuts off

You will need to disassemble the carburetor and spraywith carb.cleaner. Use a Den Tek Brush, (http://www.drugstore.com/products/prod.asp?pid=165357&catid=1152),to clean the small portals and/or the jet in carb. These portals canbecome blocked. Replace the diaphragm as well. Reassemble and start.

If you need further assistance, just let me know.

I have the same mower and problem. Found out the issue was the carburetor. Pull the Carb and do a quick cleaning. Order the replacement kit prior to working on. My bowl o-ring was shot and I couldn't get a seal after cleaning it out.

SOURCE: toro mower quick running after

Hi and welcome to FixYa. First off having worked in lawn mower shops personally you should take your mower back to the shop you had it repaired in. What you have is what we in the biz call a repeat disrepancy. Most likely there is a fuel supply problem if the jects have been cleaned. The problem can be:

1. Debris in the bottom of the fuel tank.
2. Clogged fuel filter
3. Float needle and seat is not opening fully or there is debris in the needle seat.
4. Clogged or pinched fuel supply line.

That is about it but I am telling you the repair shop owes you a free labor fix for this. You may have to purchase a needle and seat for around $5 - $6.00 and or the cost of a new fuel filter but, they certainly should eat the labor.

Thanks for choosing FixYa.

Lawn Mower putt putt when filter in place


Your air filter screw may be too long from over tightening air cleaner and crushing the cover. It warpes the carb allowing for gas to leak into carb. Grind or cut off screw alittle or put washer on and don't over tighten. thank you for using fixya.

2005 suzuki wont stay running, i had just bought it and it will start but putt around but cant reach high rpms. does the carburetor need to be cleaned?


Yes
Remove the carb from the bike.
Completely disassemble the carb
Soak all jets, needles, springs, screws and carb body in a carb solution overnight.
Do Not soak any o-rings or the float. Clean the float with a brush, and replace the o-rings if they are flat.
Rinse with water and then blow everything out with compressed air.
Make sure you can see through the jets and the small holes on the side of the jets.
Make sure you blow through every hole in the carb body.
Reassemble carb, mount on bike.
It will run like new again.

NOTE: When removing the air/fuel mixture screw, turn it in(clockwise) until it stops and STOP turning, Do Not try to tighten any further.
Count the number of turns it took to stop. Write it down so you dont forget overnight. Remove it for cleaning.
When you reassemble the carb, turn the air/fuel mixture screw in until it stops.
Now turn it out(counterclockwise) the number of turn you counted.
If your not sure turn it out 2 turns.

Cleaned the float bowl which was dirty, blew out the jet, replaced old gas - still runs for 5 seconds and then quits.


You need to take the carb off and clean it out real good.i would suggest soaking it in mineral spirits and blowing it out with air.take a bread tie and strip it.then you can take the tie and clean the passage way,s in carb.if that don,t work try rebuilding or replacing carb.I hope this helps.Dale

My gs 700 will not start i tore the carbs apart and cleaned the jets and still nothing i put carb cleaner starting fluid and still nothing


the gs700 has mikuni carbs, right? These carbs have a rubber fabric diaphram and o-rings, when you tore the carbs apart did you make sure to remove all rubber and plastic parts, all the jets have o-rings that would have been ruined, the plastic throttle/choke linkage should have been taken out. NEVER USE CARB CLEANER OR STARTING FLUID IN A MOTORCYCLE CARB. there are to many rubber parts. the rubber diaphram alone can run over $100.00 each. for the correct o-rings and gaskets I found ebay to be the best place to shop.Also, one of the characteristics of a suzuki in that era is they won't run right without the factory airbox installed. That cost me lots of time and money finding that out, lol.

Surging


Doesnt sound like governor issues
Sounds fuel related
You need to remove your carb. and tank assembly as one
Take the carb off the tank and replace the daiphram& gasket between the two
note how the old one came off.
Sometimes the common fuel we have now with 10%ethanol effects rubber parts and causes them to fail prematurely.
you may notice the old gasket is wrinkled and maybe not pliable like it should be.
while you have the carb apart give it a fairly good cleaning with a air hose
be sure not to overtighten the bolts that mount the carb,back to the tank.
Be sure your fuel you are using is fresh

hope this helps some for you

Champion Vantage 35 - mower will not keep running


More than likely the jet in the carb is somewhat clogged. Did this just happen after sitting for the winter? If so, start the mower and when it starts to die pump the primer to keep it running. Sometimes it will clean itself in a few minutes. If not, carb cleaner or take the carb bowl off and clean the jet.
Hope this helps

Murray lawnmower


you may just need to remove the nut that holds the float bowl, and inspect the nut itself, half way up the nut should be a little tiny hole in the side.
use a bread tie stripped of the plastic covering and unclog this little hole, then replace the nut , when that hole becomes plugged the main jet cannot get fuel for the venturi pipe, thus the mower will start and hit a couple times then die immediately, that may fix the problem
