Yes, there is always a pickup filter in handheld equipment. Usually if the filter has come loose, then the fuel lines have broken and must be replaced. Replace all the fuel lines, blow out the pickup filter from the inside, and you may have to clean out the inlet screen in the carburetor if it was run while the filter was off.

I have a 2009 Yard man 625 mower. I want to know how much gas the tank holds. Bought this used and they didnt tell me mix the gas.

firstly from the photo it looks like it is a four stroke motor in which case you do not mix the fuel with oil
it is a two stroke engine and needs oil mixed in the fuel , it is not done in the fuel tank but in a container ( 5 ltr-1 gallon) before hand
mixing in the tank will create problems from not enough oil to excessive oil as the motor is running
only use 2 stroke oil --not engine oil
of in doubt take it to a mower shop and get advice on what should be done before you start it.

Ai put oil/gas mixture in tank...drained tank put correct gas and cleaned air filter..will only start after prime but only for a second

You've probably plugged the carburetor up with oil. It'll need a good cleaning with carb cleaner. If you don't know how, then I'd recommend a professional to do the job. Best of luck to you.

I have a new[purchased last summer] Yard Man Mdl.: YM320BV 2-stroke, 31cc, blower/vac that will not start. Fuel is fresh, has new spark plug (what should the gap be?) original plug was...

If the plug is black then either there is too much two - stroke oil in the mix or the gas / air mix is too rich due to e.g. dirty air filter. Have a look at these tips for starting weedeaters, they apply also to blowers:

I have a yard man 22" cut self propelled mower model 12A-263E701. It starts, but not very powerfully and then idles really low and then dies? What would cause this?

I would locate and clean or replace air filter and check air vent in gas cap. If it gets plugged up it will cause a vacumn to be drawn in gas tank and starve engine of fuel. Thank you.

Won't start. Mower was in storage and unused for 2 yrs. Replaced spark plug. Still won't start.

IF you are turning it over and getting spark then your not getting fuel
2 year old gas can turn to sludge plugging the filter in the gas tank clean the tank out - blow the fuel line from the carb. back to the tank- use fresh gas she should run

My Yard Man push gas-powered lawn mower dies out

Check the fuel lines for cracks/breaks. If they are o.k., then:

You willneed to disassemble the carburetor and spray with carb.cleaner. Makesure the small screen is free of debris.

Use a Den Tek Brush, (,to clean the small portals in carb. These portals can become blocked. Reassemble and start.

If the carb. parts are more than 4 years old, you may have to replace them.

If you need further assistance, just let me know.
