Sounds like you will need to clean your carburetor.
Be sure to use compressed air to blow out all the fuel and air passages.
Sometimes you can get by with priming the carburetor a few times, and letting it run a few times like that and it will flush the gunk out of the jets,but most of the time you will need to rebuild the carburetor. When you rebuild your carburetor keep in mind that the float has to be level when you turn the carburetor upside down with the bottom of the carburetor still removed.
If the mower/weedeater is over a couple years old, then I also recommend that you buy and install a new carburetor repair kit,because the diaphragm will get hard and that will cause it to be hard to crank.
When you clean your carburetor and remove the jet screws, You will first seat the jet screws and count the number of turns it takes to seat the jets from their original position.
That way when you go to put the jets back in, you know how many turns they were in/out.

Oil plug


There is a drain plug in the bottom of the engine. It has a square hole in it that a 3/8 socket extension will fit in. It may be hidden by the belt cover if you can't see it. Dwain
