Remove the gas can carefully the pulsa primer carburetor sits on top. Once you remove the tank open the cap and pour out the gas. THen carefully unscrew the five screws holding the carb on. Carefully lift the carb up leaving the gasket in place and clean the small 4 chambered bowl with starter fliud. Replace all parts put gas in it, push the primer until you see gas squirt into carb then pull the handle.

Mtd yard machine gas push edger wont stay running


It probably has dirt/obstruction in fuel system.locate carb.if it has a bowl on the bottom,remove and clean.also,if it is 2cycle,there is a filter in the fuel tank.if it is more than a few years old,replace it.check fuel lines.even a piece of debris you can't see will affect the operation.clean air filter after every 2nd use.when storing,do not empty fuel,use STA- BIL.replace spark plug.one or all of these steps should work.i am not doing this for $,i do it to help.i hope i have been helpful.bart.new jersey

HI there, I got a lawn mower mtd yard machine briggs ans stratton 4,5 hp, it start pretty well but won't stay running, I change the spark plug, oil, gas brand new, clean the carburator, clean the air...


There could well be a build up of sediment and debris in the main jet to the carburetor. It is easy to get to and clean. It is the brass bolt that holds the lower float bowl onto the main body of the carburetor. To clean it, drain your gas. Remove the bolt and external washer UNDER the carburetor bowl. Clean out the bowl of any sediment and/or water. To clean the brass bolt, use no metal objects. Carb/Choke aerosol spray cleaner will do the job. Pay close attention to the hole in the bottom of the bolt and the very small holes about 2/3 of the way up the bolt. Clean till shiny with holes cleared and reinstall. Your fuel flow problem and shut off condition may be solved.

My Craftsman 26hp tractor is running extremely ruff, I have replaced the plugs Confirmed that the plugs are working. It runs ruff at all speeds. The tractor was runing just fine a few weeks ago


You've changed the plugs have you checked the oil and air filter if not you need to because if not it might need changed and it may be low the rider my father gave me ran ruff and would die in 5th gear and I changed the oil and air filter now it stays going in all gears.So my suggestion to you is to to change the oil and air filter I am not a pro but I have had to keep my mowers going no help from anyone so I had to learn so if you don't agree with me check with a repairman.

THIS GAS EDGER HAS A PRIMER BULB. I PUSH IT THE RECOMMENDED TIMES. THE ENGINE STARTS AND RUNS FOR 5 SECONDS AND KILLS. I HAVE PULLED THE GAS TANK AND EMPTIED IT. REINSTALLED AND PUT IN FRESH GAS. I KNOW IT...


The jet in the carburetor is clogged if it is a 4 cycle unit or the diaphragms are stiff if in a 2 cycle unit. It is burning the primed fuel but can not draw any more fuel to burn to stay running.

Have to choke to keep running


this is not hard to do here is what you need , 1 can of carb cleaner anykind will do , a 10 mm rench to remove the bowl 7/16 socket . now remove the carb take a good look where the spring is before you take the carb off it muct go back in the same hole , now that you have it off take the bowl off remove the float place to the side here is the fun part look in the carb you will see some small hole spray them this will clean all of the old gas out if you can let it set for about 10 min then do it again blow out with air if you have one nothing else to do but reinstall this works most of the time ...Good Luck..
