If the carb mounts directly on top of the tank chances are the diaphram gasket between the carb ant tank has swelled and needs replaced

better late than never, I have the same mower

there is no throttle control on these mowers, if you look under the air filter the throttle is balanced by a spring pulling in one direction and a lever controlled by engine speed. if the spring breaks or falls off the lever will wiggle back and forth, more gas if the engine slows, less if it speeds up. you end up going fast/slow/fast/slow etc.

The tension spring slows the switching down and smooths out the engine speed.

Snow blower starts than it dies out I changed the spark plug new gas don't know whats the problem


I suspect the carburetor needs cleaning. Gas nowadays is terrible on equipment that sits for long periods of time (like a snow blower) without being used. The gas nowadays goes stale very quickly and gums up the carburetor. To prevent these issues use a gas stabilizer. I have stabilizer in all my jerry cans of gas. That way everything I fill up is ready to be stored at any time.
I'll give you an example of how bad the gas is.... My neighbour bought a new lawn mower. Selling feature of the mower was "guaranteed to start first or second pull". The next year it wasn't starting properly so he took it back. He was told he didn't store the mower properly over the winter (He didn't use a gas stabilizer) so no warranty. Took the carb apart and cleaned it ran like a champ....

I have a Ryobi 6.5 push mower brand new. It worked fine for bout an 45min then ran out of gas. I put more gas in it and it has not turned on since. I've tried everything...do you have any suggestions


If your mower is that new, then take it back where you bought it from and have if fixed or ask them what you may be doing wrong to cause the issue. It's under warranty. Hope this helps. Good luck.

Just bought a new Jenn-Air grill and cant get the temp past 250. Any ideas what i am doing wrong?


First, check that all the gas lines and flame bars are clear of any 'things' or bugs. I had a similar problem with a Webber grill and found out my problem was with the gas bottle. The new Overflow Protection Valve required on LP bottles can closed off or severly slow the flow of gas when the bottle is full and the valve is opened quickly. It will let enough gas flow to light the grill but won't let the fire get high enough to heat the grill up. Turn all the valves off on the grill and gas bottle. Open the gas bottle valve slowly then turn on the grill burner and try lighting it. If the flame is still very low try again or you have to let it burn at the low level until the OPV float drops down and the valve doesn't impede the gas flow. The best way to avoid this in the future is to not fill the gas bottle to the top when you have it refilled. Just ask the LP attendent to not fill it all the way.

New lawn boy mower pull cord will not pull. Worked first 2x


Did you check the oil before you ran it. They usually come dry and you have to but oil in before running. Sounds like motor might be blown.

1991 Cadillac Brougham not getting gas


The fuel pump is located on the frame undrneath the passenger side rear door.If you have the throtle body injection used on the 305 engine the electric fuel pump puts out about 8 psi.
Sounds like you have a clogged fuel pump. Not that bad to change if you have the special tool needed to remove the fuel lines to the pump. Ask your local Auto parts store for help.
