Sounds like you will need to clean the carburetor or replace your carburetor internal rubber parts like the diaphgram and O rings.
Be sure to use compressed air to blow out all the fuel and air passages.
Be careful when blowing out the passages, because there are sometimes small rubber type seats in the bottom of some of the passages.
Sometimes you can get by with priming the carburetor or using starting fluid 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.
Keep in mind that the float for the carburetor must be level when you go to reassemble the carburetor or follow the instrucitons you get with the carburetor kit.
If the mower/weedeater is over a year 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 need to seat the jet screws.
But before you seat the jet screws count the number of turns it takes to seat the jet screws from their original position.
Be sure to mark the turns down on a piece of paper.
That way when you put the jets back in, you know to seat them first and then turn them back out to their orginal position before you started.

Toro Power Clear 418 ZE Snow Blower won't stay started


The main jet of your carb is clogged and you need to open carb and clear the obstruction - spray carb cleaner on the bolt that holds the gas container to bottom of carb - also spray all the innards along with any tube that protrudes into the gas can.

Then using air compressor blow the sucker out and reassemble. That should do it.

Crafsman 2400 watt generator star ok but only run for 45 sec.& it won't star again the motor is a briggs & stratton 5.0hp


I have a Craftsman Snow Blower with a Briggs & Stratton Engine. I had the same problem. I searched online and read a little bit about this run and stop problem. One solution was to put something over a piece of metal that separates the hot engine part from the other part of the other side of the engine. I used a piece of heat resistant cloth from Lowes in the plumping area where the torches are. It fit and worked. Engine keeps running. I ran it for over an hour last spring prior to storing it.

Won't stay running after prime runs out


starving for fuel. first check for bad/old gas, then restrictions in the fuel delivery including fuel line, filter, or buildup of debris in tank or any sharp bends or 90deg. fittings. then pull the float bowl and make sure the float is regulating fuel fuel into the bowl, but most likely your main jet is plugged. use a fine piece of wire like guitar string to runthru the jet located at the lowest part of the carb that hangs down into the float bowl. the jet will be on the side or bottom of this lower piece. put bowl back on, get gas to the carb and recheck starting problem. good luck.

Crafsman 25cc weedwacker won't stay running


You probably have a bad hose or a bad hose connection that is sucking mostly air instead of delivering full fuel to the carburetor!

I have a craftsman eager-1 4.5 hp mowerthat won't stay running. If I hold the primer bulb in, it runs. I've adjusted the screw all the in and it still won't keep running. Any ideas?


Do you hold the primer in or pump it? Pumping the primer forces the fuel into the intake bypassing the diaphragm's intended function. Assuming you pump the primer to keep it running your carburetor is dirty and should be cleaned. Ensure that your fuel is fresh and that your fuel can and fuel tank has no water in it. Ethanol in fuel will evaporate and cause condensation thus creating unwanted water.

Have old Eager ****** 280 Gas Trimmer, Replaced Gas line, cleaned filter, tubing and Primmer Pump return line, still won't Prime, and start engine. Pust some gas in spark plug, engine run for a few...


If the bulb is good and it still won't prime, then you have either one more tube (there are usually 3) to replace, OR, the gas pickup in the tank has a plugged filter or a plugged line. I'd check it first.

Crafsman Eager 1 6.75 HP lawnmower wont start


I have an Eager 1, as well and when I try to pull the cord it does not turn at all. It's stuck. I hit a tree root and since then I have had problems with it. I have 2 mowers so it was not used last year at all. Gas was drained and it was stored in a shed. Anyway, I know nothng about mowers other than spark plugs, gas, oil, sharp blades and filters. Is the motor seized? Thanks
