Question about Yard Machines Red Edger
You shouldn't need a new carburetor. You just need to clean it. First, drain the gas out of the machine. You can do this by removing the fuel line where it attatches to the carburetor. Then, remove the bolt that holds the float bowl on the bottom of the carburetor. There will be an external washer on it. so be careful. The brass bolt that holds the bowl on the carburetor is also the main jet of the carburetor. There are very small holes in the bottom of the bolt and in the sides of it where the smooth section is. Clean it very well as these holes are very small. Reinstall the bolt after wiping clean the float bowl and reassemble. Careful with the carburetor body gasket that goes in between the bowl and the upper part of the carburetor body. make sure it is in place correctly all the way around. Add some fuel cleaner to your gas and run the machine..The built up gum and varnish in dried up gasoline is usually the cause of this problem. If an inline fuel filter isn't used, these same symptoms can develop also as water and trash enter the carburetor.
