If you store this machine outdoors than you might have a little water in the system, otherwise give the carb a good cleaning.

Why does yardworks 173cc bs engine will start, run, for 2-3 seconds then stop

Bad gas. Drain gas and refill with fresh gas with Stabil. Old oil. Drain oil fill with fresh 30w oil, 16-18oz. Clean air filter and spark plug.. Relpace air filter if dirty. Saving $$$ on this simple tune up is not intelligent.

Yardman wood chipper stalls every 10 minutes

What brand engine do you have? B&S? I would start with the fuel system first. Make sure fuel filter is not clogging, check and make sure that the vent cap on the gas tank is not clogged. If the cap is clogged, it creates vacuum in the gas tank which will eventually prevent proper fuel flow going to the carburetor. If your engine has a fuel cut off solenoid (Located Under Carburetor) check the wire connection going to it and make sure that all connections are good in that circuit. You should see battery voltage going to the solenoid when the ignition is turned into the run position. The electric solenoid that opens and closes the plunger that allows fuel to flow into the carburetor could be failing when it gets hot. These fuel cut off solenoids don't commonly electrically fail but the plunger can start to stick causing lack of fuel flow or no fuel flow. They are normally in the closed position when ignition is turned off. Hopefully this information will help you out given the fact that I'm guesstimating on the engine that you may have. Take Care.

Need owners manual for 2001 yard machine chipper schredder model #24A464B131

I have a operator's manual for 24a 463b129 5.5 hp. I also have an operator's manual for the engine (Tecumseh). I purchased the chipper new from Home Depot back in 2002. I think you will be disappointed at the lack of information. If still interested, e-mail me your e-mail address, and I can send you a PDF copy of these manuals. (

MTD yardman chipper wont start get spark need manual

I am successful too at using the starting fluid in the carb or directly into the clinder. That is how I start my MTD 5.5hp chipper. My problem is I have to hold down the primer bulb to keep it running. If not, the engine will stall.
