Jacobsen 626 is hard starting. Cleaned fuel system, bought new plug. After installing new plug, just would not start. Then I tried a surface gap plug from an outboard motor and it started right up. But, it barks alot and wants to quit. Any suggestions?

It sounds like the float is sticking in the carb. Since the carb is higher than the fuel tank it pulls the fuel in by vaccum of the engine. when running at high rpms, it can burn the fuel thats flowing into the carb, when you idle down, the bowl of the carb is filling up with fuel faster than the engine can burn it and causing it to flood. Then when it shuts off at idle it does not want to start back up because it is flooded. To make a long stary short, pull the carb and give it a good cleaning and your problems should be solved.

I have found that 99 percent of the time when this happens it is carb related. It is very possible that you picked a a small piece of grit or trash in the high speed jet of one, or both, of your carbs. I would be willing to bet that pulling the carbs and cleaning them will resolve your problem. I am almost positive that will fix your problem, mainly because it sounds like you've already tried everything else. I had this same problem last season, and what had happened was I left the vent open on my fuel tank, we got a shower, and I pulled just a small bit of water into the carb and that was it, she would not do anything over idle until I pulled the carbs and cleaned them. i even put the water muffs on it and let it run in the yard for about an hour thinking that it would burn the water out, but i was wrong. Anyway, clean the carbs and i think you'll be in good shape, Good Luck.

Try taking the engine shroud off and cleaning the magnets on the fly wheel. Also clean the two little prongs that are really close to the fly wheel. Use some emery cloth or fine sandpaper. They might be a little rusty and your not getting good contact.

Let me know if this helps.

Hi the key is moulded as part of the flywheel on most machines these days which doesent take much to sheer off , By the sounds of it this may well be your problem.

go to an auto parts store and get a can of gasoline additive called seafoam. Read the label so you know how much to add to your 6 gallon tank. This stuff works wonders on outboard motors.

Want start. Getting fuel. No fire at spark plug


These engines have a low oil sensor and if the oil is low, the engine will not have fire. So check the oil level first and make sure it is to the full mark.

Check the spark plug that it still has proper gap .028-.031 in and the proper spark plug BPR6ES (NGK) or W20EPR-U (ND). While you have the spark plug out let's see that it is firing, reattach the plug wire to the spark plug and make sure the spark plug is in contact of a bare metal surface for a ground, the crank the engine over watching for spark in the gap of the spark plug. It would be best to check this in a low light area. Keep in mind that checking for spark this way and there is spark but when the spark plug is installed and there is compression the spark may not jump the gap as it should. If no spark with the plug out check the spark plug wire for cuts or tears and it none seen get a new spark plug. If there is spark with the spark plug out reinstall the spark plug. If the engine hasn't been started for some time drain the gas out of the fuel tank and carburetor. There could be water in the fuel also but to check if there is fire get a can of starting fluid. Drain the carburetor anyway at this point because if there is water in the fuel the next step may not fire the engine because of the water. Take the air filter out and give the opening of the carburetor a short spray of starting fluid. Try to start the engine, if it doesn't start or fire with the starting fluid there is something wrong in the ignition system. The Digital CDI Ignition Coil could be bad but before buying a new one you need to check the shear key of the flywheel to the crankshaft to make sure it is in good shape. You will need to remove the flywheel for this. If the key is in very good shape, then it is the coil.

If the engine fires on the starting fluid then you have water in the fuel or the fuel is not getting into the engine as it should from the carburetor. The carburetor needs to be cleaned.

My craftsman weedwacker 27cc curved shaft wont start and cant figure it out


I need to ask. Did you leave fuel mix in it for a long time? If so then the carburetor will need to be cleaned with a special cleaner. and not the spray can stuff.

CS-670 . Cleaned fuel tank , lines , carb. New


Check for blue, snappy spark at the plug (gapped at 0.020"). If weak or nothing, remove the flywheel cover to expose the ignition module. Check the module gap with a thin business card--turn the flywheel magnets under the module poles, insert the card into the gap, loosen the module screws, and allow the module to contact the magnets, then tighten the screws. Turn the flywheel somewhat to remove the card. Recheck for spark--if ok, try for engine start. If still no spark, remove the ignition switch wire from the module and retry for spark. If still nothing, replace the module. Install per the above instructions. Hope this helps!

1995 AUDI 90 CS - Hard to start... spark & fuel OK


Have you tried replacing the starter? I know starters can go bad if the car is not started or run for a long time.

I am getting the same car, with the same issue.. it sat for 2 yrs and won't start.

My mechanic told me it is probably a starter.

Lawn mower does not start up


Lots of thing can stop a victa working!!!!!!!!!. Ok your plug is wet. Turn the fuel off. R&R tank renew fuel(no more than a month old it goes stale)Check for spark, be very careful it could catch a light.
Get the new plug open the gap to about 5mm.earth the hex of the plug to the head, away from the plug hole ,the fuel will come out.
If it jumps gap when pulled it has enough spark to fire under load.If lots of fuel comes out its flooded.if so leave plug out remove a/f ,leave tap off, put throttle to full and pull till most fuel is gone.Refit plug and try. let me know how that goes. do this in well vented area. Fumes can build up in shed.
