SOURCE: Almost new McCulloch 7800 won't start.

This is a typical problem with small engines that are not used often or only used seasonally

The problem exist when it is not prepped for storage properly, meaning that the fuel is not shut off and the engine allowed to burn off the remaining fuel that's left in the carburetors float bowl, causing the un-spent fuel to sour and later creating a condition called varnishing which clogs the carburetor venteries

All of these steps will require the use of skin and eye protection!!!

The solution is to replace the old fuel in the tank with fresh, its not a bad idea to replace the fuel filter at this time, then with the petcock in the off position remove the carburetor float bowl, inspect the gasket or seal for imperfections (replace as needed) and clean it along with the float assy. and piston check valve with a spray type carburetor & choke cleaner and gently wiping with a clean lint free cloth so as to remove all yellowish colored varnish and any debris, before reassembly place a glass or metal catch pan or bowl under the carburetor and turn the petcock to the on position to allow fresh fuel to flush out the fuel line and now LIGHTLY & GENTLY (without resistence) lift the float up, the fuel should stop flowing. If it does not stop, repeat cleaning procedure. If it does turn the petcock to off and reassemble. After reassembly turn the petcock to on, the engine should run.

Another preventive step is the use of a product called STA-BIL fuel stabilizer

If you stored it with fuel in it, the piston and cylinder may be stuck together. The old fuel turns to a gummy varnish. spray some WD-40 in to the cylinder through the spark plug hole and rock the flywheel back and forth to break it loose. Then flush the fuel system and carburetor. If that isn't the problem, remove the muffler and inspect the piston, rings, and cylinder for vertical scoring, if scoring is present a top end rebuild may be necessary.

SOURCE: Generator hard to start. Kick back

This sounds like the timing is off. Remove the spark plug and pull the cord to see if there is less tension. If there is less tension then you know that the pull cord is fine. Do a compression check on the cylinder, it should be around 100psi. Remove the valve cover and check to see if valves are moving when your pulling the cord. The valves could have came off the rockers.

SOURCE: Ryobi 40cc chain saw, pull cord won't turn rotar assembly

I had the same problem with my 18 inch Ryobi saw. The problem is the tabs that engage the recoil to the flywheel are of poor quality steel and they bend out of position. The end result is when you pull tyhe rope it just jumps and wont start. Eaven the new parts do the same thing. Simple soultion is remove the recoil starter four screws require a torx bit or a flat screwdriver. after your remove the recoil starter using a pair of pliers bend the two tabs upwards untill they are not quite straight up (about a 80 degree angle be carefull not ot brake the tab off) once you have done this remove the center nut that holds the flywheel on. the silver pins that hold the tabs in position need to be punched out but remember how they go back by doing only one at a time and remember how the spring is installed. Turn the flywheel over and using a punch and hammer remove the pins. Put the tabs in a vise to hold them sucerly clean the steel as best you can on the inside of the bend. Fill the bend with brazing rod or coat hanger if you haven't got any brazing rod avilable. You don't have to com;leatly fill the bend but put enough in there to suport the tabas so they can't bend agin. Reassemble the saw and you're done. Mine works great now, better than new. This problem isn't limited to recon saws only, mine is a new saw and I still had the problem. Good luck herbdogs

My backpack blower won;t start. I replaced the spark plug and it still won't start. Can you make a suggestion?

Check and make sure the rubber hoses coming out of the fuel tank are not broken and look inside also if not that carb is cloggged up maybe pull the fuel hose off and spray some gumout up into it to open up the jet, spray some gumout in the carb and see if you get a sputter out of it then you know your not getting any fuel.. carb needs cleaning

Pull cord not catching

If you remove the cover, there is a metal arm that pops out when you pull. The arm is probably rust or just stuck. Spray it with lube and work it around so it loosens up.
