SOURCE: ard Broom leaf blower, pull rope problem

Hi,

Like most mechanical problems, your concern would require the disassembly for visual inspection. Offhand, the problem could be a loose nut or lock. If you have not performed a similar repair before, then perhaps it is best for you to make use of a repair manual or at least an exploded diagram to give you an idea how the parts are interconnected. If you would be uncomfortable performing a DIY (do-it-yourself), then perhaps your best bet would be to seek the services of a qualified professional.

A simplified repair sheet may be of additional help.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

SOURCE: toro personal pace mower 5 yrs old only runs 10-15 seconds.

Was gasoline left in the tank during off season? Sometimes gas will break down and clog the jets in the carb. The priming bypasses the carb so when you put fuel in by pumping the bulb it runs, but dies becasue no additional fuel is coming through the carb after the primed fuel is burned off. Sounds like you need to clean the jets in the carb and in the future, use Stabil in gasoline to keep it from breaking down.

Be sure the fuel is fresh....meaning, fresh from the gas station. IF that doesn't fix it, replace the carb.

I have a bolen snow blower with a 208cc engine that runs for 5 minutes then quits seems to lose compresion


you may want to try and see if your cylinder walls are scratched when it loses compression try using som oil in the cylinder and see if the compression comes back up. if so then you may have a scratch cylinder. if compression does not come up then look at the valves to see if they are seating right. if not then you may have to do a valve job.

Yard Machines rototiller front tine- having problems starting


Sounds like you are either losing your "prime" or your carb needs either, cleaning, rebuilding with a kit. Probably a cleaning will do it. Watch U Tube there are wonderful people who film the whole process from tear down, to replacement. Com'on! Get into it its easy and it don't take long. Then you'll always know how to do it!

Starting rope won't rewind


There are two or three screws that hold the retract assembly on to the engine cover. Take these off, and pull the retract off. First, try to turn the pulley on the inside in the direction that the rope would turn it if you you were pulling it out. Will it rewind? If not, there is a screw on the top of this assembly, that's covered up with a sticker. you'll need to remove this screw, and pull the pulley out. There will be a spring on the inside of this. check the spring to see if it's broken. If not, and it's just come loose, put it back into the slot that holds it, and wind it up enough to get it back together. turn the spring in the direction that the rope would pull it out, until it won't go any more. Hold it, and reinsert the rope, tie a couple of good knots in the end, trim the excess, and let it retract the rope into the assembly. Put the assembly back on your engine, and you're good to go.

Is there a choke setting and throttle setting for best results in getting the MTD yarde amchine started?


Most of the small outdoor power equipment that I have used takes the following to start:

1. Prime 6-8 times, or whatever the manual calls for.

2. Choke the carb to full choke.

3. Pull starter rope. It may sputter and die.

4. After it sputters and dies, put the choke on 1/2. Pull a time or 2 more and should start. Run like that 10 seconds or so, then take choke all the way off.

I have a Bolens 6.0 OHV tiller M# 21A-332C163 and S# 1C283K40098. It will start on first pull but only run 2 or 3 mintues then quites. You then have to choke it to restart it then again it will only run...


Has it sat with gas in it ? if so carburetor needs cleaned,The other thing could be water in gas look in tank for something that looks like a bubble floating in bottom of tank if you see one its water you remove tank clean out then if carburetor has bowl you must remove carburetor bowl clean out water.
