Question about Briggs & Stratton Garden

1 Answer

I have a Quantum XTE 60 Briggs & Stratton on my lawn mower. It is running too rich as the spark plug is getting very carbonised and the engine is going very slow. How do I adjust the fuel input?

Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly.
There are 7 different versions of this engine. I need to know which one you have by model number. Model number examples are listed below:

12V802-1776-B1

12V802-1733-A1

12V802-0109-01

Without that information it is difficult to help you. What I will say is usually a dirty air cleaner makes an engine runs rich. (Too much gas)

However.. speaking in generic terms on must Briggs and Stratton engines there is a single fuel air mixture jet screw on the side of the carburetor body. To reduce the amount of fuel being used you turn the screw clockwise. (screw in) You should not have to turn the screw more than 1/8 turn to get the correct fuel mixture. If you have to turn it more than 1/8 turn first suspect the air filter and last would be a problem with the float level or float needle. I can provide manuals for float needle and float level repairs if you respond with an engine model number.

Thanks for choosing FixYa,
Kelly

Briggs & Stratton Part Number 799876 replaces Champion plug RJ2YLE. For use in Quantum Series 625, 675, and 725 engines built after Date Code 110701xx. The gap for this spark plug should be set to .020". This spark plug should not be used with Quantum Series 625, 675, and 725 engines built before Date Code 110701xx, or any other L-head engine family.

Spark plugs need cleaning after one lawn cutting


if it was an ignition problem then it should run poorly. The fouling of a plug is caused by a rich running unit which leads me to a carburetor issue feeding the cylinder more fuel then it can completely burn off. Without having the unit in front of me however, it is hard to say for sure.
