SOURCE: Ariens sport zoom 1232.It stopped running,will not start unless

Small piece of dirt or debis under the fuel inlet needle causing the engine to flood out. I would clean the seat with a q-tip and a little jewlers rouge, polish the seat and install a new needle. Hope this helps. If it still leaks then replace the needle and seat due to it being damaged

SOURCE: I have a 25 cc

the other possibilities you have is a bad crank seal, or a flywheel came loose and its out of time, will it fire on carb cleaner sprayed in the carb, If it runs for seconds and , then I would say it's not getting fuel, If it only farts once or twice then I would check crank seals cause if they are leaking then your crankcase cannot draw vacumn which in turn causes fuel pump in carb to draw fuel, If you have to check flywheel pull it apart and take flywheel nut off and pull flywheel off and inspect the key that is built into flywheel to see if it is sheared off or messed up, also while checking muffler check for the opening that the mud dobbers havent put mud in muffler pipe, good luck

SOURCE: My Toro model 20018 won't

Check if there is spark. Take out the spark plug again and hold against cylinder head with screwdriver. Start motor as usual, see if there is spark on plug when starting. if there is no spark replace ignition module .The next thing is there fuel getting to engine. My guess is that you have a plugged carb. jet. Clean out and reassemble. Be careful not to lose the small parts. Good luck

SOURCE: After priming engine starts first

Hi well this is a little odd,however i have come across a similar thing like this before and what fixed it was the tank breather, it was blocked and after a while the tank developed a vacuum and gas wouldn't flow, so i wonder if this is the same or similar worth a try anyway? try loosening the top a little and see? If that works check the breather tube?
Otherwise, i think that it still must be a gas problem and would troubleshoot that area? maybe the float sticks?

SOURCE: cannot get the saw to start, even with starter

I assume you have installed a new spark plug. Most common problem is the fuel pump diaphram in the carbuerator goes bad. Rebuild the carb in that case... about $20 for the kit... Last problems are the magneto coil or that the flywheel key has sheared causing timing to be off.

I have a Ariens snowblower deluxe 30 which is a year old. Starts fine and will run. Unfortunatley it is running way to low. I have replace the gas with fresh gas ran it through completely

It is very possible the carbureator needs a cleaning. Moisture can corrode the inner parts of them if left all summer. I find that the fuel usually does not go bad over the summer. I always start my snowblower once a month over the summer and then have no problems when the snow flies again. There was a time when mine was losing power and quitting also. There is a screw on the bottom of my carbureator that needed adjusting. If you are lucky that may be all you need. By turning mine in and out a bit I found the spot where the gas was correct and it worked fine again.

I have just cleaned the carb and put new fuel line on this saw. I also put a new primer bulb and filter on it. Ican get it started and it will rev up and then die like it is starving for fuel. I bough this...

Ok first the plug gap is around .030". Next you have to have compression. With the sparkplug in you should be able to feel the "hard" spots while pulling the starter rope. The rope should not just pull out smoothly. Now for the carburetor. Start by screwing the hi and lo jets in as far as they will go. Gently screw them in, don't force them or you will damage the needle and seat. Now turn them out 11/2 turns each. The idle speed will be adjusted later. Make sure that the fuel is fresh and has the right amount of oil in it. Now start it up and let it warm up. You may have to use the throttle to keep it running. Adust the idle screw so that it will run on it's own. Now adjust the lo jet until you get the highest rpm, adjust the idle to keep it at a good idle. Now adjust the hi jet, you do this at full throttle until you get the hight rpm. Let it idle, now open the throttle, if it hesitates turn the lo jet out about 1/8-1/4 turns and try it again.

Sears intek 20 hp, fresh gas, filters air and gas, oil, and plug still won't start where should small valve and screw adjustment be set to, may be the problem don't know. won't stay running...

If you have not been putting gas treatment in your gas to treat the ethenol they have been putting into the gas its a good chance its the needle valve in the carborator. If you live in a state that does not add ethenol to the gas disregard this advise.
