Question about Garden

2 Answers

I have a 3yo cub cadet zrt50 mower with a Kawasaki FH661V engine. I ran a tank of gas through it last week mowing with no problem. This week I filled it up after running out of gas and it will not start. I have gas coming out of tank, through filter and pump into carb. Spark plugs are dry. sprayed carb. with carb cleaner and engine will start on the cleaner but will not keep running...any common problems or suggestions?

    I weekend mechanic....so I haven't been able to get to all of this answer...but it makes sense the problem is carburetor related and may need a good cleaning. Thank you for the quick response.

I would go ahead and put a new fuel filter in it.Remove float bowl and make sure no small particles are hanging float up. Check the vent hole on gas cap and clean if needed. Check clean or replace air filter. I also would drain fuel through system while float cover is off and dispose of it.I would close neddle vales all the way and note position and number of turns to close. Then remove neddle valves and let a small amount of gas run through them. Put valves back in and try to get back as close to where they were.I would also run more carb cleaner thru it and hopefully get and dirt or rust particles cleaned out. Thank you.

Hi libbys2,

I think the fact that you ran out of gas is your problem. There's probably sediment from the tank plugging the jet in the carburetor. If you don't want to take the carb apart, try putting more of the carb cleaner in and running it to flush it out. If that doesn't work, you might have to rebuild the carb.

Hope this helps. If it does, I'd appreciate a 4 thumbs up. Thanks,

Handie Andie

It sounds to me that you have something in your gas tank that is intermittently plugging your gas feed hole. Inspect in your tank for something floating around in there and pull it out.

Kawasaki lawn mower engine


You probably may have valve seals leaking, or an internally vented carb which is now flooding and sending fuel into the oil, this needs addressing straight away as it will cause damage to the engine as it thins out the oil.

Sounds like water in your carberator. Remove the bowl and check for dirt and water, drain some gas from the tank into a bowl and check for water in the gas. Remove air filter housing and lubrcate all of the carberator linking with a product such as WD-40. Reassemble everything and start again. While you are at it check the spark plug too.
