If this is a prime type carb then the carb need cleaned and a new needle and seat installed. It starts and almost immediatley stops indicates its running on the primed fuel only. Some models of briggs engines do have a auto matic choke. I doubt if its this one.
Please indicate engine model and type numbers which are located on the front of the blower housing or on a tab that sticks off the side of the blower housing.If I had these numbers I could determine if your engine has a auto choke

Choke is an adjustment to air intake to adjust fuel/air mixture and is heat related. Do not fully open choke as soon as it starts. Gradually open as the trimmer warms up. If a happy medium can not be found then fuel adjustments will be needed on carburetor.

BRAND NEW ENGINE. USED THE FIRST TIME DURING HURICANE IRENE. OIL LEVEL IS FULL, USED REGULAR GAS AND HAS BEEN CHECKED FOR IMPURITIES. PROBLEM IS THAT AFTER 32 HOURS, THE ENGINE WILL ONLY RUN FOR 15...


Hi, if it re starts immediately and requires choking it is a fuel related problem. If it has to sit for a while before restarting, check for lost spark as soon as it stops. If no spark make sure the unit is level and oil is full when sitting level otherwise the oil cutoff switch will shut it down. If oil and unit levelling are ok and there is no spark the cdi unit is most likely faulty. Hope this helps, regards Phil.

I TURN MY KIDS PC ON AND IT STARTS UP BUT THEN IT GETS TO WINDOWS AND IT LOOKS LIKE IT IS ABOUT TO COME COME UP BUT GOS TO THE BLUE SCREEN FOR 1 SECOUND AND STARTS BACK UP AGAIN OVER AND OVER.


A blue screen or Blue Screen Of Death, BSOD, is generally caused by a corrupt driver or a bad software installation.
First, you need to determine the STOP code that is on that screen.
  • Start in safe mode, press F8 repeatably as the computer starts up,
  • check Disable automatic restart on system failure (This prevents Windows from automatically restarting if an error causes Windows to fail.)

OK, now the BSOD will stay there so you can determine what caused your problem. Report back the stop code and any information about a driver that caused the problem so we can be of further help.

My chainsaw starts with choke when choke is off and i press trigger it just dies like its getting no fuel


Check the fuel filter, muffler, and air cleaner for plugging. Check the condition of the fuel lines for hardness, splitting, end rot, or kinking. Make sure the carburetor fasteners are tight. If no help, remove the lower carburetor chamber cover and examine the diaphragm and fuel metering valve that it controls. The diaphragm should not be hard, cracked or have any holes. The fuel valve has a rubber tip that may have deteriorated. If looks ok, then turn both L and H jet needles CW to stops (lightly), then back out CCW 1-1/2 turns each. Engine should start and run with these basic settings. Allow the engine to warm up, then pull the throttle full on. Adjust H needle CW until the engine speeds up somewhat, but is 4-stroking. Correct adjustment is when the engine continues to 4-stroke, but immediately 2-strokes when cutting. Allow to idle, and adjust L CW until the engine runs fairly well, but will allow the engine to 'follow the throttle'. Set idle speed screw so that the chain stops moving, but the engine continues to run. Hope this helps!

Gauge light on?


Gauge light illuminates when the ignition is switched on. It should extinguish as soon as the engine starts.
If it illuminates with the engine running, it indicates a malfunction with the engine management system. Have this checked as soon as possible.
If it flashes when driving, reduce the vehicle speed immediately until the light illuminates constantly. If it continues to flash, avoid heavy acceleration and high engine speed, stop the vehicle and have it checked immediately.
On some vehicles this light may be red – again stop the vehicle and seek assistance.
If it is safe to do so, try stopping the vehicle, switching off the engine, wait two minutes, then restarting the engine to reset the engine management system.
With the light illuminated, the vehicle is still safe to drive as long as no other faults are apparent with the engine. Have the vehicle checked by a dealer or garage as soon as possible to avoid any damage being caused to the catalytic converter.
