Small Engine Troubleshooting Problems? Ask a Mechanic Now.
Hi, my name is ***** ***** I will be assisting you.
Does the machine operate properly otherwise? Can you drive the machine around?
It could be that your carburetor jetting is partially stopped up so that the engine can't get enough fuel to continue to run under the extra load.
It could be that the engine is low on compression so that when you apply the additional load it just will not run.
Does the engine start easily?
