Small Engine Troubleshooting Problems? Ask a Mechanic Now.
Hi, my name is***** will be assisting you.
Most likely the carburetor jets are stopped up. The engine can't pull enough fuel through the jets to keep it running properly on its own. You will need to thoroughly clean the carburetor in order to solve the problem. You can clean the jets without removing the entire carburetor, just remove the carburetor bowl and you will have access to the jets that are up inside the stem that sticks down from the carburetor body.
Thank you it has been a pleasure to assist you.
