Small Engine Troubleshooting Problems? Ask a Mechanic Now.
Hello, what exactly do you mean ? Does the electric start work? pull starter? Does the engine turn? Or it just won't start?
If gas is blowing out the muffler the engine is flooded. Check your oil level to see if it reads over filled or smells like gss.
Remove the plug to see if wet, if so dry off. With engine switch in off position pull the rope to see if gas blows out the plug hole..Re install plug and try starting without choke or priming.
Did you try starting?
When was the last time it was running?
There could be some old gas sitting in the carb bowl.Clamp the fuel line and loosen 1 of the carb bowl screws to drain the bowl. Have a rag handy.
