Small Engine Troubleshooting Problems? Ask a Mechanic Now.
Hello, and thank you for choosing Just Answer. I am Donald. I will be happy to assist you.
I would like to ask you a troubleshooting question.
Did you drain your fuel tank, and your carburetor, at the end of the last snow season?
Based upon the symptoms you are describing, you have a partially clogged jet inside your carburetor. Are you familiar with removing your fuel bowl?
If so, remove your fuel bowl and clean it, and the underside of your carburetor. Use a small wire and some carburetor cleaner in a can, to clean every small hole you see. You can use a twist tie from a loaf of bread, to clean the holes. Just remove the outer coating from it.
Follow up with some compressed air, if you have an air compressor. You and I can continue from here. Thanks!
