Small Engine Troubleshooting Problems? Ask a Mechanic Now.
Hi, my name is***** will be assisting you.
What if you remove the air filter and spray a little bit of carburetor cleaner or fuel directly into the throat of the carburetor. Will it start then?
Since you are telling me that it at least fired like it wanted to start and run when you sprayed the carburetor cleaner in it this tells me that you are not getting fuel through the jets on the carburetor. Machine being new with one hour of run on it can be an issue especially if fuel was left in the carburetor. I am going to recommend a thorough cleaning of the carburetor jets. If you continued to spray carburetor cleaner in the throat of the carburetor would the engine continue to run?
