Small Engine Troubleshooting Problems? Ask a Mechanic Now.
Hi, my name is***** will be assisting you.
It does sound like you have sucked something into the carburetor jet which is keeping the machine from running or running properly now. I would suggest a thorough cleaning of the carburetor jets. Can you tell me what engine you have on this machine?
As for the monthly subscription they are asking about, if you don't feel that you would use the services then I would not sign up for a monthly subscription. If you just want to one time help we can continue here, just know that you will receive offers from them asking if you want to sign up for a subscription. Some people do subscribe which allows them to ask as many questions as they need or want to over the course of the month for one fee rather than pay for each question separately.
This sounds like the Troybilt produced engine. The main jet for the carburetor is up inside the carburetor stem on this one. Once you remove the carburetor bowl, go up inside the stem where the bolt threads into that holds the bowl on you will find the jet and fuel nozzle. They both can be removed with a slim flat tip screwdriver, just be careful to not damage the threads that are inside the stem. Once you get them out thoroughly clean the small holes in them and reinstall, this should take care of your problem.
