Small Engine Troubleshooting Problems? Ask a Mechanic Now.
Hi, my name is***** will be assisting you.
It sounds like you either still have some old fuel in the carburetor or the carburetor jets are stopped up not allowing enough fuel to pass through them in order to keep the engine running. What happens if you spray some carburetor cleaner directly into the throat of the carburetor, will it continue to run? Or try priming it about ten to twelve times and see if it will continue to run.
