Small Engine Troubleshooting Problems? Ask a Mechanic Now.
Hello, and thank you for choosing Just Answer. My name is***** will be happy to assist you. I will need to ask you some troubleshooting questions.
Did you have gas left inside your fuel tank from last last summer?
Some oil is normal, if present there. How old was the gas you emptied out of your fuel tank ?
I do apologized for the delay. I am responding via my mobile phone.
I believe our problem is carburetor related.
You very likely have a partially clogged main jet.
Are you familiar with removing your carburetor float bowl?
It is located on the bottom of your carburetor. It is held in place with one screw.
The screw is in the center of your fuel bowl.
Is your engine a Briggs & Stratton?
Thanks for this information Alice.
Your air filter covers the front of your carburetor.
Look right below your air filter housing, you will see your carburetor.
It will have a shiny bowl on it.
Is one screw in the center, and the other one sort to the side of your bowl.
I am willing to work with you to figure out what is causing our problem.
No problem Alice. I hope all goes well for you.
You are very welcome.
There should be a link to customer service, on your discussion page.
