Small Engine Troubleshooting Problems? Ask a Mechanic Now.
Hello. Thank you for choosing Just answer. My name is***** will be happy to assist you. Will your engine continue to run, after it start up?
This is only a troubleshooting question.
I am back with you. The reason I asked if your engine will continue to run, is because many times when this problem occurs, it is due to your choke not fully closing.
Although your choke lever is in full choke position, the choke valve on your carburetor could be partially open.
Do you have some carburetor cleaner in a can, or starting fluid?
If so, spray a small burst directly into your carburetor, to see if your engine will start up immediately. If your engine does start up immediately and run, then it is very likely that your choke is the source of our problem.
Yes, I remember our discussion from back in April. In your initial question, I requested the model, type, and code numbers for your engine. Can you get these numbers for me? I would like to pull up a diagram of your specific engine. I am willing to work with you, until we figure out what is causing our problem. Your satisfaction is very important to me.
Awesome! Thanks, ***** ***** the picture now. I am away from my computer at the moment. When I return, I will let you know, and we can continue from here.
I am back. I would like for you to try something, as a part of a process of elimination, just to be sure.
Loosen your choke cable, then manually apply your choke. I still feel that your choke is not fully closing.
