Small Engine Troubleshooting Problems? Ask a Mechanic Now.
Hi Randy, my name is Kenny
Can I get a little more information, what is the make of this engine ? do you know the CC size and what is this used on, and when did you purchase it and when was the last time you use it, that will help me tremendously !
Thanks Randy, are you able to wok on this ?
Also what was the time in between the times you used it ?
Also is this a hand held or push ? if there is a model number on the unit can I get that?
OK, I think you have one of these, please click on the picture to confirm
Randy what I'm trying to establish is if this unit has been sitting and not being used, if so I want to get an idea for how long ?
OK lets try removing the spark plug and then pull the start cord to see if the engine will turn over, there might be an issue from sitting where an over abundance of fuel has accumulated in the cylinder and is hydro-locked, (be careful when pulling because gas might squirt out) try tipping it over with the spark plug hole facing down. If it had fuel in the cylinder then let it dry, you can clean the spark plug or replace and then try to start without choking at first.
