Small Engine Troubleshooting Problems? Ask a Mechanic Now.
Hello. Thank you for choosing Just Answer. My name is***** will be happy to assist you. How long did your engine run after you got it started, after the 35 pulls?
Do you have some carburetor cleaner in a can?
The reason I asked, is because, I would like for you to spray a small burst of carburetor cleaner, directly into your carburetor, to see if your engine will start up and run briefly.
If your engine starts up after you spray the carburetor cleaner into your carburetor, then it is possible that your choke is not fully closing, during start up.
With the model numbers for your engine, I can check to see what type of choke you have. If you can try the carburetor cleaner in the morning, and get the model numbers from your engine, this will give us a good starting point, for troubleshooting.
I will need the Briggs and Stratton model, type, and code numbers. Some chokes are thermostatically controlled, and should be completely closed when your engine is cold, and during initial started up. The choke automatically opens as your engine heats up.
