Small Engine Troubleshooting Problems? Ask a Mechanic Now.
How long before it will restart? Before you start the engine, turn the key on and off and listen for the fule solenoid click at the carburetor, learn what it sounds like. Then when engine quits, flip key on and off and listen for the click. No click, no fuel! The solenoid has to have 12 volts at all times the key is on, and it plugs the main jet in the carburetor if it does not open.
