Any tips on rebuilding a? My &S generator only runs on choke

Customer Question

Any tips on rebuilding a carburetor? My B&S generator only runs on choke as well. I also have a gas pressure washer that almost starts but then shuts off so probably the same issue.
JA: Do you have fuel in the tank? If so, is the shut-off valve open and the fuel clean?
Customer: Yes. The have been sitting for several months but I try to start them periodically.
JA: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?
Customer: If not too complicated. Otherwise any idea of the cost to take it in?
JA: Anything else we should know to help you best?
Customer: No. Both are only a few years old with minimal use.
