Small Engine Troubleshooting Problems? Ask a Mechanic Now.
good afternoon my name is ***** ***** me look this up for you and i will reply back in a couple minutes
does this have a tecumseh engine?
without the specif numbers of the engine i cant look into detail but.... i believe this engine is new enough where as the carb is jetted and non adjustable. the load screw adjustment would be at the bottom of the fuel bowl. do you have an adjusting screw or just a plug there?
ok then glad i asked
start by screwing the needle screw in until it seats. then back it out 1 1/4 turn. start engine and run at high idle. turn screw in until engine stumbles. turn screw out until engine stumbles and adjust screw in between
there is no exact set point because of different fuels used in different climates and different applications
one more thought on this..... are you using a high or low grade of fuel? with or without ethanol?
the newer ethanol fuel id very very hard on small engine carbs, especially when it sits in the machine for an extended amount of time. draining the gas is even worse. it eats away at the aluminum and brass and will leave deposits. i strongly recommend running an ethanol free high grade fuel to help stop this issue from happening. There is an additive i highly recommend for your issue called "sea foam"
it works amazing on this issue and sometimes saves you from having to take apart the carb.
depending on your area.... in upstate NY we have had ethanol for a few years now in our lower grade fuel. i would try the sea foam first and see if that helps
if there is anything else i can help you with feel free to ask.....
if your satisfied with the answers please take a moment to rate the service and ill close out the case
thank you and have a fantastic new year (hopfully you will not need that blower to much)
