Welcome to JUST ANSWER small engines, let me try to help you !! Is there an electric solenoid in the carburetor float bowl? If there is , the solenoid is not opening the main jet. If no solenoid,the carburetor main jet is plugged, it consists of the bowl bolt with it's small holes and the jet that the bowl bolt screws into.
