Customer Question

My B&S model 030325, will not start. My guesss is that gas remained in carborator since last use, and gelled, or sticking the floats orlins inside the carb. It will fire up when i spray cleaner down the choke, but stops after burning it. Fuel is getting to the carb, but not igniting. How cani clean this gunk out? Or do i have it serviced by a tech.

Hello. My name is***** will be happy to assist you. Your carburetor very likely have clogged jets, and fuel passages, due to stale gas that remained in your carburetor, since your last use.

You will need to dis-assemble your carburetor, and soak it really well prior to cleaning it.

It is always best to put in a new carburetor repair kit, after you are finished cleaning your carburetor.

Sometimes carburetors can be difficult to properly clean.
