Small Engine Troubleshooting Problems? Ask a Mechanic Now.
Hello and thank you for choosing Just Answer. My names is Donald. I will be happy to assist you.
I would like to confirm something. Are you saying that your engine will spin, but not start up, or, are you saying that you get nothing when you turn your key to start position?
Thank you for this information. Have you checked to see if you are getting spark to your spark plug?
Okay. Let's try something. Do you have some carburetor cleaner in a can. If so, spray a small burst directly into your carburetor, to see if your engine will start briefly.
It is normal for fuel to not be visible in your fuel filter. So, your engine started without carburetor cleaner??
How are you coming along?
We need to determine if your engine shut down , due to a restriction in your fuel flow, or due to a safety feature shorting down your ignition.
