Small Engine Troubleshooting Problems? Ask a Mechanic Now.
Hi, my name is***** will be assisting you.
The first thing that I would look for is an air leak between the carburetor and the cylinder. This would cause the machine to run high rpm when idling but not take fuel or not get enough fuel to run when the throttle is operated. I would also check the fuel lines to make certain that they are in good condition and not broken or cracked.
Thank you it has been a pleasure to assist you. If you need additional assistance feel free to ask.
