Hi, my name is***** will be assisting you.

What happens if you spray carburetor cleaner or a little bit of fuel directly into the throat of the carburetor?

Can you tell me what engine you have on this machine?

Expert:  JohnF2015 replied 1 year ago.

I did a little bit of searching and it looks like this model machine primarily had a Toro engine on it that was made by Briggs. The carburetor is basically the same thing as what the Lawnboy machines used since 1996, it is a plastic bodied carburetor and fairly simple in build. You may need to take the carburetor off and thoroughly clean the bowl and jets.
