Small Engine Troubleshooting Problems? Ask a Mechanic Now.
Hi, my name is***** me review the issue, and I will be more than happy to help resolve it as quickly as possible. I will return in under 5 minutes
can you apply the choke and keep machine running a little longer?
mowing should only be done at full throttle as when put under a load at less, the engine can over heat and cause issues in future uses. Just a little info that all the small engine manufacturers recommend.
sounds like the carb has a partially clogged jet and needs to be removed and cleaned
do you have a choke knob or do you just push throttle all the way forwards for choke?
what is the model and type of this engine ?
these carb use a choke. the throttle all the way up should be choke, and then you move it downwards a little, there should be a notch (FULL THROTTLE) if you can push the throttle all the way up and machine will run a little longer, there is still debris clogging a jet and carb will need to be gone through again
this engine came with either a WALBRO or NIKKI carb, which does yours have?
Briggs and Stratton #697241
