Water in the carb float bowl? Remove the carb then remove the float bowl. Use spray carb cleaner to clean the carb. Pay special attention to the main jet.

How do you start a 19th mtd riding mower

Put your left foot on the clutch pedal and push down all the way on the clutch. Move the throttle lever all the way to the top, this turns on the choke. Turn the key clockwise, to the right, to start the engine. Once the engine has started, move the throttle lever down to turn off the choke. You only need the choke when the engine is cold. If you use the choke while the engine is hot, you can flood the engine (too much gas) and this will fowl the spark plug. If you have flooded the engine, turn off the choke by lowering the throttle lever and try to start the engine a few times. If the engine doesn't start, then you may need to wait 20 to 30 minutes before trying to start the engine again. If the engine still does not start, then you can remove the spark plug to dry and to clean the spark plug. With the spark plug out, turn the key to the start position for 10 seconds, to push out excess fuel and fumes. Replace the spark plug and try starting the engine without turning on the choke.

Chokes and Dies when cutting

Adjust the choke or carburetor. In case your chainsaw stalls when the engine is idling, ensure that the choke is set properly. To do so, first try releasing it to adjust it, and then move the plate and tighten all screws once again. To loosen any grit, spray carburetor cleaner spray on the choke's shaft. The carburetor may also need to be adjusted; consult your owner's manual which will guide you on resetting the idle mix screw.

Cub cadet rzt50 with kawasaki engine keeps flooding and dying. changed plugs fuel filter. dismantled carb and celaned throroughly. check for spark it was good. i can see gas filling up into chamber jsut...

Check that the choke and throttle adjustment are synced correctly. It sounds like what happens when the choke is coming on too early in the throttle application (choke applied when in the non choke full throttle start detention). I don't have the exact method without looking it up....something like this-a pin goes through a hole in the throttle bracket to line up the throttle and choke together while you make the cable adjustment. Your engine manual should give the procedure. If that doesn't take care of it then suspect worn needle and seat on the carburetor.Hope this helped Tim

Flooding want start(New Carb)

Give the chainsaw a break by turning everything off. Flip off the on/off switch. Turn the throttle off. Push or pull the choke to the off position and deal with anything else that might need to be switched off (off is the key word). Some even suggest removing the spark plug, pulling the cord a couple of times, then replacing the plug.
By doing all this you will make the saw (and you) more comfortable and start the process of clearing a flooded engine. Just as important, you've given yourself a minute or two more to recoup.

Flooding usually prevents a saw from starting. Flooding is the major cause of a stalled chain saw engine. Flooding is caused by too much gas applied at the wrong time. You need to prevent or remedy the flooding effect. The rebooting step (step #2) will improve this condition. Another suggestion loggers make is pulling the engine's cord through 8 times with all systems off. I don't know if this actually drains the liquid gas or gives a bit more time to counteract the excess liquid gas but I am assured it works. Do it 8 times!

Now. Set the on/off switch in the "on" position. The throttle "on" position should be turned on only as a last resort. Actually, I am told some late-model chainsaws specifically instruct you to tweak the throttle - so do it if instructed. Put the choke to the "on" position. The procedure in step #3 helps clear the engine of too much "liquid" gasoline. Again, putting down the saw down for a cup of coffee or soda will sometimes do the same thing.
OK. Everything should be back on..

Make sure you have the choke in the "on" position. When you do, pull the engine cord several times through until the engine "pops" one time. A pop is a quick audible response and **** by the engine without cranking. Please, NO more than one pop with choke on or you risk another fatal flood.

With the choke in the off position, pull the engine's crank cord through again. The engine should start in 1 to 3 pulls. Try it first without using the throttle control (unless recommended by the manufacturer). Colder weather or a saw just out of storage can complicate these instructions. Here is further advice from an About Forestry Forum poster: "If I haven't gotten a pop in four pulls I transition to the part throttle, no-choke position and if I haven't gotten a start in maybe 8 pulls I return to the choke position for one or two pulls. I am sure this varies with different chainsaws, but you shouldn't have to pull very many times in the choke position, even in cold weather."

If you need more help come back.Post / thumbs / testimonial are welcome!

My yamaha 400 dragstar will start easily and run on choke, but as soon as the throttle is touched the engine cuts out, will not start on throttle only on choke.

That's a fuelling problem
Sounds like she has been laid up for a while -
If more than 5 or6 months then you'll have to drain & replace the fuel from both the tank & carbs
If over a year then you may need to strip the carbs

It could just be sticky floats - try adding a carb cleaner to your fuel

Tractor starts fine on full choke, but as soon as you put it on throttle it cuts out. it also cant sustain it if you engage gear or turn on the blades to start cutting

You may have something stuck in the mower deck. If you nuse a mirror you can look under the deck and see if anything is jammed there. If the blades are jammed it will stall the motor.

I have a briggs and stratton 14 hp ohv engine on my murray lawn mower it starts and runs good until i go to full throttle or engage the blades then it seems to flood out and start backfiring i can lower...

It sounds like you are putting it into choke mode. The choke is usually all the way up on tractors. And it will make it backfire and flood out. Just rev it high enough to work and don't go into the choke mode. hope this helps.

When the choke is fully up the, engine cuts out , canyou help me? can it be the carb. needs new parts? never had problems with this mower. tx. in advance guy

When the choke is full up you are flooding the engine, not allowing it to run. There should be a notch on the throttle control where you move it to after it starts. Moving the throttle control fully up helps get the engine started but you do not leave it there to run. Check the air filter as well it may be dirty.
