ttom of the knob.
Experienced gardeners share their insights in answering this question :
I’m assuming it isn’t on a riding mower. Is this on a outdoor gas grill? That little hole, by the knob (usually two) is where the mixing air enters the burner. Most likely that burner’s openings (holes the flames come out of) are clogged, preventing the gas from flowing to burner. Then it comes back out where the air is supposed to enter. Remove burner and either ,clean or replace.

Adjusting the control knob determines the rate of flow and the pressure. Turning clockwise will push the diaphragm down and allow more gas to come into the valve. Turn counter-clockwise to reduce the amount of fuel and pressure.
Gas Line Blockage
If your burner lights for a short time but then goes out, you may have a blockage in the gas valve. The gas line is what provides fuel to the burner to keep it lit. A complete blockage often prevents the burner from lighting at all.
Heres how; First, turn off the gas in the house so you don`t blow yourself up or cause a disaster, loosen the bottom nut, tap the bottom of the plug upward to loosen the tapered plug, remove the tapered plug, lubricate with a special gas valve grease , and re-install the plug, job done.
If you are willing to remove grease from your stove within a few minutes without creating any mess, you can do so with the help of the WD-40 Multi Use Product. The highly potent liquid reacts with the grease stains, loosens them, and makes them come off your gas stove almost immediately.

Do you mix gas and oil in this trimmer – Ryobi 30 Cubic Centimeter Curved Shaft Gas Trimmer
Yes. Verifythe ratio, either 40:1 or 50:1
My tractor stalls like it is starved for gas although the gas tank is full. I,ve changed the fuel filter and the gas cap. I’ve cleaned out the gas tank, gas lines, and the carburetor bowl. The problem seems more acute when the gas tank is full or near full. At this time to alleviate the problem, I blow through the gas cap and the fuel filter fills with gas and it runs good again. But as soon as the fuel filter has no more gas, of course, it stalls until I blow on the gas cap. As the tank gets down to about 1/3 full, the engine runs OK. What else could cause this condition?

Gas leaking out of center hole on gas cap sears weed trimmer 358795150
I had same problem and got a replacement cap at a small engine shop. Seems there is a baffle in the cap to allow the tank to vent and to close off to prevent fuel leaking. Appears rubber baffle deteriorates over time.
