How to Identify and Fix Common Gardening Problems ?
We provide a variety of viewpoints on how to identify and fix common gardening problems. Our sources include academic articles, blog posts, and personal essays from experienced gardeners :
A clogged carburetor is most commonly caused by leaving fuel in the string trimmer for a long period of time. Over time, some of the ingredients in the fuel may evaporate, leaving behind a thicker, stickier substance. This sticky fuel can clog up the carburetor and cause the engine to stall.
The air filter or exhaust port may be blocked. The trimmer may need lubrication and cooling fins or air passages may be blocked. A cordless trimmer`s battery or charger may be faulty.
The Craftsman E450 gas edger features 140cc, 4-cycle Briggs & Stratton engine. The edger is mounted on a steel frame, so you don`t need to carry the extra weight.
A full gas tank and oil reservoir are the essential first steps when checking why the lawn mower won`t stay running, but the problem could also be a dirty filter, clogged carburetor, improper fuel mixture, or a dirty spark plug.
Over time, the spark arrestor can become clogged with soot. If the spark arrestor is clogged, the edger may stall or run roughly. To unclog the spark arrestor, remove it and clean it with a wire brush. You can also replace the spark arrestor.

carb, it will be stamped with an “H” and “L”. Open the screw that is
next to the “H”, counterclockwise about 1/4 turn at a time with the

2010 model 20 hp Briggs motor. Fuel going through fuel line, but not going into carberator. Motor runs good for about 15 min, but after heating up this fuel problem starts. After cooling down for an hour it will run again for about 15 min.\r\nThanks for any advice

1 Is fuel coming out of the fuel line. Older mowers have old fuel lines and they tend to get weak and collapse went they warm up with engine heat. Replace the old fuel line.
2 deposits in the carb. take off the air cleaner, start it up and spray a good carb cleaner in the carb until the engine dies. Put some ‘seafoam’ in the gas and a little in the oil and put the air cleaner back on and start the mower and mow on FULL THROTTLE. this should claen out the carb. Yes the mower will run rough for awhile.
these two cheap fixes will solve 85 % of carb problems. GOOD LUCK

Whats the problem?
Depress clutch, start mower, let out on clutch mower dies. Will run if parking brake is set. Turn blade on dies, put in gear dies. Could it be the switch on the seat?
Almost certainly it is the park break switch,i would start there.
