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 :

First, check the carburetor to see what has happened. If it`s clogged, there are three options: clean the carburetor, rebuild it, or replace it entirely. If a clogged fuel filter is the source of the issue, you`ll likely need to replace it.
If you are using too lean of a gas mix, the pistons will not be lubricated properly, and they will freeze up in time. This happens very quickly when you use regular gas in a two-cycle engine. You will not be able to pull the draw cord to start the blower once the pistons have locked up.
If your blower is having a difficult time starting, then you may be dealing with a carburetor issue. The carburetor`s job is to ensure the proper mix of fuel and air is directed to the blower`s engine. As mentioned, the carburetor can become clogged, making it difficult for fuel and air to enter the engine.
Car AC Not Blowing Cold Air: A Bad Fuse

Find the fuse associated with the A/C blower motor. If the blower motor fuse is still in-tact, your problem is located elsewhere. If the fuse is blown, simply replacing the fuse with an identical fuse of the same amperage rating could get your system working again!

If you see a weak stream or nothing at all, then you could have a failed pump, a blocked fuel line, a clogged fuel filter, or an empty gas tank. Check the fuel pump pressure. Attach a fuel pressure gauge either to the fuel line at the carburetor or to the pump outlet then crank the engine.
DIY Frequently Asked Questions / What will happen if you put straight gas in a 2-cycle engine? Without any oil in the fuel for lubricating, the engine will seize up and will probably be ruined. Always remember to use the oil/gas mixture in the proper ratio recommended by the mower manufacturer.
Source of crankcase gases

These blow-by gases, if not ventilated, inevitably condense and combine with the oil vapor present in the crankcase, forming oil sludge or causing the oil to become diluted with unburned fuel.

Mechanical or electrical issues are the two main categories of industrial blower fan failure that can completely stop the fan. Faulty belts, loose pulleys, insufficient power, inadequate wire size, blown fuses, and other issues can occur in these areas.
Pull the fuel filter from the housing and remove the pre-filter from the rest of the unit. Wash the pre-filter using soapy water and place it for about an hour on a rag or paper towel to dry. Remove the felt filter element and either blow it out using a can of air or clean it using a paintbrush.

Having problem getting fuel to carb on JD LA 105 lawn tractor with B&S 19.5 gas engine. I replaced fuel filter and fuel pump but gas will not flow to carb. Gas flows from filter to pump and I can pour gas in line to carb and engine will run until gas runs out of line but gas will not flow through pump. Could new pump be bad , if so how can I check it out?

Ryobi gas I changed the primer bulb and gas lines on my machine and now it doesn’t get any gas to the carb. The primer bulb pumps it up, when i take the gas line loose at the brass fitting on the bottom of the carb, gas spews out. If I pour gas straight into the carb, it will start and run until that gas is gone, then it goes dead. It’s like the gas goes to the fitting but won’t go into the carb, even if you pull the trigger like you were running the thing. Any suggestions? Gasless
ANSWER : Check the fuek lines for hole and leaks, check the fuel filter and clean if necessary. remove the carbuerator and inspect the gasket; it should be soft and flexible, if it seems hard or brittle replace it. clean the carb with carb cleaner sray (available at any local auto parts store) and compressed air. make sure you get inside the small fuel rail holes. also check the primer bulb for pin holes and proper seating/seal. if that doesn’t work have the carb repaired at a service center or replaced.

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?
ANSWER : I had a similar problem with a sears tractor. close to the carbarator is a rectangle box with a rubber hose going to the engine block – remove the hose and spray carb cleaner in the hose wait a few mins and try again – its a vacuum for the carb

Need to know what carb screw adjustment need to be set at weedeater starts for about 4-7 sec then shuts down put new hoses on checked gas filter and cap checked out ok. i pump the ball about 10 times ,pull cord &starts for about 4-7 sec then shuts down,like no gas or electrical problem. i played with the screw settings & dont know where they shoould be set at . had carb all apart ,put in new plug doesnt seem to matter what i do it does the same thing . any thoughts?also when it starts the motor will rev up when u hit the gas and when it shuts down the gas hose from the tank is still full of gas
ANSWER : If there is a choke adjustment you should set that at full until the trimmer warms up, don’t touch the gas. Then repull start at half choke, don’t touch the gas either at this time. Then start at no choke, and then set your idle on the carberator with the adjustment screw. Also don’t push the primer bulb so many time you will cause the spark plug to get flooded and drown out the spark, which is exactly what is happening.
