Could this be carerator adjustment
Experienced gardeners share their insights in answering this question :
It could well be a carb adjustment issue, however before doing any adjustments you need to make sure the air filter is clean, the fuel filter in the tank has been changed, and if there is a spark arrestor in the muffler outlet it is nopt carboned up.

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 :

Symptoms of Legionnaires` disease can develop up to 10 days after exposure to the bacteria. Symptoms include fever, chills, a cough, shortness of breath, aching muscles, headache, tiredness, loss of appetite and diarrhoea. Legionella bacteria can multiply in bagged potting mix, mulch and other soil products.
Anyone who develops a high fever, breathlessness and/or a cough after handling garden soil, compost, mulch, or potting mix should visit a doctor as soon as possible.
* If you, or a friend or family member have been working hard in the garden on a hot day and begin experiencing symptoms such as dizziness or loss of consciousness, difficulty in speaking or breathing, heart palpitations, chest pain or stiffness, and a fever, it could be heat exhaustion, heat stroke, a stroke, or a
This disease is often caused by inhaling or by spreading the bacteria from hand to mouth after handling potting mix, soil or compost. Early symptoms resemble the flu and begin to appear two to ten days after exposure. Legionnaires` disease can be fatal in a small number of people.
How Histoplasmosis Affects Your Body. You get histoplasmosis by inhaling microscopic fungal spores that are released into the air by activities that disturb contaminated soil. Once inhaled, if the person has a healthy immune system, the fungus can cause mild symptoms and lead to lung infection or pneumonia.
Hay fever symptoms from pollen allergies

Allergies to pollen commonly cause symptoms of hay fever including: runny, itchy, congested nose. sneezing. irritable, itchy, watery and red eyes.

“Climber`s Cough” is the term used when vigorous exercise induces a cough, especially when the exercise involves a change in altitude, like stair climbing. This cough starts for most climbers within a few minutes of reaching the top.
For those doing more extensive gardening and yard work, removing weeds could be an easy way to trigger allergies. Like grass, weeds also have pollen that spreads through the air, leading to symptoms including sneezing and itching.
Disease and plant risks

There are two types to which gardeners may be exposed: Legionella longbeachae, occuring in soil and compost, which can lead to a respiratory disease; and the more common L. pneumonophila, which leads to a type of pneumonia known as legionnaires disease.

Many times after cutting grass, people will experience an influx in grass allergy symptoms such as a sore throat due to the amount of grass and other pollen being put into the air.
People with allergies to grass or pollen can feel incredibly sick after mowing a lawn. If you know you have allergies, take one or more of the following precautions before mowing your lawn to reduce symptoms. If you already take allergy medications, take them before mowing. Don`t mow your lawn in the morning.
“[Cold dry air makes] the airways lose water vapour and that causes an indirect spasm in the airways that causes wheezing and coughing,” he says. For people with asthma this is known as an indirect response, as opposed to a direct response, which occurs when someone reacts to their known asthma triggers.

My mower is 4 months old, I used it 5 times in the spring and tried to use it today and it would only start after I primed it. It stalls after 2 seconds every time.
ANSWER : The float and needle are stuck (if carb separate from tank), the main jet is plugged with trash, or the diaphram needs replaced (carb mounted on tank)(not so likely with as little age as this has on it)

Cranks up and runs fine ,then starts cutting out then runs fine and starts cutting out again
ANSWER : I am no pro but my suggestion to you is if you have changed your spark plug recently check the gap on it and make sure it is right and make sure is the right spark plug for it. Also check the oil if it is low the motor as it gets hot will start to sputter or if it has to much oil it will have an air lock and blow you Lhead gasket after a while. Another thing to check is the air filter to make sure it is clean and check the timing with this if you don’t trust your self ask an repair expert for your brand of mower.

Strimmer starts and runs but cuts out when at full power
ANSWER : Easiest place to look first would be to see if one of the fuel hoses has split. May be hard to see but that would cause it to **** air instead of fuel. Eventually, the split or hole would become so big that it wouldn’t stay running at all, and probably not even start. If that doesn’t do it, make sure the fuel you have is still good and try running a little Seafoam with the fuel and see if it clears up. After that, I would be looking at carefully cleaning the carburetor which may require dis-assembly as well as new gaskets etc.

Chainsaw stalls Chainsaw is 4 years old and has a history of moderate use. After I ran the saw about 1 minute on plain gas (grabbed the wrong gas can – ouch) the chainsaw sputtered and stopped.

It didn't seize, and the pull starter never became more or less difficult than normal. The engine would continue to start if I pressed the prime bulb and engaging the choke, but stall again after 10-20 seconds. The temperature that day was about 50 degrees F and I was running the saw with the “cold plug” installed (per warm weather running).

When it refused to keep running I did the following:
Flushed the fuel tank (that's when I saw the gas had no oil in it).
Ran hardware wire through all of the fuel lines.
Replaced the fuel filter and spark plug.
Cleaned the air filter with a nylon brush and compressed air.

Same behavior (start then stall in less than 20 seconds). I made at least 20+ attempts to start it.

I removed the carburetor and, though it looked perfectly clean, I took off the top and bottom covers then sprayed everything with automotive carb cleaner and blew out the passages with compressed air. The gasket and diaphragm looked new. No pinholes in the diaphragm when held against a bright light. I reinstalled the carb but got the same behavior (start then stall in less than 20 seconds). I again made at least 20+ attempts to start it.

I disassembled the short block and saw that the piston has some slight scoring on it. The ring is clean and I verified that the piston ring has .001 clearance between it and the piston ring groove all the way around with the ring held tightly in place (I was thinking that the piston might have become deformed if it did indeed get too hot when run without any oil premix).

The cylinder wall has no scoring and there isn't any signs of melted aluminum anywhere. The crank is clean as was the inside of the crank cover.

I reinstalled the crank cover using permatex non-hardening gasket goop and torqued the cover bolts to 10 inch pounds. I reassembled everything else per the exploded diagrams in Echo's “parts manual” for the CS400.

During assembly I took note that both the carb gasket and intake boot look like new.

Still the same result: press prime bulb once, engage choke, pull a few times and it starts but stalls after 10-20 seconds.

I'm stumped.

ANSWER : Not sure what to say other than its fuel starvation, if not already done replace the fuel filter in the tank, if no better i would suspect a massive air leak, so replace the crank seals, if there is no primary compression in the crankcsae fuel will not pull through the engine, good luck.
