ENGINE SYMPTOMS
When your engine will not start, or starts and stops, or surges or runs only on choke, it most likely the carb that needs to be cleaned.

Leaking Fuel -- Carb Issue
Starts and then stops running -- Lack of Fuel, Carb Issue
Surging or lack of power -- Carb Issue
Runs with choke only -- Lack of Fuel, Carb Issue
Not Running at all -- Carb Issue or Coil
Hard to start -- Carb Issue, Clean and Tune
Oil out exhaust + air filter, backfires when starting, pulls your arm -- Flywheel Key, Flywheel
Backfire/flames through the carb, will not start -- Stuck Valve
Backfire through exhaust, will not start -- Spring / Throttle Mechanism

FUEL MANAGEMENT
Lower octane fuel contains 10% ethanol which can attract moisture over the winter depending on the storage area of your mower.
Use high Grade Premium fuel mixed with fuel stabilizer.
Only use Chevron 94, Shell V-Power 91-93, Esso Premium , or check to make sure the label is ethanol free.
After last use of equipment fill with the freshest fuel mixed with stabilizer, run the equipment to get fresh fuel to carb. Leave equipment full over the period of storage, up to six months. Fuel valve should also be shutoff if equipped. Also it is very beneficial to run the equipment to operating temperature once a month if practical.

Use Ethanol Free fuel such as Chevron 94.
Add 1 oz of fuel stabilizer to each 5 gallon container
Leave equipment and gas tank full.
Fuel valve should also be shutoff if equipped.
Run the equipment once a month if practical.
