I need help

Have 15HP b&s motor that will not start. I have cleaned the carburetor out and it still will not start. On the other hand, pour a little gas in the carburetor and it starts right up.... What is the problem?

Welcome to the forums.

Not a pro but it sounds like fuel is not getting to the carb.

Will it stay running if you start it by pouring gas in there?

It likely has an anti-backfire solenoid on the carb bowl. Make sure the wire is on it and it's working.

You say pour gas in and it starts right up. What next? Does it keep running, or does it shut off after burning the gas you poured in?
