Husqvarna 6021P won't stay running.

Mower doesn't seem to be getting gas. I can shoot some carb cleaner in it and it will start but immediately die. I'm definately getting gas to the carb but not sure where to go past that. Carb appears clean from what I can see. Spark plug is good. Mower is less than 1 year old.

Any thoughts, or more specifically, any info on really taking apart and cleaning the carb?

Yep, the carburetor is clogged/gummed up. You'll need to drop the bowl and see how bad it is. Clean it with carb cleaner and you should be good.

Ok, dropped the bowl, good bit of gunk in there. Cleaned it out and soaked it with carb cleaner.

It's...... Better. It'll start and die like before, but now it'll do it consistently. Where before it would do that once and then every pull after was dead. I can't really get at anything else easily.

Any thoughts? And pictures would be great if someone can point me towards some.

The carb is still partially clogged. Push a wire from a twist tie through all the holes in the carb that you can see.

model 6021P

dealt with same issue on sisters mower. the float needle is sticking and not allowing the bowl to refill. remove air cleaner assembly, remove fuel line and plug with screw and tie up so not flowing. Remove side bolt to drain bowl, then replace. remove bottom bolt to remove bowl. Slide pin out of float and pull float downwards exposing needle on spring in float. Spray and clean with carb cleaner making sure all foreign particles are removed. Clean bowl, sediment and acidic reaction from ethanol usually present. Clean all components well and replace in reverse order. Reattach fuel line, reattach vacuum lines and air filter assembly. should crank and run now until more dirt gets into system. Probably cause originally by dirty air cleaner, hers was, she mows a lot of dirty dusty low grass areas sucking in dirt.
