For a small engine to run well, the carburetor needs to be clean and well maintained. Otherwise, problems can occur that will prevent this important small engine component from doing its best to keep things running smoothly.

As the fuel inside a small engine evaporates, a coagulated, jelly-like substance can form and prevent the carburetor from performing properly. When this problem arises, the carburetor can be removed, cleaned and rebuilt.

Another possible carburetor concern is the needle getting stuck and interrupting the fuel flow within the machine from mixing with the air that enters the carburetor. If this happens, the carburetor needle can be replaced.

To prevent these issues from occurring or to fix the problems after they have already happened, remove the gas from the carburetor by turning off the fuel line and running the engine until it dies, allowing it to burn all the left over fuel.

Remember to clean and replace the air filter regularly so it keeps dirt and debris from entering the carburetor and affecting its performance.
