Husqvarna Lawn Mower Starts, then Dies


My Husqvarna push mower starts, then dies after a couple seconds. I have used it a couple times since the spring started. I put fresh gas in it, cleared out the air filter, and sprayed carb cleaner into the carburetor. What now?

At least 95% of the time it's a fuel issue.
Just spraying cleaner into the carb. is not doing anything.
Still using ethanol fuel?
Left gas in the tank over the winter?

Dump the gas already in the tank, refill with ethanol free gas, with an ounce or so of Seafoam, then fire it up.


Here's a link on where to buy ethanol free gas.

Go ahead and change the spark plug while you're at it.

Might want to throw some Sta-bil in there.
