Ice auger leaks gas

3 posts in this topic

I have a ice auger that leaks gas. The gas leaks out of the bottom of the carb and leaks out of exhaust. It does run but is very hard starting. I suspect that the problem is with the float in the carb. Is this an easy fix or should I have the professional look at it?

I bought mine as a reconditioned unit and also had a leak problem. Since I had just bought it, I took the auger in to Big Lake and they fixed it right there in about 15 minutes. Apparently there was a part that got bent open when the carburator was assembled that didn't stop the flow of gas into the carb. Now it works great.

It's the diaphram not to bad to fix on your own.
