Striike master starting problem


Mr. Pike1

Question

I have everything ready to go. I did a quick test start on my one year old strike master and no go. I am positive I put stabalizer in the small amount of gas that was left in the tank. I added brand new fuel today and pulled until I could pull no more and she would not start. Any advise?

Remember with 2 strokes you have 3 things to look to 1)air 2) fuel, 3) Spark. TRy taking out the plug and testing to make sure you have spark. It's probably not a bad idea to change the plug every year... If the plug is wet and smells like gas you have fuel getting to the spark. Make sure the vent on the gas cap is open.. Good luck!!

Same ting happened to me when I started mine up for first time yesterday. Put choke on full, and hold the throtle down when you pull -worked for me. I also put in a new plug ea yr.

Dan- I did try what worked for you however no success in my case.

Mykal- I did drop it off at the small enging place by my house. They stated they could look at it on Monday or Tuesday. Worst case scenerio they put in a new carb. I have seen the carb kits and am sure I could have done replaced this myself but chose to leave it in the hands of a pro.

Stfcatfish, it is with in the year from the date of purchase. However, in this case I believe it to be operator error and nothing to do with the workmanship of the unit. It started on the 1st or 2nd pull all of last year. I have to take ownership on this one and would not feel right about passing this on to the Mfg. If however the service center determines it to be a mfg error I will submit a request to have this paid by them.

Sounds like you probably have a plugged up carb to me very common when gas is left in them even if it is stabilized. I like to run stabil in mine and then run it out of gas. I think you would probably need a good carb cleaning though. Just for your information gas can go bad and start to break down with in 30 days. I found that out when I was working in a small engine shop. So keep that in mind.

iffwalleyes, thank you for the feedback. Next year I am going to empty all the gas I can from the tank and then choke the unit and run till it kills. I learned my lesson.

Did you check for spark or change the plug?
Sometimes when these small engines sit it takes a will for the pump to start working. Pull the air cleaner off, choke open and prime it with mixed gas. It should fire and run for a bit. Keep repeating this.

Its recommended to store dry or with gas treated with a stabilizer. I like storing mine with gas so I can start it up throughout the summer. Also a dry carb can oxidize, especially brass components. If you do store it dry fog the cylinder and through the carb to get some protection back into the crank. Dont forget the change the plug after you burn the fogging oil off.

Surface Tension, I like your recommedation. I will stabalize the gas like I do with other small engine toys I have at home. Keep in the basement and start her up few times to make sure all is well. I am I tested it early so I have it in time for the thicker ice.

Well this will be my 5th season with my Lazer mag plus III and all I do before I put it away is run the gas out of it and pull the spark plug and put a couple of squirts of WD-40 in her pull it over a couple of times put the plug back in. Light coat of oil on the cutting blades and in the basement she goes. Still the original spark plug. She always starts on the first or second pull.

After putting a new carb in she now runs like a top. I learned my lesson on this one. That being said the check list is complete and I am officially ready for some ice.

      Hello!)  I love playing minecraft.  From early childhood, I understood that this is just the best game, but the game became unrealistic after I installed the super mod https://99minecraft.com/mods/weee-flowers-mod-1-12-2-1-7-10/  !!!!! It will help everyone to make the game more interesting and cool.

      It seems that I have never had problems writing essays. And here it was necessary to write residency personal statement editing. I realized that it would not be possible to cope with such a document, I decided to take the help of professionals and all the problems disappeared.

      Yes, you can make good money at the casino, but I think that this is unstable earnings, and situational, if you play every day, you can get into very large debts. I was advised this casino - https://onlinecasinospill.no/ , I tried and made no mistake in choosing, there is a huge bonus system, constant promotions for any holidays and a bunch of different slots that only improve the game, also the probability of winning is quite high, I was able to earn a small amount of money, I advise you to try

      Филипп 9:29 In order to avoid unplanned expenses, you need to immediately discuss all the nuances with the contractor. In fact, there are many options. But it still seems to me that it can be done independently, even bulky things with several people can be loaded and moved on by themselves

      I agree with you, but not completely, because you can win once and bet a little more, that is, set aside 80% of the total amount, and then play for the remaining 20%, I think this is a good option, and in any case, a person will win

      As far as I know, there are several companies in Boston that are engaged in full professional relocation, it takes a little time, but they take enough money, I saw a couple of ads on the Internet about such work, you can also find performers of this order there

      For a long time I wanted to turn to a good programmer so that he would collect applications for mining for me, but I could not find it and abandoned this business, now this thought is returning. I came up with such an application that no one has, but no one can assemble it, everyone refuses. I looked at the site that you advise, quickly read it, this company made a good impression on me, I will carefully read it in the evening, then I will contact them and if they agree with my idea, I will order.
