    Started easily, but would die before could use. Squirted one second blast of carburetor cleaner into spark plug hole. Now not start. There is spark. New plug, gas, air and gas filters. Inject more carburetor cleaner, or is that what caused problem?

    Use a splash of two stroke mix down the carb, carburetor cleaner will wash any oil film left in the engine out and cause damage to the cylinder and bearings. I'd replace the fuel lines too.

    Carb cleaner is for the carburetor as said above you will damage the cylinder and piston. Have you changed the fuel line? Have you taken the carburetor apart?

    Tried squirt of carburetor cleaner after reading Q&A on another forum. Tried splash of fuel in spark plug hole. Would adding starter fluid to fuel tank do it? Not take carburetor apart. Hope rebuilding carburetor not necessary, as saw started fine, but would not hold idle.
