Crud in carb
by: Steve

I am having the same problem. There is probably dirt within the carburetor. After cleaning my unit I am still having problems....unfortunately, the dirt may be in a small passageway.

My air compressor is having the same problem I have a 6 1/2 hp and it only runs with the Chuck, the check valve is not stuck open but I don't know what's wrong with it, do you have any ideas?

Even after it warms up?

If you ease off the choke, does it slow down below 1400RPM? - idle speed.

Is the check valve stuck open?
