jiffy ice auger repair model 30 3hp
« on: Jan 09, 2011, 04:23 PM »
has anyone had this problem ? Once I start to drill a hole I get about half way and  the auger stops on me ,but if I keep pushing in the primer and priming it it will stay running ? Looks like lack of fuel , but where and how ????

Any thoughts?

Thanks
Dave

its the carb, get a  rebuild kit for a 3 hp tecuseh engine. The ethanol in fuel does this to carborated engines, its always good to run some stabil.

I sometimes have that problem too.  What fuel ratio are you running? I was advised to run a leaner ratio than it says on the sticker to help avoid this. I do see that when I get through a few holes it runs great, maybe it just needs more time to warm up, I'm at a loss here too.

Humm I may try a new carb , where could I buy one? I have not added gas stabilizer or messed around with the mix. This happened at the end of last year as well.
Thank you for the help guys :)

try adjusting the high idle screw.  that is if you take the worm off auger and it runs fine with no load on it
 IF all else fails get a can of starting fluid and spray that in there as its running, that has solved the same problem 2 times on other equiptment for me.

I run stabil in everything gas operated. Summer and winter. Empty most of the gas out and put some Seafoam in it. Run some of this stuff through the system it will clean as it runs. Nappa has some in a metal can.

sounds stupid but mine had paint in the carb. took mine apart and cleaned it out, write down the jet settings before taking it apart, count turns in til it stops then write thoe numbers down, then count them later working backwards

Use the stabil blue ethanol treatment. you can use the regular red stabil, but it's the ethanol stuff ya want. rebuild the carb and use 93 octane gas with the ethanol treatment and you should be fine.

The diaphragm  in the bottom of the carb may need to be replaced.   Did you store it wet or dry last season?

Maybe a strange question but...  This has happened to me when i first got it... ::)

I've forgotten to release screw on the gas cap.   It runs, then dies.  Not sure how new
you are to this model.

I received a jiffy 30 for free because it wouldn't run a carb rebuild kit a new gas cap (the one on it was bent) and a new primer button later runs great. also had to sharpen the blades. I went on jiffy's web site and found a local dealer for parts into it for under $30 and cant beat it. Good luck and have heard great things about the sea foam will be putting it in mine this year.

I had the same problem as Icelunker. if the breather valve is not open on the gas cap the fuel won't get to the engine and it just dies from lack of fuel.

Before you go messing w/ carb and carb adjustments...If it's got the vent screw on the gas cap open it one turn once its started should do the trick.

good luck,
