Chipper #247799891 was sitting in the shed for about 4 years. Now it will only start if I put gas in the carb. What is the best process to fully examine this


Thank you for your question.

I am sorry you are having a problem with the chipper. To cure the problem you will need to remove the carburetor and the fuel tank. They have to be removed at the same time. Make sure to note the location of the linkage before disconnecting it. I recommend taking a picture of the linkage so you can refer to it later. Once you have the assembly apart take the carburetor off of the tank and click here to watch a video on how to clean the carburetor. If you need to order any part, you can order them from our parts website: Sears Parts Direct .

I hope this is helpful. Please let me know if you need further assistance.

If you do not feel confident repairing this problem yourself, then you can have it repaired at your home by a Sears technician. Here is a link for the website: Sears Home Services .

Thank you for using Manage my life.
