    Question:
    I have a FT900 tiller and I can't get it to start. It has set up for about a month with stabilizer in the gas. I made sure the plug was clean, but seems like its not getting any fire/pop to want to start. Suggestions?
    Details:

     Only used for about 10 hours total.

    Hi Matthew

    Thanks for contacting the Answer Army to post your questions.

    If the unit has been setting for a period of time the carburetor can become clogged. I would recommend removing the air filter. Spray carburetor cleaner into the throat of the carburetor, allow it to set for about 15-20 minutes. Spray another blast of carburetor cleaner in the carburetor throat, install the air filter and try to start the unit.

    BEFORE you start, dump the old fuel and refill the tiller with Premium fuel. This should get the unit started.

     

    Thanks again from the Husqvarna Technical Services Team
