Title: Jonsered Cs2255 Looses aolot of power at full throtle
Post by: Logger615 on June 21, 2015, 10:53:55 AM
While cutting yesterday noticed I started loosing full throttle as I was cutting. Fully warmed up if I try to give it full throttle it bogs down and dies. I can only get to half throttle before it starts loosing power in a big way.  Any ideas?

Sounds like a fuel delivery problem. Some ideas...Fuel tank vent partially clogged - does it run better with cap loose? Fuel filter/pickup partially clogged? Fuel line hard or too soft and collapsing? Carb screen partially clogged? Carb diaphragms getting stiff? H screw too lean?

 A lot of good points above, plus check the muffler screen, clogged they will have no power.  Steve

Thanks guys, I was figuring some sort of fuel issue. Small engines have never been my strong suit didn't really know where to start, got a few things to check and rule out now!!

Is this new and did you buy it at tractor supply? Was it set up and adjusted for you? They won't run right out of the box.
