chipper shredder problems

avisk8January 19, 2013

Can someone please tell me why my 4 cycle chipper shredder keeps catching flame on the air intake of the carb when I shoot ether down the hole and why it won't start.

Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

I imagine the intake valve is sticking open due to carbon buildup or rust on the valve stem.
