I am having the same problem as everone else with the carb. I have taken it apart several times and the diaphram looks good could there be a pin hole should I just replace it . Also should I replace the needle and seat. Getting gas will only start with starting fluid and then cuts out. Would you please e-mail me a a break down on the carb unless you have some other sugg. I love this machine and it's only 7 years lod and looks new not ready to give up!
