Hi All
Having problems staring when cold, takes 7 or 8 cranks with the electric or manual start.
I leave the tank full with stabilizer and run the machine before its stored and have also replaced the spark plug.
I use Shell V Power for fuel.
The machine starts one pull after initial start.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks Dave

“7-8 cranks” is a bit vague as well, 7 pulls of the starter rope? 7 seconds cranking with the electric start?

Do you have the throttle set to full and choke before starting? Should be 2 pulls tops. Fuel contamination is possible if it’s still last years gas in the tank.

Fuel Stabilizer is good not great. High potential for old weak gas or water contamination.
