In the continuing saga of my first gas auger, it keeps giving me problems.
The history... Bought end of last season...Strikemaster Mag 2000. Wouldn't start when I took it out the one and only time...pull cord broke. Got it fixed.
Now, filled it up for the first and tried to start it up at home...sputtered but wouldn't run. Any time it would seem to start up, it would sputter and die within a few seconds (was on run, also tried half choke). I can keep it running if I immediately push on the throttle after it turns over and keep it throttled, but every time I let go of the throttle, it dies and continues with the same problem. Tried this over several days with the same results.
Any ideas or suggestions? I know it's still under warranty so I will call strikemaster tomorrow, but wanted to see if anyone else ever had a problem like this. Thanks for any help you can give me.
