    Cranking too much with the choke on. That will flood an engine every time.

    Other than that, if the carb isn't leaking gas into the venturi with the engine just sitting there, there is no special way it can flood all by itself.

    The plug that comes with them is junk under the best of circumstances. Have you changed that to a CM-6 yet?

    Have you checked that you are getting a spark? As Ahicks said, make sure you throw the dle plug away and use an ngk. I don't know why the **** they make a nice motor then put a crap plug in the box.
    If you are using a kill switch make sure it's hooked up properly, maybe take it out to see if that's the problem.
    Also make sure you are useing the correct battery (fully charged) a 4.8v nimh/nicad is fine for the task.
    Maybe try an electric starter if you haven't already.
    Once running get your needles set and it should flip start easily.
    If you can't start it easily there is something wrong with the setup or components.
    To check the ignition and hall sensor is fine go to the gas engines sticky, Jedijody has a tutorial of how to test it.
    Let us know how you go.

    RE: DLE 20 Flooded

    I had this issue with my first one and it turned out to be a small piece of metal stuck under the float needle. It seems the Chinese don't believe cleanliness is next to godliness
    If what you believed to be true was false would you want to know the truth?
