Sounds to me like a low float. A carb runs primary off the amount of gas in the float. I recommend to check float to ensue it is clean and adjusted properly. before adjusting the idle. A half choke increases vacuum pressure which pulls in more fuel through the throat. If black smoke is not coming coming out of the exhaust, it is most likely needing that extra gas.

I have a Ryobi 780r that won't run unless it is on choke. The moment I remove the switch from choke to run it shuts off.


This means you have an air leak somewhere adding more air than fuel with the choke off. With the choke on it blocks off the fresh air coming in and mixes with the maverick air from the air leak. You need to find the leak and fix it or you may damage the unit

Gas Trimmer will not stay started


Many times with a gas mix, after sitting for a while, the mix separates and gums up the carb. Taking the carb off and soaking it overnight in a parts or carb cleaner and running carb cleaner through the tank and gas lines will cure this.

Not Staying Started


I can't tell you how many pieces of small equipment I have been given for free because it "just won't start" or "won't stay running". Start by draining the tank and cleaning it out - use a good carb cleaner. It only takes a grain of sand to create a problem. You may have to take the carb apart and clean that out too.
