I have a flymo 430 petrol strimmer and cannot start it. ive cleaned the filter, put in new plug it went first time and then stopped and wont start again the plug seems to get wet all the time any ideas
Hi. I've been looking online and there's no information about this model. However this is how to tell which fuel it uses. If it has a spark-plug it burns petrol. Diesel engines don't have spark-plugs they use glow plugs which are different. Spark-plugs have a spark gap which the spark jumps across while glow plugs do not.
If it has a separate place for putting oil, and a dipstick for checking the oil level, then the fuel is petrol only. If it doesn't have a place for oil then the fuel is petrol mixed with 2 stroke oil. I hope this answers your question.
first check the spark plugs if there is any spark when u try to start the engine...if there is none, then test the wiring without the spark plug and see if there is any spark...now if this does not solve then check the carb and also make sure there is petrol in it and petrol is flowing to the carb freely..If that does not solve then let us know and I will explain further as there is more complicated things that need to be checked and I cannot assist in a simple message.
