Ryobi 725r trimmer carburetor adjustment


Turn both low and high adjustment screws carefully clockwise all the way in - do not overtighten.. Then back out each two full turns. Set the idle speed control for highest setting. Prime and start and let it run and warm up for about 15 seconds - then lower the rpms a tad and then adjust the low end screw for highest rpm. Then reset the idle to lower reasonable level. You may have to go back and forth with those two adjustments till it runs fine at low idle speed..

Then accelerate to highest speed and set the high adjustment for highest rpm. Then go from idle to high speed. If not smooth a small adjustment on the high speed screw is in order. Keep doing that until you get a nice smooth transition form low speed to high speed.

How do I adjust idle speed?


You can't adjust the idle , There is a minimum idle adjustment set at the factory , you don't want to mess with that . The PCM / ECM ,engine computer controls the idle speed by the idle air control valve (motor) . You may have a dirty throttle plate mess with the base idle .Check out this video on ford base idle adjustment . Some one who didn't know cranked up the base idle causing problems Ford IAC valve test how to adjust minimum idle speed

It idles fast if I turn the idle down it stalls running rich on top end at fast idle sometimes it will drop to a very low idle and shut off


adjust the idle mixture screws first and then adjust the idle speed screw to compensate
adjusting the idle mixture screws will alter the idle speed but when properly adjusted then adjust the idle speed screw,

How to adjust the idle speed on 1992 Dodge Ramcharger?


Its not really adjustable.
The computer controls idle speed via the idle air control valve.
You probably have a vac leak.

How to adjust the idle speed on my 1979 Aston Martin V8 Vantage


If your car is fitted with four Weber IDF carburetors, they will have to be individually adjusted for mixture and idle speed.This requires disconnecting them from the main throttle control linkage first. You must also have a Unisyn, or similar air flow measuring device to synchronize throttle plate openings at idle. It's a relative simple procedure, however not something a novice should attempt without the carb adjustment manual present. When finished with basic adjustments, the carbs must be reconnected to the main linkage where the central idle speed adjusting screw will be found. If your car is injected, idle speed should be automatically controlled by an electronic 'Idle Speed Stabilizer'. A photo of the motor, with air cleaner removed, will be helpful in determining what system you actually
have.

How do you adjust the high speed mixture screw? I have a Ryobi RLH1100a MK III 31cc line trimmer, and after changing the fuel lines, it will start but not idle more than about 3 - 5 seconds before it...


Hi montex124, I will try to help. In the past few years carb makers have been making changes. Some carbs have no adjustment at all, the ports are all fixed inside the carb. Other carbs have only the idle speed mixture screw that can be adjusted, like yours seems to have. Is this screw you mention at the top and completely outside of the carb to adjust the throttle? If it is it's probably the idle speed screw which can be adjusted to any idle speed you want and has nothing to do with the air fuel mixture but If it is right next to the idle mixture screw, it might be the high speed mixture screw but is capped so it can't be adjusted. The low and high speed mixture screws should be marked next to each screw H and L.
The 1 1/2 turns suggested is sometimes just right but other times has to be adjusted, so you can try adjusting it to get your idle but maybe adjust the idle speed screw first to get a higher RPM so it doesn't stall on you. Like I said earlier it just adjusts the throttle, and is like when you are using it, and giving it gas as they say. I hope this helps just a bit. Regards and good luck. Get back to me if you need more help or just let me know how you did. Denis.

The owners manual for my Ryobi 210 describes carburetor adjustment but the photos do not show which screw is the idle mixture adjuster.


The Low speed adjustment screw is the one marked as "L" and would be adjusted during:
1. Idle - to insure running smoothly, and
2. Acceleration - to transition from Idle to High Speed.

The High speed adjustment screw is the one marked as "H" and would be adjusted during:
1. High speed or Wide Open Throttle. Turn about 1/8 either way to gain top RPM's and then back off slightly.

The final screw is an Idle Set screw. This screw sets the actual speed of the Idle and is the screw attached to the end of the throttle cable as it terminates at the carburetor. Turning it:
1. Clockwise - increases RPM's (speeds up motor)
2. Counter Clockwise - reduces RPM's (slows down the motor)

Where is adjustment for idle located in 528


Idle speed is not adjustable, it is controlled by the fuel injection computer, even if you tried to adjust it the computer would over ride any adjustment made by you. I assure you idle speed has negligible affect on fuel consumption
