Put in new carb parts, cleaned all carb circuits, runs only a little better than before...when adjusting carb, has limits on how far you can turn it, just starts to run a little better when limited out. is there a way to reset the limits?
I have a RYobi SS30 and it will not run at all. I have pulled the cord about a hundred times, yes after about 10 I should have gotten the picture, but if anyone knows what to do to correct this I would appreciate this. I am not very mechanically inclined so any help would be appreciated

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.
Use only fresh gasoline (alcohol free if you can find it). Purchase a top quality synthetic 2 stroke oil such as Lucas, Golden Spectra and mix it exactly as the manufacture dictates. Install a new accurately gapped plug and make sure the plug wire cap (boot) is pulled back to inspect the wire to connector crimp. Start it up as you normally would to allow the new gas and oil to permiate the system and if you cannot get it to stay running without the choke being on shut it down and squirt some oil into the carburetor and pull the trimmer over, if this makes it start everytime it does not want to start and it allows you to click off of run you have either low compression (rings are worn). or your carb is yet another victim of the geniouses that thought alcohol in gas was a super idea. Either way you can replace the piston and rings or the carb. both are almost not worth the time and cost anymore, a new carb for mine is $70.00, with a new piston and ring set being around $40.00 and a brand new trimmer the same as this one on sale at $130.00 it was an easy decision to buy new.
If it is a relatively new unit it should have the carburetor adjusted after the first few hours of use. If it stalls upon accelleration the low speed adjustment on the carb needs to be opened a little bit. If it runs a few minutes and then stalls it could be the high speed jet needs to be opened or the fuel filter is clogged.
Try getting some carb and choke cleaner and spraying down the carb. You might have some varnish in the carb and it won't let the fuel flow properly. My ryobi 4 cycle trimmer does that every year. I clean the carb and it usually runs decently. Good luck roundo4
If you have to run with the choke on, it's having problems pulling gas thru the carb. Start making sure that you're using fresh gas/oil mix. Don't attempt to use last years leftover in the tank or a spare can. Bad news... won't fire well. Second, pop the carb lines off the carb and flush with carb spray cleaner (use the nozzle tube that comes with the can). Third, check for cracks, breaks, leaks in the supply and return hoses. Replace any damaged hoses. Disconnect the carb from the engine and spray all jets, orifices with carb cleaner (I like the Berryman's B-12 spray) and reinstall. Also, pull the filter out of the air filter and clean, reinstall. While you're at it, pop the spark plug out and clean the tip with carb spray as well. Finally pour in a fresh gas/oil mix...start as usual. should be alot better!
check for restricted exhaust next
some manufactuers put screens in their exhausts and they tend to plug up sometimes remove clean and put back screen.
When you removed carb. and dimantled were the rubber pieces soft and pliable? if they were not then consider a carb. kit
Be sure on the needle valve side of the carb. the diaphram side
the gasket goes first then the diaphram not the opposite. Zama or walbro the same deal
sometimes you have to dismantle the carb totally and drop it in carb. cleaner for awhile to allow to penetrate where its hard to clean and sometimes you have to replace the carb,but not always
the initial carb. setting for high and low is 1and1/4 turn and tweek from there.
Also the smallest pinhole in the fuel lines will create havoc also.
and if compression is weak or low the carb. will not work properly either.
Try these things and maybe it will help you some?
Yes, Depending on how old your trimmer is, one of two things is wrong. Either the carburetor just needs a very good cleaning, or you need to purchase a carb. kit and replace the small screen, gaskets, and needle valve. It would probably be good idea to do both if your trimmer is more than three years old and if you have never replaced parts on carb
Yes, Your carburetor sounds like it needs cleaned. Or you may possibly need to purchase a carb. kit for your trimmer if the cleaning doesn't do any good. When cleaning the carb. use a Den Tek Brush, (teeth cleaning brush), to clean the small ports. Also, check the small screen in carb. Can get clogged easily.
