I just pulled out my Ryobi Gas Trimmer from winter storage and when starting, it will start on Full Choke, and sometimes will run on Half Choke, but when I move it to Run or pull the trigger it quits running. I put new gas and mix in it... What can this be??? Please help.. Dano

ying when i move it to run anyone who know how to fix it reply to me at email@example.com
I had problems with my trimmer not running off and on over the years. It often turn-out that it was a plugged exhaust. The first couple of times it was insects building nests in the exhaust. Latter it was that the spark arrester screen inside the muffler had a heavy carbon build-up. I broke it out with a long screwdriver. It works fine now.
Have a similiar problem with a John Deere trimme (T 105C) and was told by the dealer that it is a carburator problem and would need to be replaced. Cost of the part is $105.00 plus labor. Not worth it to pay to buy the part & have it repaired. Good luck.

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.
The gas is going into the the crankcase. When the piston goes down it opens the ports and allows the gas to go down untill it could fill the crankcase. Start by blowing compressed air into the spark plug hole and allowing the piston to go to it's lowest position. This will usually remove any liquid gas from the crankcase. Next get yourself a small spray bottle and fill it with the same gas mixture your trimmer uses. Now you can spray a small amount into the spark plug port, replace the spark plug, full choke and pull till it pops. set to half choke and pull. I have also sprayed into the carb but you must open the throttle to allow the gas to enter the combustion chamber. Spray,close throttle,pull choke and pull. You may need to do this a few times for it to start. After it starts let it run at half choke for awhile until it warms a bit then open choke and go to full throttle. If this dosen't work it's possible to have other problems.
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
Carburetor is out of adjustment. there are two carb adjustment screws on the side of the Carb. they require a special tool that is only $5 from your local mower repair dealer. those screws are the idle and Hi speed mixture adjustments. the carbs on Ryobi are set too lean. turn counterclockise to richen the mixture. just turn one eigth of a turn at a time. start w the hi speed.
