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.

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.

Can't get my Ryobi CS30 trimmer started, bought a new spark plug, still won't start. It worked fine last summer, took it out for the first time today, won't start, has plenty of fuel


Is the fuel old or has it been drained and refilled?? Sometimes old fuel will do this. Also make sure the air filter is clean and free of oil/dirt as this will also hinder the starting.

The primer button also is something to check. Push it 7 times, full choke, pull for 5 times, turn to half choke, and the unit should start.

Let me know,

It wont start


First, make sure that the gas mixture is correct (gas and oil mixed in the right proportion). Next, press the primer bulb 3-4 times, turn the choke lever on to Full Choke, and pull the starter cord until the engine seems like to wants to start, but dies. Next, switch the choke lever to Half Choke and start the gas trimmer, giving it gas by pulling on the trigger. Once it has warmed up fully, you may be able to reduce the Half Choke to No Choke, although my 20+ years of experience with dozens and dozens of models tells me that many trimmers run better, although smoking slightly, when you keep them at Half Choke. One last tip, when pulling the cord, try pushing the trimmer away from you with the opposite hand at the exact same time that you are pulling the starter cord--the equal and opposite push-pull technique may sound like something from karate (and it is, in a way), but it is really helpful when trying to start trimmers. Best of luck, Bill

PS: Check you owner's manual (at home or online) for the proper gas/oil mixture. Empty any old gas out and replace the spark plug, if required.

Problem with gas trimmer staying started


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.
