Question about Ryobi 30 Cubic Centimeter Curved Shaft Gas Trimmer

1 Answer

31 cc Straight shaft/ head won't turn when connected and running

I recently got back from oversea's and my son was using my ryobi. He said that it was working fine and now all of the sudden the trimmer head where the string is at won't turn under power. It sometimes will slightly grab and spin but when it is put under duress it starts to studder and the string winds on the head.

Ryobi plt-2543y engine runs okay but head will not


Ken it sounds like the shaft isn't going in to the spigot on the engine. Make sure that the head is on properly and that the shaft is in the spigot itself. If there has been any movement with the head creeping down slightly the shaft will no longer go into it. Try and straighten the shaft slightly to give a couple of millimeters more to the shaft.

Check the metering diaphram and check valve in the carby.The valve might be leakin and the diaphrm might be hard. do a google on the make of the carby as these are fitted with a few makes manly Zamer but. DONT use compressed air to clean or automotive type carby cleaner all will kill the valve and its not replacable..

I have a 31 cc ryobi weed eater start for about


I think a new carburetor kit and a good carburetor tune up is in order my friend. Sounds like it's starving for gas. If it bogs down after warm up when you throttle it, then yes it needs a carb tuning. The L screw is the low side screw and should be turned in lightly until it seats then back it out one and quarter turns (1 1/4). The H screw is your high speed screw. Also, turn it in lightly until it seats, then back it out approximately a 3/4 turn. With these settings the unit should start and may even stay running. Again, if it bogs when throttled, while running turn the L screw out a little more maybe only 1/16th of a turn and then try it again. If it does rev then you'll have to adjust the H screw in about a 1/16th of a turn. But make sure you only do this after the engine has warmed up.

Hope this works, good luck

Clutch removal on 31 cc weed eater


Break the engine away from the shaft on the shaft side. I think 4 bolts/screws. Once you have that open you will seethe part that goes over the shaft. To take it off, hold the part with one hand and remove a screw in the center of the part using a #15 TORX screwdriver. Take off the part and under it is the clutch. Good luck...Lee
