Are you sure that that the replacement is the correct one. Also, why did you have to replace the carburetor . Did you verify that the carburetor was the problem? Did the weedeater run by priming? Did you check the pump and lines? If these methods were tried and did not reveal the problem, then I suggest that you get professional help.

Poulan pro weedeater will not start without starting fluid and wont accelerate after starting Once started the first time it is easy to restart and idles fine, just cant accelerate the motor without it...

Your carburator is clogged.
1st make sure you have FRESH gas.
Empty and clean the fuel tank
Remove and disassemble the carburator and soak it in fresh gas for about 15 minutes to disolve any gunk.

Using a can of small carburator cleaner ( available at Lowes, Home Depot etc.) blow out all the ports.
reassemble and refuel with clean fresh gas
The little carbs clog easily

I have a Troybilt weedeater that works great until I put the tiller attachment on. With the tiller on, it dies after a few minutes of use. Any ideas?

Hello dane. Change the fuel filter, install a new spark plug and a new air filter. Then get a can of carburator cleaner to add to your fuel. let that treated fuel run for 5 minutes and you should have your problem solved. If not, you will have to replace the carburator or rebuild it.


Thanks for choosing Fixya!

Need to know the fuel mix to a 33cc craftman weedeater

If I didn't know the mix I would start with a little more oil and adjust as I saw how it operated. Try 40:1 and work to 50:1. If you get a lot of smoke it is probably too much oil, so cut it down a little next fill. DO NOT OPERATE WITHOUT OIL. Good luck...Lee

Weedeater will not start

For a weedeater that only runs when you prime or inject fuel manually the easiest thing to try first is replacement of the fuel filter. I have had this happen several times over the years and other than a broken or cracked fuel line the filter usually is the problem. If this does not work, then work on the carburator may be needed, but the filter is an easy common problem.
