Hello sir, my machine will only start when pumping primmer bulb or squirting fluid in the carburetor than stops. the fuel line has broken off, in most small carburetors this is a ongoing problem.old fuel will crystallize when left in tank for a long time.plugging up ports, fuel lines, small screen in carburetor.fuel lines will dissolve clogging carb.this is why it will run when the choke is on creating a vacuum to where there is fuel forced in the carb to rum,also the gas will evaporate leaving the oil behind clogging up carb.the thing to do is remove carb. and clean out,replacing gaskets or fuel line if necessary.use carb cleaner to clean out carb.make sure to make note where fuel line go.the fuel filter broke off of fuel line letting debris get in carb plugging it up.the muffler is known to clog up a lot on these machines where they want run. the compression should be 60 to 120 lbs any thing below 60 is junk. when adjusting the carb screws turn in all the way than turnout 1 1/4 turns turn in slow until machine runs also you need to check for spark by removing plug and grounding against engine to check spark, ok.a new spark plug would be a good ideal too , if you are going to make these repairs use new fuel line and filter,hope this helps,any comments welcome,thank you, ~~

Petrol ratio for fs38

Hi graham
I mix my oil to gas at 50:1 for my weedtrimmer at my house and it works just fine.
50:1= 2.5 oz 2 cycle oil and 1 gallon of gasoline.
Use a high quality 2-cycle engine oil.
Do not use automotive oil or 2-cycle outboard oil.
Please rate me

What needs to be done to remove the head off of a stihl weedeater?

If you are talking about the spool and string area, remember that Stihl have left hand threads so you turn it the opposite of lefty, loosy, righty tighty. There is a small hole in the side of the head to insert a special tool that came with the weedtrimmer when you purchased it. If the tool isn't available use a small phillips or flathead screw driver to hold the gear box still while unscrewing the head counterclockwise.

String Runs Out

You are most likely keep bumping the head on the ground, causing the string to unwind. Hold weedtrimmer off the ground.

I have a Saeco Incanto RS Espresso Machine. The prime light is on, but the machine won't prime. Very little water of steam comes out of the wand.

You need to manually prime it using the priming bulb that came with it. Instructions are in the manual. Remove water tank. Fill priming bulb. Hold priming bulb on water inlet. They don't inter-connect, so just hold it on there as best you can. Turn the machine on, turn steam knob on, and gently, slowly squeeze the bulb to force water into the machine. It works best when the machine is cold, because you want to get liquid water in there, and not have it displaced by steam.
