The fuel rails inside the carb could be clogged, try cleaning with carb cleaner and blowing out the rails with compressed air. or the car may need replaced.

Only runs good on half choke - will not take gas on open choke.

sounds like a carb problem for sure the diaphragm in the carb has hole in it or the jets are clogged forcing it pull fuel at half choke and not fully open also make sure your gas lines are clear and free of trash but i would put a kit in the carb for sure.hope this helps.

My weed eater will run with the full choke but want in half choke or run mode.

There may be a filter clogged.Check the gas tank for a filter on the gas line in the tank.Also inside the carb is a very small screen.Inspect the gas line and the primer bulb for small leaks.It may be hard to find but the oly reasons for it to act this way is restricted fuel flo or air getting in the fuel system.

How to remove the carburator from the Ryobi SS30 weed eater, model number RY30240, to overhaul? The weed eater starts find, but when you...

It may just need a G & D kit installed. That is a gasket and diaghragm. Just take the 4 Torx screws out of the rear cover and remove it. You will then be looking at the choke plate assembly which has 2 long screws that go through the housing of the carb and screw into the rear crankcase cover/reed valve assembly. Pull the 2 fuel lines off (noting where they went) and you'll have it. Once you have the carb off, you can get the manufacturer and model # off of it and order a kit. The G&D kit will probably fix what ails it or you can go for a complete rebuild and get a rebuild kit. If the carb is a Zama or Walbro, they sell the kits on Ebay.If the carb has brittle diaghrams inside, replace them; if they are still soft and pliable, then you may only need to clean the carb real well and adjust the H and L mixture screws. They will be plainly marked, but are difficult to remove. Post back for more help!

Weed Eater Problems

If it runs with the choke closed then it's not getting enough gas. Check the gas filter on the end of the gas line in the gas tank. Remove the gas cap and using a piece of wire with a hook on the end, reach in the tank and pull the gas line out through the opening. Check the filter on the end of it. You could also have a burst-ed diaphragm in the carburetor. This sucks the gas from the tank to the carb. If that's the case a new weed eater may be in order unless you can find someone with the parts to repair it. Also check the gas lines for leaks or breaks, 2 of them.

25cc weed eater, will only idle

double check your carb as it should have a screw for the fuel mixture. some carbs have a plastic piece over them that only lets you move the screws so far if you need more extreme adjustment they pull out about a 1/8th of a inch then you can turn in then push it back in, same principals as making a flame on a bic lighter bigger, if you cant find it take some pics of your carb and email them to me @ and i will point them out
