Question about Ryobi 30 Cubic Centimeter Curved Shaft Gas Trimmer

1 Answer

My weed eater will start but when I push on throttle it dies

I have a Ryobi weedeater brand new and it starts hard but will start however when I push on the throttle it starts to die. I have carefully mixed oil with fuel and the problem remains. The only way I can get it to run is to use push the start/run lever which makes it accelerate and run a little bit better.

Your suggestions

    My Ryobi trimmer worked ok for almost a year. It was always hard to start and had to warm up a long time before it would take any throttle without dying. Now it will not take any throttle and I have to put it in the "start" position and leave it there so it will run at all. Since it is an automatic choke/start position, I just have to use it in start and not touch the throttle. Very frustrating sine this was not a cheap trimmer in the first place.

    Starts fine but when I press the gas it starts to die. Changed spark plug, gas mixture, and air filter. Still the same.

Well take the spark plug out take some WD40 and give it a shot inside the unit, remember to keep the unit level when hitting the throttle and allowing it to warm up for a few minutes before use also make sure where your choke lever is. also when starting I start it on the ground like most manuals state and leave it idle on the ground for a minute before picking it up and then when I pick it up I make sure that the gas tank is tilted towards the ground so there is no room for air to get into the filter causing and disturbance while the unit is warming up.

SOURCE: do you use mixed gas for a ryobi weed eater??

Unless it has a tag or decal on it saying it is a 4 cycle then it uses mixed gas/oil at about a 50:1 ratio. Straight gasoline will freeze the piston in the cylinder in mere minutes.

I have a Yellow Stone APW-150a pressure washer bought in 2005. The hose is cracked at the fitting that attaches to the washer. Can it be replaced or repaired?


Though I have never heard of Yellowstone appliances, I am pretty sure there is a way to get replacement parts from the company spare parts department or from other sources who sell these pressure washers. If not, try the Internet, or try the Speed shops where they sell these to people who pressure wash their cars/trucks. I am also sure there are other hoses not necessarily for the Yellowstone brand but fit perfectly well on them. Find out where they sell other brands and take your washer to them, ask them if they can sell you a hose with the right connectors to fit your washer. No salesperson can refuse to sell you a good bargain.

Talon electric chainsaw has no power, changed the fuse etc...any ideas??


talon chain saws have two control switches before they will start. One is the trigger that you pull and the other is a button or lever that has to be held in at the same time. These two controls mean that you have to have both hands clear of the chain before it works.

If it is electric it will stop every time you release the hand piece. If it is engine driven then check the throttle setting as it should unload the pump and go to idle.

My weed eater will not run with the choke setting wide open.


You may have a pinhole or crack in the small hose that runs from the fuel tank to the carburetor. If equipped with a primer it may also have a small crack or pinhole. Either case may cause the carb to suck air instead of gasoline. Other possible reasons are a plugged muffler causing too much back pressure or a partially clogged fuel filter. (The fuel filter on many weed whackers are located inside the fuel tank at the end of the fuel line.)
