    Mine is less than 3 months old and has the same problem could it be that not enough fuel is getting to the carb when the choke is opened up? What is the best way to adjust the carb settings.

Check the fuek lines for hole and leaks, check the fuel filter and clean if necessary. remove the carbuerator and inspect the gasket; it should be soft and flexible, if it seems hard or brittle replace it. clean the carb with carb cleaner sray (available at any local auto parts store) and compressed air. make sure you get inside the small fuel rail holes. if that doesn't work have the carb repaired at a service center or replaced.

How to start


Full choke until it tries to start, half choke until it does, and once it's running, open the choke fully and wait a few seconds for it to warm up before using it, as well as 15-20 seconds to let it cool down before shutting it off so as not to warp any metal parts of the engine

Well after you clean it out and get it running make sure you dump some sta-bil into the gas tank next time it is going to sit idle for over 3 months. the gas turns into a shellac which glues up the carburetor.

Weedeater XT 85T wont run


Check to see if your feul line is cracked or it is drawing air . Check your clamps that hold the lines on . One other thing you can check is to see if any bolts are loose that hold the carb on . Best of luck Ed.

Engine run @ half choke but will not run in run position


It's starving for fuel. What is it? Sounds like the jets are plugged in the carb. or possibly water in the gas. Remove carb., disassemble, clean and put back together. You should get a rebuild kit for it first so you have new gaskets, etc. when you reassemble. It's a little more complex than I can put in words for you here.

Also empty and clean fuel tank too and start with fresh, clean fuel.
