I have a Ryobi S430 4 stroke Weed Eater Trimmer. How many times do i pump the choke (primer) to start cold?


Page 4 and 14 of the manual. A choke is just a device that reduces air flow to the carburetor by closing a flap. You don't pump it, you just move it to the full choke position. I think you may be confusing the 'primer bulb' which pumps fuel from the tank to the carburetor.

http://lawnandgarden.manualsonline.com/manuals/mfg/ryobi/s430_ry34441.html

To start a cold engine:
? Slowly press the primer bulb 10 times.
NOTE: After the 7th press, fuel should be visible in the primer bulb. If it is not, continue to press the primer until you see fuel in the bulb.
? Set the choke lever to FULL CHOKE position.
? With the throttle trigger at idle, pull the starter handle sharply until the engine attempts to run. Do not pull the starter handle more than 4 times.
? Set the choke lever to HALF CHOKE position.

Gas Trimmer will not stay started


Many times with a gas mix, after sitting for a while, the mix separates and gums up the carb. Taking the carb off and soaking it overnight in a parts or carb cleaner and running carb cleaner through the tank and gas lines will cure this.

Mitox 28lhr long hedge trimmer does not start properly. It takes at least 50 pulls of the start cord before it starts. I've changed the spark plug but to no avail. Any advice on how to help it start


  1. Switch machine to On position.
  2. Switch choke to full.
  3. Pump the primer bulb 5 or 6 times to prime the carb.
  4. Lock the throttle on with the throttle switch.
  5. Pull over until engine fires. (it may only be a quick pop)
  6. Switch to half choke.
  7. Pull over until engine starts and runs.

    Also check the air filter is clean and the fuel filter is good.

    I've added a link to the manual incase you didn't have it. Page 30.

How to start a Stihyl gas trimmer?


here are the steps to starting most stihl trimmers:

#1 turn the choke on (should be a little black knob or an orange switch on the engine itself)
#2 press the primer bulb 3-4 times (should be a little plastic/rubber bubble again on the engine)
#3 put trimmer on ground or bench (I find ground works best)
#4 pull the pull cord fast and hard away from the engine
#5 once it starts turn the choke back off

It should start easily, start with fresh fuel/oil, pump the primer as many times as it takes to 3/4 fill the bulb, pull the choke fully out, crank the engine until it fires once, push the choke fully in and crank again until it fires up, after re fueling a warm engine, pump the primer again until it 3/4 fills the bulb,before cranking the engine pull the choke fully out and in again( this will engage the part throttle ) then crank the engine until it fires up.

Wont start what is spark plug gap whatelse bulb full,new,gas in it,lines hooked


These are bad about flooding with the least amount of trying to. I usually can get mine started by letting it sit for 5-10 min. push the bulb 3-4 times hold the trigger and push the choke on full with 3/4 speed set. Pull 1x. Don't worry usually it won't start on this setting, it really just helps get the choke and carb set. Put choke back 1/2 way and try to start, if so, gas the trigger a couple of times but not holding in down. If it don't start put the choke on full again and try to start without holding the trigger. It should start after this. Take the plug out replace the coil wire onto plug and pull the cord gently to see if you're getting spark at the plug. Holding the coil boot to prevent it giving a small jolt.

Starting problems . never used it before just need simple instruction


  1. Fill the tank with fresh properly mixed fuel.
  2. If equipped turn the switch to RUN or ON
  3. Make sure the tank is full of fresh fuel mixed per directions.
  4. pump the primer bulb until resistance is felt and fuel is seen pulsing through the lines without bubbles.
  5. pull the cord sharply and repeatedly until the motor "hits" on one of the pulls
  6. set the choke half closed
  7. pull the cord sharply until the motor fires and idles.
  8. allow the engine to idle until it will warms up and will idle when you slide the choke all the way open.

It wont start


First, make sure that the gas mixture is correct (gas and oil mixed in the right proportion). Next, press the primer bulb 3-4 times, turn the choke lever on to Full Choke, and pull the starter cord until the engine seems like to wants to start, but dies. Next, switch the choke lever to Half Choke and start the gas trimmer, giving it gas by pulling on the trigger. Once it has warmed up fully, you may be able to reduce the Half Choke to No Choke, although my 20+ years of experience with dozens and dozens of models tells me that many trimmers run better, although smoking slightly, when you keep them at Half Choke. One last tip, when pulling the cord, try pushing the trimmer away from you with the opposite hand at the exact same time that you are pulling the starter cord--the equal and opposite push-pull technique may sound like something from karate (and it is, in a way), but it is really helpful when trying to start trimmers. Best of luck, Bill

PS: Check you owner's manual (at home or online) for the proper gas/oil mixture. Empty any old gas out and replace the spark plug, if required.
