Weedeater will idol but won't run - it will cut off when you try to give it gas


To begin with, let's start with the basics.
  1. Are you using fresh gas? If not, you need to get some. If there is any old gas/oil mixture in the machine, remove it by pouring it into some sort of container.
  2. If want to purchase a gas/oil mixture already mixed, a store like Home Depot or Lowes has quart cans at the correct mixures. 50:1 / 40:1 etc. and it's Leaded gasoline usually 91 octane.
Weedeaters will lose their carburetor adjustment over time because of vibration or the fuel mixtures may change. The carburetor settings are crucial for the machine to run properly.
Not all carburetors are the same, but which ever one you have, you will need a special adjusting tool to do this. You can find adjusting sets locally or here. https://www.amazon.com/HIPA-Carburetor-Adjustment-Including-21-Teeth/dp/B01FAAKN7E/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&qid=1467833656&sr=8-3&keywords=carburetor+adjusting+tool

Not To do this process, you will need to identify the 2 special

adjusting screws on the top or side of the carburetor.
The screws are highlighted as HI and LO. The HI allows fuel adjustment for the weedeater at full throttle. The LO is for the adjusting the idle.

Try these steps:
1. Adjust both screws clockwise until just seated (tight) using the correct tool (from a set similar to the one above)
2. Rotate the HI screw 1 1/2 turns counter-clockwise
3. Rotate the LO screw 1 turn counter-clockwise
4. Start the machine.
5. When it's running (spitting, coughing...) adjust the LO screw a 1/4 turn either way until you get a smooth idle.
6. Pull handle to run at full throttle. If the engine is sputtering then it's getting too much fuel....adjust the HI 1/4 turn clockwise checking to see if the engine runs smoother.
7. When you get the weedeater running smoothly, there are no further adjustments to be made. Just make sure you are using FRESH gas/oil that hasn't been sitting longer than 30 days.
Good Luck!

The carburetor is having some issues. I would go to a repair shop and see if they can adjust it for you. On certain carburetors it requires a special tool to adjust it. I believe that the Mantis Tiller has an echo engine on it. If you cannot find a local dealer for your Mantis then I would try for an Echo dealer.
I hope this helps. :)

Hello,
My name is Dane and I am going to assist you in solving your problem.

You will need to adjust the high speed setting on your Carburetor jet. Turning the screw out just 1/2 turn or so should do the trick. It is not so hard to adjust the Carburetor, however, yes you do need a special tool that is very hard to get your hands on, in order to adjust the jet screws. They don't make many engines with plain screw heads anymore. The newer Carburetors are factory set lean so they can pass emission standards. Since you just bought yours, a local husky dealer should adjust the mixture for free. I hope I've helped. If you found this reply useful, please leave me some THUMBS UP, if you feel I

What is the walbro chain saw carburetor adjustment for a


There is no set adjustment on any chain saw. If it were that simple there would be no need for adjustments. The problem is that most equipment manufactured in the past 10 years can not be adjusted by the user. Carburetors are now equipped with either adjustment limiters which limit the adjustment to less than half a turn or with adjustment screws that require a special tool to make the adjustment. More than likely you will have to take it to an authorized dealer for those adjustments.

If you do have an adjustable carburetor, then gently close both needles and open each on 1 full turn. This should allow the engine to start and the final adjustments can be made at that point. If it still will not start then open each needle 1/8 to 1/4 turn and try again. If this still does not work then most likely your carburetor needs a good cleaning and a rebuild kit.
