How to restart again once it has been turned out and sit for a while. do I have to push the primer bulb to get it started again?


Depending on what your manual recommends. Generally if its been sitting longer than 30 minutes then use the primer.. If Less ten just use the normal cold start choke procedure without priming. But if you have the manual then check it.. It may state otherwise either way its not going to damage the saw.

Replaced fuel lines and primer bulb ON A BOLENS LB 160 25 cc TRIMMER. Primer bulb stays in and wont pop out. it pops out after abouot 3 minutes or if I loosen the primer bulb mounting screws


Check the carburetor internal filter screen for clogging. Also the primer assembly itself maybe bad. If the primer assembly itself is bad a new carburetor is in order.

The primer button on my featherlite weed eater needs replacing. How do I do this?


On your machine, it is easy. Remove the 2 large philips-head screws holding the bulb retaining ring. They are located on top, on either side of the bulb. Pull the ring off. Then, just pull the bulb out, replace it, making sure it is in the groove in the primer base assembly correctly. Then just re-install the retaining ring with the 2 screws. Don't overtighten these screws as they are going into softer metal. That is it!

I fixed one featherlite trimmer by replacing the feul lines but the other one starts running after being primed by the bulb and will run for 3 seconds or so and quit. Any suggestions for what to try next?


  • Alow the engine to run for longer on the start setting before you switch to run (choke turned off)
  • Ensure air filter is clean. Foam elements can be washed with hot water and detergent, squeezed dry in a cloth, and then rub about half a teaspoon of oil evenly through the foam. Paper elements can be cleaned with compressed air blown from the inside of the filter but ideally should be replaced.
  • Check fuel lines aren't kinked or blocked restricting fuel flow.
  • Ensure fuel filter isn't dirty. This is probably located at the end of the fuel line in the tank.
  • The fuel lines may have become airlocked.This can happen if the tank is run dry. If the trimmer has a primer bulb, alternatively press it several times and then try to pull start the engine with choke on. Repeat this several times. The primer bulb should feel spongy and fill with fuel.Once the engine kicks, switch to run
Ensure the choke is turning off ok when you rev the machine (automatic turn off choke)

A relative has a weed eater featherlite 20c and thr primer bulb doesnt keep gas in it,is it supposed to?and if so what is the cause?And it want stay running unless u keep it running wide open.Why is that?


The machine is having a fuel delivery issue The purge/primer bulb PULLS fuel from the fuel tank, thru the carb and then to itself it pull any air/old fuel in the carb...and the PUSHES this mixture back to the fuel tank. There are check valves in carbs that have the bulb on them..Deteriorated fuel lines clog a screen in the carb and the ethanol in the gas works to deteriorate the fuel pump and metering diaghram in these carbs...You have to start at the tank with the fuel filter and go from there.
I'd say from the running symptons that a diaghram kit is needed for the carb...they are cheap and easily installed.
