Hi Esh Weizman
Sounds like you have the fuel lines reversed going to and from the primer bulb.
I will put a picture up for you to see the routing of the fuel lines
Please take time to rate me

SOURCE: Gas does not go through the primer bulb

Unless you had the fuel lines off or replaced them, leave them where they are. The problem most likely is in your carb. The diaphragms are possibly brittle or the needle is stuck from varnish from old gas. The easiest solution is to replace the carb.

Line from tank with the filter on it is the supply line and goes to the carb inlet fitting. This is typically on the "bottom" of the carb (with the tank being up) and will usually have a fitting with barbs or a bulge on it to ensure a tight fit. The other fitting on the carb is the return line and is usually a straight tube fitting with no barbs. That line goes the suction side of the primer bulb. The third line goes from the outlet of the primer bulb to the return barb fitting in the bottom of the tank. Fittings have to be removed from tank to properly install the new hoses on them. Remove retainer ring on outide of tank and push fittings into tank, then shake out of the fill opening. More details on replacing hoses are listed in another post about Repairing Ryobi trimmer.

Have you checked the spark plug?

Yes, you are right. The larger line goes to the primer bulb and only goes into the tank about an inch. The coupling just keeps the line from pulling out of the tank. The smaller line goes to the carb. This line must rest comfortably on the bottom of the tank with the filter attached to the end.

SOURCE: My weedeater lawn edger wont start. I get no gas

There may be a malfunction in the check valves in the primer base assembly. Before attempting to get a new assembly, take the retaining screws at the bulb off, remove the bulb and spray the assembly liberally with WD-40 or an equivalent light lubricant. Sometimes this will free the check valves as they only let fuel flow one way and there are 2 of them in the primer base.
Do not use strong solvents, do not ever soak, and never use high PSI compressed air on these carbs. Sometimes, when the check valves in the primer base go bad, the carb floods and the reason is unclear. Zama doesn't list this as a reason for their carbs flooding, but they can. You may wish to view a parts breakdown list for your specific carb. You will need to know the type (stamped in side of carb body) and the model (stenciled in side of carb body). It will be something like a C1U type and a W-18A mode...thus its a C1U-W18A Zama carb. Here is a link to get you started.

Stihl fs 86


I am a Stihl mechanic. We tell all our customers that the proper starting procedure for a Stihl is as follows. Turn on the switch. Set the choke lever to full choke. Prime the primer bulb three times(if it has one) and pull the pull rope NO MORE THAN THREE TIMES with the choke on. If the unit has not tried to start after the third pull, open the choke lever and pull till it starts. Sthil carburetors are notorious for flooding after pulling the rope more than three times on choke.

Thanks;
George

Can't start new stihl weedeater fs 45


The Stihl FS45 has a particular way of getting started as do all the stihl products. We sell Stihl equipment in our store and service and repair them also. The normal starting procedure is to:
Be sure the switch is turned to the ON position which is the negitive sign (-). The (O) is the off position.
Press the primer bulb 3 times.
Move the choke lever to on.
Pull the starter cord three times only. If the engine fires, turn the choke to the off position and pull till it starts.
If the engine did not try to start during the first three pulls with the choke on, you must turn the choke off and pull till it starts.
Remember:Pulling more than three times with the choke switch on will flood the carburator on every stihl product thats on the market.
However, if the units still refuses to start, being its new and still under warrenty, return it to the repair shop that services Stihl products and they will repair it according to warrenty. All parts and labor should be honored at no cost to you. Please provide your receipt and serial number located on a silver tag located on the unit or the mechanic will get it off the unit when he works on it. Either way, it will most likely have to have a new carburator put on it. I hope this helps. Please comment back if this was helpful. Thanks; George
