Question about Garden
The petrol strimmer's engine is fine, when started the end slowly rotates but when the power is applied there is no change, the rotation does not increase, I was wonding if this is a clutch problem or something, what is the best way to fix it. Thank you.
If your petrol has been sitting in the machine for a long time then yes it is your petrol. Mix a new batch usually you cannot let that sit around for more than 30 days, I always try to use fresh mixes, usually that means making smaller batches unless you use your trimmer quite a bit, most people do not though and that's when problems arise.

If you need to clean the filter, remove it from the fuel tank and blow compressed air into it, otherwise you may have to do the following:
Sounds like you will need to clean your carburetor
Sometimes you can get by with priming it a few times, and letting it
run a few times like that and it will flush the gunk out of the jets,
but most of the time you will need to rebuild the carburetor.
If the mower is over a couple years old, then I also recommend that you
buy and install a new carburetor repair kit, because the diaphragm will
get hard and that will cause it to be hard to crank.
When you clean your carburetor and remove the jet screws, count the
number of turns it takes to seat the jets from their original position.
That way when you go to put the jets back in, you know how many turns
they were in/out.
Please do not forget to rate me, Thanks
Good Luck, I hope this helped
