Starting problem with a Ryobi rlt30ces petrol strimmer

Hi, I recently purchased the above product from Ebay and am having problems starting it. I believe I may have put too much oil in the mix.

I have emptied the tank and put a lighter mixture in and took out the spark plug and turned it upside down and pulled the starter to clear any excess and tried everythin else but it still won't start

Any suggestions would be helpful.

Thanks
Ian

Hi
I have had the similar problem & spent a day stripping the unit down
(dismantled & re-assembled the carb, seemed OK fuel reaching & flooding the plug) I unscrewed the spark plug from the body, but left it connected to the lead and found that there was intermittent spark when pulling the cord. and tested it with a continuity meter - no signal/measurement. bought a new spark plug, meter reading showed signal/measurement, now starts every time. It may be that Ryobi has been installing rather cheap nasty plugs. So test the plug first by watching the spark when pulling cord, test with a meter, if no continuity, buy new plug....


Check also that little gauze air filter behind the roto choke is not blocked.
this solved it for me.

Please remember to give me a rating ...ta

    Excellent service! I just did my strimmer after months of not starting at all. Cleaned the filter, reset the spark gap to a little over 15 thou. ( .40mm) and Hey ho! off we go. Thanks a bundle!!!

Reset the spark plug gap, mine was at 25 thou, I reduced it to about 15 thou, and it starts every time, hot or cold.

Starting up Ryobi Petrol Strimmer


full choke on , push petrol bubble 5 times then pull starter cord., with luck it will kick in to life after a 20/30 secs put on half choke , run again for 30 secs the no ckoke.

The main problem with Ryobi products is that they flood very very easly. So the more time you try and pump petrol into the carb the more it will flood . If that happenes then choke off and switch off and then just pull starter cord for about 30 secs then switch on and it could start if not prime it again as above good luck

RLT30HT 30CC PETROL STRIMMER difficult to start


Hi,
The plug that I have in my 720r is a Champion RDJ7Y. Can I suggest that you pull the old plug out and look to see which one you have? Also when you buy the new replacement it should already be gapped for what you need.
Good luck!

Ryobi RLT 30 CES Strimmer - Won't run properl7


I'm not sure about the carb. adjustment being removed. The newer carbs. only have one dial for adjustment, not the two screws like the "old school kind".It probably needs the carb. cleaned. Disassemble the carb. and clean with carb. cleaner. Use a Den Tek Brush, (used for cleaning teeth), to clean the small portals. Make sure the small screen in carb. is free of debis. The smallest of particals can cause your problem. Reassemble and try starting. If it still acts up, buy a carb. kit for trimmer and replace the needle valve, appropriate gaskets, diaphragm, and small screen. This should solve the problem.

Ryobi rlt30ces trimmer


Hi there, takes a bit of working out without a manual, but try this....take bottom half of trimmer line spool off, get piece of spool line approx 60 cm, long and thread through centre holes, ( bit fiddly but ) pull line through until you have equal length on both sides, dont try and wind it up onto the spool, just put ends of line through outside cover holes, then lock spool in place in other half. now simply wind the knob at the end and the line should retract into the spool., sounds complicated but really isnt, best regards and good luck, Philbee

I also tried this.

  1. Clean the carb wire gauze air filter behind the roto-choke knob. (undo the nut/washers & long bolt)
  2. Deteremine if fuel is being fed to cylinder - Fully depress & prime the bulb about 7 times, turn to full choke. Pull start cord about 7 times. Remove spark plug see/smell fuel fumes/vapour present in cylinder
  3. Determine if compression is weak - remove plug, put finger over plug port, pull start cord. Should be evident of resistance/pressure build up when cord is pulled.
  4. Of course brand new plug!!! as above (I would try this first)
Hope this helps
please rate my comments - Thanks

I have one of these and I have to admit they are a bit of a bug*er to start. Following the instructions though on the sheet for trying to start it eventually should kick it off and then you should be away. I start mine by alternating between no choke and the half choke with about half a dozen pulls each. generally pull with the throttle held but try a few with it off every now and again. If you get to 10 mins without success, put it down, have a drink and a rest and go back in 30 mins and try again.
I wouldnt have thought a straight petrol mix would do it any harm though, if you had over mixed with oil then that could have been a differnt story.
