Question about Ryobi 15" Electric Factory Reconditioned Trimmer (ZRRY41002) - Factory Reconditioned
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.
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

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.
