SOURCE: 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

SOURCE: Ryobi gas trimmer SS26, won't start hot

My solution is to stop buying lawn and garden equipment from the local home centers. I too made the same fatal mistake you folks made. I bought the SS26 model Ryobi weedeater used it about 3 or 4 times and it has turned to ****. I am so pissed off I will never buy any power landscape tools from home centers again. I even bought a Troybuilt gas powered hedger and I have to work on it for 3 hours in order to use it for 1 hour. I will start buying commercially available professional gas powered landscape equipment from now on. I learned my lesson the hard way, just like you. The gas was bad??!!??!... I have used oil mixed gasoline in a lot of my two stroke eqiupment for 12 months without additives and it always burns just fine. The last Ryobi weedeater I had was 15 years old before it gave up the ghost. Thats why I bought this new one. I never had to use fresh gas everytime I used it...What a joke....I say we little people ban toghether and pass the word along to everyone we know about how junky their equipment is and how unreliable the companies are in supporting thier product. The problem with the SS26 Weedeater is the carbureator (spelling) it is an inferior piece of junk...period. After 4 uses, it will only start up, as soon as I pull the gas trigger, it dies because it leans out. I checked the spark plug (another piece of ****) and it looks like the machine was running hot, The electrode was a whiteish color indicateing a lean burn condition, nt the chocolate brown I was hoping to see. I hope this helps everyone who reads this... Spend a couple hundred extra dollars and go buy something real. Stop playing with the kids toys. This is what I am going to do to resolve the problem. They don't care about us, why should we care about them....Down to the firey pits with them....

SOURCE: I can't get the red

Maybe try using a pair of channel-lock pliars or a pair of vise grip pliars on the thing. Please vote on this solution.

What is the problem? my ryobi ss26 weed trimmer gets fuel and spark &has good compression but will not start


What is the compression reading. You have to check it with a compression gauge before you can say it has good compression. Check compression with a short hose 2 cycle compression checker. Don't use one for automotive, the reading could be off by as much as 35 psi.

Hello, W/D here.

The fuel filter in the tank could be plugged, a fuel line gone bad, or the primer bulb has cracked, gotten hard, or otherwise rendered useless. It's possible that the lower chamber diaphragm in the carburetor is bad--hardened or cracked. The primer is supposed to pull fuel from the filter in the tank, into and through the carburetor, then out to the primer bulb, then back into the tank through another line. Go to: http://www.drystacked.com for a 12 page article on Walbro brand carburetors--very helpful. Hope this helps!
