SOURCE: Ryobi Electric string trimmer

TJ, I've had the same problem since yesterday and I found the solution (lots of googling - that's how I found your post BTW).
It turned out that the switch malfunction is a common problem.

The part number for the FA3-4 switch is:

ut41002a-36 ("switch assembly")

Available here (thru Amazon):
http://factorylawnandgarden.com/product/553902/B000PLVCX8/SWITCH_ASSEMBLY_UT41002A_36/

It's a Homelite part, which is identical to Ryobi.

Here is the manual showing it (part 6):

Here is the thread with the solution:

HTH,

SOURCE: how do I wind trimmer line on double spoools for ryobi

Okay, so the good news is that YOU are probably not stupid. If you have a Ryobi trimmer like I do, it might have taken you a while to figure out the "secret" on how to rewind the line. If you only had to learn the lesson once, you are smarter than I am. (I'm leaving myself a note for next time).

If you wind the line the wrong way, you go through line really fast until it clogs up inside the bump head and you are forced to try again. The trimmer has an arrow on the spool for the direction to re-wind the line. Think of it this way, TURN THE SPOOL IN THE DIRECTION OF THE ARROW! Don't do what I did and rewind the line in the direction of the arrow, that would be wrong.

Whether this is a "mistake", a way to sell more trimmers/parts/line, or simply bad tranlation from Japanese to Engrish, it really doesn't matter. You don't need to buy anything with the exception of new line.

Good Ruck,

Mark

How do I fix the starter cord on the Ryobi BP42?


The process is much more involved than most but you will find some very good step-by-step video instructions on YouTube.

Very few tools are needed but quite a bit of patience will be needed and an area to work in where the parts can be laid out in a systematic way so reassenbly will be easier.

Good luck!

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

I have a 2 year old Ryobi RY34440 String trimmer, 30cc. Last year worked fine, this year pull cord is so easy to pull it doesn't even turn engine over. Is is the spark plug?


Either the pull starter is not pulling or you are not getting compression. To check you need to check the spark plug is still snug. If so, remove the plug and put a drinking straw in the hole to touch the piston. Slowly pull the starter to see if the piston is moving. If the piston is moving and the plug was snug then you are losing compression somewhere, like a head gasket. If not moving then the problem most likely is in the starter, and disassembly required to investigate.

If really helpful, please rate.

Ryobi line trimmer cord won't retract. We have been told needs new spring, no parts? what can we do


They sell starter springs for Ryobi recoil units right here on the internet. Why do you say...no parts? Are you in Austrailia? Go on this site and enter the model of the trimmer to observe the parts available for it. If you don't like the price, at least you'll have an idea of the part number and pricing too.

I want to access the pull cord reel on a Ryobi trimmer PLT 3043YE


This appears to be a model only sold in the UK but it looks like the standard, Ryobi,Homelite,Toro, trimmers we have in the states. You have to remove the 4 screws that hold the motor to the shaft to access the recoil starter. Once apart it will become evident how to remove the starter parts. Hope this helps.

Ryobi 790r trimmer has low power and stalls


Maybe a quick fix and maybe not
check your muffler the factory puts a spark arrestor screen that tends to plug after awhile
there is a little plate on the side muffler that needs to be removed to access the screen you may need a torx bit or allen wrench to remove
you may have to remove the back half of the plastic cover to access the screws
remove screen and clean with carb. cleaner or equivalent make sure you can see through it and reverse the procedure to put it back
