SOURCE: weed eater bogs down

Under what conditions does it bog down? When it just idles? Cold or hot? When you give it gas? When you try to cut?

SOURCE: Tryingto replace my troy built weed eater's head

clean grass off between shaft and the top of the head. hold weed eater still and turn the head, looking between the shaft and the top of the head. There will be what looks like a hole. Place something there that will keep the shaft from turning, then twist the head off.

Starting procedure


Terry: According to eHow.com:

"
  • Put on a pair of safety glasses. Remove the fuel cap from the Weed Eater and set it aside. Fill the fuel tank with unleaded gasoline that has been mixed with quality 2-stroke oil in a 40:1 ratio. Replace the fuel cap.
  • Move the Weed Eater to a safe place and lay it flat on the ground. Depress the fuel bulb located beneath the carburetor approximately six times to prime the engine. Press it slowly so that fuel has adequate time to traverse the fuel line.
  • Slide the handlebar-mounted engine "On/Stop" switch to the "On" position. Slide the choke lever beneath the fuel tank to the "Full" position.
  • Depress the "Throttle Lock" lever located beside the engine "On/Stop" switch. Keeping the lever depressed, squeeze the throttle trigger. Release the throttle lock. This sequence holds the trigger in the depressed position, which aids in starting the Weed Eater.
  • Roll the Weed Eater so that it is resting on the engine and the trimmer head shield only. This will allow the spinning trimmer head to avoid contact with the ground. Brace the Weed Eater by holding it to the ground with one hand. Using your other hand, pull the starter rope quickly until the engine begins to run. Do not pull the rope more than a dozen times. If it fails to start by then, squeeze the throttle trigger and continue to pull until the engine starts.
  • Allow the Weed Eater to warm up for about 15 seconds, then slide the choke lever to the "Off" position. Let the trimmer run for another minute without touching the throttle lever. After the Weed Eater has warmed up, squeeze the throttle trigger once to disengage the throttle lock. The trimmer is now operational.

    Why won't my McColluch weed eater create a vacuum


    Did you check the muffler exhaust or spark arrester, to see if it is clogged from using to rich a oil/gas mixture ? Did you replace the diaphragm in correct position ? Find a new carb online, possibly ebay ?

    Mcculloch trimmac 250sl the spool at the end of the grass trimmer does not spin although everything else works fine. I think it's the angle gear that's broken but I don't know how to get to it....


    on top of the head there is a star shaped bolt(middle of the head), remove bolt and rotate the spool you should see the gear turn, to remove the head from the shaft remove bolt/screw on the side of the shaft towards the top of the head, remove head and inspect the shaft, this should rotate when you pull to start the weed eater, if it does not then you will need to remove the top portion of the weed eater and inspect to see if the shaft is broken or not seeded inside the motor. Hope this helped Tim

    I have weed eater model FX26SC it starts and when I put it to run the weed eater doesn't spin but is running


    Either the clutch is worn out or the flexible drive shaft is broken. Either repair is likely to cost almost as much as a new unit.

    Ryobi weed eater head won't spin


    Sounds like the clutch has taken a long trip south. If the clutch pads are not wore out, try some wd40 on the pad hinges.
