Ryobi model RCT2800B grass strimmer will not start

I would be most grateful if you could help me with this problem please. My Ryobi line strimmer is about 6 years old and has always been difficult to start. Now it will not start - the engine cylinder floods with fuel with only a couple of pulls of the starting rope: even with the choke OFF. When I remove the spark plug it is full of fuel.

Many many thanks

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

How can i strimmer wire on a ryobi plt 3043ye


Hi alice louise
Try this method

1 Press the lock and rotate the spool counter-clockwise or some will remove the center knob.
2 Remove the locking ring if your weed eater has one.
3 Take off the automatic feed button.
4 Wipe away any dirt and debris.
5 Push down on the spool to release the locking tabs.
6 Remove the spool from the chamber.

Restringing the Weed Eater
1 Feed one end of the line into one of the holes of the spool, and secure the end that was inserted
2 Wrap the line in the direction of the arrows. Do this until until you fill the spool up with line.
3 Secure each of the lines into its own upper and lower grooves.
4 Re-install the spool into the chamber from which it was removed.
5 Pass the lines into the left and right holes and snap the spool into place.
6 Once the spool is in its sleeve and fed into its left and right eye holes, pull both ends simultaneously.
7 Reinstall the locking ring if necessary, reinstall the center knob.

My ryobi cs30 gas trimmer (3 years old) has been difficult to start this year, has been getting worse all year and now wont start. What's up?


Most likely it is the spark plug, but could be a dirty fuel system. I'd start with the spark plug then go from there. you can also use a good quality fuel injector cleaner in your gas to help keep all your small engine carbs clean. If the problem persists there is a fuel filter inside the gas tank that plugs onto the end of the fuel pick up line that could be clogged. Worst case a carb kit can be gotten for them for about $20 bucks. Hope this helps. Please vote yes, thank you.

I have a makita backpack petrol strimmer fitted with a line head can i fit a brushcutter blade instead i donot have the full model No it is a 41cc engine it is an early model


Hi Doug,

There are adapters for just about every combination of trimmer, brush cutter blade, grass gator, etc. you can think of.

One of the most handy purchases has been a non specific arbor adapter set. Not only does it have 2or 3 each of the most common nuts in both left and right hand thread, it has inserts that keep every blade, flail and brushcutter I've tried dead center.

It even came with a diamond shaped one for a skillsaw blade that I tried with my Ryobi 4 cycle. That thing turns thorny blackberry vines to powder.

So the answer is yes.

Best regards
