Take off the air cleaner and squirt gas in the carb. If it fires it is not getting gas from the tank. If it does not fire pull the spark plug and squirt a little gas in the cylinder. Replace the plug and try starting it. If it fires it is not getting gas from the carb.

I have a Troy weekwacker, and after sitting this winter, it WILL not stay running. The only way to even get it to start is to load the thing with starting fluid, and then it only runs til it eats up all...


Have you changed the spark plug on this unit? If all else has failed, this is more then likely the problem. Please let me no if it takes care of the problem.

Could be a faulty kill switch not allowing it to start, sounds like you covered all the things I would check.

Check for a spark. If none, then the coil is bad. Replace it. That should solve your problem.

Gas powered ryobi trimmer will not start


Hi
I found that the plug that came with my unit had an intermittent fault (sparked sometimes, then not all) definately the plug in my case. And yet at first, seemed to start OK, progressively got worse.

OK so youve changed the plug! Now check for spark....Can you see the spark if you pull the cord a few times
(you have to unscrew the plug from the head but leave it connected to lead & rest the plug against the metal cylinder surface using a pair of pliers to steady it and so you dont get a small shock)

If youre getting visable spark when you pull the cord, suspect fuel feed blockage from carb, Test by: Prime the bulb & turn to full choke, pul the start cord, Is there petrol vapour/odour present within the cylinder with the spark plug removed.

Check also gauze air filter behind the roto choke knob is clear, on/off switch (could be damp wd40) Test compression put your finger over the open plug port, plug starter cord, should be a little pressure build up

Hope this helps
please rate my comments - thanks
