Check the on-off switch? Try disconnecting the switch and see if it starts. If it does, replace the switch.

Poulan prolink pp335 wont start


In case anyone else hits this question, I had this weed eater and all of the attachments. I had it in my garage for a good 7 years, and it had gas in it 7 years ago.. I've known for some time that it now had no gas in it & that it wouldn't be easy to start if it worked at all.. I put some normal gas in it and dripped a bit of oil into the gas because i didn't have a can properly mixed and didn't want to oil up my lawn mower gas.. I had a guy cutting my lawn for the past 7 years but he recently disappeared..

I primed the weed eater and attempted to start it for a good 20 minutes yesterday to no joy.. I put it away and figured i'd try it again and more in depth today when I had more time. I wanted to take the spark plug out and make sure it was clean, etc.

On attempting to remove the spark plug, I couldn't find a wrench or socket that would work to do so, so I just reconnected spark plug cable and figured I'd give the pull start method another try.. I pumped more gas into the primer and attempted to start it normally a few times.. It wouldn't even attempt to fire. Just for fun since I was going to have to throw this and tons of never-been-opened attachments away, i decided to try something goofy (in my opinion) and squeezed the trigger as far as it would go (which disengages the choke feature..) and gave it a few pulls on the cord.. It attempted to fire a few times, then it fired! It worked very well although it was a little bit thick on the smoke for a bit..

Maybe this answer will help someone else who hits the problem of leaving gas in a weed eater for years.. don't use the choke feature to start it.. start it at full throttle with the primer perhaps flooded a little bit..

I have a weed eater trimmer that wont start. ben sitting for a couple years and i replaced the fuel lines andcleaned the carb. still nothing, what do i do?


Try cleaning the spark plug, make sure it sparks. Put some fresh gasoline in the tank, check start stop switch.
A easy way to check whether the problem is related to carb or not is:
remove the spark plug put some fresh gasoline in the cylinder, put the spark plug back
pull the starter a few times if it starts for a few seconds it means is related to carb.
Be carefully when handling gasoline.

Having a problem starting my Shindaiwa T22 Weed Eater.


take the spark plug out and pull the engine over with the spark plug in the wire and ground the plug to the trimmer and see if it sparks. if not flip the switch the other way and see if it sparks then you shall know.

Ryobi 33cc wont start


Assuming you still have evidence of fuel in the cylinder after carb work; and still have visible spark across the plug, I would install a new spark plug. It is fairly common for a spark plug to cease working under pressure in a cylinder while appearing ok outside of the engine.

My weedeater brand trimmer won't start


I believe you have the wrong GAS AND OIL MIXTURE. MOST WEED EATERS are a Ration of 90:1 or even less 75:1 For WEEDEATER I would use a 50:1 or if you choose 32:1 should work. Use a good 2-stroke oil. DO NOT USE ANY OTHER OIL> You see the more oil you use the harder it is to start. Don't forget to Pump the fuel Bulb on the side before trying to start it.About 3 x should do it. GOOD LUCK and it is and does effect me when their is death by a LOVED ONE. My prayers are with you! From Mddoc13 ( BOB)
