Carburator problem on Bolens 150 weedeater

I have been given a Bolens 150 weedeater that did not run. I replaced fuel lines & sparkplug. It started but did not run for more than a few seconds. I took off the carb and disassembled it and cleaned everything with carb cleaner. I have reassembled. Now when I try to prime the engine, there is no draw from the fuel tank side. I have the lines correct (fuel intake to short stem on bulb) but there is absolutely no suction on the fuel side. The bulb works because I disconnected the fuel side line, stuck the end in some fuel and the bulb draws the fuel out easily and pumps it out the return line.

SOURCE: fuel line routing help.

You should have one line (with filter) going to the carb inlet & one line going to the bulb then back to the tank.

The linefrom the tank with the filter goes to the mixture inlet on carb. The fuel return goes to the suction side of bulb. The bulb outlet line goes to the tank. Hopes this helps

SOURCE: weedeater XT 85T wont run

Check to see if your feul line is cracked or it is drawing air . Check your clamps that hold the lines on . One other thing you can check is to see if any bolts are loose that hold the carb on . Best of luck Ed.

SOURCE: lawnmower starts but won't continue to run

if you are getting no fuel to the plug you either have a stuck float, plugged fuel line or filter. does the gas reach the carb bowl? does the mower have a fuel pump? if so the diaphram might be bad.

Is getting air in gas line, will not start


If the hoses are connected right and they are in good condition, it could be bad gas,sparkplug or carburetor needs cleaned and/or a rebuild kit. Check the link below for parts:

Weedeater will not start


For a weedeater that only runs when you prime or inject fuel manually the easiest thing to try first is replacement of the fuel filter. I have had this happen several times over the years and other than a broken or cracked fuel line the filter usually is the problem. If this does not work, then work on the carburator may be needed, but the filter is an easy common problem.

New carburator doesn't passed fuel


Are you sure that that the replacement is the correct one. Also, why did you have to replace the carburetor . Did you verify that the carburetor was the problem? Did the weedeater run by priming? Did you check the pump and lines? If these methods were tried and did not reveal the problem, then I suggest that you get professional help.
