Yes. Your carbeurator is gummed up. Get some new gasoiline and add some carbeurator cleaner to it, usually one ounce per gallon. Dump the fuel u have in there and put in the new fuel.

Also, get some spray carb. cleaner, remove the air filter and put a couple of squirts into the air intake chamber. Then start it.

Finally if it still won't start, use a squirt of starter fluid to get things going and get the carbeurator cleaning into the system.

I have a Troy-Bilt XP grass trimmer...only run on full choke, I replaced the fuel filter because there was plugged.Still no help. I ordered a new carb and replaced it and still had the same problem.


When you installed the new carb did you adjust it for your engine? Idle control, idle mixture, fast misture? Running only with choke indicates that engine is not getting enough gas routinely via the main jet.

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.

What is the fuel line size for Troy Bilt TB525CS Trimmer?


Yes, something special to know. If the new fuel line is going into the gas tank, be sure to cut a steep angle on the end of the line going into the gas tank. This will allow enough of the line to get into the tank where you will be able to grab it thru the gas fill opening with needle nose pliers and pull it thru.

Ive got a troy-bilt gas trimmer tb25cs it has always ran perfect,until now when i start it up aqnd give it gas it stops running and leaks gas


Check and clean your spark arrestor located behind a diverter plate on outside of muffler. You'll need a #25 Torx, or one slot screwdriver and wrench to take the plate off. Clean it with carb cleaner and wire brush and re-install. If this screen gets clogged, it could lead to fuel spray coming out of carb throat. Clean and re-oil the sponge filter while you're at it. Hope it helps!

Bulb stay compressed for some time - no fuel to the carb


Replace or rebuild the carb or... get a good trimmer that's not a RYOBI sold under the names of Troy Bilt, Bolens, or MTD Yard Machines. My 2 cents. :)

Troy Bilt TB 465SS Pony 4 cycle weed trimmer won't start


Sounds like you need to take the carb. apart and clean it. I like to use a Den Tek Brush, (used for cleaning teeth), to clean the small ports in carb. they work great for this job. Make sure to either clean or replace the small screen in thcarb. as well.
