Husqvarna 223l trimmer shuts off

Had it for about fours and it ran great, till about a week ago. Its starts up fine but shuts off after about 20-30 seconds. If i prime the gas it starts and shuts off again. Cleaned plug, changed gas and oil mix.

    The four hours that you used it, was that the first time you had used it for a while?

    check your coil. If it is not functioning correctly, when the trimmer gets warm it will cause it to stop working. also check your carberator fuel to air ratio.

Starts up when choked then dies. Has a new carb and using 4 cycle fuel that is fresh. Ran great till 3 weeks ago then this.

I just went through the same problem with my Yardworks trimmer that is identical to this. If it starts when chocked after priming but stall immediately would usually indicate that there is no fuel getting to the engine. I also found that switching to non-ethanol premium fuel made all the difference in the world.

Husqvarna 223L won't start

I would first take the spark plug out and see if the tip is wet, it could very well be flooded.

second of all I'd try putting fuel directly into the carb (if this helps you'll most likely need a carb kit or maybe even a new carb)

Husqvarna 223l starts but quits before I can even get the choke off, then will not even start again. Has been great until this.

I can assure you it wont be leaking oil, as the only oil it uses is mixed with the fuel.

Lock throttle trigger on,
Start on full choke till it fires,
Switch to half choke and it should fire up on high revs,
Blip the throttle and it should turn to tick over.

If it still keeps cutting out it could point to a carb or fuel takn issue.

Bump head wears out very fast on husqvarna 223L

Are you resting the head on the floor while strimming and wearing out the bumpcap? Are you hitting it too hard on the floor when you want it to feed out.? Are you using the full harness or the strap harness when using it.? Either way it should be set the the correct length, so the strimmer is just off the floor, i like to have it so the front tilts down, that way it would keep the bumper off the floor. Either way thay should last way longer then 2 weeks so i put it down to opperator error.
