Are you taking the choke off after it starts?

    Sounds like the carb. is not adjusted correctly. I don't know how common it is for a brand new trimmer not to be set properly at the factory, but maybe it was Friday around quitt'in time when your trimmer rolled off the line. Is the carb. adjustable?

    It definitely sounds like a carburetor problem. Although, I was at Wal-Mart last weekend and there was a trimmer hanging up on display. I was looking at it and noticed that a piece of the carb. was missing. It was the cover on the diaphragm side. Is that possible with yours? I'm sure the employees of the store assembled the trimmers that are already put together.

    Did you find out if all the parts were there or not?

Yep...I too just bought the p1500 from Amazon (got a full refund and was told to dispose of trimmer) and have the exact same problem, it starts, I even let it warm up for a while, then press the throttle lever and it bogs and wants to die. Well we know that is why it was so cheap. I liked it because it was small and ligh weight. I was told to take it to the nearest dealer (with receipt) to have it fixed for free...but the dealer laughed and asked, who said that they would do it free! So Now I will screw with it and see what I can do. If I get it working properly, I will let you know what I did....If you don't hear from me again, that means I tossed it in the garbage and bought a real one.

Poulan p1500 starts and runs fine until I try to trim the grass, then it dies. What is the problem and how can I fix it.


Rick it sounds like too much fuel is getting through. Clean the air filter first and then try adjusting the jet screws beside the throttle cable near the carb.

Poulan25cc 16 inch how do i rewind trimmer line on my poulan 1500 gas trimmer


You should wind it on the spool the opposite direction that it spins while operating it. If you wind it in the same direction as the spin, the line will come off the spool when in operation.

A carburetor adjustment of the L screw on the bottom front of the carburetor (it is recessed and is nest to the H screw) may be needed. The L mixture screw is the one closest to the engine. There is a larger Philips head screw that goes against the throttle lever plate and adjusts IDLE SPEED. An adjustment to this raises or lowers the idle rate. Try it first, then the L screw next. The carb may also be due for a gasket and diaphragm kit to be installed (they ALL do at some point) as the ethanol-laced fuel hastens the demise of sensitive internal carb parts. You will need a special tool to turn the L or H screws as the heads are splined (not slotted or Phillips or Torx).

Try cleaning your carb and even buying a rebuild kit. I do not think you have a blockage. Does it even try to start? Cleaning the carb will give you a chance to get rid of any debris or old gummed up fuel and oil that may be in there, give it a try. Good Luck...

My sst25 starts hard and stalls...seems to be sensitive to engine position before stalling...stalls when throttle is opened and when just runnung


Had the same problem with my SST25 and after looking further, noticed something rattling around in the fuel tank. The fuel filter had fallen off of the small fuel line (actually the small fuel line had broken). Removed filter from tank and small piece of broken line from filter connector, and re-connected to small fuel line.

Weed eater will not run in high speed but will idle


Lack of fuel is my first thought. Check to be sure the trigger control is working at the carb. From there I would suspect plugged fuel line or plugged carb, (most likely contaminated fuel) either way I would suggest someone that knows about these. Hope this helps

String trimmer, fuel lines disintegrated, I need routing.


The Walbro has two connections on it for the fuel line. My Walbro has one connection on the side of the idle screw and main fuel adjusting screw. This connection hooks up to the suction side of the primer bulb. Usually the shorter stem. (You actually **** fuel through the carb instead of pushing it through.) On the other side of the carb is the other hook up. It draws fuel from the tank. This line will connect to the side of the tank that has the filter. The other side of the tank is your return and it hooks to the other connection on the primer bulb. Usually the longer stem.

Starts and idles but dies when i pull the throttle.


Either clogged or needs cleaning/ rebuild. ITS SIMPLE! ok If you have a Walbro WT series carb "without" a built on primer bulb here it is. First off if the fuel lines disintegrated you MUST disassemble it and clean it out. The MOST infintesimle speck of gas line trapped, can allow good prime and bad operation. OK? Don't be lazy on this. Just be delicate removing the flaps gasket and diaphram. ZAMA GND-12 Is the replacement Gasket and diaphram kit fot that carb. Use a cleaner, compressed air or blow good thru it. OK Now...Primer bulb, Carb, and Fuel tank, re connects: Smaller Diameter line comes from Gas tank (Connect filter screen to this in tank) to the short Straight brass carb connector. Primer bulb suction goes to the bent carb brass connector. If small line brings fuel "in" this other line sucks it back "Thru the primer bulb" and the blow side of the primer bulb sends it back to the fuel tank! So...Small Line brings fuel "TO/IN" carb thru short brass connect on carb. Other carb connect goes to bulb suction "IN", Then primer bulb "Pressure OUT" goes thru the larger tube "back to fuel tank". Trust me I know how frustrating a simple diagram is to find online fo this set up. And if you have a carb problem on top of the hook up uncertainty you got frustration. Not only was online help hard to find (Mfg...etc NFG at all!) My local repairshop in BBrook NJ could not tell me how!!! and thats no lie! Walbro has a "generic" carb diagram but no "hook up info" specifically. Poulan don't list it either. And these things routinly fall to pcs. all 3 of mine crumpled together on yr. 3 of use.
