Yes. I had the same thing happen. Ryobi can send you that exact part. I know this for a fact, because I just got mine in the mail yesterday.

Call Ryobi at 1-800-860-4050. I'm sorry, i don't have the part number, I'm at work. I'll look for it when I get home.

What you do is take off the air filter casing (both pieces, front and back) and you'll see the yellow plastic rod going through the carb, with a little circular metal piece to adjust the air mixture. Get a pliers and pull out that metal piece (don't worry about ruining the yellow plastic rod, because it's already broke). Once you have that out, the yellow rod will slide right out. Once you get the new one, you slide it in, push the metal piece back on, and it's finished.

Side note: I'm not sure at what point I did this, but be careful. You do NOT have to take the carb off when you do this. If you do, you might do as I did and lose the spring and ball bearing that make the choke control click into the A, B, and C positions.

Fortunately, I just talked with a great guy in the Ryobi Service department and he's sending me those two peices free of charge.

    Sorry it took a couple days.

    The model CS30 that I have is a RY3000. The part that I ordered from Ryobi was part # 004114, Description: "Shaft, Yellow choke"

    I looked for and did a search for this part on their website, but it did not come back. So you'll probably have to call them.

    Hope that helps.

    I need to correct something:

    The spring and ball bearing actually go behind the choke lever. It took me a while to figure out, because I couldn't find anything on the internet that referenced this exactly. But it slides down in a hole behind the lever. If you look at the lever, you'll see how it has 3 indentations on it. From that, you can figure out where the ball bearing goes.

    Again, hope that helps and sorry if I confused anyone.

Ryobi CS30 - Stalls out?


Dirt or varnish in fuel filter or carburator. Change filter if there is one.

Flush out the carb with a varnish remover.

Open high speed needle valve 1/8 turn farther, then turn in while running until it just smooths out.

Can't get my Ryobi CS30 trimmer started, bought a new spark plug, still won't start. It worked fine last summer, took it out for the first time today, won't start, has plenty of fuel


Is the fuel old or has it been drained and refilled?? Sometimes old fuel will do this. Also make sure the air filter is clean and free of oil/dirt as this will also hinder the starting.

The primer button also is something to check. Push it 7 times, full choke, pull for 5 times, turn to half choke, and the unit should start.

Let me know,

Chip

Ryobi cs30 starts fine, but idles way too fast after warm up. I mean screaming fast. Throttle return works fine and idle adjustment is set at it lowest.


you need to take your air filter off and look into the throat of the carbruetor to see if the ""Butterfly""
is still intact and working not the choke butterfly its the one closest to the engine that moves with the throttle and be sure it is still there and moves as you move the throttle.... open is horizontal and closed is not quite 90 Degrees. check to see it is tight and in the center if the throat when closed.
you may have to remove the carb. to see it function more clearly
make sure the throttle cable is free and not binding any where and to be sure of its adjustment to allow the throttle to return to the idle position.
lubricate the cable from the trigger to carb. wd 40 is ok.
if all above is ok then find the L on the carb. and ccw it 1/8 turn to ritchen it alittle to help slow the idle down some to a respectable level

I HAVE A MODEL775R RYOBI GAS TRIMMER 31CC IT HAS NO SPARK.


you probably made the mistake of leaving it in the shed over winter with gas in it.
in the carb there is a diaphgram that oumps this fuel in via the motor vibrations.
said diaphgram had been ruptured due to drying gas in the carb. the solver to this is to either have a small engine mechanic replace it or the whole carb or get a new one, and i would suggest you get the cs26 model instead. i have a cs30 and cs26 and i have had less problems with 26. it only has two chokes.
you prime it.
you push lever to start, closing all but a little bit of carb,giving engine much richer mixture.
you squeeze trigger, opens halfway/full, as there are two chokers in the carb, on controlled by lever and another by throttle.basically now you haave half choke.
you release trigger, goes back to 7/8 choke to keep at idle but not running. your ready to go.
on the cs30 its much more complicated:
ful choke
prime 7x.
pull 4x
half choke
pull till start.
wait ten seconds of running at idle rotate to run
good to go. but these guys have porr design. if you take off the back cover and look above fuel tank on cs30, the crank is RIGHT SMACK THERE and not better secured like in the '26 model.
that's what the little circular hole is in it.
anywho, the diaphgram is ruptured, and you probably haven't noticed that in addition you have gas leaking out the carb's air intake.

Replace pull cord on ryobi model cs30 weed wacker


Good fix, mrfixit-jerr! Also, if you remove the rear cover (4 screws) you can stabilize the crankshaft by inserting a screwdriver between the lobe of the shaft and the counterweight.

Ryobi CS30 will start but when I pull on the Throttle trigger it bogs down, good spark plug and filter is good.


i know what u guys got going here. you proably left it i the garage over winter with gas in it. maybe not. anywho, there is a diaphgram in the carb that pumps the fuel in via vibartions of the motor. poor design alont ith fuel filterINSIDE AND AT ONE END of the gas tank. anywho, this diaphgram is ruptured, and i bet there's also gas coming out os the carb and dripping off the choke selector?
this is a job for a small engine mechanic
