If they are not capped with limiter caps
you can try this turn both adj. cw with a small screwdriver until
they bottom out do not force once they stop turning
now back them out 1and1/4 to 1and1/2 ccw
that is the approx. initial setting.

My ryobi rpt 3000 dies when I push the throttle down?

Possibly a fueling issue. When you operate the throttle, you basically open up a butterfly on the carb which allows more air to enter the carb. This in turn pulls more fuel through the carb to even out the fuel air mix and maintain acceleration. It sounds like your engine isn't getting enough fuel drawn through for the amount of air the engine is getting.
Check you fuel filter, fuel lines.
Clean your carb and replace any fatigued diaphragms.

Engine starts & runs at idle. Dies when switched to RUN & wont accelerate.

Sounds like its a fueling issue. With small tool 2 stroke engines when you pull the throttle you actually increase the amount of air the carb gets. In turn, this rush of air through the venturi of the carb draws more fuel into the cylinder. If your engine is cutting out or wont accelerate this is generally because the engine is either getting too much fuel or not enough for the fuel/air mix to burn effectively. It could also be air getting into the fueling system by means of a damaged fuel line or carb diaphragm. By all means clean the carbon from the exhaust and clean the air filter, they can only help the running of the engine. Hope this is of some help.

Ryobi 9600 backpack blower. Starts great. Set to run, continues running. Upon attempt to use throttle, engine dies. Acts like choking out but removed carb cover an choke is no closing.

this sounds strangely like the high speed jet/pathway in the carb is clogged up with something ,

the best way to fix it is dissasmbly and cleaning of carb in solvent , but ive also had some limited sucess in past of using car fuel cleaner (says on bottle "cleans as you drive") too

Runs good for 2-3 min, then dies

I would try using some solvent to clean the carb. It sounds like the float valve is not moving freely, therefore not letting enough fuel into the carb. Be careful though, solvent can be a bit rough on the engine, so be sure to drain it out of the fuel bowl and replace with the appropriate fuel before starting the engine.

Ryobi b/p blower ry 08570 stalls out when givin the gas why and how can i correct this problem? do i need to throw it to the curb and buy an echo?

I would check your fuel filter and make sure you have all fresh gas in tank, then I would check to see if it will run with choke on , then I would check exhaust port and muffler screen for being plugged, then I would dissasemble and clean carb and check diaphrams and pump for being stretched and also clean out inlet screen and needle&seat . If all else fails I guess I would do the alternative either an echo or redmax or dalmar ! dalmar makes a great 4 cycle takes reg gas I have one it is great!!

I Have a Ryobi Trimmer. I cleaned out the carb and put it back together but forgot the High and Low needle settings. I have got it to start but am having trouble tuning it. I have put a carb kit in it and...

adjust the needles both all the way in until they stops. unscrew both 1 1/2 turns and start engine. slowly accelerate and if it bogs down unscrew the HIGH SLOWLY until full speed is gain. some times you have to unscrew a little the low speed too. is a matter of playing with it. be patient you will get it. if you are still having problems you may have to take the bottom of carb. out and make sure the gas inlet needle is letting pass gas into the carb. chamber.

the high speed check valve is most likely stuck and not allowing fuel to flow properly. the bad thing is it cant really be fixed. i have had some luck removing everything and putting it in an ultra sonic cleaner for about 10 minutes. however the fix doesnt usually last long. may want to look in to a new carb.

Ryobi Tiller, model RY60511A, will not start. Air

mine was a total pain. I yanked on the rope so many times, it flew out of the keeper,and when I replaced it I ran it UNDER the fuel tank cutting a slot in tank. I also blew out the primer bulb. AFTER the replacement tank I arrived, I discovered rolling the machine forward helped the flow to carb and did not require priming. Now I need to fix throttle cable. But all in all, a tough little machine.
