Question about Ryobi 15" Electric Factory Reconditioned Trimmer (ZRRY41002) - Factory Reconditioned
I have just bought a Ryobi RLT30CES 2 stroke strimmer on ebay. It was advertised as a factory returned item that had obviously be sent back under warranty. It was described as in fully working order. It is, but it also plays up. It appears to have little use judging by the overall condition.
The machine fired up easily and ran well until it reached temperature after a few minutes use. Then it started to run roughly at revs until it just died. I re-started it and it did this a couple of times. I left it to cool down and it started again and did exactly the same thing. From cold it's fine, when it gets hot it plays up.
Carburettor adjustment has been recommended by the guy I bought it from but I am not exactly sure how to do that as I don't want to mess with it and make it worse.
My local mower repair place said they will not touch Ryobi propducts as they cannot easily get the spares.
Any ideas on what the problem could be, or if my hunch is correct, how to adjust it correctly would be gratefully received. It came without a manual etc.
I'm not sure about the carb. adjustment being removed. The newer carbs. only have one dial for adjustment, not the two screws like the "old school kind".It probably needs the carb. cleaned. Disassemble the carb. and clean with carb. cleaner. Use a Den Tek Brush, (used for cleaning teeth), to clean the small portals. Make sure the small screen in carb. is free of debis. The smallest of particals can cause your problem. Reassemble and try starting. If it still acts up, buy a carb. kit for trimmer and replace the needle valve, appropriate gaskets, diaphragm, and small screen. This should solve the problem.
