Ryobi RLT 30 CES Strimmer - Won't run properl7

Hi,
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.
Thanks.

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.

Ryobi rlt 30 cesa petrol strimmer will not start


Keith you have got to make sure the gap is right between the coil and the magnetic flywheel. Use a buisness card to set the gap and make sure the coil is on the right way.

What is the 2 stroke petrol mix for a garden strimmer, Ryobi 25cc PLT 2543 please?


hi there keithprobert

the ratio to use if using top quality 2 stroke oil is 50:1 that is 20 mills of 2 stroke oil per 1.0 litre of petrol that you mix.

but if not using top quality 2 stroke oil use ratio 25:1 that is 40 mills of 2stroke oil per 1.0 litre of petrol that you mix.

Starting problem with a Ryobi rlt30ces petrol strimmer


Hi
I have had the similar problem & spent a day stripping the unit down
(dismantled & re-assembled the carb, seemed OK fuel reaching & flooding the plug) I unscrewed the spark plug from the body, but left it connected to the lead and found that there was intermittent spark when pulling the cord. and tested it with a continuity meter - no signal/measurement. bought a new spark plug, meter reading showed signal/measurement, now starts every time. It may be that Ryobi has been installing rather cheap nasty plugs. So test the plug first by watching the spark when pulling cord, test with a meter, if no continuity, buy new plug....


Check also that little gauze air filter behind the roto choke is not blocked.
this solved it for me.

Please remember to give me a rating ...ta

I also tried this.

  1. Clean the carb wire gauze air filter behind the roto-choke knob. (undo the nut/washers & long bolt)
  2. Deteremine if fuel is being fed to cylinder - Fully depress & prime the bulb about 7 times, turn to full choke. Pull start cord about 7 times. Remove spark plug see/smell fuel fumes/vapour present in cylinder
  3. Determine if compression is weak - remove plug, put finger over plug port, pull start cord. Should be evident of resistance/pressure build up when cord is pulled.
  4. Of course brand new plug!!! as above (I would try this first)
Hope this helps
please rate my comments - Thanks

I have one of these and I have to admit they are a bit of a bug*er to start. Following the instructions though on the sheet for trying to start it eventually should kick it off and then you should be away. I start mine by alternating between no choke and the half choke with about half a dozen pulls each. generally pull with the throttle held but try a few with it off every now and again. If you get to 10 mins without success, put it down, have a drink and a rest and go back in 30 mins and try again.
I wouldnt have thought a straight petrol mix would do it any harm though, if you had over mixed with oil then that could have been a differnt story.
