You have carburetor problems. You will need to take the carb. off and disassemble. Clean the carb. with carb. cleaner and use a Den Tek Brush, (used for cleaning teeth), for the small portals. Check the small screen in carb. to make sure it isn't clogged. The smallest of particals can cause the carb. problems. Check the gaskets as well. Depending on how old your trimmer is, you may have to buy a carb. kit and replace the Needle valve, appropriate gaskets, diaphragm, and small screen.

Let the engine warm at idle adequately before applying full throttle. With the engine warm, slowly bump the throttle and see if the response is good: if the engine wants to die again, let it continue warming at idle. If the problem persists, check that you are mixing your oil/gas mixture at the correct ratio: too much oil and you risk clogged the works.

Starts then dies stihl fs45/weedeater


I sounds like it sucked up some debris in the bottom of the fuel tank and obstructed fuel flow somewhere. Start by blowing out the in-tank fuel filter (You will have to fish it out with something), then load the line with carb cleaner (wear safety glasses) put fuel filter back in line and crank it a few times to pull the carb cleaner into the carb. This may dislodge the obstruction. If this doesn't work, you will have to remove and cleant he carburator. Hope this helps.

Starts but when throttled continues to die


You have a dirty carburetor or a carburetor in need of new parts. Disassemble carburetor. Clean with carb. cleaner and use a Den Tek Brush, (used for cleaning teeth), for the small portals. Check the small screen in carb., making sure that it's free of debris. Reassemble and see if it works properly. If it doesn't, then you will need to buy a carb. kit and replace the small screen, needle valve, appropriate gaskets, and diaphragm. This should do it.
