Question about Ryobi 15" Electric Factory Reconditioned Trimmer (ZRRY41002) - Factory Reconditioned

1 Answer

Trimmer head won't turn

The trimmer head on my Ryobi 2800R doesn't spin anymore - motor works fine but the line doesn't turn - I am fairly adept at repairing most things but can't find a manual to see the exploded view for one of these and I don't want to just dive in blind if I don't have to. Any ideas on if this has a shear pin or is it a bad clutch?

If you didn't recently take it apart, then it sounds like you have broken the drive shaft in the neck of the trimmer. You can probably find this at an outdoor power and equipment type of store.

Hi, I have a RYOBI ELT1100QFA electric line


electric line trimmers suffer from one major design problem
the motor has phosphor bronze bushes and the bottom bush goes dry from the grass juice and wears out and the armature poles out and lacks power to work
to get 5 years is good but it is time to take it in for a service or junk it and get a new one

Ryobi trimmer not spinning, the motor runs fine, I think the friction clutch is worn.


Either the cintrifugal clutch is not engaging(if that model has one). Or the drive cable is snaped, or the rotary head drive lug is stripped. Pull off the drive head(where the nylon cord goes) & behind it is a flexable cable that transmits drive from the motor to the drive head(bobbin).pull it out and see if its broken.Check The rotary drive head lug,its on the top of the drive head (bobbin) you removed.
hope this helps

Ryobi 775r gas trimmer stalling when tilted


You have a air leak between to tank and motor. Could be carb gasket. When using in tilted position you dont have gravity feeded carb anymore, causing air to be sucked into carb. Take off carb and spray with crb cleaner, then blow out with air gun. Replace gasket, make sure all new lines and bulb connections are connected securely.
