I have a 30cc ryobi trimmer that will start but not run unless the choke is fully on. The moment I use the throttle or turn off the choke ,it dies. what could be the problem? thanks.


Hi Guy:
The first thing I would check would be the fuel filter.
Try pulling it out and giving it a really good clean.
Probably a good idea to put fresh gas in at the same time if it's been sitting for a while.

Gas Trimmer will not stay started


Many times with a gas mix, after sitting for a while, the mix separates and gums up the carb. Taking the carb off and soaking it overnight in a parts or carb cleaner and running carb cleaner through the tank and gas lines will cure this.

How come weedwacker tries to crank while on choke but when you move lever to 2nd position it tries to crank? but wont


When mine does that I go back and reprime repeating the process. It seems the gas does not feed up fully with the initial priming effort. Once it starts I move the choke lever quickly on way or the other to see if I can keep it running until it gets warmed up. Sometimes I have to adjust the choke setting even after it has run for a while.

Why does husqvarna 123hd60 bogs on revs


Mix up some "carburetor & fuel injector cleaner" in a batch of fuel, Nathan, at the rate specified on the bottle of cleaner. Run it through the hedge trimmer just like normal fuel. For right NOW, you can use the choke to keep the trimmer running. As the cleaner works, you should need less & less choke to keep it going.

It may take a while.

Next time you store that trimmer for winter, drain it fully and run it until it dies from lack of fuel. Then it won't form varnish on the carburetor jets over the winter - that varnish is what's causing your problems now.

How to start


Full choke until it tries to start, half choke until it does, and once it's running, open the choke fully and wait a few seconds for it to warm up before using it, as well as 15-20 seconds to let it cool down before shutting it off so as not to warp any metal parts of the engine

Hedger wont run unless it has choke on


Sounds like the carb is lean. Back out the adjustments 1 quarter turn and work from there. Also make sure air filter is clean.That should get ya going.

It wont start


First, make sure that the gas mixture is correct (gas and oil mixed in the right proportion). Next, press the primer bulb 3-4 times, turn the choke lever on to Full Choke, and pull the starter cord until the engine seems like to wants to start, but dies. Next, switch the choke lever to Half Choke and start the gas trimmer, giving it gas by pulling on the trigger. Once it has warmed up fully, you may be able to reduce the Half Choke to No Choke, although my 20+ years of experience with dozens and dozens of models tells me that many trimmers run better, although smoking slightly, when you keep them at Half Choke. One last tip, when pulling the cord, try pushing the trimmer away from you with the opposite hand at the exact same time that you are pulling the starter cord--the equal and opposite push-pull technique may sound like something from karate (and it is, in a way), but it is really helpful when trying to start trimmers. Best of luck, Bill

PS: Check you owner's manual (at home or online) for the proper gas/oil mixture. Empty any old gas out and replace the spark plug, if required.
