Weedeater WLT24 not holding a charge

Purchased last year and had no issues until now. Will only hold charge for about 5 minutes and then is very slow and won't trim. Found several complaints online regarding same product, but no mention as to how to fix. Any thoughts as I am not very technical but can usually work through an issue if explained. Any help is appreciated.
Purchased at Walmart last season., not named but is green and yellow, so possibly craftsman??

SOURCE: Craftsman 34cc 4 cycle weedwacker will not start

Start by removing and cleaning the spark plug. The check out the screen at the exhaust port and make sure that it is completely free of carbon build-up. I never run my equipment out of gas at the end of a season, I usually add some fuel stabilizer to the gas and run some into the carb before shutting down for the season. Hope this helps and good luck.

SOURCE: weedeater gas edger won't start!!!!!!!!!

yes, there is a spark module, but it's highly unlikely that two would have a bad module - more than likely, it is your gas mix. it must be fresh for the engine to run. the gas we have today will go bad in about a month and a half. if you happen to live in an area that has E85, forget it. small engines will not run very long, if at all on this junk. in some areas, you can get gas without alcohol, but it can only be used for lawn & garden equipment. it's expensive, but your engines will run

SOURCE: I have a craftsman 32cc

An auto feed line system will do just that and if too much line is released there is usually a cutter inside the edge of the plastic guard covering the string head. I use a Troy Built head on a 32 craftsman and I unscrew the bump knob ...twist and pull out the spring loaded spool....cut a lenth of line 6-8 feet or so....thread the two raw ends thru the two holes in the inner spool....pull them out until they are even with each other....then grasp each one and hold them side by side and wind them onto the spool in a clockwise manner. This is how I do the string head with a split boom that fits the 32cc Sears Power head (an older Troy Bilt).

The battery does not hold charge. It is weak. Replace it with same type number. Brand name of the battery isn't a matter, check its type number printed on it.

First, make sure your battery is fully charged. Then try to do a "Reset" .... by pressing and holding down the ON/OFF button for 5 seconds (or a lot more) until the device powers on again. Yes, at times, it may take a minute or more ! of holding that button down.

My battery does not hold the charge, i will charge it for 24/hour and it only last 5 minute, why is that, iI buy this product for wife when went to Iraq, and when i talked ton her on the phone three months...

NiCad batteries have this problem when they are recharged frequently after being only partially discharged. This is also the case when the batteries are left in the charger continuously - even if the charger is described as being "automatic". I have old 12v batteries that I have been using for 20 years, but I only charge them for a few hours, and only when they have run down enough to be useless. I prevent leaving them too long in the charger by using a timer that cuts the power to the charger after a couple of hours. A couple of years ago I bought new drills and chargers, and believed that the chargers would be automatic and so could be left plugged in. Those batteries only lasted a couple of years, while the old ones are still going strong. I now use the timer for any of these chargers, automatic or not - but I had to buy new batteries first. good luck, Al K

Got a replacement battery not long after I bought this weedeater. The replacement battery would not hold a full charge [unless it is supposed to last only 10 minutes]...however, I lived with it. Well now,...

The replacement battery should have come with a WARRANTY, e.g., 30 days or 90 days or 1 year.
Exercise that warranty to get it inspected/repaired/replaced.

How old is the weed-eater? Has its warranty expired? It could be a problem with the battery-recharger.

I just purchased a John Deere Gator at a garage sale. I have charged it until the green light comes on the charger, buy it does not hold the charge for longer than 10 minutes. Do yo have any suggestions

These small batteries do not last very long. Your best bet is to buy a new one, depending on how much you use it it will last between a year and four years. Unfortunately these batteries are also expensive, they run from $70.00 to $110.00 depending where you buy them. I have had the best luck at WalMart they go for the best price and they are good about honoring warranties on their batteries.

My battry is not charging goes upto 100% and the charge is finished in 4 or 5 minutes

Laptop batteries worn out with the passage of time and their charge holding capacity decreases.
The battery now has very less charge holding capacity (equal to 4-5 minutes), that's why it says it is 100% charged (capacity of 4-5-minutes).
So, it is recommended to replace the battery with original battery as it would last longer and serve you better.

Let me know if any further clarification/ assistance is required.

Good Luck!

HS850 charge doesn't last long

Sounds like you've got a defective model. Mine lasts about 4-5 days before I have to charge it.
