You will need to disassemble the carburetor and spray with carb.cleaner. Make sure the small screen in the carb. is free of debris. Use a Den Tek Brush, (http://www.drugstore.com/products/prod.asp?pid=165357&catid=1152), to clean the small portals in carb. These portals can become blocked. Reassemble and start.


If you need further assistance, just let me know.

Precautions to take when storing 2 cycle lawn equipment


Any time a weed wacker, chain saw, snowblower, leaf blower, or any 2 cycle machine must be stored for a period of time exceeding 6 months the gasoline must be removed completely from the gas tank and carburator. To do this simply run the engine until it runs out of gas then proceed to choke the carburetor and restart until no start up ocurrs this removes all fuel preventing the carburator from gumming up. This will allow you to store the unit for long periods of time without the worry of having to disassemble the carb. and clean next time it must be used.

Try cleaning or changing the air filter. If it dirty the engine will not stay running with out the choke on.

What is the problem when my 27cc craftsman weed wacker starts but doesnt stay running


check age of gas. Cannot be more than 30 days old.
Make sure to use fresh gas w/synthetic 2-cycle oil @ 40:1 ratio (1 gal.) Gas to 3.2 oz. Oil). Do not use old or stale oil/gas mixture. Always use the proper oil/gas mix. If you do not, your engine will suffer rapid, permanent damage.May need to clean or replace carburetor.

Craftsman weed wacker will start and run


Are you sure you have the right fuel mixture? Many of these require 2 Cycle oil to be added to the gas. If fuel is right, you may have a vacuum leak at the carb (or crack in base where it mounts to the engine). My weedwacker needed to be run on half choke for about 10 min before it got hot enough to run with choke off.

Husqvarna 235e will not stay running


Take the saw back for warranty service. We have a Husky #435 that had starting problems when new last year--warranty service replaced the ignition module the first trip, then a little later, they replaced the carburetor--it has worked very well since. I suspect that Husqvarna has had problems with our ethanol blended fuels. Hope this helps!

Weed wacker starts and runs but only on idle or part throttle. Full throttle stalls. New gas and plug does not help at all. when tank gets empty it runs like a raped ape for about 20 seconds before the...


My guess is you are getting way too much fuel. (Runs with choke "on" too? Maybe a little smoke with the correct oil ratio?) If that is true then there are 2 possible solutions. First has anyone tampered with any of the set screws on the carb? If no DON'T touch em. It runs good at the end (20 seconds of raped ape) because at that point the fuel air mix balances out for a short period. But its in a aberrant mode, normally it would putter down and out. Flooding or "too much fuel" happens from 2 causes usually. one is you got a tiny spec of dirt, or gas varnish, or recrystallized whatever holding the needle valve open, letting too much fuel in. Try pulling off the fuel lines from the carb and spraying in some Gumout or carb cleaner, let it sit 5 min. Spray again, then blow out the passages in both directions with a compressed air source or a clean separate vinyl hose piece you can blow thru. Make sure the air filter isn't full of silt and dust. (Not enough air can cause this too, but its a bit different...not by much though) After you clear out the carb reconnect the lines and try it again. Let me know what happens. If the set screws were tampered with, I then have another set of steps to follow.

These 4 cycle trimmers need to be primed 10x before a cold start. The bulb will feel *firmer* on the last two or three depressions and you'll know that the carb is primed.

Full choke and and full throttle on first tug should see it hit once with a puff of smoke. Second start attempt should be in choke position two (half choke) and with full pressure on the throttle. Should rev to life on start attempt. Let the engine IDLE for 30 seconds, moving the choke to off at the end of the waiting period. Let engine idle to warm another full minute with no choke, then set to work!

I have a ryobi weed eater clean carb change filter and spark plug wont run off choke


I have the same problem. It will run if I put it halfway between Half Choke and Full Choke. But, just dies if I put it on Run or Half Choke. Don't ever loan your WE to anyone, They might just try to run it on straight gas--That is what happened on another week eater that I had.

Redmax weed wacker wont stay running


Have these unit been stored with fuel in them or sitting around for a long period of time? If so the carbs may need to be overhauled. Also check for a clogged fuel filter and vacuum test the fuel lines for cracks.
