Ght225 Weedeater hedge trimmer

I have replaced the spark plug and cleaned the air filter but it will not start. I could not see a spark when I crank the engine. Maybe the ignition module????

Not uncommon for ignition module to fail, but before ordering one, check flywheel for its magnetic field. Use some steel material to test for field strength. Coil too is an option but typically they are pretty reliable.

I recently had my Choke lever replaced on my Poulan Hedge trimmer, (model GHT 225.) Now the fuel doesn't pump into the fuel line. Any thoughts?

Much thanks,

My 10 year old weedeater hedge trimmer ran fine last year when I put it away for the season. When I tried to start it this year it wouldn't even fire. I put fresh fuel mix in and a new spark plug and...


I would check for spark and check the fuel lines, especially if fuel is left in it. Also if fuel left in you will have to empty the lines and carburetor or pull it enough to clear. Another thing to consider is that if fuel was left in it that the carburetor may need a rebuild, replacing the diaphrams.

I hope this is helpful for you.

Hard to start and will only run on choke or partial choke


Hi,

The problem is probably due to a fuel flow problem or clogged air filter, but could be caused by the insulation of the spark plug breaking down when it gets hot. Try changing the plug and if this doesn't work have a look at these tips:

WHAT IS THE OIL AND GAS MIXTURE RATIO FOR THE POULAN PRO WEED EATER. I HAVE A NEW MACHINE AND IT WILL NOT START AFTER ONLY ONE DAYS USE. WHEN IT DID START IT KEPT CUTTING OFF EVERY TIME YOU PRESS THE...


Gas / oil should be in ratio 50 / 1 and use two stroke oil for strimmers or chainsaws.

Firstly check the high-tension lead to the spark plug isn't loose. Remove the spark plug and place the body of the plug against the engine so that it is grounded. Check there is a spark when the engine is cranked. If no spark, there may be a short circuit or crack in the white insulation part of the plug so temporarily try another plug to see if you get a spark. Don't actually use this in the engine unless it's the same time type as it may result in engine damage if it's too long. If this still doesn't work, there may be a problem with the cut off switch, which cuts the engine when the safety handle is released, if this is the case it may be necessary to strip the cowl off the top of the engine to trace the wire and switch.
The fuel lines may have become airlocked.This can happen if the tank is run dry. If the weedeater has a primer bulb, alternatively press it several times and then try to pull start the engine with choke on. Repeat this several times. The primer bulb should feel spongy and fill with fuel.
If you're up to it, you can dismantle the carburettor and clean any dirt from valves.The carburettors on chainsaws, hedge cutters, strimmers etc are very fiddly with delicate diaphragms, valves and springs so you have to be careful to avoid damage or loosing parts.
Ensure air filter is clean. Foam elements can be washed with hot water and detergent and squeezed dry in a cloth. Paper elements can be cleaned with compressed air blown from the inside of the filter but ideally should be replaced.
Check fuel lines aren't kinked or blocked restricting fuel flow.
Ensure fuel filter isn't dirty. This is probably located at the end of the fuel line in the tank.
Check the throttle cable is actuating the throttle plate in the carburettor.
Check whether there is a vent on the tank or on fuel cap. There is usually a valve on this to allow air into tank to replace fuel as it leaves for the carburettor. Ensure this isn't blocked.
