Start your adjustment by turning both screws (gas and air) all the way in and then back them out one and a fourth turn. Start from there. Hope this helps.

Trimmer has to stay between half choke and full choke to stay running what is it


Start with carb adjustment. One full turn out on both low and high side, then set the idle. If this doesn't fix it, then rebuild the carb.

Won stay running


Needs a carb adjustment, cleaning, or possible rebuilt. Try adding a little seafoam and running at half choke for about 5 mins or longer this may clean it up nicely. also check the spark plug.

Crafsman 25cc weedwacker won't stay running


You probably have a bad hose or a bad hose connection that is sucking mostly air instead of delivering full fuel to the carburetor!

Ryobi CS30 Trimmer starts and runs in full choke and half choke but stumbles and stalls on run. Not up to full rpms when in full choke and half choke....


You probably need a slight carburetor adjustment. Try to turn the L mixture screw (the one near the bottom of the carburetor on the air filter side, closest to the engine) 1/8 to 1/4 of a turn counterclockwise. These mixture adjustment screws ( L and H) have odd heads on them and conventional tools won't turn them. I use an automotive type plastic wire connector (around 22 gauge) with a ring terminal end which I can hold. Tap the plastic end of the wire terminal connector onto the head of the screw with a small hammer and this will enable you to adjust the L screw. This adjustment will increase you high speed side and possibly allow it to run off choke in a regular manner.

Engine will start but only run at choke or half choke and low throttle sputteres and or dies if you try to increase to full throttle and dies if you take off choke


Sounds like fuel starvation. Check for plugged fuel filter or sediment or dirt in the fuel tank. Failing that, examine the carburetor for dirt/sedment plugging it. Good luck!

Engine does not continue to run


Are you laying off the choke at any point? Full choke should only be used when starting a cold engine, it should run with no choke on full throttle. If there is not enough throttle i'd first try adjusting the tiny black screw on the carb beneath your air filter while you have it idling, letting the throttle have a little bit more room. If this doesn't work and you're running it properly than you may need to make some adjustments to the H L settings for your gas/air mix. This is also done while idling mind you and only with a clean air filter.

Won't start, can't remember starting procedures and dont have manual


Make sure the fuel valve is on. Generally that means pointing down inless there is a diagram on it.

Turn the switch on.

Pull the choke on the carbuerator on full. There will be a picture of a butterfly valve set it so that it is closed. Pull the cord till the engine fires. let it sputter for a second, then open the choke. If the engine dies right away, do all of the above again but once it fires, only open the choke half way. once it warms up a bit open the choke completely.

Need carb h/l ajustemts and idle controle ajustment


This does take a little time to get it just right. Start at one full turn for the h and l. Work on the high first and after you get the H running work on the Low. They have to work together. So if you get it to idle and run at full throttle but it hesitates when you pull the trigger just adjust the low a little higher.

Engine dies when excelerating - more gas


check the fuek lines for hole and leaks, check the fuel filter and clean if necessary. remove the carbuerator and inspect the gasket; it should be soft and flexible, if it seems hard or brittle replace it. clean the carb with carb cleaner sray (available at any local auto parts store) and compressed air. make sure you get inside the small fuel rail holes. if that doesn't work have the carb repaired at a service center or replaced.
