SOURCE: TB70ss Trimmer runs but does not turn the string

Remove the angle drive gearbox near the string head and spin it to see if everything is moving properly. You may have stripped the gears out of it.

Stihl fs 55r head won't turn


Check drive shaft. Some models have a flexible cable drive shaft that is prone to breaking. also make sure the drive shaft is engaged in the clutch drum and in the gear head end.

When my flymo lite 250 engine is running the end does not turn to cut the grass


Could be anything from a stripped drive shaft to a loose or stripped trimmer head. You'll probably need to take it to a repair shop to have them diagnose the problem and locate the replacement parts if it's anything other than a stripped trimmer head bolt.

How to adjust the carburtor high and low on my weedeater head cutter?


Hi jamesbj44...
Before you remove or try to adjust your low and high speed jets you should always count the number of turns to lightly bottom the adjusting screws.
Be sure to write the number of turns down on a piece of paper so you will know when you go to replace them.
Normally you adjust your idle jet to 1/2-3/4 turn open from the bottom seated position to start with...you re-adjust when the engine is warm turning the screw in or out till the engine runs smoothly.
The high speed jet is normally adjusted to 1 1/2- 1 3/4 open from the bottom seated positon, then re-adjusted to run smoothly when running at high speed by turning the screw in or out.

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.
