Ryobi BC30 Weedeater - Cannot Start

My weedeater referenced in the subject line will not start. I have checked the fule lines...clear...muffler is clean and clear. When I first pull the cord, it sounds like it wants to start at the very beginning but it won't keep going.
My uncle suggested adjusting the fuel mixture by turning two screws. I have adjusted those screws every way possible (that;s how I got it to act like it wants to start in the first place) but it will not turn over.
Any suggestions?? How do I adjust those screws correctly?
Any help would be appreciated.

Check the fuel lines for cracks/breaks. If they are o.k., then:

You will need to disassemble the carburetor and spray with carb.cleaner. Make sure the small screen is free of debris. (Should be able to see daylight through it.) 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.

What would be wrong with my weedeater when i press the primer bulb gas will start to come out of the gas cap ?


You could have a clogged tube from the primer into the carb, but it also sounds like the fuel tank is overfilled.

MY ryobi bc30 expandit starts,but the weedeater head is not rotating


The drive may be broke. It travels from the head to the engine. The drive spindle is attached in a hole at the engine and the engine rotates the spindle to rotate the head. The drive spindle must be broke inside the shaft, the engine or the head. If this is the case, a new weedeater will be a better option.

My ryobi weedeater will start in the choke or low position but will die when you switch it to the middle or high position.


It's the muffler. Everyone thinks fuel, carburetor, mixture. They're wrong. The muffler is clogged and the unit can't be tuned to high throttle until you clean it.

Steps: Remove the back housing to access the muffler. You may want to remove the gas tank to avoid a spill. Remove the muffler (2 large screws). Remove the muffler door (3 small screws). The screen should be cleaned using a pin (poke out any hardened material). Most important: The muffler door is 2 parts. Pry it apart and scrape off the burnt carbon that is clogging the exhaust path. Re-assemble and start.

Weedeater blower will not prime


The primer bulb sucks fuel from the tank to the carb. When the carb has enough fuel the remainder is sent back to the tank. When you replaced the fuel line did you use the exact length of line and did you re-install the filter. On some of the trimmers the filter is weighted and holds the line in the fuel. Good luck...Lee
