Check to see if fuel is leaving the tank, the internal screen might be plugged up. Check the rubber fuel lines and if provided the in line fuel filter for flow. Don't always trust carb cleaners and compressed air to clean a carb., you might have to use a steel wire from a wire brush to open the jets and passages.

My still fs36 whipper snipper runs but wont rev out

The strimmer has a small engine and therefore very small fuel passages that are very easily blocked unless a near-surgical cleanliness is observed when fueling and the air cleaner maintenance is up to date and carefully carried out.

In my experience such fuel-related problems are most likely. It is worth checking the spark plug first considering how much easier that would be. In the case of a blackened condition begin by checking the air cleaner for fouling and the cold start for correct operation.

How to fit whipper snipper line

Hold the snipper upside down so the petrol leaks onto the kitchen floor. Take 6 metres of line and untangle it eventually. Stick it through the two holes and wind the cord in opposite directions so it jams together and tangles. Stick the unit head back together with two feet of line sticking out each side. Start the trimmer and jump backwards as the line rips itself to pieces. Use it on weeds until line breaks within 20 seconds. Slam the end of the trimmer into the concrete and shout **** fuckey **** ****. Then tear off the head cover and start again. I have done this for years and it never fails. Hope this helps.
