Question about Garden

1 Answer

Rpt 2600 What do I need to fix Ryobi RPT 2600, it does not have any power when I try to rev it up. It almost appears that it is starved of fuel. I have done the following so far: new spark plug, replaced fuel pipes and cleaned air filter. Gas mix is precise 50:1 as per instructions and historical use. When idling it is running smooth, as soon as I try to rev it, it wants to die.

Sounds like time for carb cleaning. You did all the right things first.(simple stuff).

Get a carb repair kit for your make/model.
I posted a how to clean your carb on this forum, you can always do this yourself if you are handy, else take it to a good small engine repair shop.

Have these unit been stored with fuel in them or sitting around for a long period of time? If so the carbs may need to be overhauled. Also check for a clogged fuel filter and vacuum test the fuel lines for cracks.

SOURCE: My Echo power edge trimmer

I was having the same problem and stood there while the tech fixed it for me. I could have done it myself; honestly, nothing to be afraid of. Take the air cleaner off and then take the carburetor off and start taking it apart layer by layer (remove screws and take pictures with a digital camera of how to put it back). It is not complicated and it was a small piece of grass stuck where you never thought it could get that allowed a start but not full throttle.

I have a ryobi rpt 320e grass trimmer. my question is when pushing the prime bubble , should fuel come out of the small hole on the plate under the diaphram bowl.

the small hole should have a line attached to it so fuel goes to the carb --the bulb --has inlet from tank to bulb -outlet from bulb to carb

My ryobi rpt 3000 dies when I push the throttle down?

Possibly a fueling issue. When you operate the throttle, you basically open up a butterfly on the carb which allows more air to enter the carb. This in turn pulls more fuel through the carb to even out the fuel air mix and maintain acceleration. It sounds like your engine isn't getting enough fuel drawn through for the amount of air the engine is getting.
Check you fuel filter, fuel lines.
Clean your carb and replace any fatigued diaphragms.

I've lost the user manual for my Ryobi 25cc RPT 2543c strimmer. Can you please advise where the dip stick is to check the oil. Can't seem to find it.

Ryobi RPT 2543c This is a 2 stroke engine, so no dipstick. You mix oil with the petrol (ratio 50:1) or 200ml of two stroke oil per litre of petrol, and that's how the engine is lubricated. Hope this helps,

Nikon SB-800 flash - needs to be reset ?? or repaired ??

Try reseting the flash itself, press and hold the "Mode" and "on/off" buttons together for 2 seconds approx...this should reset the whole flash.

If that doesn't work try unlocking it by pressing the "on/off" and "Sel" buttons together, the padlock should disappear.

With respect to the corroded contacts you just need to try and clean them as best you can...but it sounds like you have really bad contact with the battery and hence a serious voltage drop, hence the dim display and lack of the red ready light.
