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, (,to clean the small portals in carb. These portals can become blocked. Reassemble and start.

If the carb. parts are more than 4 years old, you may have to replace them.

    The longest, and sometimes smaller in diameter of the two fuel lines, goes from
    the carburetor to the bottom of the tank. Leave enough slack in this
    line so that the filter that attaches to the end will rest comfortably at the bottom of the tank.

    fuel line goes from the primer bulb to just inside the tank,
    (about an inch). make sure that you get the right size fuel lines. The
    plastic coupling goes on the end of this line, inside the tank. This
    keeps the line from pulling out of the tank.

    (HINT): When feeding the lines through the tank holes, cut the lines at an
    angle. They will feed much easier into the holes. You can than cut them
    off square, once you know that you have enough to work with.

    If you need further assistance, just let me know.

My PE550 weedeater edger that won't stay running. I have new carb, new fuel lines, new starter coil. any idea what could be the problem? I am now checking the gas cap, breather is good

check your fuel lines ensure you have them on correctly also check spark plug clean if necessary also when you change out fuel lines and carb it may take quite a few pulls to crank cause the little fuel system has to get primed up!

If the primer bulb is sticking down then, first try taking the gas cap off and pumping the primer. If this solved your problem, the duckbill valve built into the gas cap needs to be replaced, or you can replace the whole gas cap. If this didn't solve your problem, you have a clog somewhere else in the system or an internal problem with the carb. Try taking a pair of needle nose pliers and pulling both fuel lines out of the tank. Take the fuel "filter" off of the line and try pumping the primer. If it sticks down still, your problem is inside the carb. A rebuild kit would probably fix it if you are confident in tearing down and reassembling the carb, otherwise you can just replace it for about 30 dollars.

My string trimmer ppb250E will not start and is leaking fuel. How do I remove the plastic shroud to get to the carburator?

The cover is held in place with probably 4 screws of the Torx head variety. Once you get that off, you will be able to access the carburetor. If the fuel leak is at the carb, you will need a gasket and diaghragm kit. If the hoses in the fuel tank are leaking, you will need new fuel lines. IF the fuel tank itself is leaking, you can seal it with a product called "Seal-All" that is quite resistant to oil and gasoline.
