How do I get this tool apart to clean it.

Think you need to replace the motor brushes. As they wear they get shorter and the spring that pushes them up against the commutator is now at the end of its travel. Replace brushes or stretch the spring a tad.

Starting procedure

Terry: According to

  • Put on a pair of safety glasses. Remove the fuel cap from the Weed Eater and set it aside. Fill the fuel tank with unleaded gasoline that has been mixed with quality 2-stroke oil in a 40:1 ratio. Replace the fuel cap.
  • Move the Weed Eater to a safe place and lay it flat on the ground. Depress the fuel bulb located beneath the carburetor approximately six times to prime the engine. Press it slowly so that fuel has adequate time to traverse the fuel line.
  • Slide the handlebar-mounted engine "On/Stop" switch to the "On" position. Slide the choke lever beneath the fuel tank to the "Full" position.
  • Depress the "Throttle Lock" lever located beside the engine "On/Stop" switch. Keeping the lever depressed, squeeze the throttle trigger. Release the throttle lock. This sequence holds the trigger in the depressed position, which aids in starting the Weed Eater.
  • Roll the Weed Eater so that it is resting on the engine and the trimmer head shield only. This will allow the spinning trimmer head to avoid contact with the ground. Brace the Weed Eater by holding it to the ground with one hand. Using your other hand, pull the starter rope quickly until the engine begins to run. Do not pull the rope more than a dozen times. If it fails to start by then, squeeze the throttle trigger and continue to pull until the engine starts.
  • Allow the Weed Eater to warm up for about 15 seconds, then slide the choke lever to the "Off" position. Let the trimmer run for another minute without touching the throttle lever. After the Weed Eater has warmed up, squeeze the throttle trigger once to disengage the throttle lock. The trimmer is now operational.

    Erratic starting circular saw

    Sounds to me like you have a bad cord. Clamp the saw to a workbench so that it can start and run safely without you having to hold it. Put tape or a wire tie around the trigger to hold it in. THEN plug it in. Then move the cord around, especially near where it enters the saw. If the saw starts and stops intermittently you have confirmed the bad cord. Good luck.

    I have a poulan pro chainsaw it runs fine when choked but when i squeeze the trigger it dies what is wronr with it

    It is running too lean, start with the simple things first, replace the fuel filter in the tank, check all the fuel hoses for signs of damage or fuel leaks, replace as required, if all these things are ok, you need to richen up the mixture screws on the carb ( you may need special tools to do this if they are anti tamper screws ) unscrew 1/8 turn on each and try again.

    Turn on machine starts then cuts off

    Does the unit turn back on after you squeeze the trigger on the wand? If so, your unit is equipped with a high pressure cut off switch.

    After you clean and rebuild a tillston carburetor where do you set the air mixture jets to start

    Hi, Turn the L and H screws in gently until they just stop turning (no force at all) first. Then back them off 1.25 to 1.5 turns from closed. Set the L speed first unit running so that the unit does not stall when trigger is squeezed and then MAX throttle adjust the H screw until you get max speed. Recheck for stalls when trigger squeezed again and repeat above steps until you have no stalls / hesitation and max speed.

    ADJUSTMENTS should not be much more than the width of a screwdriver blade on either screw before re-testing. Never more than 1/8 th turn per adjustment for sure.

    Engine starts easily and then stalls, is hard to restart

    If the engine dies shortly after start. Squeeze the spray wand trigger to release pressure on the unit. When restarting let the engine run for a few min(2-3 no more) to warm up, the unloader valve on the pump should keep pressure to a minimum. If the engine stalls or will not run you need to check your carburetor and clean it. BECAREFUL as FUEL is FLAMMABLE and there are small parts in the carb float bowl that like to get lost. A rebuild kit for most carbs is less than $8USD and a can of spray carb cleaner about$2-3. Install a fuel cut off valve($6) to keep the carb from gumming up again. Shut off the fuel when not in use or for periods of prolonged storage. Take a picture of the carb on the engine(my memory is bad) and during disassembly to assure you get it back together properly. The idle screw should be turned in(to the right)till it seats lightly then backed out 1&1/2 to 2&1/2 turns to start with. After starting the engine adjust for good idle and running buy turning in or out to attain the best idle. If this is helpful, Please leave Feedback. Thanks, SnugglePants

    Gas engine will not start without pulling trigger on wand to relieve pressure-engine dies when letting off trigger

    I am afraid that is how they work even electric ones wont start unless you squeeze the trigger ,once they are running you should be ablr to release the trigger , and then squeeze it again whilst running . if yours dies when you release the trgger while motor is running -----good chance you are working at too high pressure. but to start you have to release all the internal pressure

    Pressure washer stalls out when wand nozzle is released

    common for not starting unless trigger engaged as you are turning the pump as well as engine creating pressure,as for stalling pump has unloader valve which is probably in need of grease(use good silicone grease)this allows water to ciculate when trigger released.
