Sounds like the carb or gasket around the carb is leaking allowing the pressure to blow by when you press the primer bulb. If its not air tight it will not pop back out. Check your carb and surrounding gaskets and check for a leak.

Will the unit start if choked? This will help narrow down the choice from probable faults. This could be a stuck check valve in the primer flange, a pinched line in the fuel tank, or a stuck inlet needle. Carburetor gaskets have nothing to do with a collapsed primer bulb. This is caused by a restriction somewhere in the incoming fuel circuits that feed the bulb. This means that your low and high check valves are sealing, and they should still function properly (some are not available from Zama or Walbro, but others are, some are very difficult to remove with a drill bit). If they were failing, air would be drawn into the bulb. It sounds this is a carburetor that qualifies for service.

If it's the one that comes 'out' of the primer bulb it is the return line that goes in the fuel tank.

Weed Eater PE550 711431, new primer bulb will not pop back after second second push.


FIXED- No start Weed Eater with the symptom of the primer bulb collapsed, not filling nor returning to pop out after pressed.

Worked in model WT-3100 with Walbro carburetor WT-583 and has to work in many others. It happened after winter hibernation, even when left with no fuel to prevent formation of fuel deposits.

FIRST, mark/scribe the carburetor fuel outlet that has the hose towards the primer purge bulb as 'OUT' and the fuel inlet coming from the fuel tank 'IN'
The problem was a fine mesh metal screen strainer blocked by contaminants, inserted at place shown as number '3' in figure 7 at
----> www.drystacked.com/Walbro%20Carburetor%20Theory%2027Jun2010.pdf
That fine mesh was removed by prying its edges around with a sewing needle held by pliers.
It you cannot see light trough it holding it against a lamp, is blocked even if looks clean.
Removed, discarded, reassembled and started. Later ordered the part or kit but was able to use the machine immediately.

Writing this as am tired of seeing responses like 'may be this' or 'try that' or 'perhaps the other' by guessers.

change the fuel lines over on the carby
you are trying to feed fuel through the primer line when the engine is running and that is why it is cutting out

Repair weed eater


If you see gas in the primer bulb it is pulling in gas to the bulb. If not check for cracks in the bulb assembly and check to see if the fuel lines are not off their fittings and not cracked.
