GHT-22 Hedge Trimmer Fuel Line Replaced and Still Won't Crank

I have a Poulan Weedeater GHT-22 Hedge Trimmer and the Fuel Lines Have Been Replaced, But I Still Have Problems Cranking It. How Do I Repair This Problem? Also, Once it Does Crank It has to be Cranked Again Within 5 Minutes, Sometimes Less Time Goes By Before I Have To Try and ReCrank It.

Any Help Will Be Greatly Appreciated
Thank you,

    Sorry, I can't solve your problem, but you could solve mine. How did you get your fuel and vent lines into the tank and connected properly?

SOURCE: Describe your Black & Decker Hedge Hog

You may have a piece of metal between the moving blade and the stationary one. Also the motor may have been at the top of the stroke when it stopped. You may be able to "force" the blade to move a little. This may free it enough to work.

SOURCE: Weedeater hedge trimmer will not stay running.

Firstly, make sure that the fuel mixture is good, as old or incorrectly mixed fuel, is a possibility.
Then as long as the air filter, and spark plug are ok, check that fuel is entering the carb. If so, you can adjust the timing, by expanding or reducing the gap between contact, and the magneto/coil.
You can also adjust the timing, by changing the gap on the plug too.
There ya go,
Don't forget to rate, thanks ;)

SOURCE: sharpen hedge trimmer blade??

My trick is to make sure that I always lube the blades after each session with a 3/4 engine oil + 1/4 kerosene mix - making sure that every tooth gets a drops or 2, then run it for a seconds to spread the oil & leave the blades overlapping. Doing this allows the blades to self sharpen I've found. 2 stroke oil , unmixed is about the perfect viscosity aswell.

How do the fuel lines in a weedeater trimmer pe550 hook up inside the gas tank

I have an older model that has a weighted filter in the tank. The filter flops around and can 'fall' into the fuel no matter which way you tilt the trimmer/tank. You should have one in your tank. Feed in the new line and make the end come out the gas cap. Push the filter/weight into the end of the fuel line. Pull the extra fuel line out of the tank to match the original position. You should have cut the new line to approximately the proper or same length as the old fuel line with an angle cut so you could push it into the tank.

GHT 225 Trimmer Replaced primer bulb, Starts OK but, will not keep running.

Try adjusting the low side screw on the carb. Back it out about 1/8 of a turn at a time until engine continues to idle. If this this doesn,t solve your problem then you will have to disassemble the carb and replace the diaphragms and fuel filter screen.

I've replaced the fuel lines and installed a carb rebuild kit on my Weedeater GHT 225 hedge trimmer and it still dogs out when I try to get it to full RPM's, sometimes even half choked. The spark plug and...

My best guess is that you replaced the internal parts of the carb, but you did not clean it and adjust it well enough. Take the carb back off and clean out all of the passages with aerosol carb cleaner. Remove each of the adjustment screws and blow cleaner through them as well. Reset them by turning them gently clockwise until they seat, then turn counterclockwise 1.5 turns each. This is a good starting point. Make sure the needle arm in the carb is set at the correct height. If you have a Zama carb, you can use a straight edge to set the height. Lay the edge across the carb (where the diaphragm will be) and check to see that the needle arm is just even with the edges of the carb.. If you have a Walbro carb, you will need to get the Walbro tool (WB 500-13-1) to get the needle arm set to its proper height. An arm that is set too low, will starve the engine and one that is too high will flood it. Also make sure the gaskets are installed in the proper order. Diaphragm side, the gasket goes on first, then the diaphragm. On the metering plate side, the metering pump goes on first (thinner one) then the gasket goes on, then the outer plate.
Don't forget to replace the inlet strainer (small screen).

On to fuel lines. You Weedeater product uses 2 sizes of fuel line. The smaller line must connect to the fuel filter in the tank, and then to the fuel port on the carb that is opposite the diaphragm. The fuel port that is closest to the diaphragm will connect the larger line. This is a return line and will go back to the tank. It may or may not have a small fitting on the end of it in the tank.

Now try a test run again. If it will idle, but not rev up, open up the Lo adjustment screw (closest to the engine) by turning it counterclockwise 1/4 turn. Test run. No change? go another 1/4 turn. If after all this, it is still not running properly, then there is a fault in the carb and it will need to be replaced.

Good luck!

I just put new fuel line on my trimmer now i cant start it not getting fuel the line never fills with fuel but i can **** fuel out so i know it not pinched it a weedeater brand ght-17

Make sure the little valve under the tank if you have one is fully turned clockwise. Make sure there is nothing clogging the tiny screen inside the fuel tank. Check or test your primer bulb it may be leaky. If carb or intake is leaking, you won't get gas either. If you have a filter on this model, try changing it.

How to get new plastic fuel lines in fuel tank in my weed-eater hedge trimmer. the line is larger than the hole in the tank.

Oftentimes it helps to use scissors to trim back a portion of the new line. Start at the bottom and cut upwards at an angle. Put some lubricant (WD40, perhaps) on the line and slide the sharp point into the fuel tank. Using needle nose pliers, grab the line and pull it through. This will only work if you have the correct size line. If the new line you are using is too large, you probably can't pull it through.

Should there be two lines going into the fuel inside the tan k

Yes one is the pick up line and should have a filter on it, The other is a return line which usually comes from the primer.
