I have a ryobi SS30 weed eater. I can start it with no problem, but once I start to trim with it, it will shut off. I have replaced the fuel lines, clean the air filter,and adjusted the throller. What do you think?

Are you sure about the model number? I see several 30CC engine string trimmers by Ryobi. Two are the Ryobi RY30040B (SS30) and a RY30544 (SS30).
For both of these models, mix a high quality 2-cycle engine oil at 2.6 oz. per gallon of gasoline to pour into the gas tank. This ratio is used in several other Ryobi string trimmer models. Many Ryobi product manuals are available here: https://www.ryobitools.com/power-tools/support/manuals . Most Ryobi gas powered and 40V battery-powered tools will have a model number that starts with RY. The 18 V battery powered models often start with a P.
I hope this helps. If you add a comment with the actual model number, I may be able to provide more information.
Did you check the muffler exhaust or spark arrester, to see if it is clogged from using to rich a oil/gas mixture ? Did you replace the diaphragm in correct position ? Find a new carb online, possibly ebay ?
It may just need a G & D kit installed. That is a gasket and diaghragm. Just take the 4 Torx screws out of the rear cover and remove it. You will then be looking at the choke plate assembly which has 2 long screws that go through the housing of the carb and screw into the rear crankcase cover/reed valve assembly. Pull the 2 fuel lines off (noting where they went) and you'll have it. Once you have the carb off, you can get the manufacturer and model # off of it and order a kit. The G&D kit will probably fix what ails it or you can go for a complete rebuild and get a rebuild kit. If the carb is a Zama or Walbro, they sell the kits on Ebay.If the carb has brittle diaghrams inside, replace them; if they are still soft and pliable, then you may only need to clean the carb real well and adjust the H and L mixture screws. They will be plainly marked, but are difficult to remove. Post back for more help!

there is another t20 screw in the neck of the drum. once removed you will expose the drive clutch. soak it good with WD40 then unscrew it from the shaft. if you have all the housing screws out, you should be able to simply remove the housing to expose the pull cord assembly, screwed to housing.
