Hows the muffler held on? screws? and if so, how many? are they (if multiple screws) the same length? If not, change the holes that they go into. It may be an interference problem

I have a Ryobi RY28120 gas powered weedeater that will start sometimes and not at others. Not sure if the carb needs cleaning or if it need a new muffler. Maybe adjusting carb screws? Not sure! Also,...


Use only fresh gasoline (alcohol free if you can find it). Purchase a top quality synthetic 2 stroke oil such as Lucas, Golden Spectra and mix it exactly as the manufacture dictates. Install a new accurately gapped plug and make sure the plug wire cap (boot) is pulled back to inspect the wire to connector crimp. Start it up as you normally would to allow the new gas and oil to permiate the system and if you cannot get it to stay running without the choke being on shut it down and squirt some oil into the carburetor and pull the trimmer over, if this makes it start everytime it does not want to start and it allows you to click off of run you have either low compression (rings are worn). or your carb is yet another victim of the geniouses that thought alcohol in gas was a super idea. Either way you can replace the piston and rings or the carb. both are almost not worth the time and cost anymore, a new carb for mine is $70.00, with a new piston and ring set being around $40.00 and a brand new trimmer the same as this one on sale at $130.00 it was an easy decision to buy new.

How do i adjust the fuel air mix on a 2012 cub cadet bc210 trimmer


there is a special tool that fits the splines on the carb screws, part no. 530035560, before adjusting the Hjet make sure the air filter is clean, and if it has a spark arrestor in the muffler outlet check it has not carboned up, both of these things will cause the engine to run rich.

Ryobi 765R string trimmer. Engine is starving for gas. Fuel line is flowing and primer bulb has been replaced. Engine will run for a few seconds with ether sprayed into the carb. Trimmer is 3 years old...


On muffler there is a screen located on bottom of muffler remove the two small screws in cover, remove screen and clean thoroughly. If this does not fix check price of rebuild kit for carburetor or check price of new carb. If new is within $5 of kit buy new and replace or rebuild carb.

Trimmer will only run for a few secs then dies out


Sounds like you will need to clean your carburetor.
Sometimes you can get by with priming it a few times, and letting it
run a few times like that and it will flush the gunk out of the jets,
but most of the time you will need to rebuild the carburetor.
If the mower is over a couple years old, then I also recommend that you
buy and install a new carburetor repair kit, because the diaphragm will
get hard and that will cause it to be hard to crank.
When you clean your carburetor and remove the jet screws, count the
number of turns it takes to seat the jets from their original position.
That way when you go to put the jets back in, you know how many turns
they were in/out.
Please do not forget to rate me, Thanks
Good Luck, I hope this helped

When start go to rev it just dies


Remove the throttle stop adjuster and the air screw adjuster and spray carb cleaner in the holes.
Be sure to put these two screws back in the same hole they came out of. IMPORTANT > do not tighten these two adjusters down. Only screw these in until they LIGHTLY seat. Now turn each adjuster one and one half turns outward. Turn the pilot screw 1/4 turn counter clockwise. Check the float level. Before putting the slide back in the throat of the carb, move the clip on the jet needle one notch lower.Put the rest of the carb back together, clean the air filter and install the carb. Let the float bowl fill then start the engine. Adjust the idle speed with the Throttle stop screw. This process should get you back on the road. A “very helpful” rating for this answer? Thanks!

Engine won't keep running when using the throtle.


Hi Don. There are two adjustment screws on the carburetor. Start the engine and while it is idling, turn the screw closest the engine (low speed adjustment) counterclockwise until it starts to falter, then back a 'hair' and try the throttle again. If that doesn't work, I would recommend doing what I usually do... put a new carb on and be done with it! Carb is a Zama C1U-K54A
