Check the fuel lines for cracks/breaks. If they are o.k., then:

You will need to disassemble the carburetor and spray with carb.cleaner. Make sure the small screen is free of debris. (Should be able to see daylight through it.)

Use a Den Tek Brush, (http://www.drugstore.com/products/prod.asp?pid=165357&catid=1152),to clean the small portals in carb. These portals can become blocked. Reassemble and start.

If the carb. parts are more than 4 years old, you may have to replace them.

If you need further assistance, just let me know.

Was running great but now won't idle, even at full revs, will just die. Very frustrating.

Will start and idle,but give it gas and it dies.


Hi Tammy:
Make sure the air filter is clean.
Check the muffler. Sometimes they get clogged with carbon and the unit will idle but dies when you try to increase revs.

Probably the metering diaphragm, or the low side of the carb needs adjusted counter clockwise in 1/4 turn increments.

Engine starts then quits


does it have a fuel filter, or air? If it does make sure they are both clean and free of debris as priming will force fuel up line but will die as soon as its burned out

It runs normally at high revs but dies on idle


the units came out with EPA carb's some have idle screw adjustment and preset high jet, or the other way depending on the unit. try and change the fuel, use only high octane fuel for 2 cyc no ethanol with fresh oil mix, run for about 5 to 10 min's. if your carb has adjustment screws set your low side idle screw but still change the fuel.

Lawn Trimmer wont reach full revs.


you might want to check the magnito for rust build up.
it also wouldn't hurt to check the float or maybe even the valves.
since you adjusted the idle and mixture ur probly gonna have to adjust them again to get them back where they should be especially if rust build up on the magnito is the cause of your problem.
it wouldn't hurt to check the fuel filter either.

Lawn trimmer runs but won't rev


You need to clean the carburetor. Remove & disassemble. Use a Den Tek Brush,
(http://www.shopping.com/xPO-Lustrasilk-Lustrasilk-Cholesterol-Shea-Butter-Mango-20Oz-Bonus), to clean small portals in carb. Spray carb. with carb. cleaner. make sure the small screen in carb. is free of debris. Reassemble and start. If this doesn't work, buy a carb.kit and replace the needle valve, gasket(s), small screen, & diaphragm.
