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.

What are the steps to start mower.


I could not locate your exact model for a manual. This machine's manual is very similar. Please read the operating and "How To Start" instructions inside the manual. They can tell you better than I.

Looking for carb settings for yardman gas trimmer ym 400 31cc won't rev up , dies


Most carburetors on the 2 stroke trimmers are all the same. They are of the diaphragm type. I would like to send you to a tutorial/information tuning page for this type of carburetor. If you do choose to adjust it yourself, pay real close attention to the before and after settings on the screws you turn. These carbs are extemely sensitive and respond likewise. I use an automotive type plastic wire connector lightly tapped down onto the unconventional heads of the L and H mixture screws to turn them. The plastic on the connector will expand a little and grip the screw head to allow you to turn it without any damage to the screw. Please view this tuning guide.

Engine dies when throttle is given


Typically those symptoms indicate the engine is not getting enough fuel, the first thing to check is to make sure the fuel/oil is fresh as over time the gas evaporates and leave a mixture with too much oil. Once you do that start it up and look for air bubbles in the fuel line(s), if bubbles are present you have a tiny air leak and that's all it takes to make them not want to run on high speed. If no air bubbles are present then the high speed circuit is at fault and the carb must be disassembled and cleaned or replaced.

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

Ive got a troy-bilt gas trimmer tb25cs it has always ran perfect,until now when i start it up aqnd give it gas it stops running and leaks gas


Check and clean your spark arrestor located behind a diverter plate on outside of muffler. You'll need a #25 Torx, or one slot screwdriver and wrench to take the plate off. Clean it with carb cleaner and wire brush and re-install. If this screen gets clogged, it could lead to fuel spray coming out of carb throat. Clean and re-oil the sponge filter while you're at it. Hope it helps!

Homelite xs 135 runs 10-15 min then stops. have to reprime and it runs 10-15 min.


Either the gas mixture is not quite right or the gas cap is slightly clogged.

If you don't have enough oil in the gas, this may cause it to overheat.

The next time you run the trimmer and it starts to die, loosen the gas cap. If it starts running again, then you know that it's a clogged gas cap.

You may also check the air breather, it may be dirty as well.

If you need further assistance, just let me know.

Husqvarna 323L gas trimmer runs & starts great but looses power after 10-15 min and if you give it gas it dies. let it cool and it runs great for another 10-15min. trimm has less than 5 hours


You have a clogged gas cap. Try this: The next time you run your trimmer and it starts to die, loosen the gas cap. It should start running again. It sounds too good to be true, doesn't it?! Well, give it try. Clear the breathing holes form debris, or buy a new gas cap.

It dies when you give it gas.but it startes fine


When it starts it is running on the idle jet and when you open the throttle it is being starved of the correct gas/air mixture. Sounds like you have a blocked air filter or fuel restriction. Take off the air filter and try to start it opening the gas slowly. If that doesn't work, clean the fuel tank filter and try again.If that doesn't work, remove the carburettor and clean it with carb cleaner paying attention to any fuel or drilled holes in the body. Blow it off with compressed air and replace it. Ensure fuel tank has clean gas.
