Hi Suzanne:
So our question to you is," if you push the primer 4 or 5 times, turn the ignition switch on, turn the choke lever on, and pull the start cord, does it run? If it does, there's no problem.
If it doesn't,
- check the spark plug
- check the fuel filter
- make sure you have fresh gas in the tank
- check to make sure there is spark at the plug
- check to make sure the carb is not gummed up
How long has it been since it was running?

Make sure you pre fill the filters with clean fuel. Locate the hand primer usually near the fuel lift pump. Unscrew the top till it pops up. Pump repeatedly until it gets hard to pump. You can crack the injector lines while pumping till fuel comes out or have someone crank the engine with the starter while you continue to pump the hand primer. Make sure after it's running the pump is pushed all the way down and tightened back up

New primer bulb but engine won't prime


remove and clean the carby. clean out the main jet. ensure that there is nothing stopping the primer circuit from working. There are two valves under the primer bulb and a spring. when you push in the bulb fuel is squirted into the manifold When you take your finger off the bulb the spring pushes it out and new fuel is drawn past a valve to fill under the bulb. Pushing in again closes that valve and opens a second valve which allows the fuel into the manifold again

TRIMMER STOPS RUNNING AFTER A COUPLE OF MINUTES


Check the air filter isn't dirty.
If the fuel line is a flexible type which moves around inside the tank, check it is able to move freely because if you are cutting at awkward angles, the end of the line can end up above the surface of the fuel, **** in air and airlock the line.

The fuel lines may have become airlocked.This can happen if the tank is run dry. If the trimmer has a primer bulb, alternatively press it several times and then try to pull start the engine with choke on. Repeat this several times. The primer bulb should feel spongy and fill with fuel.
You can eliminate this as the problem by fully filling the tank.
Check whether there is a one way check valve on the tank. This vents air into the tank as the fuel leaves for the carburettor. Sometimes particles of dirt can get stuck in this.

Vapor lock


The tank vent is a bronze plug inserted into the tank casting--the caps are not intended to vent. Check the fuel filter for plugging and the condition of the fuel lines and primer bulb. You should be able to fill the bulb with fuel after several pushes of the primer bulb. Have the fuel lines been changed? Hope this helps!

Fill with gas and prime won't start repeat 2 or 3 times and it will start


Try giving the primer quick jabs not slow pushes. Also make sure to cover the small pin hole on the primer if it has one. It may just need a new primer. it could not be sealing right or have a small wrip. Hope everything works out for ya.

Just keep pushing the primer til it starts to get hard to push.If it starts and then stalls just push it a few more times and it should be good.Hope this helps.Good luck.

Primer bulb won't re-fill.


Not sure about your particular set-up, but there is usually two fuel lines running from the fuel tank. One goes to the carb and the other goes on a fitting on back of the primer bulb. The primer bulb will have a second fitting with a line going to carb. Sounds like either a clogged or leaking fuel line to me. Hope this helps and good luck.
