SOURCE: Trimmer is flooding.

It appears that the carb is not functioning properly. Sounds like the needle is not seating properly. It will need cleaning or repair.

I can't get it started and I"m following directions on side of machine.


Those direction are not accurate all the time, I usually prime mine 4-6 times. put mine on full choke with the trigger pressed and pull 1 time any more will usually flood it, If you have the choke that kicks off after you press the trigger, put the choke back on to half and pull the cord pressing the trigger, Then pull the cord until it starts without pressing the trigger. As before if you press and hold the trigger during the start it will flood these trimmers..This should start the trimmer. You may have to let the trimmer set for about 15 min if it was flooded.

Trimmers floods its self, will not stay running


It is unusual for a trimmer to flood itself. It is common to have a lean condition diagnosed as rich.
So lets start by seeing if its lean or rich. Get unit running and apply as much throttle as possible and keep unit running then slowly close the choke. If unit starts to run better as choke is closed then it is lean. If unit dies immediately and is hard to start again it may be flooded.
4 possible reasons for flooding...
1. piece of debris in inlet needle, needle lever adjusted too high
2. adjustment screwd turned too far out
3. exhaust screen clogged
4. low compression
If unit has a stuck inlet needle it will flood while engine is off and be very difficult to start- remove fuel source and/or turn adjustment screws all the way in and pull rope until unit starts ( 4 or 5 times)
clean the carb, screws should start at 1 and 1/2 turns out on the low and 1 turn out on the high.
clean the screen.
If the unit has low compression it is not worth repairing- the cost of repair will exceed the cost of replacement.

It acts like it is flooded, starts with choke off and throttle depressed. runs until carb runs out of gas then dies


Yes, Your carburetor sounds like it needs cleaned. Or you may possibly need to purchase a carb. kit for your trimmer if the cleaning doesn't do any good. When cleaning the carb. use a Den Tek Brush, (teeth cleaning brush), to clean the small ports. Also, check the small screen in carb. Can get clogged easily.

Starting Still FS55 Trimmer


try leaving the trimmer in direct sunlight for a while and then try starting it. placing the trimmer in direct sunlight will warm up the spark plug. if it does start then it might be that spark plug is getting to be weak and may need to be replaced.

Starting issue with 323l 2 stroke trimmer


Clean the carburator, check fuel stems making sure they're not screwed in to far or bent. Buy a new choke assembly and new fuel filter.
