Question about Poulan/Weed Eater No. Te475 952711797 17" Le Gas Trimmer/Edger

Open Question

Weedeater TE475... Ran perfect until yesterday. All of the sudden, it won't start and stay that way. Choke in full position - cranks and primes fine. Choke in 1/2 position (which is usally where it starts up and idles a few seconds until warm) - starts and dies immediatley. Choke off - Won't turn over at all. I can keep it running if I put the choke on full, crank it a few times then swith to 1/2 choke and before it has a chance to die, switch the choke back and forth between full and 1/2. Each position eventually starts to die, but when I swith back and forth it keeps it running. Help. Thanks

SOURCE: starts full choke dies out runs for a few min at half choke

First, you will need to check the fuel lines for cracks/breaks.

You will need to disassemble the carburetor and spray with carb.cleaner. Make sure the small screen in the carb. is free of debris. 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.

(NOTE: If the carburetor parts are more than four years old, and depending on the use, you will need a new carb. kit if the cleaning doesn't work.)

If you need further assistance, just let me know.

SOURCE: starts fine but when u close choke and give gas,the engine dies

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

How do you start the dcs642120


Put fresh fuel/oil 50:1 mix in the fuel tank. Turn on ignition, set fast idle and full choke. Prime the carb, if it has a pump bulb for that.

Holding saw so it can't move at you, pull the starter smartly for at most 5 times or until it "pops". If it pops, take choke off and pull starter until it starts.
Else, take choke off and crank it maybe 5 times until it runs, or go to full choke again for maybe 3 cranks.
Keep alternating sets of pulls with/without full choke until you get a pop, or give up. All the above is for the general case- shouldn't take many cranks for modern saws to get one running.

Pay attention for safety to how you hold the saw, like maybe with the rear of the rear handle located inside your right knee.

How come weedwacker tries to crank while on choke but when you move lever to 2nd position it tries to crank? but wont


When mine does that I go back and reprime repeating the process. It seems the gas does not feed up fully with the initial priming effort. Once it starts I move the choke lever quickly on way or the other to see if I can keep it running until it gets warmed up. Sometimes I have to adjust the choke setting even after it has run for a while.

What should I do with my husqvarna 130BT because I put in too much oil with the gas and it won't start?


First, you need to dump all of the fuel out of the gas tank, Preferrably into a gas container. If you know how much oil you dumped in, you can calculate how much more gas to add. You could also just dump the gas, re-mix some new gas and oil, whichever you prefer.

If you are comfortable doing this, remove the fuel lines going to the carberator and let them drain into a pan. Pump the fuel primer to purge the gas out of the carburator, and then re-install the fuel lines. This might help you get it started a little faster, but its not necessary. You can burn the old gas in the engine at it will be fine.

Next, remove and replace the spark plug. Its probably fowled out with too much oil. Keep a can of carb cleaner and a small wire brush handy, you may need to clean the spark plug a couple times. If it gets too dirty, you can replace the spark plug with a new one. Do not burn Carb Cleaner in your engine for long periods of time, it will damage the engine.

After you have installed the spark plug and put some correctly mixed gas in the tank, Try to start the engine again. There will be some residual fuel in the fuel lines going to the carberator, so you will need to burn off that gas.

If you can't get it to start, try these steps:
Choke off, throttle wide open, crank several times. (or let it sit in the sun for a couple hours) (this corrects flooding)
Prime carberatur, Choke full on, throddle idle position, crank until it fires once but does not start.
Choke half, crank until it fires again or starts.
If it starts skip this step: (Choke off, crank until it starts).
Keep the choke on half for about 10 seconds and let it idle.
Put the choke off and let the engine warm up for a couple minutes.
After warmup, test the throttle to see if it will run at full throttle (it may take some fluttering until the engine is fully warmed up)

Let the engine run at full throttle for a few minutes. The exhaust may be a little more blue-smokey than normal...this is the excess oil burning...totally normal and harmless.

Cannot get the brushcutter started, it has spark but doesn't want to go. Have forgotten the method of starting, eg. 10 prime pumps, five pulls with full choke but turned off, then half choke turn on...


Normal starting practice is always done with the ignition on, primer as many times as it takes to 3/4 fill the bulb, move choke to full closed, crank engine until it fires once, move choke to half if there is a half position, crank engine until it starts and runs, move choke to full off.

Weedeater gbi 20 leaf blower will not start, how do I start it and what could be the cause?


Start procedure is, switch igbition on, lever to full choke, pull until it fires once, do not continue pulling with full choke, move choke to central position, crank engine until it runs, once warm move choke to off, if it refuses to start, drain the fuel tank and re fill with fresh mix, remove spark plug and check for a spark by earthing the plug against the cylinder, if after many pulls the spark plug is dry, there is a blockage in the carb, remove the air filter cover, remove the two allen screws holding the carb on, remove the single screw securing the alloy pump cover, under the diaphram is a filter, replace this filter, rebuild and try again.

Weedeater XT 85T wont run


Check to see if your feul line is cracked or it is drawing air . Check your clamps that hold the lines on . One other thing you can check is to see if any bolts are loose that hold the carb on . Best of luck Ed.

I have a Ryobi trimmer and when I start it will not stay on


Here was my solution:
I was having problems with my ryobi cs30 weedeater also. It would start up fine on full choke, but i could not give it more than half throttle or ever take the choke off or it would stall out. I replaced fuel mixture, spark plug, spark arrestor/exhaust, fuel lines, cleaned carb, and still nothing! I was considering getting a better machine. Then i decided to play with the carb adjustments.(on my cs-30, they are two screws on the carb that have a "L" and "H" next to them) I dont think you can get the specialty tool for adjusting the carb unless you are a repair tech, so i just took a Dremmel tool with the circular cut-off wheel to the head of the specialty screws and made them into "flat-head" screws so i could adjust them with a regular screwdriver (if you dont have a dremmel too, get one!) (As i was cutting into the head of the screws, i also cut into the casing protecting the head of the screws that was in the way, this does not cause any damage to the unit, that casing is only there to keep "un-certified" people from adjusting it for themselves.)
Now to the easy part: The "L" screw adjusts the idle fuel mixture and the "H" screw adjusts the full throttle fuel mixture. turning the screws clockwise make the machine run leaner (less fuel) and counter clockwise makes it run richer (more fuel).
-I started out by turning each screw 1/2 turn counter clockwise and started it up, then as it was idling, i started adjusting the "L" screw as i was moving the choke position to run, after a few full turns counter clockwise of the "L" screw, it was idling perfectly in the run position, then i did the same thing the the "H" screw while holding down the throttle and i got it to run perfectly in the run position. Now it is running way better than it ever has. I hope this helps everyone.
Good Luck!

Try this sequence. Pump up the fuel bulb until it gets hard. There should be something equvilent to a fast idle setting, then hold in the primer(electric choke) and finally turn the key and crank. When it tries to start go easy on the electric choke. You may want to see if the electric choke moves freely.
