SOURCE: My weedeater won't run in 'run'.
Sounds like the carburetor needs adjusting. The owners manual should show you how to adjust the carburetor. If not, I would take this to the place of purchase and ask them to repair or replace it.
It should be under warranty for at least 2 years. I have had the same problem and when the carb would not adjust to run properly. I took it back and got a new one . This was at lowes and they were really great about it. If you decide to return it, clean it up real good.
In california we have different regs on outdoor power equipment and can adjust the idle only. The carbs are different for the rest of the US.
They can usually be adjusted, If not take it back. You deserve to get what you pay for without problems like this.

SOURCE: Weedeater does not stay running
its possible. i could see it being that the carb diphrams are not pumping enough fuel to the carb, the filter screen in the carburetor has a varnish glaze on it or plugged and could be the jets are partiall plugged.

We have a Ryobi gas weed eater. We can get it started but it doesn't stay on. I took it in to get it fixed and he said it was the primer switch, which he replaced, but we are still having the same problem.
Can you help us or refer us to a Ryobi repair store? We live in Phoenix, Arizona but can go to any repair store in Glendale, Tempe, Phoenix, Mesa, Scottsdale, wherever in Arizona. Thank you. Sally

This sounds like a fuel starvation problem. These units use temperamental little diaphragm carburetors which can develop assorted ills and problems. Sometimes, the problems stems from debris in the carb, fuel tank, fuel filter, or inside the carb where there is another very fine filter. You have stated that it runs 30 seconds, but I don't know if it is IDLING for that period or running at speed for that period. At any rate, check the in-tank fuel filter, ALL fuel lines, and if you can remove the fuel pump cover on the carb (it does NOT have a vent-hole), and check inside where the little round fine wire mesh screen is. Check it for debris.
If all the above are OK, then the carb may just require a small adjustment. The problem here being the type of screws used to adjust the Low and High speed mixtures on the carb. Some have splined heads, some have Pac-Man shaped heads, some have D shaped heads, and some have Double D shaped heads. Older ones have conventional slotted screw heads. On the non-conventional ones, you can use automotive type wire terminal spade connectors. Before you put them on though, you need to note the exact position of the mixture screw you are going to adjust. After that, tap the connector onto the head of the screw. If you use a female spade connector (22 gauge or so), then the end of a small flat blade screwdriver will fit the spade and you can turn the screw. I will refer you to an excellent Zama (probably your carb) carburetor adjusting tutorial now.
Try these things and feel free to post back. We will continue to try to help with your issue.
