Hi there, takes a bit of working out without a manual, but try this....take bottom half of trimmer line spool off, get piece of spool line approx 60 cm, long and thread through centre holes, ( bit fiddly but ) pull line through until you have equal length on both sides, dont try and wind it up onto the spool, just put ends of line through outside cover holes, then lock spool in place in other half. now simply wind the knob at the end and the line should retract into the spool., sounds complicated but really isnt, best regards and good luck, Philbee

SOURCE: nannie what can be wrong with my power devil

Check air filter, check screen in bottom of fuel tank,
New spark plug and also check the spark.
If there is a weak spark, the coil may need to be replaced.

If you have good spark, clean air filter, and clean fuel tank screen, then the carberator will need to be pulled of and cleaned out with solvent

SOURCE: I have a Mountfield bvs153 petrol mower. The

It fails after it has 10 minutes to warm up right?

I think you should run it till it fails and then test it for spark.

My guess is that your coil is going bad and heat just triggers the failure. After a while even cooling down wont help.

The good news. If you need to replace the coil its a pretty simple job that can be done with a few hand tools and a new coil. It shouldnt be too expensive either. 25-35 dollars for a new one if your shop around online or go to Ebay.

The only thing special you need to do once you have removed the recoil cover and removed the old coil is to take a piece of thin cardboard *(I actually recommend the box the coils usually come in. But a playing or business card will do) Put this paper between the coil and the flywheel to set the coil gap. Tighten on the screws and then pull out the paper. Put the recoil cover back on and you are done!

Good luck and be careful.

Hi benrufi...


Sounds like you have dirt/debris in your carburetor jets,fuel passages or a diaphgram that is becoming non-flexible.
Be sure to check your fuel tank for water and dirt/debris, if there is water/debris then you need to clean your tank.
Also check you fuel line condition after a while they will degrade and need replacment.
If you do replace your fel lines be sure to draw on a piece of paper the routing of the fuel lines for later attachment to the correct connection
Make sure you are getting spark at the spark plug, to do this:
Remove your spark plug and check to be sure you are getting fire at the spark plug.
You do this by grounding the plug on the head of the engine and pulling the crank rope, if you are getting spark then:
Check/Clean/Replace your fuel filter if you have one, normally they are located in the fuel tank of weedeaters.
When you remove your fuel lines from the carburetor be sure to make a drawing to how the lines are connected to the carburetor.
Normally the big line will be the line the fuel filter is connected to inside of the tank.The smaller of the two lines is the return to the fuel tank from the carburetor after it is pumped thru the carburetor by the primer bulb.
Also make sure you are using fresh fuel...and oil mix if your using a two cycle mower or weedeater with the oil to the right mixture and not too much oil as it can cause hard starting.
If the mower/weedeater is over a couple of years old, then I 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.
Sounds like you will need to clean the carburetor or replace your carburetor internal rubber parts like the diaphgram and O rings.
I recommend that you use a laquer thinner type cleaner to clean and dissolve the laquer build-up in the float and needle jet passages.
Be sure to remove all plastic and rubber parts before using the laquer thinner because it can dissolve the plastic parts and render them unuseable.
Be sure to use compressed air to blow out all the fuel and air passages.
Be careful when blowing out the passages, because there are sometimes small rubber type seats in the bottom of some of the passages.
Sometimes you can get by with priming the carburetor or using starting fluid 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.
Keep in mind that the float (if you have one) for the carburetor must be level when you go to reassemble the carburetor or follow the instructions you get with the carburetor kit.
When you clean your carburetor and remove the jet screws, you will first need to lightly seat the jet screws.
But before you lightly seat the jet screws count the number of turns it takes to seat the jet screws from their original position.
Be sure to mark the turns down on a piece of paper.
That way when you put the jets back in, you know to lightly seat them first and then turn them back out to their orginal position before you started.
Once you have your carburetor rebuilt that should solve your problem.

Starting up Ryobi Petrol Strimmer


full choke on , push petrol bubble 5 times then pull starter cord., with luck it will kick in to life after a 20/30 secs put on half choke , run again for 30 secs the no ckoke.

The main problem with Ryobi products is that they flood very very easly. So the more time you try and pump petrol into the carb the more it will flood . If that happenes then choke off and switch off and then just pull starter cord for about 30 secs then switch on and it could start if not prime it again as above good luck

Ryobi Weed Wasp starts but cuts out after 2 to 3 seconds.


Sounds like it is running on the prime. Check the fuel filter in the tank and if it looks clogged or dark, replace it. If that is not it, now is the time to consider a carburetor clean and rebuild, with a replacement of fuel lines and primer bulb. Today's ethenol in gas is murder on small engine soft components.

Qualcast petrol 35s mower will only operate with choke fully open, closing the choke causes the engine to cut out. Mower has been operating fine until now following a full service. What is the likely...


The chole is only ment to be used to prime the engine on cold start up, the engine is supposed to be run with the choke in the normally open position.

Hi, Mum has a wtd wanrite mtt model 548/12hp mower ride


Hi this sounds like there is a spot of dirt in tne fuel system
you will need to dismantle the carburettor which is quite straight forward (be careful not to lose any screws or gaskets
guive the carburettor a good rinse in neat petrol/gasoline and blow out any debris that may be there.
re assemble the carburettor and prime with fuel and you should then be ok.
One other thought if you have found that the motor runs fine without being on the grass (eg it doesn't cut out after a minute or two) then it could be that you have the cutting blades set too low for your first cut. To raise the blade adjust the height of the wheels. Always start cutting with a high setting especially if the lawn hasn't been cut for a while.

hope this helps

14" Ryobi petrol chainsaw will only run for 10 seconds


You are on the right track. Keep priming which indicates the fuel mixture is too lean to run. In other words the fuel line is partially clogged up. A drop of water on the gas tank would cause this problem. The fuel is fed on the suction basis. So clean up the fuel tank, (disassembly the carburator) reservoir, needle, float, offrice and fuel filter. A can of carburator cleaner (spray one) is a big help.

Runs only briefly after priming


Yes, Depending on how old your trimmer is, one of two things is wrong. Either the carburetor just needs a very good cleaning, or you need to purchase a carb. kit and replace the small screen, gaskets, and needle valve. It would probably be good idea to do both if your trimmer is more than three years old and if you have never replaced parts on carb
