My string trimmer will not start

My 2 cycle string trimmer will not start and if it does it stalls or runs rough. I have pulled and cleaned the plug and drained the fuel (I left the fuel in the tank last winter, my bad) I cleaned the air filter and checked the spark inhibitor screen which was fine. I put it all back together and put fresh fuel in the tank, pumped the primer bulb and it still won't start.

Possible solutions:
-Kill switch is shorted out-check the wire and connections.
-Buy a new plug.
-Primer bulb needs to be replaced.
-Fuel filter needs to be replaced, and it's located inside the gas tank so it's a bit tricky to replace.
-Try starting it without the air filter attached.

Is it possible an incorrect mix of gas/oil was used (or straight gas) which in turn ruined the motor?

Looks like oil and fuel is leaking or blowing from exhaust.


John - Husqvarna makes really good power equipment that seldom offers trouble. The unit you are talking about is a 2 cycle system, meaning you mix oil and gas together in lieu of having an oil sump at the bottom of the engine like 4 cycle motors have. First question, did you mix a bottle of One Mix 2 cycle oil to a gallon of regular gas to start off using your machine? If you did, then I would think your unit is badly flooded, which happens a lot with 2 cycle equipment. Try taking out the spark plug and see if the spark plug looks wet from too much fuel. If it is, leave the spark plug out for a day or so to allow the cylinder head to vent the gas fumes. Replace the wet spark plug with a new one and try to start the unit again. Here's a tip: If you do flood a 2 cycle piece of equipment (trimmer, chainsaw, blower, etc.) again, make sure the choke is off and hold the throttle trigger wide open. Pull the started cord several times until the unit starts to run. Keep holding the throttle wide open until it clears itself out. Remember, you run the equipment, it does not run you :-)

Husqvarna weed eater starts , but blows alot of smoke & then stalls out


Rod, Carb. may need adjusted, try loosening gas cap and start to see if cap vent plugged, there is a in tank fuel filter that you could fish out and remove to see if it is plugged. If still not running remove muffler and clean spark arrester screen, if screen plugged the trimmer will do this.
Check the attached links,instruction and guides, Good luck

I have the same model from Troy-Bilt. I have only had it about 4 or 5 months. Mine has started using a LOT of oil. I noticed a significant increase in temperature compared to my old Husqvarna 2 cycle. Mine does not completely stall, but it does start to sputter when it gets hot. I am going to take mine back to Lowe's where I bought it. So far I am VERY unhappy with the TBP6040.

Probably needs a carb kit, check main jet and main fuel inlet jet, is the spark crisp, fat and powerful, try running it with a borrowed coil as this may have an intermittent fault. Is fuel cap breather working or blocked, these small carbs are very sensitive. Make sure all is well with gaskets and diagrahms. Good luck the Yeti
