Weed wackier gas trimmer


didnt specify the make and model so generic answer ---check fuel mixture is correct --check the filter in tank is not plugging up--look for damaged / crack in fuel feed lines-look at spark plug --carb may need cleaning --exhaust port may need cleaning

Will not stay running


How dose it run with choke on Half? I would try adjusting adjusting air fuel mixture, but make sure you have clean air filter in it before any thing else.

Weed eater wont stay running


Here are a few things to check, that are solutions for your symptoms. Check, then clean or replace:
  • Fuel Filter - located in the fuel tank
  • Spark Arrestor - at muffler
  • Spark Plug
  • Carburetor - may need rebuild kit?

My gas trimmer starts but wont stay running


hello sir, my machine will only start when pumping primmer bulb or squirting fluid in the carburetor than stops. the fuel line has broken off, in most small carburetors this is a ongoing problem.old fuel will crystallize when left in tank for a long time.plugging up ports, fuel lines, small screen in carburetor.fuel lines will dissolve clogging carb.this is why it will run when the choke is on creating a vacuum to where there is fuel forced in the carb to rum,also the gas will evaporate leaving the oil behind clogging up carb.the thing to do is remove carb. and clean out,replacing gaskets or fuel line if necessary.use carb cleaner to clean out carb.make sure to make note where fuel line go.the fuel filter broke off of fuel line letting debris get in carb plugging it up.the muffler is known to clog up a lot on these machines where they want run. the compression should be 60 to 120 lbs any thing below 60 is junk. when adjusting the carb screws turn in all the way than turnout 1 1/4 turns turn in slow until machine runs also you need to check for spark by removing plug and grounding against engine to check spark, ok.a new spark plug would be a good ideal too , if you are going to make these repairs use new fuel line and filter,hope this helps,any comments welcome,thank you, !!

Have these unit been stored with fuel in them or sitting around for a long period of time? If so the carbs may need to be overhauled. Also check for a clogged fuel filter and vacuum test the fuel lines for cracks.
