Poulan Pro gas weedeater surges and dies

Poulan Pro gas weedeater surges at a steady throttle setting when held in a normal upright position (trimmer head parallel to the ground). Unit dies when turned on its side for edging.
I know it's either fuel or carburetion, but can anyone get me a more specific answer?

SOURCE: Poulan 17'' Gas Weedeater keeps dying!

Hello su2yak2:

From your Description it Sounds like the Exhaust Port or Muffler is Restricted with Carbon Deposits, the Carburetor Metering Pump Actuator Gap is Incorrect.
>>The Following is a Basic Instruction File for Doing a Diagnostic on the Engine for this Problem. Any Input is Appreciated.
>>**Remove the Muffler and Make Sure the Exhaust Port is Clear.
>>If it is, then Try to Start the engine with the Muffler Off.
>>If it Starts and Runs Properly, then Clean the Spark Arrestor Screen in the Muffler or Replace the Muffler if Required.
Is the Fuel Line from the Fuel Filter Staying Full of Fuel?
The Carburetor Metering Jet Actuator is Set so the Pump Diaphram Dowl is Just Touching the Actuator Arm. These Components are Located Under the Cover with 4 Small Screws Holdong it to the Carburetor Body.
Please, Do Not Hesitate, If you Hit a Snag or this Does Not Correct the Problem, I am Here if You Require More Assistance.
Hope this Helps. Let me Know What Happens, Please. May the All Mighty Bless You and Yours. Be Safe and Be Happy. Thanks.

Good Luck

Respectfully

Out the box.Cranks and runs on cold.when you give it full throttle and knock it off fast idel try to let it idel it die's.After u use it a few min. it die's and want start back till it cools.


This is a common problem out of the box for weedeater products. This simply needs a carb adjustment which is not something the consumer can do (requires a special tool), You will need to take this to a weedeater dealer near you to get it done, it's covered under the warranty.

Poulan pro weedeater will not start without starting fluid and wont accelerate after starting Once started the first time it is easy to restart and idles fine, just cant accelerate the motor without it...


Your carburator is clogged.
1st make sure you have FRESH gas.
Empty and clean the fuel tank
Remove and disassemble the carburator and soak it in fresh gas for about 15 minutes to disolve any gunk.

Using a can of small carburator cleaner ( available at Lowes, Home Depot etc.) blow out all the ports.
reassemble and refuel with clean fresh gas
The little carbs clog easily

Weedeater dies when you open choke


After you start it and are in the second stage of the choke (half choke ) let it run for awhile until it warms a bit then try openning choke and going to full throttle.
