I have a featherlite that will not run

I have a featherlite le gas blower by Weedeater. My problem is that it is not getting gas. I have rebuilt the with a carb. kit, done all the checking, etc.. I can choke it and pull start it but no gas appears on the plug and it will not hit. It has a good spark. I can squirt gas into the cylinder and it will run until this burns up.I am just about ready to pitch it. HELP?

Does it have a primer bulb? If so, check it for cracks, also check the fuel lines and the uptake filter in the fuel tank which may be clogged, check all the seals of the carb inder a magnifier to check for dirt or cracks...this is going to sound stupid but are you sure you put the carb back together correctly?

My weedeater 150 mph starts hard and barely runs at full throttle. I put in new gas, plug, and clean air filter. Please help. John


One cause of such a symptom could be an obstructed exhaust. Make sure the outlet of the muffler is not obstructed (ex. dirt dobber nest), also check the exhaust port by removing the muffler.

Weedeater featherlite seized shaft


Hello,

If you are talking about your crank shaft being stuck, there is nothing you can do that will work for the long haul. Usually what happens to cause this problem is running straight ( no oil added to fuel) gas to these 2 cylce engines. When you get a "lean seizure', the engine slowly loses power then quits. If you leave it alone for a while, the pull rope will be harder but it will start. The second tome it does this..........well your done. time to buy a new one. Sorry.

What is the gas/oil mixture ratio for the featherlite gas weedeater?


its a 40:1 ratio. remember to never tap the tap-n-go too hard or it will bend the shaft, and make the head hot to the touch, and eventually will melt the inside. And always keep fuel stabilizer in the gas, because if you dont, especially in winter and fall, it will clog the carb so you have to keep pumping the throttle to keep it running and you have to run it on half choke all the time


good luck!
