Replace fuel lines WeedEater FL 1500 Blower

When I replace fuel lines in my WeedEater FL 1500 Blower. I removed old (broken) lines small parts remained in tank besides filter. Where do these attach to newly replaced fuel lines? one looks to be connector to connect two ends of same line. other looks like a filter.

On the FL1500:

  • The Smaller line goes on the Lower inlet tube on the carborater the other end goes to the gas filter inside the gas tank.
  • The Larger line goes on the upper outlet tube on the carborater the other end goes to a fitting that holds this tube from coming out on the gas tank .This tube is only for Air, it helps fill the primer bulb when pushed.
I hope this helps.
Mechs correct me if I have made a mistake.

The smaller line goes with the filter and into the bottom of the carb. Larger line is to prime or top of the carb.

The typical fuel line routingreplace fuel lines WeedEater FL 1500 Blower - 2.gif is:

One line (the one with the fuel filter in the end of it) comes out of the fuel tank2.gif and goes to the bottom fitting on the carburator. The second line comes out of the tank and goes to the bottom fitting on the primer bulb. The third section of fuel line goes from the top fitting on primer bulb to top fitting on carburator. Hope this helped and best wishes.

My blower has a problem that I don't know how to fix. The engine is hard to start. After priming the blower and pulling the cord 8-10 times it starts but only runs for about 30 seconds then dies. It has a W12 carbuerator. A guy at the store sold me the K10WAT kit which did not have adequate parts to repair the carbuerator. Does anyone know what kit is necessary to rebuild the carbuerator? Besides rebuilding the carbuerator, does anyone have other suggestions to fix the ~!@# thing!

Blower part stopped working. What could the problem be?

see the steps and fix it. GOD BLESS YOU

    Find the cause of the problem. This may be obvious: if the starter cord is broken, then obviously that's your problem. But if you simply have a blower that won't start and nothing apparent to cause the problem, it's time for a bit of investigative work.

  • 2
    Examine the starter mechanism. Is the spring in place? Is the rope wound tightly? If anything is coming apart in there, then your starter won't work properly, and you won't be able to start the machine.

  • 3
    Check the spark plug. If it is old or appears blackened or corroded, it may be keeping the blower from starting.

  • 4
    Check the fuel tank and fuel line. If the cap on the fuel tank is missing, cracked or failing to seal properly, or if you have a leak in the fuel tank, the lack of pressure in the fuel system will cause problems. Check the fuel line as well for any cracks, leaks or stoppage.

Fix the Problem
  • 5
    Repair the starter assembly by removing it from the body of the blower. You can take it to a repair shop to have it rebuilt for a small charge (usually less since you've already removed it), or you can repair it yourself by purchasing a new spring and starter rope, installing the spring and rewinding the rope. Then screw the assembly back into place onto the blower.

  • 6
    Replace the spark plug by unscrewing the old one, brushing away any debris and screwing in a new spark plug.

  • 7
    Replace the tank or line. This is the only way to repair leaks in the tank or line. Be sure you order the correct part (not just any tank will fit any blower) and the right size of fuel line (usually one of the smallest available). If you're not sure, call a repair shop and have the model and serial number of your machine handy. With this information, they can help you find the right parts.

if the choke needs to stay on to run it then there is a plugged jet in the carb

I have a Weedeater fl 1500 le leaf blower that won't run wide open. It will start, but it has to remain at one half to three quarter choke to remain running. Changing the throttle opening seems to make no...

Simple solution your weed-eater has a Walbro carb buy a rebuild kit and rebuild the carb and it will run like new, don't touch any screw settings on the carb. You can purchase from your local repair center just give them the number on your carb and they will give you the correct kit. Go to they have a video on just this issue. Good Luck.. Don't forget thumbs and feedback.

I bought this blower last week,i tilt it alittle and heard a rattle sound and now it wont start

Check the fuel filter in the tank and make sure the fuel line is connected to it. The carburetor may have inhaled some debris and/or small chunks of broken fuel line and need to be opened up and cleaned also. At this point, you would probably need to install a new fuel filter also.

I have a weedeater xt 200 trimmer. The parts in

The tube in the tank is the fuel pickup line and goes directly to the carburetor. You will need to get NEW fuel lines. Fish or shake the old parts out of the fuel tank after draining. Inside the tank will be a small length of smaller diameter fuel line that connects to the small fuel filter and there will be a small nylon line connector that is plugged into the end of the larger diameter fuel line which is the fuel return line from the primer bulb back to the fuel tank. That line ends just inside the fuel tank and is held there by the small nylon line connector. The other line (smaller diameter) needs some length inside the tank so it can flop around as you move the machine enabling it to always pick up fuel. 6" or so is about right from the hole in the bottom (or top) of the tank to the fuel filter. Buy long enough lengths of fuel line that they can be inserted into the tank and pulled thru the fill cap area and then have the parts put back on them and then cut to the correct length from the fuel tank to the carburetor and/or primer bulb. Buy about 1 foot of each size line needed. Small engine repair shops have it and sell it..not expensive.

Idles but dies when accelerated

Sounds like fuel flow restriction. Since you've replaced the fuel lines already try this....Remove and clean the carbureter needle valves and seats...Blow/**** out the inlet hose fittings ( should be 2 small brass fittings on the side of the carburetor) If you haven't replaced the lines completely (from inside the tank to carburetor) do that now.

Check the fuel lines for cracks/breaks. If they are o.k., then:

Youwill need to disassemble the carburetor and spray withcarb.cleaner.Make sure the small screen is free of debris. (Should beable to see daylight through it.)

Use a Den Tek Brush, (,to clean the small portals in carb. These portals can become blocked. Reassemble and start.

If the carb. parts are more than 4 years old, you may have to replace them.

If you need further assistance on:
1. Fuel line replacement or
2. Carburetor kit replacement

Just let me know.

check the fuek lines for hole and leaks, check the fuel filter and clean if necessary. remove the carbuerator and inspect the gasket; it should be soft and flexible, if it seems hard or brittle replace it. clean the carb with carb cleaner sray (available at any local auto parts store) and compressed air. make sure you get inside the small fuel rail holes. check the primer bulb for pin holes and seating/sealed properly. if that doesn't work have the carb repaired at a service center or replaced.
