Weedeater blower will not prime

When i push the bulb, i hear air wooshing in the tank. i recently replaced the fuel pickup line... it ran fine. does the other line force air into the gas tank to make the fuel go up the fuel line?? how does the prime work?

The bulb is a two way valve. The inlet from the gas tank is shorter than the longer end, which goes to the carburator

Gas leaking everywhere. Yesterday it ran and today it is leaking gas when I prime it and try to start it. I have no idea where the gas is coming from on this ryobi weedeater. is this common?

The primer bulb sucks fuel from the tank to the carb. When the carb has enough fuel the remainder is sent back to the tank. When you replaced the fuel line did you use the exact length of line and did you re-install the filter. On some of the trimmers the filter is weighted and holds the line in the fuel. Good luck...Lee

You need to make sure you have connected the fuel lines up correctly to the bulb, they pull fuel from the carb and push it back to the tank not the other way round

The primer bulb's purpose is to PULL fresh fuel thru the fuel filter and gas line out of the tank into the carburetor, then to itself and then...PUSH any air/old fuel out to the fuel tank. If I am understanding what you say, you may be right. There are check valves in the primer bulb base that sometimes go bad and don't allow the proper flow. Check that fuel is being PULLED from the tank to the carb and that fuel/air is also being PUSHED back to the tank. Post back if need be. Sometimes (after a period of time) these carbs require a diaghram and/or rebuild kit.

I need a fuel line schematic for a WeedEater brand Featherlite Plus weedeater


Presuming the primer bulb is on top of the carb....Fuel filter line out of gas tank goes to the lower part if carburetor body. The other line (normally larger in size) coming out of the fuel tank goes to the primer bulb outlet on the top of carb.
If the primer/purge bulb is not on the carb, things are a little different. The fuel filter line out of the tank still goes directly to the carb, as the bulb will pull old fuel/air out of the carb allowing fresh fuel to flow in and pushes old fuel/air back to the fuel tank.
Fresh fuel in, old fuel out of the carb...you can hook up a piece of fuel line to the bulb and tell which one is pulling and which one is pushing..or depress it with your fingers on it...either way you can tell.

PRIMER BULB WONT PRIME


I would recheck the carburetor to make sure you put the diaphragms next to the carburetor and not the gaskets.
Please if it is not priming you may have the fuel lines hooked up wrong. Also check the fuel cap to make sure the vent assembly is there. If the tank is not venting, the tank will get a vacuum in it not allowing fuel to flow.

Good Day.

Replace fuel lines WeedEater FL 1500 Blower


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.

I re-tubed my trimmer and now the bulb won't prime


I had exactly the same problem. On my weedeater, there is a screen in the carb under the primer bulb that was dirty from the fuel line falling apart. After replacing the fuel line AND cleaning the screen, the primer bulb will move fuel and it runs great.
