Why doesn't my Old Partner T240 grass trimmer work right?

if theres a clutch then thats your problem, the clutch shoes are designed to fly out and engage the clutch drum when the engine starts spinning faster. of course if the tick over is set too high then this can cause the clutch to engage!!

Ryobi CS30 Trimmer starts and runs in full choke and half choke but stumbles and stalls on run. Not up to full rpms when in full choke and half choke....

You probably need a slight carburetor adjustment. Try to turn the L mixture screw (the one near the bottom of the carburetor on the air filter side, closest to the engine) 1/8 to 1/4 of a turn counterclockwise. These mixture adjustment screws ( L and H) have odd heads on them and conventional tools won't turn them. I use an automotive type plastic wire connector (around 22 gauge) with a ring terminal end which I can hold. Tap the plastic end of the wire terminal connector onto the head of the screw with a small hammer and this will enable you to adjust the L screw. This adjustment will increase you high speed side and possibly allow it to run off choke in a regular manner.

My 32cc starts right up but as soon as i give it gas it

The low side carburetor adjustment screw needs to be turned counter-clockwise. Start by turning it 1/4 turn then test run. If your carb has plastic locks on the screws, they will have to be removed first. Most modern carbs require a special tool to adjust the jets. The tool can usually be purchased from your local repair shop.

My ryobi trimmer want hit a lick. The spark plug is firing. But will not hit. I tried a small spray of starter fluid in the carb and still nothing. Could this be the fly wheel is out of time ?

Try removing the air filter...hold throttle open and either squirt or pour about a teaspoon of FRESH fuel mixture into the carb sure that the fuel enters the cylinder through the throat....hold the throttle open and pull start handle and if you have spark it should start and run for a few seconds...if not you may have an electrical problem (weak magneto = weak spark ) ... if it starts and runs your problem may be in the carb (clean or rebuild) DO NOT use starter fluid to do this is too volatile and you may blow the head right off your machine...also check the four screws on the rear cover (the four screws above the gas tank) they may have loosened and are allowing an air leak at the rear of the crankcase. these covers are plastic and have a tendency to warp under the heat generated by the engine. There is a gasket between the cover and the metal crankcase, and if the cover is warped it may be letting air through into the case....can cause a no start situation. do a cursory inspection of your fuel lines , fuel filter, and the primer bulb and check tightness of the carb bolts as cracks here also allow air leaks in the fuel system. If you've been using starting fluid to try and start your engine you might also want to check the head gasket and front crank seal to make sure you haven't blown a hole in them...good luck...;-D

Pw 50 cc starts but wont stay started as soon as u go to

Are you aware the PW50 kill switch has a separate start and run position which will cause exactly that problem. it is a safety feature so the things cant be started with a full throttle and hurt the kids. If you already know about the switch sorry. but it still may be the problem if it is not contacting properly in the run position

How do you get the head off

Okay, your trimmer has a "bump-n-feed" line advance, so, in order to get the head off, take hold of the "button" and turn it counter-clockwise (lefty-loosey, righty-tighty), it will screw out and the head should slide right off...CAUTION...there is a coil spring under that head so when you are turning the button, hold the head so it doesn't fly off and hurt you...or you lose the spring.

Hope this helps you...let me know if you need more info.

How do you Replace string on the trimmer head spool

Take the spool off and turn it up side down take out the centre and wind the left side 6 times to the left and the right side 6 turns to the right then put the ends through the holes and refit to stud and screw on butter fly nut...
Dont try winding them both the same way as when you try to get more out 1 side will come out and the other will go inside so you will be back were you started

Cant get spool off Turning it anti clockwise. It makes a click noise, but wont undo.

Do not know which model you have but if curved shaft probably a Right Hand Thread which you should loosen by turning CCW. If a straight shaft trimmer probably a Left Hand thread. Many times the LH button will be Red in color. Could be the head of the screw is slipping in the button. If so remove the metal cover plate on the button to get to the bolt head. You will need to change the button out if this is the problem. The RH thread button is PN 308042002 and the LH thread button is PN 308042003.
