Question about Poulan WeedEater Hedge Trimmer 25cc Engine

2 Answers

I bought it refurbished, used it once. The 2nd

I bought a weedeater hedge trimmer refurbished and used it once. It ran like a champ and I put it away. The 2nd time using it some month later, it will only run with the choke open full. Very Rough, runs rich, black oil on the body and finger has to stay on the trigger. At 1/2 choke it stalls. I took off the blade and it did not help, runs the same. Any suggestions, Can you point me to a on line help page

With what you describe it sounds like it is running to hot with the oil being black. Think of it like your car. When was the last time the oil was changed, make sure it's the right oil for your unit. When was the last time it had a tune up, it sounds like one of your o-rings/gaskets are bad. Typically people who work on these use what ever is on hand. Try dumping out you gas and flush it out with flush cleaner then remix your gas and fill it back up. When you are not using it make sure you sit it down on some area, don't hang it up, if there is a leak inside it will flow through your unit causing it to flood. Remember all these fluids in your unit are very corrosive so you want them to stay in there appropriate tanks. If you let know the model I can provide you with more info, but I think this will for you.

Mix up some fresh fuel mixtutre. I mean go to the gas station and get fresh fuel and mix your two cycle oil with it. Sounds like old fuel mixture.
Several manufacturers have told us at class this year, that fuel over 30 days old is no longer good. Plus it may need some carburetor adjustments.

My 10 year old weedeater hedge trimmer ran fine last year when I put it away for the season. When I tried to start it this year it wouldn't even fire. I put fresh fuel mix in and a new spark plug and...


I would check for spark and check the fuel lines, especially if fuel is left in it. Also if fuel left in you will have to empty the lines and carburetor or pull it enough to clear. Another thing to consider is that if fuel was left in it that the carburetor may need a rebuild, replacing the diaphrams.

I hope this is helpful for you.

YES, this system relys on pressure and the ionic nature of gasonline to pull the fuel through the system. If the gas cap is off or damaged where a seal is no longer possible, try taping it up with duct tape and see if that helps

Brand new tanaka weedeater, ran fine for 10 minutes,


Loosen gearbox at the business end of the shaft. Turn the head slowly until it aligns itself with the driveshaft. Do the same thing with the engine side if this does not fix the issue. It sounds like the dealer did not assemble it correctly. I would take it back where you bought it and have them fix it under warranty.
