Open Question

Have a Ryobi SS30, it was running great and just died. It will not start now. Tried a new plug. But it doesn't seem to fire. I did use the recommended gas oil mix. The piston still works and I cannot hold my thumb over the plug hole while pulling the cord. Seems to have good compression but I don't have a compression gage. Any ideas?

Hello:

Are you Sire you Used the Correct Fuel Mix Ratio?
Remove the Muffler and Look Into the Exhaust Port.
Is the Piston Scratched and Gouged or is it Smooth like Glass?
If Smooth like Glass, then Check the Carburetor for Trash.
If Scratched and Gouged, then the Wrong Mixture was Used and the Engine is Trashed and will Require a New Piston and Jug (Cylinder) Assembly (a new unit will be cheaper than the parts to repair this unit) for the Unit to Run again.
Hope this Helps.

Good Luck

Fuel mixture ratio for Ryobi SS300 weed eater


Are you sure about the model number? I see several 30CC engine string trimmers by Ryobi. Two are the Ryobi RY30040B (SS30) and a RY30544 (SS30).

For both of these models, mix a high quality 2-cycle engine oil at 2.6 oz. per gallon of gasoline to pour into the gas tank. This ratio is used in several other Ryobi string trimmer models. Many Ryobi product manuals are available here: https://www.ryobitools.com/power-tools/support/manuals . Most Ryobi gas powered and 40V battery-powered tools will have a model number that starts with RY. The 18 V battery powered models often start with a P.

I hope this helps. If you add a comment with the actual model number, I may be able to provide more information.

Ryobi ss30 weedeater not starting after repair,to the primer bulb


Follow the instructions exactly. If it won't start, take out the spark plug to see if it is wet, or dry. If it is too wet, the motor may be flooded. If it is completely dry, you have to figure out why it's not getting gas. I am assuming you are pressing the bulb the recommended number of times, and that there is gasoline in the bulb, providing some resistance to your pushes with your thumb.

Ss30 won't idle after starting


Hi Steve,

You will need to disassemble the carburetor and spray with carb.cleaner. Make sure the small screen in the carb. is free of debris. Use a Den Tek Brush, (http://www.drugstore.com/products/prod.asp?pid=165357&catid=1152), to clean the small portals in carb. Reassemble and start.

(NOTE: If the cleaning doesn't work, then buy a carb. kit and replace all appropriate parts.)

If you need further assistance, just let me know.

You need to rebuild the carburetor. You will need to go to an outdoor power & equipment store of some kind to get a carburetor kit for your specific trimmer. It will come with various gaskets, (some of which you won't use), a needle valve, and a small screen that goes in the carb. Replace all old parts with new. New primer bulb is sold seperately. When you have the carb. apart, you will also need to clean the small ports with a Den Tek Brush (used for cleaning teeth). Use carb. cleaner when cleaning.
