Question about Garden

Open Question

To all the people trying to fix Ryobi poulan or any type of low end weedeaters, you must not buy these products they are not made to stand up. I have owned many trimmers in the commercial lawncare business,Stihl, Echo,etc.You can purchase a residential model for around $150.00 which are way more reliable and are well built and furthermore if you have an issue with these products you simply call the dealership or place of purchase and they will help you immediately. You get what you pay for!!!

SOURCE: Ryobi Electric string trimmer

TJ, I've had the same problem since yesterday and I found the solution (lots of googling - that's how I found your post BTW).
It turned out that the switch malfunction is a common problem.

The part number for the FA3-4 switch is:

ut41002a-36 ("switch assembly")

Available here (thru Amazon):
http://factorylawnandgarden.com/product/553902/B000PLVCX8/SWITCH_ASSEMBLY_UT41002A_36/

It's a Homelite part, which is identical to Ryobi.

Here is the manual showing it (part 6):
http://www.m-and-d.com/pdfs/ryobi_tool/RY41002.pdf

Here is the thread with the solution:

HTH,
Adi

SOURCE: Stihl weedeater starts but won't run at high speed

This sounds like a timing problem.
It is too far retarded, and needs advancing a couple of thou.
There you go:)

SOURCE: the pull cord on my poulan pro weedeater will not

You have a broken recoil spring. Dis-assemble (pull-off) the recoil housing and check for proper dog alingnment, broken spring, or something jammed between recoil sprocket and engine block.

What would be wrong with my weedeater when i press the primer bulb gas will start to come out of the gas cap ?


You could have a clogged tube from the primer into the carb, but it also sounds like the fuel tank is overfilled.

The spline for my Poulan TE475 WeedEater comes out during start up and wraps around the shaft. I use .080 round spline. It started recently to do this.


The string head on these units is very poorly designed. There is hardly anything in the head to retain the line. I suggest removing the stock string head and going to Home Depot and getting a replacement Universal type head or one for the Ryobi or Homelite They are basically interchangeable. Check the length available on the shaft end (threaded part) after removing the head.Use a large wrench or pliars to hold the dust cap when you unscrew the head. If you feel the driveshaft turning, don't continue turning head or you will break the flex driveshaft.

Bought new e3 plugs for weedeaters and cant find gaps for them i have a Featherlite 20cc Fl20 and a Ryobi 31cc 700R


The gap for the Weed Eater 20cc engine can be set @ .025". The larger engine Ryobi 31cc/32cc class can be set @ .030" Either engine would operate within that .005" range and I know a 32cc Poulan calls for a .030" gap.

How do you fix a broken gas line to gas tank that was previously glued but does not hold and leaks gas to a Poulan GE21 weedeater?


Buy a new gas tank! Are you serious! Or buy a new weed eater, if you can't live without this one, those models are cheap, don't waste your time.

These inexpensive trimmers are designed to be "throw-aways". It usually isn't cost efficient to repair something like this. Do yourself a favor and buy higher quality such as Echo. It will pay for itself and you will have less headaches.

Craftsman weedeater wont start


The problem that I had with my craftsman was that I found that there was a tube in the fuel tank that goes to the carb, & at the other end - inside the tank, there was a small screen with maybe a weight on it (to keep it in the gas no matter what position the weedeater is in). Mine was plugged up and i went to the saw shop and got a generic hose & end with the screen deal & changed them out. Solved my problem. Rick
