From you manual:
Two-stroke oil
For great results and performance use HUSQVARNA two--stroke oil, which is specially formulated for our two-stroke engines. Mixture 1:50 (2%). To maximize the life of your trimmer, you may choose to use a high quality synthetic oil formulated for two-stroke engines. Mixture 1:50 (2%). Never use two--stroke oil intended for water-cooled outboard engines, sometimes referred to as outboard oil. Never use oil intended for four-stroke engines.
WARNING! Always ensure there is adequate ventilation when handling fuel.

1 gallon of premium fuel to 2.6 ounces 2-cycle oil. 2.6 ounce pre-measured containers are available at most chainsaw outlets.

You can find your manual here:

I have a ryobi rlm140sp, when I release the engine run handle the engine won't stop.. It slows down a little but keeps going.. I have to stop it by push ******* the throttle lever on the carb linkage..

You probably have grass and muck jammed up in the mechanism that engages the Self-propelled wheels. Take the cover off and clean it out. Then lubricate the cable at both ends with any spray lubricant. You may have to lubricate it for the next few days or weeks to get it to start working properly again.

Good Luck!

Unit overheating

I had this same problem. It got to the point where mechanisms inside the shaft actually melted. I took it to a repair shop where they were able to fix the problem, or so I thought. A little while later the entire shaft separated from the handle one day while I was trimming. Upon investigation, two small pieces of plastic on the inside of the handle are what held the shaft and handle together. The overheating problem melted these plastic pieces off. I now need to order an entirely new handle assembly, which is roughly $7 from Ryobi's website.

I recommend that you have your brush cutter serviced immediately before the problem progresses as it did with me. It is likely already too late.

I am very displeased with this machine. I purchased it brand new in 2006 and it has been constant problems since then. It is billed as being able to sufficiently cut through thick brush, but in reality cutting brush seems to damage the machine. After this experience I will likely never buy another ryobi product. The craftsmanship is very poor.

1 Answer

I can't restart my Ryobi cutter once it's been running.

This is because Ryobi uses a loose fit on their piston and cylinder. As the cylinder heats up it grows in size causing the compression to drop.
when the cylinder cools the cylinder shrinks and you regain your compression.

Another possibility is that you are boiling yoour gas causing a vapor lock. This also goes away once the unit cools.

Line continues to advance and wrap around axle

I used a file to sharpen the line cutter which controls the amount of line. After sharpening the small cutter on the trimmer, the length of the line is now under control and now my trimmer works just fine.
