Question about Husqvarna Forest & Garden 125l 18" Gas Trimmer

1 Answer

Husquvarna 125L Won't stay running

I have only used this for about 20 hours. It is getting harded and harder to start and as soon as it gets a little warm it quits. It will usually run 15 minutes now but is getting to be a shorter and shorter period before it quits
I use the same gas oil mixture in 2 other pieces of equipment that are working fine. I have ensured the air filter is clean and the exsauhst is clear.

Check the gas cap vent. If it's clogged, it will cause these symptoms. This problem tends to be more acute if the tank is fulll.

These symptoms are also typical of a leakng crankshaft oil seal. On a small 2-cycle, this needs to be gas tight. If it is not, loss of primary compression will result, causing your symptoms.

Overfill oil


Sounds like the engine is tired. Blue smoke is oil burning. Hard starting is oil on the spark plugs and/or low compression. This also can be due to someone adding too much oil.
Sometimes, the carburetor Needle valve hangs u pa bit and the Crank case oil gets mixed with gas so now the oil level is high. Too much oil in a motor is bad too, that would cause theblue smoke too.

Why did my task force 83691 compressor just stop working? Won't start.


Sounds like you blew the fuse. It takes a little 3 amp fuse. Also, this compressor only has a 33% duty cyle, meaning it shoud not be run more than 20 minutes per hour. Another thing, avoid using drop cords. If neccessary to use one, use a 12 guage cord no longer than 25 feet. Good luck!

My bike pops and ***** and wont stay running. bent valves?


The KX450 does not have a battery, it's an mx bike and so not equipped. The popping suggests a lean condition which can be caused by the hotstart cable (little lever on top or below your clutch lever) or the plunger seizing (follow the cable to the carburetor and it is under the threaded plastic 14mm black plastic nut and rubber boot. It is a common problem.
It would also explain your hard start condition.
Check the how free the cable slides, the adjustment and pull the brass plunger from the carb and clean it up.

I own a 5000 watt generators the problem is generator starts with choke on however as soon as i start closing the choke generator shuts down, any ideal on how to correct


Get a can of carburetor cleaner. Drain the gas. Mix small quantity of fresh gas & carb cleaner about 50/50. Run a little through (it might not start, but crank it enough to get some solution through the carb.) If it runs, that's great, run about half of your solution then turn it off for an hour. Then run the rest through. If it won't start, then after the hour add a bit of fresh gas to make the remaining solution about 90% gas and run this through By the way, running the carb cleaner through the air intake will not fix this problem, because the gumming of gas is in the fuel line, float valve, needle valve - not in the air stream. Running carb cleaner through the air intake is useful if the throttle is sticking.. Good luck, Vote if you found this helpful, Al K

Husquvarna 125L Weedeater .runs great until it gets warm. I adjusted the carb screw all the way in and then out 1/8 turn at a time. No change.


Hi akabigtruck..

Sounds as if you have trash/debris in your carburetor...
Check your fuel filter if you have one, normally they are located in the fuel tank.
Also make sure you are using fresh fuel...and oil mix if your using a two cycle mower or weedeater with the oil to the right mixture and not too much oil as it can cause hard starting.
If the mower/weedeater is over a year old, then I recommend that you buy and install a new carburetor repair kit,because the diaphragm will get hard and that will cause it to be hard to crank.
Sounds like you will need to clean the carburetor or replace your carburetor internal rubber parts like the diaphgram and O rings.
Be sure to use compressed air to blow out all the fuel and air passages.
Be careful when blowing out the passages, because there are sometimes small rubber type seats in the bottom of some of the passages.
Sometimes you can get by with priming the carburetor or using starting fluid and letting it run a few times like that and it will flush the gunk out of the jets,but most of the time you will need to rebuild the carburetor.
Keep in mind that the float for the carburetor must be level when you go to reassemble the carburetor or follow the instrucitons you get with the carburetor kit.
When you clean your carburetor and remove the jet screws, you will first need to lightly seat the jet screws.
But before you lightly seat the jet screws count the number of turns it takes to seat the jet screws from their original position.
Be sure to mark the turns down on a piece of paper.
That way when you put the jets back in, you know to lightly seat them first and then turn them back out to their orginal position before you started.

It sometimes won't start unless I jam the shift into park, now won't start at all! How do I fix this???


Neutral safety switch is out of adjustment and will just get worse as you have to jam it harder as time goes along. It's not hard to do, just a little time consuming to get at it.
Easiest way to get instruction is to go to your auto parts store and get one of the Haynes repair books for your model truck. They run about $20 but have step by step with pictures .

its not getting enough fuel. take the carb apart and clean it good. you can use a twist tie stripped off to clean the really fine holes or a wire brush wire. also you can burn the screen off in the carb. pull it out, burn off and use a drill bit or something similar to reinstall it.
