Sounds like you need to adjust the carb. Remove the caps from the carb. Turn both screws clockwise until all the way seated. Start the trimmer and while running begin to back out the screws slowly until the trimmer is running strong but is smooth. Once you have the carb adjusted you can put the caps back on or you can discard.
Good luck!

I got a Tory Bilt weed eater the Model-TB2OCS and I just put in new fuel linds and a new fuelter.

Verify that the new gas lines are on the carb correctly and the bulb is holding gas. If that is ok then the carb is needing to be rebuilt because one of the jets is plugged up or both. If you pour gas in the carb and it starts and runs for a short time then the carb is probably the problem. You can buy a rebuilt kit for them cheap.

Trimmer won't prime to start

Look inside the tank. Some units have a stone inside that blocks the fuel line when it is tipped a certain way. Might be what's happening here.

Having troble with carburetor will run sometime other times it wont cleaned put a new carb kit in it still having same problem run some time there is a line could as ice when it is runnig but that line...

Could be bad or spoiled gas, did the carb have varnish deposits when you rebuilt it? If so there could be junk in tank and it feeds in to carb and blocks fuel line. If any dirt in tank, remove it and rinse it out with clean gas then purge line to carb and then replace. Anytime fual dries in tank it creates bits of varnish that slowly break off walls and clog fuel filters, lines and carb orifice.

Replaced fuel line ,rebuilt carb replaced spark plug

Is there gas in the tank? Sorry, but sometimes simple things escape us.

Also... is your fuel old? Does it maybe have a lot of water in it? Before you do anything else, try again with a full tank of fresh gasoline. THEN try the rest of this if it still won't stay running.

The problem you describe is VERY indicative of a fuel problem - no fuel getting to the carburetor, or not enough fuel getting into the cylinder from the carburetor. Try pulling the fuel line off the carburetor to see if fuel comes out quickly. If not, there's an obstruction in your tank.

If plenty of fuel comes out quickly, then the problem is in that rebuilt carburetor; sometimes a rebuilt one comes back misadjusted or incorrectly reassembled.

What will cause newish sears 27cc string trimmer only run on full choke?

If the trimmer has been sitting for a long time it is probably the carb needs to be rebuilt. Before doing that check the plug and be sure you are getting fire. Be sure nothing is blocking the fuel filter in the tank. Be sure exhaust or muffler is not plugged, with only 5 hours on the trimmer I wouldn't think that is the problem. Sound more like something in the carb. You can look on you tube to see how to rebuild the carb if you have not done it in the pass it is fairly simple to do.

Why does my 8N Ford tractor die at about half throttle?

Sounds like it might be starved for either air or fuel. Have you made sure there is full gas flow from the tank to the carb? Also recheck the needle valve regulating gas flow into the carb. May be that a speck of trash is partially plugging that flow to carb. Should have in-line fuel filter (add on) in addition to the bowl 'filter

Have you checked that your float is working properly in the carb? If it is sticking with the plunger shut it will block fuel inlet regardless of having fuel supply?

Have you checked to see if there is definitely fuel in the line at the carb when it's acting up?

Have you made sure that there is still spark when it quits running? You could have something that is grounding out when it warms up and makes it quit firing that while you 'fuss' with gas issues, cools enough to spark then fails again. Hard to say without more details. Also are you sure there isn't a clogged fuel filter in the tank, carb-inlet or inline somewhere?
