  • jimmeister Jun 04, 2008

    My ryobi gas trimmer has been used only one season. Now, I am unable to get it to start--at all. Any suggestions?

    I have the same problem....is this something indicative of Ryobi? I have cleaned spark plug, dumped gas, and pulled and pulled and pulled! Is it time to throw it in the trash?

    I have the same issue, just picked mine up from the mower shop in pieces I may add ( a long story) it needs an ignition coil kit.

Hi
I found that the plug that came with my unit had an intermittent fault (sparked sometimes, then not all) definately the plug in my case. And yet at first, seemed to start OK, progressively got worse.

OK so youve changed the plug! Now check for spark....Can you see the spark if you pull the cord a few times
(you have to unscrew the plug from the head but leave it connected to lead & rest the plug against the metal cylinder surface using a pair of pliers to steady it and so you dont get a small shock)

If youre getting visable spark when you pull the cord, suspect fuel feed blockage from carb, Test by: Prime the bulb & turn to full choke, pul the start cord, Is there petrol vapour/odour present within the cylinder with the spark plug removed.

Check also gauze air filter behind the roto choke knob is clear, on/off switch (could be damp wd40) Test compression put your finger over the open plug port, plug starter cord, should be a little pressure build up

Hope this helps
please rate my comments - thanks

Can not get my Ryobi gas trimmer to start. It is fairly new and have never had a problem. It is getting gas and I've changed the spark plug but still can't get it to start.


There are 2 stroke and 4 stroke Ryobi's. The most common non-spark problem is the coil. (at least for me) Is it getting spark???

My Gas Powered Ryobi String Trimmer (RY26500B) won't start. What should I try??


Here are the basics. You need: spark, fuel, air, compression, and timing to make it run. Clean the spark plug. Inspect the fuel lines. Are the hard/brittle? Do they connect to the filter in the gas tank? Clean the air filter. When the spark plug is out, put your finger over the opening and gently pull the rope. Do you have compression?
Most common repairs needed are usually fuel lines and carburetor work.

I have a Troy weekwacker, and after sitting this winter, it WILL not stay running. The only way to even get it to start is to load the thing with starting fluid, and then it only runs til it eats up all...


Have you changed the spark plug on this unit? If all else has failed, this is more then likely the problem. Please let me no if it takes care of the problem.

Can't get my Ryobi CS30 trimmer started, bought a new spark plug, still won't start. It worked fine last summer, took it out for the first time today, won't start, has plenty of fuel


Is the fuel old or has it been drained and refilled?? Sometimes old fuel will do this. Also make sure the air filter is clean and free of oil/dirt as this will also hinder the starting.

The primer button also is something to check. Push it 7 times, full choke, pull for 5 times, turn to half choke, and the unit should start.

Let me know,

Chip

2 Cycle Gas Trimmer will not start


it is normal to see air bubbles in line when pumping the bulb. to make sure what the problem is, try starting several times, remove spark plug. if dry, yes no fuel, remove the carb. if wet, place plug on engine block and look for blue spark. no spark means you need new plug, plug cord or ignition module

Ryobi gas trimmer


I don't mean to over simplify this, but are you using fresh gas? Gas string trimmers are extremely ticky when it comes to gas. They like it SUPER fresh. And while the gas and oil mixture should be right, it can be off a little bit and still run. Try draining all of the gas out, and then filling up with fresh mix. This is ALWAYS my first step with string trimmers, and it fixes the problem 75% of the time.
Hope this helps!!
