Yes, that gas treatment stuff meant for this purpose is great stuff! you can get it in any hardware store or small engine repair place,...just mix some into your gas tank, pour it into your little ryobi thing and let her sit,.....no problems when you go to start it up months later

Why won't my McColluch weed eater create a vacuum


Did you check the muffler exhaust or spark arrester, to see if it is clogged from using to rich a oil/gas mixture ? Did you replace the diaphragm in correct position ? Find a new carb online, possibly ebay ?

Petrol weed eater will not start. Alomost starts


Hi Mark, I own a shop, we will not work on ryobi, have you gotten 2 seasons out of it? If so thats probably as good as it gets. But you can check carb settings. In the USA they come with limiters on the adjustment screws, not too much you can do(break them off) back your adjustments counter clockwise 1half turn.

Ryobi weed eater head won't spin


Sounds like the clutch has taken a long trip south. If the clutch pads are not wore out, try some wd40 on the pad hinges.

I have a ryobi weed eater clean carb change filter and spark plug wont run off choke


I have the same problem. It will run if I put it halfway between Half Choke and Full Choke. But, just dies if I put it on Run or Half Choke. Don't ever loan your WE to anyone, They might just try to run it on straight gas--That is what happened on another week eater that I had.

I have a 31 cc ryobi weed eater start for about


I think a new carburetor kit and a good carburetor tune up is in order my friend. Sounds like it's starving for gas. If it bogs down after warm up when you throttle it, then yes it needs a carb tuning. The L screw is the low side screw and should be turned in lightly until it seats then back it out one and quarter turns (1 1/4). The H screw is your high speed screw. Also, turn it in lightly until it seats, then back it out approximately a 3/4 turn. With these settings the unit should start and may even stay running. Again, if it bogs when throttled, while running turn the L screw out a little more maybe only 1/16th of a turn and then try it again. If it does rev then you'll have to adjust the H screw in about a 1/16th of a turn. But make sure you only do this after the engine has warmed up.

Hope this works, good luck

Rhobi weed eater stalling


Try spraying some carb cleaner into the intake while its running - with the air filter out..
If that doesnt help & if it sat for a long time without being run - you might need to get the carb reuilt..
