Are you checking at the plug or wire. After 5 years you may have fouled the plug in your attempt to start. In that case it won't fire.

Poulan prolink pp335 wont start


In case anyone else hits this question, I had this weed eater and all of the attachments. I had it in my garage for a good 7 years, and it had gas in it 7 years ago.. I've known for some time that it now had no gas in it & that it wouldn't be easy to start if it worked at all.. I put some normal gas in it and dripped a bit of oil into the gas because i didn't have a can properly mixed and didn't want to oil up my lawn mower gas.. I had a guy cutting my lawn for the past 7 years but he recently disappeared..

I primed the weed eater and attempted to start it for a good 20 minutes yesterday to no joy.. I put it away and figured i'd try it again and more in depth today when I had more time. I wanted to take the spark plug out and make sure it was clean, etc.

On attempting to remove the spark plug, I couldn't find a wrench or socket that would work to do so, so I just reconnected spark plug cable and figured I'd give the pull start method another try.. I pumped more gas into the primer and attempted to start it normally a few times.. It wouldn't even attempt to fire. Just for fun since I was going to have to throw this and tons of never-been-opened attachments away, i decided to try something goofy (in my opinion) and squeezed the trigger as far as it would go (which disengages the choke feature..) and gave it a few pulls on the cord.. It attempted to fire a few times, then it fired! It worked very well although it was a little bit thick on the smoke for a bit..

Maybe this answer will help someone else who hits the problem of leaving gas in a weed eater for years.. don't use the choke feature to start it.. start it at full throttle with the primer perhaps flooded a little bit..

Having a problem starting my Shindaiwa T22 Weed Eater.


take the spark plug out and pull the engine over with the spark plug in the wire and ground the plug to the trimmer and see if it sparks. if not flip the switch the other way and see if it sparks then you shall know.

Chaged gas and spark plug. Get no combustion


Make sure your getting a spark at the plug. Not much to these machines but verify good spark before anything else.

I have a snapper S31SST weed eater. It is 4-5


Remove spark plug and check for fire with a spark tester. (some inline models are also available and safer since the spark plug stays in place using those types)

If no spark:
Remove covers and unplug small kill-circuit wire(s) from ignition coil...Test for spark.
If you have spark the switch needs replacing.
If you have no spark the coil needs replacing.
Hope this helps.

My te 475 weed eater wont start


Check the on-off switch? Try disconnecting the switch and see if it starts. If it does, replace the switch.
