SOURCE: weedeater will not start. was running, shut it off

Pull the spark plug after pushing the primer bulb and cranking a few times...if the plug is "wet" (indicating fuel is present in the cylinder) then the next step will be checking the compression...compression should read above 90psi (preferrably 100-125psi)...if compression is below 90psi, the most likely culprit will be a stuck piston ring.

SOURCE: my new blower just won

When did you purchase it? If it is under a certain number of days, you may be able to return it. Other wise you will have to find a warranty repair center for that blower and get them to look at it under warranty. Make sure you have a copy of your receipt when you take it in to the shop. ** But make sure the shop does not get a diagnostic fee or handling fee because they are getting paid by the warranty company.** You should not have to pay a dime if it is under warranty.
Good Day.

Clean or change air filter. Clean, gap or change spark plug. Empty gas tank add fresh gas with Stabil. When spark plug is removed pull rope several times to blow out cylinder. Spray starter fluid in spark plug hole before replacing spark plug. Clean outside of carb so choke works freely. Spray starter fluid into carb breather hole with air filter removed and try to start. if running replace air filter and cover. If no start disassemble carb and clean. If no start replace carb.

Husqvarna weed eater starts , but blows alot of smoke & then stalls out


Rod, Carb. may need adjusted, try loosening gas cap and start to see if cap vent plugged, there is a in tank fuel filter that you could fish out and remove to see if it is plugged. If still not running remove muffler and clean spark arrester screen, if screen plugged the trimmer will do this.
Check the attached links,instruction and guides, Good luck

Weedeater won't start


inside the carb there is a small screen. it is probably dirty. also the diaphragm may be stiff. go ahead and rebuild it. the kits are cheap and it should run like a new one. there are videos on you tube that show how to do this.

I have a Poulan Prolink 150E weedeater. One day I was running it and it just stopped. I've changed the plug, thinking that was it, it wasn't. It's getting gas but not fire. Do you have any


If fuel is present and spark is good then it's air. Remove air filter and see if it starts. If so, it's time for a new one.

My weedeater 150 mph starts hard and barely runs at full throttle. I put in new gas, plug, and clean air filter. Please help. John


One cause of such a symptom could be an obstructed exhaust. Make sure the outlet of the muffler is not obstructed (ex. dirt dobber nest), also check the exhaust port by removing the muffler.

Is getting air in gas line, will not start


If the hoses are connected right and they are in good condition, it could be bad gas,sparkplug or carburetor needs cleaned and/or a rebuild kit. Check the link below for parts:

Weedeater very hard starting or not starting at all


One of two solutions. But the only thing wrong is the carburetor. It needs cleaned or it needs a new carb. kit. If you need tips on how to clean, just let me know.

Stihl weed eater runs 2min. then stop


Stihl weedeater was running and stopped suddenly. Put in a new fuel filter and cleaner air filter with soap and water. Checked spark plug and it appeared fine. Started the weedeater, ran for a second or so and stopped. Spark plug wasn't gas fouled. Could it be the carburetor needing new diaphram gasket and spring.
