Question about Ryobi 30 Cubic Centimeter Curved Shaft Gas Trimmer
It's the muffler. Everyone thinks fuel, carburetor, mixture. They're wrong. The muffler is clogged and the unit can't be tuned to high throttle until you clean it.
Steps: Remove the back housing to access the muffler. You may want to remove the gas tank to avoid a spill. Remove the muffler (2 large screws). Remove the muffler door (3 small screws). The screen should be cleaned using a pin (poke out any hardened material). Most important: The muffler door is 2 parts. Pry it apart and scrape off the burnt carbon that is clogging the exhaust path. Re-assemble and start.

Check fuel lines inside and outside tank for cracking or splitting - possibly sucking air-if ok disassemble and clean carburetor with spray carb cleaner, be sure to get idle and high speed jets.

I have the same issues. I think the solution is to toss it and buy a real one from an actual lawn care dealer that sells quality brands. Yes, they will cost about $200 and up, but it's worth it to have something alot more reliable, and can be worked on when needed. I know I have wasted more than that extra $100 in time/effort with this thing, and I still plan to buy a new one. So now, that quality trimmer will cost more because of the money I wasted on the Ryobi in the 1st place.

You probably need a slight carburetor adjustment. Try to turn the L mixture screw (the one near the bottom of the carburetor on the air filter side, closest to the engine) 1/8 to 1/4 of a turn counterclockwise. These mixture adjustment screws ( L and H) have odd heads on them and conventional tools won't turn them. I use an automotive type plastic wire connector (around 22 gauge) with a ring terminal end which I can hold. Tap the plastic end of the wire terminal connector onto the head of the screw with a small hammer and this will enable you to adjust the L screw. This adjustment will increase you high speed side and possibly allow it to run off choke in a regular manner.
