SOURCE: Troy Bilt Trimmer 75SS stalls at full throttle. new gas

Hello. Let me assist you. Since your trimmer runs but stalls at ful throttle it is telling you that there is a fuel problem. Not enough gas is getting through the carbeurator to satisfy the engines needs on full throttle. Most likely the carbeurator is gummed up. A common problem. Let's see if we can un gum it by getting a can or carbeurtor cleaner. Go to any auto parts store and talk to the clerk about your need.

SOURCE: Ryobi 720r trimmer starts ok but stalls when the

The carburator needs to be adjusted a little, thin our your mixture screw when the trimmer is warmed up and idling. Well how do you get it to idle? I usually have to play with the choke lever with the throttle wide open going from choke to partial choke as needed to keep it running. Adjusting can be tricky, you need a small screwdriver. Screw all the way in then back out 3 to 3.5 turns. this should get you close. Adjust idle as needed.

SOURCE: Polan P1500 trimmer ideles great until i press throttle and stall

Yep...I too just bought the p1500 from Amazon (got a full refund and was told to dispose of trimmer) and have the exact same problem, it starts, I even let it warm up for a while, then press the throttle lever and it bogs and wants to die. Well we know that is why it was so cheap. I liked it because it was small and ligh weight. I was told to take it to the nearest dealer (with receipt) to have it fixed for free...but the dealer laughed and asked, who said that they would do it free! So Now I will screw with it and see what I can do. If I get it working properly, I will let you know what I did....If you don't hear from me again, that means I tossed it in the garbage and bought a real one.

Why does my craftsman 2-cycle model 316.791860. Gas trimmer die?


Those little carbs clog very easily and what you experience is a common symptom. Go to any bog box home store and in the mower area pick up a can of small engine carb cleaner.
Remove the carb, take it apart as far as you comfortably can and soak all pieces in a can/jar of CLEAN gasoline for 10 -15 mins. Agitate to get the gas moving.
Remove the carb, and drip clean then use the carb cleaner to blow out every port you can see. reassemble and install the carb, it should work fine.
Before storing for the winter drain all gas from the tank and start it allowing the machine to run till it stalls out due to no gas. You should be fine for next season that way.

Craftsman line trimmer difficult to start but when I get it going it stalls after a minute or so. Sometimes before it stalls, it revs up other times it just slowly loses power and stalls. Can anyone...


I'm not sure the make of your carburetor, but it probably just needs a slight adjustment of the L (Low) and H (High) mixture needles.All diaghragm carbs are about the same. If you can access them, try removing them and spraying the circuits with carb cleaner and replace them at about 1 1/2 turns open from a lightly seated position. Don't mix them up. Here is the final adjustment.

Fuel lines!


Sounds like you need to adjust the carb. Remove the caps from the carb. Turn both screws clockwise until all the way seated. Start the trimmer and while running begin to back out the screws slowly until the trimmer is running strong but is smooth. Once you have the carb adjusted you can put the caps back on or you can discard.
Good luck!

Ryobi lawn trimmer keeps stalling out. I have


If it is a relatively new unit it should have the carburetor adjusted after the first few hours of use. If it stalls upon accelleration the low speed adjustment on the carb needs to be opened a little bit. If it runs a few minutes and then stalls it could be the high speed jet needs to be opened or the fuel filter is clogged.

Weedwacker stalls when accelerating


Check the fuel lines for cracks/breaks. If they are o.k., then:

You willneed to disassemble the carburetor and spray with carb.cleaner. Makesure the small screen is free of debris.(Should be able to see daylightthrough it.)

Use a Den Tek Brush, (http://www.drugstore.com/products/prod.asp?pid=165357&catid=1152),to clean the small portals in carb. These portals can become blocked. Reassemble and start.

If the carb. parts are more than 4 years old, you may have to replace them.

If you need further assistance, just let me know.

Ryobi 790r trimmer has low power and stalls


Maybe a quick fix and maybe not
check your muffler the factory puts a spark arrestor screen that tends to plug after awhile
there is a little plate on the side muffler that needs to be removed to access the screen you may need a torx bit or allen wrench to remove
you may have to remove the back half of the plastic cover to access the screws
remove screen and clean with carb. cleaner or equivalent make sure you can see through it and reverse the procedure to put it back

Craftsman grass trimmer stalls when warm


The carburetor needs cleaned. Disassemble the carb. and spray with carb. cleaner. Use a Den Tek brush, (used for cleaning between teeth), to clean the small portals. This works great for this job. Make sure the small screen in carb. is free of debris. Reassemble carb. and try starting.If this still doesn't solve your problem, you will need to buy a carb. kit and replace the appropriate parts.
