Check the switch, it could burnout. The trigger switch made on this model are very cheap and can not supply current to motor for a long time without burning out. So it could be that switch has melted, and plastic is covering parts of the terminal.

My LE500 edger just stopped. After reading a number of posts, checking the switch, verifying the brushes are in working order, etc.; I found another solution. Once you have taken off the black cover to expose the motor, look at the inside of the cover itself. There are, or should be, two rubber stoppers or cylinders. These stoppers press down on the brushes, which in turn positions the brushes against the armature. If there is unsufficent pressure on the brushes they will not align properly and the edger will not run. I extended the stoppers slightly from the housing, reassembled the edger, and the edger works fine.

Gas Trimmer will not stay started

Many times with a gas mix, after sitting for a while, the mix separates and gums up the carb. Taking the carb off and soaking it overnight in a parts or carb cleaner and running carb cleaner through the tank and gas lines will cure this.

I have a poulan 335 weedeater it is six months old it starts with choke but when you press the trigger it bogs down and stalls you can keep it running if you keep the trigger pressed but if you let off it...

If its only six months old i would think it is a carb adjustment issue ( running too lean ) you need to richen up the mixture by un screwing the mixture screws, start with 1/8 turn on each

Trimmer won't stay running

Most likely needs the carb rebuilt.

First check the prime bulb and fuel lines for cracks. Check the spark arrestor for carbon buildup.

Another problem could be a stuck piston ring, but try rebuilding the carb first as it is usually the source of the problem.
