Trimmer head not functioning right

I was wondering why my trimmer head does not not spin on the weed eater. The engine does not bog down and has full power behind it

Thanks Rob

Sounds like the inner drive cable has broke inside the shaft that drives the trimmer head.

Starting procedure


Terry: According to eHow.com:

"
  • Put on a pair of safety glasses. Remove the fuel cap from the Weed Eater and set it aside. Fill the fuel tank with unleaded gasoline that has been mixed with quality 2-stroke oil in a 40:1 ratio. Replace the fuel cap.
  • Move the Weed Eater to a safe place and lay it flat on the ground. Depress the fuel bulb located beneath the carburetor approximately six times to prime the engine. Press it slowly so that fuel has adequate time to traverse the fuel line.
  • Slide the handlebar-mounted engine "On/Stop" switch to the "On" position. Slide the choke lever beneath the fuel tank to the "Full" position.
  • Depress the "Throttle Lock" lever located beside the engine "On/Stop" switch. Keeping the lever depressed, squeeze the throttle trigger. Release the throttle lock. This sequence holds the trigger in the depressed position, which aids in starting the Weed Eater.
  • Roll the Weed Eater so that it is resting on the engine and the trimmer head shield only. This will allow the spinning trimmer head to avoid contact with the ground. Brace the Weed Eater by holding it to the ground with one hand. Using your other hand, pull the starter rope quickly until the engine begins to run. Do not pull the rope more than a dozen times. If it fails to start by then, squeeze the throttle trigger and continue to pull until the engine starts.
  • Allow the Weed Eater to warm up for about 15 seconds, then slide the choke lever to the "Off" position. Let the trimmer run for another minute without touching the throttle lever. After the Weed Eater has warmed up, squeeze the throttle trigger once to disengage the throttle lock. The trimmer is now operational.

    When weed eater is running in order to get the head to turn i've got to give it full throttle before i can cut the grass, and it still bogs down.


    do you have two adjustment screws down in a hole in the carb?
    If you do they are the carb. high and low adjustment.
    What I do is take a hacksaw and cut a groove right in the housing an the screw heads .that way you can adjust them Good luck

    MY RYOBI S430 WITH THE EGDE ATTCHMENT WILL NOT RUN UP TO FULL SPEED. IT BOGS DOWN AND STALLS. RUNS FINE WITH THE WEED EATER ATTACHMENT. THANKS RON


    too much drag on the edger, try putting some oil or lubricant spray where the edger spins on the attachment.

    Ryobi weed eater head won't spin


    Sounds like the clutch has taken a long trip south. If the clutch pads are not wore out, try some wd40 on the pad hinges.

    I can not remove the top off the weed eater to


    They usually have a hex-head bolt cast inside the plastic knob, the head starts spinning inside. You might be able to loosen the knob by gripping it with Vice-Grips really tight, then get a new knob. Should be right-hand thread.

    Question about Roybi weed eater's line length.


    the standard line length is around 3-4". you can leave it as long as you want, provided it does not bog the engine down, or bog down when cutting plants.

    however plastic line breakage is typical of older line. it gets very brittle. Also typical of hitting rocks, gravel, cement, asphault, ground, etc.
