Take the spark plug out and pull the engine over with the spark plug in the wire and ground the plug to the trimmer and see if it sparks. if not flip the switch the other way and see if it sparks then you shall know.

    trickle in some mixed gas into the carburetor throat and if it runs and dies the carburetor will probably need to be cleaned and rebuilt since sitting that long.

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.

    Swisher E4 (lack of power and rpm) ???


    Hi Davis:
    Check exhaust/muffler. Make sure it is not obstructed with carbon.
    Check trimmer string is not too long.
    Check air filter. Make sure it's clean
    What is history? Was it running well and then something specific happened?
    Spark plug - how long since it's been changed?
    Hope this helps.

    I have a Homelite Gas Weed Eater. Model BC800. What type of oil does it take and what is the correct mixture of gas to oil?


    Any name brand two cycle oil should be good like Echo, Stihl,Opti-2,Shindaiwa. Homelite even makes there own two cycle oil in a pre measured bottle. Mix it 40:1 which is 2.6 oz. of 2 cycle oil to 1 gallon of gas.

    I have a WEED Eater Model SST 45. I left the switch on all winter and now it won't start. What is wrong?


    If it is a pull start, leaving the switch on did no damage to the weed eater.

    I have weed eater model FX26SC it starts and when I put it to run the weed eater doesn't spin but is running


    Either the clutch is worn out or the flexible drive shaft is broken. Either repair is likely to cost almost as much as a new unit.
