It could be fuel, carburetor, mixture OR the muffler may be clogged. If the muffler is clogged, the unit won't run at high throttle.

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.

Starting up Ryobi Petrol Strimmer


full choke on , push petrol bubble 5 times then pull starter cord., with luck it will kick in to life after a 20/30 secs put on half choke , run again for 30 secs the no ckoke.

The main problem with Ryobi products is that they flood very very easly. So the more time you try and pump petrol into the carb the more it will flood . If that happenes then choke off and switch off and then just pull starter cord for about 30 secs then switch on and it could start if not prime it again as above good luck

I've lost the user manual for my Ryobi 25cc RPT 2543c strimmer. Can you please advise where the dip stick is to check the oil. Can't seem to find it.


Ryobi RPT 2543c This is a 2 stroke engine, so no dipstick. You mix oil with the petrol (ratio 50:1) or 200ml of two stroke oil per litre of petrol, and that's how the engine is lubricated. Hope this helps, arvidis@btopenworld.com

Ryobi PBC 3046YE strimmer starts but cuts out when speed control


A lack of acceleration in these units is most likely a fuel delivery related issue. It may possibly be time for a diaghram kit or carb rebuild kit to be installed in your carburetor. Ethanol in the gas deteriorates the parts that accomplish the acceleration procedure and may need to be replaced as they don't function anymore.
Many other things can affect these little machines as well such as clogged air filters, clogged crank case vent, clogged mufflers/exhaust ports./ spark arrestor screens...but more often than not, your problem is a carburetor issue.

I have changed the plug, what elso shoiuld I do? the strimmer is about to years old and there is no local agent.


Are you certain that you have no spark?

If so then you can disconnect the slip connector from the kill switch to see if it will start... if it does start then the problem was obviously a bad switch if it does not start then the problem is deeper possible coil or ignition module related.

My new Ryobi boggs down/ stalls as soon as I pull on the trigger.


You should have 2 small adjuster screws next to each other on top of the carb.Try adjusting each of them a little with a thin screwdriver as the engine is running.Put strimmer on the ground first and adjust screws while you are revving engine until it runs correctly.Trial and error and very small adjustments can make quite a difference.Hope this helps.

Ryobi RLT 30 CES Strimmer - Won't run properl7


I'm not sure about the carb. adjustment being removed. The newer carbs. only have one dial for adjustment, not the two screws like the "old school kind".It probably needs the carb. cleaned. Disassemble the carb. and clean with carb. cleaner. Use a Den Tek Brush, (used for cleaning teeth), to clean the small portals. Make sure the small screen in carb. is free of debis. The smallest of particals can cause your problem. Reassemble and try starting. If it still acts up, buy a carb. kit for trimmer and replace the needle valve, appropriate gaskets, diaphragm, and small screen. This should solve the problem.
