I hope you have fresh gas and 2-cycle oil mixed up! They always seem to start strong and explosively cut on good, fresh fuel. :D

1:Choke on.

2:Push the primer bulb (rubber ball by the side of the air filter) 3 times.

3:Place trimmer on ground. Grasp the handle, squeezing the throttle fully in left hand. Kneel and give that starter a crisp, sharp tug with your right hand. If the engine "hits", then push in the choke until off. Goto step 4.

If it does not give a hint of life, repeat the tug on the line 2 more times. If it STILL does not start, check for a distinct odor of gasoline. Likely, at this point, it is flooded, proceed to step 5.

4: With choke now off, continue to depress the throttle fully and give it another sharp pull on the starter. If it starts and revs? Let it idle for a minute to warm up, then go to work!

5:With choke OFF, press and hold throttle at full. It may take several pulls on the starter rope to see any life. If after 10 pulls and there is still no life, and still smells of gasoline - time to see the Ex about getting the trimmer looked after for some TLC. :D

You could have a clogged tube from the primer into the carb, but it also sounds like the fuel tank is overfilled.

I need to know the preset adjustment on the low and high idle on a stihl weedeater (ex. 1 1/4 turns)


all 2 cycle weedeater type carb diaphram presets / initial settings are 1.5 turns after a gentle close. You will of course have to dial them in after the initial start.. (1 and 2 screw types)

Weedeater gas edger won't start!!!!!!!!!


yes, there is a spark module, but it's highly unlikely that two would have a bad module - more than likely, it is your gas mix. it must be fresh for the engine to run. the gas we have today will go bad in about a month and a half. if you happen to live in an area that has E85, forget it. small engines will not run very long, if at all on this junk. in some areas, you can get gas without alcohol, but it can only be used for lawn & garden equipment. it's expensive, but your engines will run

Weedeater will not run with choke off


Check your carburettor mounting screws,they might be loose and it would mean the engine is
getting to much air and it would leak gas. Stephen

I would first clean the air filter, check fuel lines for cracks and check the fuel filter inside the tank, if those look good try adjusting then if necessary rebuilding the carburetor.
Also you might move your post to another section; it is under timers not trimmers. ;)

Craftsman weedeater wont start


The problem that I had with my craftsman was that I found that there was a tube in the fuel tank that goes to the carb, & at the other end - inside the tank, there was a small screen with maybe a weight on it (to keep it in the gas no matter what position the weedeater is in). Mine was plugged up and i went to the saw shop and got a generic hose & end with the screen deal & changed them out. Solved my problem. Rick
