Question about Poulan/Weed Eater No. Te475 952711797 17" Le Gas Trimmer/Edger
This is a Weedeater Model TE475 that is approximately 3 years old and was in storage from March 2008 until June 2009. We can get it to start and run briefly but it quickly loses power and then dies.
It has gotten so bad that we can no longer use it. I tried putting
new gas lines (old ones were leaking) and changing the spark plug. It appears to be a carburetor problem rather than electrical. Any ideas shall be greatly appreciated.
If it is not REEKING of unburned gas, likely the idle circuit in the carb is fine, but your high-speed jet/pintle seat is caked with crud...
If it was stored with fuel in it, you are going to find that nothing short of a rebuild on the carb is going to help you. :( Luckily, if you are handy many of these smaller diaphragm type carbs can be rebuild with tweezers, slot screw drivers, needle-nosed pliers, can of spray carb cleaner and a rebuild kit from any hardware shop. All told you're going to at most spend $16 bucks. If the engine is otherwise sound with all the work you put into replacing lines, fuel pickup/filer/stainer, the carburetor rebuild route will perk it right up. Good luck!
