Sounds like you will need to clean your carburetor.
Sometimes you can get by with priming it a few times, and letting it
run a few times like that and it will flush the gunk out of the jets,
but most of the time you will need to rebuild the carburetor.
If the mower is over a couple years old, then I also recommend that you
buy and install a new carburetor repair kit, because the diaphragm will
get hard and that will cause it to be hard to crank.
When you clean your carburetor and remove the jet screws, count the
number of turns it takes to seat the jets from their original position.
That way when you go to put the jets back in, you know how many turns
they were in/out.
Please rate me, Thanks
Good Luck, I hope this helped

SOURCE: when I try to start my weedeater gas comes out of the muffler

It is flooded something fierce. The gas will come out of the muffler when it starts flooding the cylinder. Once you get it starter (no choke when flooded, throttle open) it will smoke like the dickens and then should be fine.

If the spark arrestor has been cleaned then it could well be the muffler itself, or the exhaust port blocked, remove the muffler and check the port for carbon build up.

My weedeater 150 mph starts hard and barely runs at full throttle. I put in new gas, plug, and clean air filter. Please help. John


One cause of such a symptom could be an obstructed exhaust. Make sure the outlet of the muffler is not obstructed (ex. dirt dobber nest), also check the exhaust port by removing the muffler.

My ryobi weedeater will start in the choke or low position but will die when you switch it to the middle or high position.


It's the muffler. Everyone thinks fuel, carburetor, mixture. They're wrong. The muffler is clogged and the unit can't be tuned to high throttle until you clean it.

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.

Weed eater will idle but shutdown upon giving gas


Cleaning the screen on the muffler will help but the muffler itself is what needs burned out. This can be done with a fire or a torch. Let the muffler cool on it's own as use of water can warp it. Parts can usually be purchased at any small engine repair shop that represents Mtd. That's who make the weed eater.

Poulan 17'' Gas Weedeater keeps dying!


Hello su2yak2:

From your Description it Sounds like the Exhaust Port or Muffler is Restricted with Carbon Deposits, the Carburetor Metering Pump Actuator Gap is Incorrect.
>>The Following is a Basic Instruction File for Doing a Diagnostic on the Engine for this Problem. Any Input is Appreciated.
>>**Remove the Muffler and Make Sure the Exhaust Port is Clear.
>>If it is, then Try to Start the engine with the Muffler Off.
>>If it Starts and Runs Properly, then Clean the Spark Arrestor Screen in the Muffler or Replace the Muffler if Required.
Is the Fuel Line from the Fuel Filter Staying Full of Fuel?
The Carburetor Metering Jet Actuator is Set so the Pump Diaphram Dowl is Just Touching the Actuator Arm. These Components are Located Under the Cover with 4 Small Screws Holdong it to the Carburetor Body.
Please, Do Not Hesitate, If you Hit a Snag or this Does Not Correct the Problem, I am Here if You Require More Assistance.
Hope this Helps. Let me Know What Happens, Please. May the All Mighty Bless You and Yours. Be Safe and Be Happy. Thanks.

Good Luck

Respectfully
