Sounds like the gas is not getting to the cylinder---remove carb and disassemble--make sure all jets are clear and the float valve moves freely.

Hello my husqvarna 137 chainsaw wont start at all what should i do? it has fuel and oil but still wont start

Start with basic things first, drain the fuel tank and re fill with fresh fuel, remove the spark plug, is it soaked with fuel? if so dry it , put the ignition unit to off, with the plug still out crank the engine a number of times to remove any excess fuel in the bore, check there is a spark at the plug, if yes leave the saw to dry out for a couple of hours, refit the plug and try again, remember to switch the ignition on

I have a strimmer that wont run. there is a spark there is fuel and all wiring is fine. When I try to start it it wont. I take the spark plug out and it is wet. Everything seems to be how it should be. I...

The carborator is stuck open. The needle valve is leaking. Get a rebuild kit and rebuild it. Or since your gonna do that. Try and take it apart yourself, real easy so you dont rip the gaskets when you take it apart. Or better yet, take it off. The set screws are 1 1/4 turns out. Check them by tightning them up and counting. Then open em up few turns. Shake it around and blow through the fuel barbs with canned air. Make sure you hold the butterfly valve open like giving it gas. Then tap it against your hand blow out some more. Maybee you get the little varnish like stuff out of it and it start back shutting the gas off? Put together, Tighten both set screws all way in. Then back out 1 1/4 turns. Dry sqark plug with tourch. Put it in start it up. Then after it warm up run good. Final adjust the screws 1/8 turn in to make it run good.

I have a rhobi strimmer only 2 years old wont start

I presume this is a petrol one. The fuel can dry in the carby and stop the unit from starting. Use fresh petrol.
I am not sure about the ryoby unit, but if there is a air filter, take it out and dip it in petrol, then try to start with the normal proceedure in the manual.
