My touch start is whining and not engaging to start motor

Sounds like a bad starter solenoid. The solenoid isn't throwing the starter gear out to engage the flywheel.

Ryobi 30cc RLT30CET will not start. It started new out of the box but now will not start at all. I have not changed any settings (wouldn't know how) and have mixed new fuel (50:1) each time

To avoid, frustration and headaches, if the machine is STILL under warranty; return it or follow the warranty instructions for repair/replacement.

I want to confirm the ratio of fuel (unleaded petrol) to oil mixture for my Ryobi chain saw, model CS3816. Is it 50:1? What oil do I use?

Hi afs3...
Yes use the 50:1 oil to gas ration. 1 pint of 2 cycle oil to 6 gallons of gasoline.

My Ryobi pcn 4040 chain saw does not start, there is spark at the plug but I am not sure how strong the spark should be. The fuel line was removed from the tank, not sure if I have mixed them up. Which...

Not too familier with this macne , however it is very important to get the hoses around the correct way, remember that the primer pulls fuel from the carb and dumps it back to the fuel tank, if you have it the other way round it will just flood all the time and will not start, as long as there is a spark at the plug that is good enought as they work off speed of rotation and will get bigger when it starts.

I am trying to thread new cord on my ryobi rlt30cet, but am finding it hard to do.

Hi Trisha,

Are you having a hard time with the owner's manual or without it? I found a pdf document at this website for the owner's manual, if you don't have one:
The English version of the stringer installation starts on page 19.

If you are having difficulty with the instructions, please write back.

I hope this helps. If it does, I would appreciate a vote. Thanks,

Handie Andie

Could you please let me know. 1] Can I use E10 fuel in my new RLT 30 CET 30cc trimmer that I have just purchased and am yet to start up? 2] Is 50 to 1 50mm of oil to one litre of petrol?

Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly

First off the engine is designed to operate on unleaded fuel. The manufacturer makes no statements at all about E-10 Fuel. I will tell you from experience that you can use E-10 Fuel but.... should you ever have a warranty claim make sure the entire fuel system is 100% unleaded pre-mixed fuel. Your not going to hurt the unit using E-10 fuel as long as you maintain the proper fuel-oil mixtures. If anything a splash more of 2 stroke oil as in 22 mm / liter vs 20 mm. Or (+) 8 mm per gal.

Manufacturers statemenrts and recommended fuel mixtures below:

Thanks for choosing FixYa,

n This product is powered by a 2-stroke engine and

requires pre-mixed petrol and 2-stroke lubricant . Premix

unleaded petrol and 2-stroke engine lubricant in

a clean container approved for petrol.

n This engine is certified to operate on unleaded petrol

intended for automotive use with an octane rating
of 87 ([R + M] / 2) or higher.

1 Litre + 2 0 ml =

2 Litres + 4 0 ml =

3 Litres + 60 ml = 50:1 (2%)

4 Litres + 80 ml =
5 Litres + 100 ml =
