Question about Poulan 25cc 2-Cycle Gas Powered String Trimmer #P2500

1 Answer

Poulan Pro PPB250E trimmer won't idle

Trimmer won't idle even with adjustment screw all the way in. In fact idle adjustment screw has no effect on engine speed regardless of how far in it is. Engine runs fine when throttle is open and starts easily. Fresh spark plug made no difference. No similar problems last year. It am guessing carb is gunked up?

So i've been using a poulan pro 4218 all summer, ran like a champ for me everyday all day. then the crankshaft holding the clutch and sprocket snapped.. not a problem bought the part and replaced it....


Sounds like a carb issue, the L screw on the carb adjust the fuel mixture from idle to half throttle, i would richen the L screw by unscrewing 1/4 turn, this should improve the running, however there is a special tool to adjust the screws, part no. 530035560, the screws are fuel, not air screws, increase a shade more if it is still not idling or accelerating properly.

I have a 2 cycle Troy-Bilt TB90BC line trimmer. Won't idle. I've had the carburetor dipped, installed a new carb kit, replace the gas lines, but will only run at full speeds. Dies out easily....


One of three things is occuring here. The IDLE SPEED SCREW (Phillips head) on the throttle plate is screwed in way too far. The L and H mixture screws are open way too much allowing the carb to use excessive fuel, even on startup. Those 2 screws may need adjusting. The metering lever in your carb is not adjusted flush with the carb body flange and is holding the gas needle open constantly. Check these things and post back.

Poulan 446t Will start, won't continue to


The diaphragm in the carb is likely ruined from the gas gelling onto it. This will put pinholes in it and then it won't work properly. Pick up a carb kit and rebuild it (if parts available) and then you should be good to go. If you can't rebuild the carb, a replacement will run you 30 bucks or more.

What would be wrong with my trimmer if it idles good but wants to die when i try to accelerate


It either needs the L mixture screw adjusted (counterclockwise 1/8 to 1/4 of a turn) or the metering diaphragm inside the carb has become brittle and is not opening the needle valve to allow enough gas to flow into the H (High speed ) fuel circuit to allow it to run. Don't confuse the L mixture screw with the Idle speed screw. The idle speed screw has a Philips head and the L speed mixture screw has a small unconventional head that a normal screwdriver does NOT fit.

Where do I get the little tool for adjusting the carburetor settings on a poulan pro multi-attachment weed **** PPB250E


The part number for this carb tool is
530-035560 and it is made by Poulan.
Not sure where you can purchase unless there is a small engine repair shop near you. If they deal in Poulan they may be willing to order one.
Otherwise, try on net for small engine repair.
Dave's Radiator is a good one.

Poulan trimmer wont idle


Sounds like the carb needs adjusted. Unfortunately, it takes a special tool now to fit the adjustment screw(s). A shop should be able to do that for you.
