WEEDEATER TRIMMER MODEL FL20 WON'T START. FLOODS OUT. I bought it new, used it 1 year with no problem. Now it won't start. It set in shed 2 years so I decided to try to fix it again. Cleaned rust off flywheel. Notched needle valve screws so I could adjust it. Turned both out 1.5 turns. No start. Set them at 1 turn. No start. Dissassembled carb but found nothing. Cleaned it anyway. No start. Makes plenty of fire and WAY too much gas. Maybe I have a bad diaphram. ?????????? Please help if you can.

It depends on your model. You can visit the PIVOTRIM website and they show how to install their head on most units which includes how to take your old one off. Their website is http://www.pivotrim.com
Otherwise you need to look at your operators manual or call the manufacturer.

Small engine carburators are prone to clogging.
remove the carb and disassemble it placeing the body parts in a jar of clean fresh gasoline.
let them soak for a good 15 minutes them remove and dry and low out the ports with compressed air ( canned air will work) then reassemble

SOURCE: my 300 utility seems to flood out everytime I try

the needle is not seating with the float which is causing the carburetor to flood. either the needle is not attached to the float(some snap into a plastic groove, others have a spring) or the float is bad. Hope this helps Tim

SOURCE: I have a Kohler RV

it sounds like that, I would look at the needle valve to make sure opening. What I would do is remove the bowl and let gas flow thru it, then push up on the float valve and release to see if you get another stream of gas. What you can try also because I think there is gum(from stale gas) is running with the choke partially on till it starts to flood out and the open choke and see if continues to run. I don't know how extensive you mean when you say "cleaned" the carb but you might have to again with a good carb cleaner or find a soak for it.

SOURCE: I have a Ryobi RY28120 gas powered weedeater that will start sometimes and not at others. Not sure if the carb needs cleaning or if it need a new muffler. Maybe adjusting carb screws? Not sure! Al

Use only fresh gasoline (alcohol free if you can find it). Purchase a top quality synthetic 2 stroke oil such as Lucas, Golden Spectra and mix it exactly as the manufacture dictates. Install a new accurately gapped plug and make sure the plug wire cap (boot) is pulled back to inspect the wire to connector crimp. Start it up as you normally would to allow the new gas and oil to permiate the system and if you cannot get it to stay running without the choke being on shut it down and squirt some oil into the carburetor and pull the trimmer over, if this makes it start everytime it does not want to start and it allows you to click off of run you have either low compression (rings are worn). or your carb is yet another victim of the geniouses that thought alcohol in gas was a super idea. Either way you can replace the piston and rings or the carb. both are almost not worth the time and cost anymore, a new carb for mine is $70.00, with a new piston and ring set being around $40.00 and a brand new trimmer the same as this one on sale at $130.00 it was an easy decision to buy new.

My weedeater has no spark at all


If there is no spark then I would suggest checking out the plug wire for cracks or breaks If there is none present then the ignition coil could be finished Take it off take it into your small engines dealer and get him to test it.

Why won't my 98 tahoe start after it was sitting for a year? i bought a new battery so that is not it.


Did you put stablizer in the gas before storing it? Does the fuel pump run for 2 seconds when the ign is turned ? Have you checked the air cleaner for debris? Do you have spark? You must have air/fuel/spark to start.

Weedwacker -purchased more than a year ago, never been able to start it. Lost owner's manual - can I get a copy on line?


Should be able to google model #. Make sure you have a 40:1 fuel oil mix. Pump primer bulb 4-5 times, put on full choke, when attempts to start set choke to half. After it starts open choke. If won't start and has been sitting for months with fuel in it, the carb is more than likley gummed up.If you paide less than $100.00 for it it is not worth having it repaired at a shop. You can although purchase a new carb at eparts, or sears parts direct for around $ 30.00. Just need the model#. Good luck.

Weedeater gas edger won't start!!!!!!!!!


yes, there is a spark module, but it's highly unlikely that two would have a bad module - more than likely, it is your gas mix. it must be fresh for the engine to run. the gas we have today will go bad in about a month and a half. if you happen to live in an area that has E85, forget it. small engines will not run very long, if at all on this junk. in some areas, you can get gas without alcohol, but it can only be used for lawn & garden equipment. it's expensive, but your engines will run
