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, turn the screws in to seat them and 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 do not forget to rate me, Thanks
Good Luck, I hope this helped

Try cleaning or changing the air filter. If it dirty the engine will not stay running with out the choke on.

Primer bulb will not prime


Hello Tony Galvan, I had to replace the fuel lines to keep from sucking air when I pressed on the primer bulb. Also, I took the carburetor apart and found the gasket was good by holding it up to the sunlight, no light came through indicating holes in the gasket. Then I took a magnifying glass and looked at the bottom half of the carburetor and noticed that a soft film of what looks like lint from a dryer had accumulated on a screen mesh type of filter. Once I cleaned the debris away, the weed wacker started every time. I pulled with a full choke and partially wants to start. Then moved the choke to half choke and pressed on the throttle fully and pulled, it started! But you must at least hold the throttle close to full until 10 seconds for the engine to warm up. Then move the choke to idle. Hope this helps.

Craftsman weed wacker will start and run


Are you sure you have the right fuel mixture? Many of these require 2 Cycle oil to be added to the gas. If fuel is right, you may have a vacuum leak at the carb (or crack in base where it mounts to the engine). My weedwacker needed to be run on half choke for about 10 min before it got hot enough to run with choke off.

Never used weed wacker before I have a Echo SRM225 how do you start the darn. thing..? :) I have pulled and pulled and no I am not out of gas. :)


You need to put it in full choke. If it is in full choke and still won't start, try pulling the trigger a bit. once you have it started in full choke, back it down to half choke and hold down the trigger until it catches. Once it catches take the choke off entirely WITHOUT removing your finger from the trigger.

Hard start tb475ss troy built weed wacker when i close the cold start lever it starts but its 75 degrees out its like the primer ball is inop but i see fuel moving through the lines when priming did not...


These 4 cycle trimmers need to be primed 10x before a cold start. The bulb will feel *firmer* on the last two or three depressions and you'll know that the carb is primed.

Full choke and and full throttle on first tug should see it hit once with a puff of smoke. Second start attempt should be in choke position two (half choke) and with full pressure on the throttle. Should rev to life on start attempt. Let the engine IDLE for 30 seconds, moving the choke to off at the end of the waiting period. Let engine idle to warm another full minute with no choke, then set to work!

Redmax weed wacker wont stay running


Have these unit been stored with fuel in them or sitting around for a long period of time? If so the carbs may need to be overhauled. Also check for a clogged fuel filter and vacuum test the fuel lines for cracks.
