If it is a gas (petrol) trimmer...then most often it is in the on/off switch on the handle. Before you go tearing anything apart...rock the on/off switch a few times to see if it helps. www.nnyparts.com

My RST210 2 stroke petrol strimmer won start it has a spark at the plug also the plug is flooding so fuel is getting through but non start ? Great full for any ideas


Often it's the easiest thing that stump us. Try changing the spark plug first. Sometimes a spark plug just won't fire under load, i.e., while it's in the cylinder but will spark if you have it removed. There are checkers for this, but it's a lot less expensive to just replace the spark plug. Do that first and let me know.

Can't start the strimmer. It is a petrol strimmer, Partner Colibri. Is there a technique other than pulling the cord? Does it need more than just petrol? would be pleased if you could help. Regards...


Start procedure, switch the ignition switch on, press the primer bulb as many times as it takes to 3/4 fill the bulb, put the choke to the full position,hold the throttle trigger open, crank the engine until it fires once, move the choke to the centre position, crank the engine until it fires up and runs, once warm move the choke to the open position.

How do I start a B&Q Petrol strimmer


IF IT HAS THE PRIME BUTTON.

press several times slowly. turn on/off switch to on. select full choke. pull starter until it tries to fire but no more than seven times. select half choke and do the same. if it fires up allow to tick over for a couple of miutes then open choke fully. if it doesnt fire leave for 10 miutes then start all over again. good luck

Mcculloch t 240 petrol will not start


If your petrol has been sitting in the machine for a long time then yes it is your petrol. Mix a new batch usually you cannot let that sit around for more than 30 days, I always try to use fresh mixes, usually that means making smaller batches unless you use your trimmer quite a bit, most people do not though and that's when problems arise.

Having problems starting Makita strimmer. There is quite a lot of smoke coming out and then it stops. Have looked at spark plug -clean, and cleaned air filter. Could the problem be the petrol and oil mix.


Use 50:1 gas/oil with a GOOD QUALITY 2-cycle low-ash synthetic oil.

Remove the muffler and check the spark arrestor isn't partially blocked.

With a clear muffler, and the mix as described, there will be hardly any smoke at all.

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.
