We have a Ryobi gas weed eater. We can get it started but it doesn't stay on. I took it in to get it fixed and he said it was the primer switch, which he replaced, but we are still having the same problem.
Can you help us or refer us to a Ryobi repair store? We live in Phoenix, Arizona but can go to any repair store in Glendale, Tempe, Phoenix, Mesa, Scottsdale, wherever in Arizona. Thank you. Sally

How do I fix a ryobi bp42 that will not start


It's a 2 stroke & it's relatively new. as long as you didn't score the piston by neglecting to add oil to the fuel mixture, the most likely problem is fuel issues. It only takes a month or 2 to have ethanol fuel absorb enough moisture to ruin the fuel mix. Return all carb settings to original settings. Empty your tank, get rid of your fuel, remix with NON-ETHANOL FUEL MIXED WITH A PREMIUM SYNTHETIC 2-STROKE OIL, such as echo or husquvarna. Purge all the fuel from your lines and primer. Remove the spark plug & pull the cord a few times to dry out the cylinder, run a flame under the spark plug to dry it out. Add 3 drops of fuel mix to the cylinder then replace the plug. Put it on full choke & pull 1 time. Then on 1/2 choke pull to start in 1 or 2 pulls. Still won't start; replace plug & air filter. Let it warm up for 5-10 seconds then turn choke off.

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! Also,...


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 Ryobi 700R "EZ" weedeater smokes excessively.


Check the fuel/oil mix ratio you are using. Some Ryobis use a 32:1 mix and some use a 40:1 mix. There isn't much difference there. To be on the safe side, if you machine is possibly running or tuned a little "lean" I would start off with about 4 oz/gallon oil to gas mix. Use synthetic 2-stroke oil also. Your machine will perform much better.

Hi i have a Ryobi c430 weedeater, what petrol do i use in it?. is it 2 stroke or a 4 stroke motor? i dont have the manual for it. thankyou


This is a 4-Stroke model. Just use regular unleaded gas in it. Here is a viewable manual of models like yours.

Weedeater dies when you open choke


After you start it and are in the second stage of the choke (half choke ) let it run for awhile until it warms a bit then try openning choke and going to full throttle.

My weedeater starts but doesnt seem to be getting enough fuel


Hi,
You can't clean the filter. You can however order a new filter with the filter attached from www.ryobi.com.
When you say it's not getting enough gas is the weedeater shutting off on you? If so your carb may need to be clean. If that's the case then report back and I can tell you how to do that.
Good luck!

Ryobi 31cc , 17inch weed ,hard to start ,needs to stay choked to


I got on here to find the solution for the same problem. This seems to be fairly common. I need to have it at 3/4 choke to run properly. Other posts say the exact same thing, about the 3/4 choke. It is apparenly something that breaks occationally.

I'm going to remove the carb and take it apart. My suspection is the diaphram in the bottom of the carb. There isn't much you can do with the carb, it is very simple and has few parts.

There is a chance that it is a blocked passageway also.

There are instructions for adjusting the mixture, but they are not clear enough. I will be posting a clarification reqest on one of those posts. Will also post again after I check the diaphram.

Ryobi 700r trimmer will not run without choke


First check the fuel lines for breaks, usually found at the tank. If lines are o.k. then you will need to disassemble the carburetor and spray with carb. cleaner. Use a Den Tek Brush, (used for cleaning between teeth), to clean the small portals in the carb. Reassemble and start. If it still doesn't run any better, then you will need to buy a carb. kit and replace the small screen, gasket(s), diaphragm, & needle valve.
