SOURCE: mcculloch strimmer/brush cutter - cuts out when throttle opened

Hi sounds like it could need a diaphram kit in the carby if it has mixture screws one markedl for low speed and one marked h for high speed you can try winding out the low speed screw a bit but if that does not work it will definatly need a kit.

SOURCE: EFCO petrol strimmer - can anyone tell me how to

If you need to clean the filter, remove it from the fuel tank and blow compressed air into it, otherwise you may have to do the following:

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, 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

Loss of power

May need to let warm up longer. You usually turn the choke on to start. You then need to turn it off to accelerate. If choke is automatic it needs to be cleaned/adjusted. It would also help to add a fuel system cleaner to your fuel.

Sovereign strimmer HS-PT-2538

I had this problem once when machine was hot it was difficult to restart, I've found putting choke on slightly, about a quarter of the way, and not touching the throttle will see it starting, then put choke back off and leave it to idle for 20 - 30 seconds before using. Seems to be a characteristic of this strimmer.

Starting up Ryobi Petrol Strimmer

full choke on , push petrol bubble 5 times then pull starter cord., with luck it will kick in to life after a 20/30 secs put on half choke , run again for 30 secs the no ckoke.

The main problem with Ryobi products is that they flood very very easly. So the more time you try and pump petrol into the carb the more it will flood . If that happenes then choke off and switch off and then just pull starter cord for about 30 secs then switch on and it could start if not prime it again as above good luck

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 to solve starting problem of royal enfield disel bike?

hi! dude this is viraj ,,, i also have a 97 taurus,,, there are 2 reasons that your bike will not satrt at the very first kick (1) is that check your clutch settings if the settings are loose than your kick will give a slip resulting in a low pressure kick which is not enough for startin the engine,,,(2) if your bikes cold and you keep kicking it you will have to pump a lot of energy in it your engine will fire only after 15 to 20 kicks .... there is a sollution to this ...PULL THE DECOMPRESS LEVER WHICH IS BELLOW THE TANK ON THE HEAD AT LEFT SIDE ( NOT THE CHOKE LEVER) AND PUMP YOUR BIKE ATLEAST FIVE TO SIX POWERFULLY WITHOUT LEAVING THE LEAVER..... AND NOW START THE BIKE AS YOU DO,,,
