Question about Ryobi 15" Electric Factory Reconditioned Trimmer (ZRRY41002) - Factory Reconditioned

Open Question

A reconditioned 2-year old Ryobi RY41002 stopped working.

I own a reconditioned 2-year old Ryobi EL15 M/N RY41002. Today I replaced the trimmer head. The trimmer worked O.K. for 15 minutes, then quit. I checked for power. Power O.K. I shortened the electric cable run. Still no response. Can you help me determine what is wrong with the trimmer?

SOURCE: My Ryobi 15" ElectricTrimmer ZRRY41002 Not Operable

[The previous posted solution was garbled by the forum software.]

I was thinking about purchasing this product from Amazon sometime soon (today being 4-26-2008). However after reading of the above problems I am not so sure anymore. However I did find a discussion about this problem at the Ryobi forums at " http://209.235.218.9/dc/dcboard.php?az=show_topic&forum=112&topic_id=597 ". (If the link does not work go to " http://209.235.218.9/dc/dcboard.php " and do a search for " 597 ". One of the displayed threads will be entitled "weedeater problem?" It will have the proper link to the discussion.) From the multiple postings in that thread it appears that the switch is the problem and it seems to be a consistent problem for many users. The switch itself can be replaced for less than $4, however the shipping seems to drive the cost up to anywhere from $12 to $15, unless one can find a local supplier. I hope that this helps.

TJ, I've had the same problem since yesterday and I found the solution (lots of googling - that's how I found your post BTW).
It turned out that the switch malfunction is a common problem.

The part number for the FA3-4 switch is:

ut41002a-36 ("switch assembly")

Available here (thru Amazon):
http://factorylawnandgarden.com/product/553902/B000PLVCX8/SWITCH_ASSEMBLY_UT41002A_36/

It's a Homelite part, which is identical to Ryobi.

Here is the manual showing it (part 6):

Here is the thread with the solution:

SOURCE: One year old Ryobi s430 4 stroke trimmer will not start.

Check the fuel lines for cracks/breaks. If they are o.k., then:

Youwill need to disassemble the carburetor and spray with carb.cleaner.Make sure the small screen is free of debris. (Should be able to seedaylight through it.)

Use a Den Tek Brush, (http://www.drugstore.com/products/prod.asp?pid=165357&catid=1152),to clean the small portals in carb. These portals can become blocked. Reassemble and start.

If the carb. parts are more than 4 years old, you may have to replace them.

If you need further assistance on:
1. Fuel line replacement or
2. Carburetor kit replacement

Just let me know.

SOURCE: I cannot remove the head

Being new, I'd return it if the the head flew off. When you say head I see the Engine head coming off and the engine be a total mess. What part are you actually talking about. Is it plastic or aluminum? Here is a link to PDF doc that you can download. If your talking about the part with the string that cuts, which I think you are, you need to screw it back on and make sure you have a something that is locking the screw in place while you screw it down. You can use the special tool that should have been included with the weed eater or use a Phillips head screwdriver in the locking hole to hold that mounting bolt steady for you. I found a pretty good picture of the process in the manual I found here :

SOURCE: I have an electric RYOBI weed eater and I need

Unscrew thw bump nut to remove the spool. Take a length of about 6 foot of line, kink it in the middle and pass this through the hole in the spool. Wind the two lengths of line around the spool in their own divisions and in the same direction. The direction of wind is embossed in the reel and the line should be wound tightly and held all the while. When you have about 6-8 inches left in your hand, bring the cover up to the spool and carefully pass the two ends of the line through the holes, push the cover all the way over while pulling on the two pieces of line and ensuring that the lines stay on their own side of the division on the spool. Fit and tighten the bump nut and trim the lines to just about the cut-off blade.
The lines should trail out of the holes in the direction of the machine's rotation. Try cut with the tip of the line as much as possible. Cutting nearer the drum flexes the line and will lead to early breaking of the lines. Run the motor at a constant speed and rather move the cutting head in and out of the weeds to affect a deeper cut

How do i get trimmer line holder cap off my electric ryobi trimmer rlt 1038


Hi, I wished I had read this before I bought my rlt1038, I used it for
8 mins and 1) long grass caought around the drive head, 2) I tried to undo the screw holding the line head. Fortunately I have a wide pair of foot prints to go across the line head and a central heating pump adjustable spanner- after 5 mins I had undone it. Yet another bad design !
Good Luck

Engine runs but no power to the head


It could be simple. Sounds like the drive cable came loose or broke. You could get an estimate from a repair shop -- probably not terribly expensive.

Ryobi is Japanese for "Piece of ****" My suggestion is to throw it out!
My 767r has had fuel line and carb trouble from day one. I'll never buy another Ryobi or Craftsman tool again.
