Trimmers are know to have problems when left with old gas in tank. They use a little diaphragm to pump fuel, with two little flappers in a gasket that act like check valves. This rubber gets wrinkled up and the check valves won't close. Buy a carb rebuild kit either online or through your local power equipment dealer and rebuild it. There are only about 5 parts in the kit.

If it doesn't turn over when you pull the rope it could be in the starter assembly or the flywheel where the starter pawls engage it. If it turns over then you need to check for fuel, spark, air and compression.

Husqvarna SRM 225 It starts fine but dies once you give it gas.


I was having the same issue with my 128LD string trimmer. I called a local Husqvarna service dealer and they told me the issue was a result of the ethanol in the gas. They suggested I find ethanol-free gas (aka 'Pure Gas') and try it. [http://www.pure-gas.org/ was the best resource I could find for this]

After disposing of my old gas and filling the trimmer with premium grade, ethanol-free gas (with Husqvarna brand oil mix) and applying 3 squirts of carburetor cleaner to the carb, it runs radically better.

I hope that helps you too. I know how frustrating that can be.

Husgvarna string trimmer stahls.


Try getting some carb and choke cleaner and spraying down the carb. You might have some varnish in the carb and it won't let the fuel flow properly. My ryobi 4 cycle trimmer does that every year. I clean the carb and it usually runs decently.
Good luck

Will start with starting fluid but will not keep running.


check your prime bulb and fuel lines for leaks just a pin hole would cause it not to prime
