    Typically, Weed Trimmers run in any position (when nothing is wrong) due to their carburetor design. This is quite puzzling in nature. Any other details like how it runs or sounds as it is shutting off.? This may be an electrical problem and a wire is loose somewhere.

The fuel line in a trimmer usually has a weighted fuel filter so that no matter which way you tilt it, the weight pulls the filter down toward the pool of fuel in the tank. If this weighted fuel filter gets caught or stuck in one corner of the tank, then it won't fall properly in the tank to the fuel level so it then runs out of fuel. Look into the fuel tank, with no fuel in the tank, and make sure it moves freely when you roll the trimmer around.

check oil level. Most likely no oil. If no oil, it ran, then got hot and as soon as you truned it off, welded itself to everything. You have a big boat anchol.

Do the basics, check the battery voltage first. If there is not enough battery voltage present when you try to engage the blades it will certainly die and may not start until the battery is either charged or replaced. There are other items to check but do this first.

Hi, recently my a/c window unit starting making a water sloushing sound then started spitting ice. Is it dying?

What you are hearing is a water buildup in the drip pan under the unit. This is caused by a clogged drain hole and/or not enough downward tilt on the rear of the unit. The rule of thumb is 1/4" to 1/2' rear downward tilt. This allows the water to flow to the rear of the drip pan and out thru the drain hole. The spitting ice, is from the fan blades hitting the water in the drip pan. Turn the unit OFF & unplug it. Then check and adjust if necessary, the things I mentioned above. Aslo, be sure that the air intake filter remains clean.

Hope this helped you and thanks for choosing FixYa.

The unit starts to drip water inside the house down the wall of the window that it is in

What you will need to do is reposition the window unit to where it is slightly tilted downwards in the rear so that the water flows out the backside.

I suspect carb. trouble. Is the compression OK? Look at the spark plug after trying to start it. If it is wet, you are getting too much fuel. The white smoke indicates that. You may need to overhaul the carb.
Go on the Stihl site and customer service for information.
