I cannot remove the head on my ryobi S430 gas trimmer. I started it up this afternoon and the damned head flew off. This is a new trimmer and the manual is horrific.

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 :

I have a Ryobi s430 that starts and runs and throttles up fine when level but will stop if I tilt it to start using it even if I have the throttle pulled. Acts like its bogs down when not level.


Investigate the fuel line inside the fuel tank. Sounds like it may be split or cracked, or broken off. The line has a weighted pick up filter, and it is very common for the line to crack or break off so that when tilted, the line is above the fuel level.

When in operation the Ryobi S430 string trimmer leaks oil continuously. How can I fix this problem?


Ryobi told me the unit can't have the s430 trimmer bottom end raised higher than the engine at any time, or it will leak. Apparently they released a product to compete with other companies for cheap 4 cycle trimmers without much care for the end user.

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.
