Why does my hedge trimmer die after a few minutes operation


This sounds like worn main bearings beginning to seize. Worn bearings generate more heat which causes the metal bearings and their races to 'swell," thus getting tighter and generating more heat until the drag of the bearing friction is greater than the power of the motor. Eventually you can't restart it until the engine has fully cooled down.

How to start


Full choke until it tries to start, half choke until it does, and once it's running, open the choke fully and wait a few seconds for it to warm up before using it, as well as 15-20 seconds to let it cool down before shutting it off so as not to warp any metal parts of the engine

My hedge trimmer will not start... Put in new gas


It's not getting gas, due to being gummed up with old gas. Remove all of the old gas and mix up a batch of fresh gas&oil. Also get some carb cleaner. Put just a little of the gas&oil mix plus an equal part carb cleaner. Try to start it just to work the new mixture through the carb. You might use the spray start to help pull the new gas through. If it fires up on the new gas&oil&carbcleaner mix, shut it off and let it sit for an hour or two. Drain it out and try just a little gas&oiil without the carb cleaner. If all is well fill the tank. If not, repeat the whole process. If you can't clear the gum this way you may have to remove the carb to clean it. Good luck.

Engine was running fine and all of a sudden it started running slower until it died. It sounds like it is starving for fuel. Replaced the in line in-tank fuel filter with no effect. After it dies I will...


Check your fuel cap....try running your machine with the cap loose or off...you may have a clogged fuel tank vent... also check all the fuel lines to the carburetor to be sure none of them have degraded or have air leaks....also check your muffler to be sure it is not clogged ...hope this helps...;-D

Remington Axcess hedge trimmer wont run at all.


Check your fuel lines. It is probably getting air into the system. Also check inside the gas tank to make sure the fuel pick up line is still attached.


If you need more assistance please provide an exact model number and I can better help you.

Cuts out after 10 minutes


Sounds like fuel tank vent problem , air has to get into tank
sometimes its vented by fuel cap but a lot of hedge trimmers use
a duck bill valve right thru tank or hooked to hose .
To test if this might be the problem loosen gas cap when it starts to die .
good luck
