Check to make sure the fuel oil mixture was/is correct if it was run without oil or the oil gas mix wasnt mixed due to settling the damage could require major overhaul at a service center. i HIGHLY recommended trying some seafoam! (auto parts store or maybe wal-mart) search google for "how to use sea foam" and there will be several videos including one from seafoam that will show you how to use it properly in your application!

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.

Ryobi EX26 dies when hot, won't start, then when cool starts


This sounnds too good to be true, but believe it!

The next time you run the trimmer and it starts to die, loosen the gas cap. It should start to run again. This means that the gas cap is clogged. Either clear the gas cap or buy a new one. This should solve the problem.

If you need further assistance, just let me know.
