Clean the carburetor and replace the spark plug and air filter. Also make sure the oil/ fuel ratio is correct.

After you have done all the suggestions #1 gave you, make sure the tubings are good. They deteriorate over time. Also be sure to check the spark arrestor. This is part of the muffler. Good luck

Hello su2yak2:

From your Description it Sounds like the Exhaust Port or Muffler is Restricted with Carbon Deposits, the Carburetor Metering Pump Actuator Gap is Incorrect.
>>The Following is a Basic Instruction File for Doing a Diagnostic on the Engine for this Problem. Any Input is Appreciated.
>>**Remove the Muffler and Make Sure the Exhaust Port is Clear.
>>If it is, then Try to Start the engine with the Muffler Off.
>>If it Starts and Runs Properly, then Clean the Spark Arrestor Screen in the Muffler or Replace the Muffler if Required.
Is the Fuel Line from the Fuel Filter Staying Full of Fuel?
The Carburetor Metering Jet Actuator is Set so the Pump Diaphram Dowl is Just Touching the Actuator Arm. These Components are Located Under the Cover with 4 Small Screws Holdong it to the Carburetor Body.
Please, Do Not Hesitate, If you Hit a Snag or this Does Not Correct the Problem, I am Here if You Require More Assistance.
Hope this Helps. Let me Know What Happens, Please. May the All Mighty Bless You and Yours. Be Safe and Be Happy. Thanks.

Good Luck

Respectfully

SOURCE: poulan trimmer , will not stay running ?

Check the fuel lines for cracks/breaks. If they are o.k., then:

You will need to disassemble the carburetor and spray with carb.cleaner. Make sure the small screen is free of debris. (Should be able to see daylight 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 you need further assistance, just let me know.

SOURCE: trimmer starts but the spool wont turn anymore

you're trimmer could have one of two problems, One, if it has a clutch on the engine,( the way you would tell is if it doesn't spin when it idles. it has a clutch) Two, your trimmer would spin all the time, they use round flexable cables stamped square on both ends, which fit into square sockets one at the engine one at the trimmer head, so you're problem is either a worn out clutch, or, the cable is broken, or, one maybe both sockets have become rounded out. I hope this helps you out. Bob

Trimmer dies


If the bulb is cracked or gummed up inside it maybe starving the trimmer for gas. You stated you rebuilt the carb I was just wondering did you adjust it after the rebuild also did you put the same size needle jet back into it. In addition, did you change the screen for the jet they get gummed up and the screen will fill with residue most times.

The fuel filter in the tank could be plugged, a fuel line gone bad, or the primer bulb has cracked, gotten hard, or otherwise rendered useless. It's possible that the lower chamber diaphragm in the carburetor is bad--hardened or cracked. The primer is supposed to pull fuel from the filter in the tank, into and through the carburetor, then out to the primer bulb, then back into the tank through another line. Go to: http://www.drystacked.com for a 12 page article on Walbro brand carburetors--very helpful. Hope this helps!

Primer bulb doesn't pump gas


Does the primer bulb pop back out or does it come out slowly? Is the inline hose in good shape or has a crack where it can **** air in? Did you check to see if the diaphgram in the carb is pliable or is it paper-like and needs replaced. Or your carb could be stopped up.
Only one problem..I can't think of any weedtrimmer that has an inline fuel filter. They are usually located in the gas tank.

Craftsman trimmer won't prime


A new carburetor would be simplest solution. You could try disassembling the carb, cleaning and replacing diaphrams, but just replacing the carb would be my choice. What is the model # on the trimmer and I can tell you the part # of the carb you need.
