Sounds like you will need to clean your carburetor.You could have gotten some gas with some trash in it or your gas container has trash in it.
Sometimes you can get by with priming it a few times, and letting it run a few times like that and it will flush the gunk out of the jets,but most of the time you will need to rebuild the carburetor.
If the mower/weedeater is over a couple years old, then I also recommend that you buy and install a new carburetor repair kit,because the diaphragm will get hard and that will cause it to be hard to crank.
When you clean your carburetor and remove the jet screws, You will first seat the jet screws and count the number of turns it takes to seat the jets from their original position.
That way when you go to put the jets back in, you know how many turns they were in/out.

Good Luck,
I hope this helped

Why my weedeater idle to high and why air bubble in the primer bulb?


Its not un common to have air in the primer bulb, Check for a possible air leak in the system. This will make the saw idle higher than normal if its sucking air from elsewhere.

If the primer bulb is sticking down then, first try taking the gas cap off and pumping the primer. If this solved your problem, the duckbill valve built into the gas cap needs to be replaced, or you can replace the whole gas cap. If this didn't solve your problem, you have a clog somewhere else in the system or an internal problem with the carb. Try taking a pair of needle nose pliers and pulling both fuel lines out of the tank. Take the fuel "filter" off of the line and try pumping the primer. If it sticks down still, your problem is inside the carb. A rebuild kit would probably fix it if you are confident in tearing down and reassembling the carb, otherwise you can just replace it for about 30 dollars.

siphon out the old fuel and put brand new fuel in the tank. Change the air filter even if it looks ok. Put in a new spark plug. Then get a can of starter fluid and an assistant. Squirt some starter fluid into the air intake and start it up. have your assistant continue to spray the starter fluid for a minute or so until it runs on its own. J.

On these types of motors that could be the problem, another thing to check is the primer bulb. I have had a primer bulb that had a small crack in it which went undetected for a while. These types of motors do not have a fuel pump and they work on a siphon type mechanism, if there is an air leak dealing with the gas tank anywhere, that is your problem.

Routing of fuel lines for a weedeater bv200 type 2. Which lines go where from the carb into the tank?


The line with the filter goes to the bottom of the carb. The other line goes to the outlet side of the primer bulb and the other line from the primer bulb goes to the top of the carb (The primer sucks gas through the carb).
Good luck!
Ps. if you are not sure which nipple of the primer is the outlet port then put your finger on one of the ports and push the bulb. If the bulb stays ridged then that's the outlet and if it collapses but doesn't fill but up then that's the inlet side.
