Have you checked for blocked muffler screen or exhuast port/ muffler

I can get my trimmer started but when I try to accelerate the trimmer from idle it stops

sounds like typical carburator issues.Pull carb apart and clean jets if it idles than slow jets are good so its more than likely your high idle jet.

I have owned my Model 224L Trimmer less than 60 days, last night I tried to use it and the trimmer head would only engage occasionally. It would start to spin then disengage, even when I had all the right...

It sounds like a warranty issue, up at the engine you have a centrifugal clutch bolted to the flywheel, as the engine speeds up the clutch expands and engages with the drum, this in turn rotates ans turns a flexible shaft within the tube, this engages into the gear box and turns the gears that turns the head, so i would say the flexible shaft is either slipping in the drum, or the tube or gearbox has moved out board so is now too short to engage into the drum.

Starts fine but when I pull the trigger the engine stops.

There are two screws on the side of the carburettor, H & L, if it is ticking over all right don`t touch the low (L) screw but slowly adjuse the high (H) screw in or out a wee bit until it runs. Stephen.

Engine starts but dies when I pull throttle trigger

you need to adjust the high speed needle turn it out in 1/4 increments as you throttle it, low speed may have to come out alittle but do high speed first. I had to answer this as I use to have a pastor john in sturgeon bay, miss him alot.
