Sounds like you have trash or debris in your carburetor jet and you will need to clean your carburetor.
Be sure to use compressed air to blow out all the fuel and air passages.
Sometimes you can get by with priming the carburetor 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.

If it's the one that comes 'out' of the primer bulb it is the return line that goes in the fuel tank.

Repair weed eater


If you see gas in the primer bulb it is pulling in gas to the bulb. If not check for cracks in the bulb assembly and check to see if the fuel lines are not off their fittings and not cracked.

Where can i find a primer bulb for my weed eater ght-17...it's split. Do i need another part or can I just get the primer bulb?


You can get a primer bulb at any local lawnmower repair shop. These are less than 5.00 and very easy to install. the bulb primer is sold by it's self.

Best of it

Took tank off weed eater and not sure how the lines go back on


The line with the fuel filter in the end comes out of the tank and it goes to the bottom fitting on the carburator. The other line comes out of the tank and goes to the bottom fitting on the primer bulb, and the third section goes from the top fitting on primer bulb to top fitting on carburator. Got it? lol Hope this helped and best wishes.

Can,t prime fuel with primer ball on my weed eater XT 400, lots of fuel and lines look good


be sure the line in the tank did not disconnect. that would cause you to pump all you want but never get a drop.
