Common problem with most small two strokes in garden equipment is that they often have a mesh spark arrester screen in the exhaust, the screens clog up with coke and stop the engine from breathing, give the screen a clean and check the exhaust port for coking if the screen is not clogged. If the port is coked up then carefully scrape it and reassemble. If the problem is not coke then it will be carburation, either tuning, clogging or a diaphragm needs replacing.

Poulan pro weedeater will not start without starting fluid and wont accelerate after starting Once started the first time it is easy to restart and idles fine, just cant accelerate the motor without it...


Your carburator is clogged.
1st make sure you have FRESH gas.
Empty and clean the fuel tank
Remove and disassemble the carburator and soak it in fresh gas for about 15 minutes to disolve any gunk.

Using a can of small carburator cleaner ( available at Lowes, Home Depot etc.) blow out all the ports.
reassemble and refuel with clean fresh gas
The little carbs clog easily

My Homelite grass trimmer idles fine but when I open the throttle it stalls. How do I fix this?


Its sounds like it is running rich. Adjust your high speed adjustment screw. If the unit is older think about buying a carb rebuild kit, they run about $12.00 at your local fix it shop and if you are not in a hurry online for about $8.00 give or take S/H.

Starts but when throttled continues to die


You have carburetor problems. You will need to take the carb. off and disassemble. Clean the carb. with carb. cleaner and use a Den Tek Brush, (used for cleaning teeth), for the small portals. Check the small screen in carb. to make sure it isn't clogged. The smallest of particals can cause the carb. problems. Check the gaskets as well. Depending on how old your trimmer is, you may have to buy a carb. kit and replace the Needle valve, appropriate gaskets, diaphragm, and small screen.
