Sounds like 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.
Turn the carburetor upside down with the bottom still off and be sure that the float is level and the correct distance when you reassemble the carburetor
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.

32cc trimmer stars but wont continue running


Hi donald, if your trimmer is starting but not running it sounds as if the problem is lying with either one of two things. Firstly locate the air filter and make sure it's clean. If it is then the problem is most certainly with the carbrettor. It may need the gaskets replacing to allow the suction from the engine to pull the fuel through.

GHT 225 Trimmer Replaced primer bulb, Starts OK but, will not keep running.


Try adjusting the low side screw on the carb. Back it out about 1/8 of a turn at a time until engine continues to idle. If this this doesn,t solve your problem then you will have to disassemble the carb and replace the diaphragms and fuel filter screen.

Have zrry30550 Ryobi Hedge Trimmer (reman.) I have good spark,good prime-up, but no fuel into the cylinder. Please help.


Hello. Get a can of starter fluid and a helper. Spray some into the air cleaner and start it up. Have your helper continue to spray a little starter fluid to keep it running for a minute or so. This will clear whatever blockage you have. Once it sounds like it is running well stop adding starter fluid and see. Joe

Will not idle


May be time to get the carburetor rebuilt. Sounds like the diaphragms are not working properly to pump fuel. You may need some lubrication on the throttle cable too. A little lubrication on the throttle arm would not hurt.
Good Day.

Husqvarna 324LDx 4 cycle string trimmer. Have


Probably needs a carb kit, check main jet and main fuel inlet jet, is the spark crisp, fat and powerful, try running it with a borrowed coil as this may have an intermittent fault. Is fuel cap breather working or blocked, these small carbs are very sensitive. Make sure all is well with gaskets and diagrahms. Good luck the Yeti
