SOURCE: my fs 45 whipper snipper is starting but running

I have a Stihl FS 45 and have had problems with it running for a short time then cutting out. The problem is like to be either- the filter attached to end end of the fuel pick hose that goes down into the fuel tank is blocked or- there is a crackor split in the corrugated section of the fuel pick up hose between the fuel tank and the carburettor. If such a crack or split exists it will cause air to be sucked in with the fuel upsetting the fuel/air ratio. A new hose not adjustment is the only cure

Battery is NO GOOD.... need new ones, these quickly go bad, if not religiously charged and discharged. You must charge a long time when first get them, and then as soon as flat must go back on charger, for at least 4hours... regardless what is said. If ever removed before properly charged, then it will "remain" at that level, next charge and so on... All batteries MUST be flat before recharge, and full before used again, no exceptions.

My still fs36 whipper snipper runs but wont rev out


The strimmer has a small engine and therefore very small fuel passages that are very easily blocked unless a near-surgical cleanliness is observed when fueling and the air cleaner maintenance is up to date and carefully carried out.

In my experience such fuel-related problems are most likely. It is worth checking the spark plug first considering how much easier that would be. In the case of a blackened condition begin by checking the air cleaner for fouling and the cold start for correct operation.

I have replaced my ryobi whipper snipper fuel lines and now it won't stay running. What have I done wrong?


I have had exactly the same experience, and then also replaced the primer bulb, messed around with the carby mixtures, but so far it will not run for more than about 3 - 5 seconds! I have yet to resolve this problem.

My 2 stroke whipper snipper won't start


As with all 2 stroke engines,
1. Pump the fuel plug. 3 -5 times.
2. Turn the stop botton onto start.
3. Choke onto hot.
4. Pull the cord . Most important... dont touch the throttle trigger when pulling the cord. Wait until until it starts up.
If you do. (like it says in the instructions, your flooding the engine)

Works every time for me on everyone's whipper snippers.

Hi, can you tell me where each fuel line goes on an older Triton whipper snipper, (both ports on carby are at the same level, one 'big' one 'small' ).thanks....


generally the smaller line is the 'feed' line. It would have the fuel filter attatched to the end in the tank and go directly from tank to carb. The larger line would be the return line and rout from the carb to the primer bulb then to the tank.
If everything is working correctly you would see the fuel be drawn from the tank into the carb then leave the carb into the primer bulb and return to the tank.
