Question about Ryobi 30 Cubic Centimeter Curved Shaft Gas Trimmer

Open Question

How do you remove the head (line,string) holder from a ryobi weed eater, the old head is worn out and seems to be pressed on with a clamping washer to the shaft. I does not appear to unscrew like most weedeaters.

SOURCE: ryobi weed eater will only run if i hold the choke down

Mine won't spin up till it is good and warm. Check the end of the fuel line in the gas tank to see if it is clogged or dirty or slimey. Make sure the end has not fallen off.

what model is trimmer? cs30? if you found the line on it clockwise, that's your problem. on the cs30 it rotates counterclockwise if youre looking at the head while trimmer is upside down. the line has to be wound opposite direction or your going to have a MESS of string in the head.

SOURCE: I have a ryoby 31cc weed eater I need a diagrm on

Typical fuel line routing2.gif is:

One line (the one with the fuel filter in the end of it) comes out of the fuel tank2.gif and goes to the bottom fitting on the carburator. The second line comes out of the tank and goes to the bottom fitting on the primer bulb. The third section of line goes from the top fitting on primer bulb to top fitting on the carburator. Hope this helped and best wishes.

Do it yourself repair: common repairs for a weed eater Amazingly, weed eaters are one of the simplest yard tools to take care of. One of the first things you should do to keep your weed eater in good condition is to clean it. It is important not to clean your weed eater with water or gas, which may destroy the engine. The best, and easiest way to clean it is by blowing off dirt and grass with an air compressor or a leaf-blower after every use. The next most important thing to maintain on your weed eater is string. When the string gets low you can remove the lower part of the head (the part that the string comes out of) by pushing in slightly and turning the head counterclockwise. Cut the new string no shorter than 6 inches or the weed eater will not advance the string properly when in use. Thread the string back though the guides, making sure to follow the arrows on the guide. If the string is not put through the guides the right way, the head may pop off during use. Next, replace the bottom of the head by pushing and turning clockwise. You can totally skip this step by buying a string replacement cartridge. Though it is much more expensive, it saves you the trouble of having to restring your weed eater yourself. window.google_render_ad(); If you find that the head of your weed eater is worn on bottom or hard to get off to replace the string then it is time to replace it. This can be done very simply by unscrewing the two screws at the top of the head and slipping it off. Then, just slide the new one on and tighten the screws. After a few months of use, you may find that your weed eater is losing power or that it is making a strange lower pitched noise. This may be caused by a dirty filter. To check, unscrew the knob or wing nut on the carburetor. Inside you will find a small square screen, this is the filter. If the filter is gray or black then it is time for it to be cleaned. The easiest way to clean it is to blow it out with an air compressor. It can also be washed with plain water, but you must let it dry before placing it back into the carburetor. Once the filter is white or only light grey it is ready to use again. Always make sure to mix the gas and two-cycle oil in the proportions that are listed in the weed eater’s manual. Never use anything but two-cycle oil, normal car oil will not work and will damage your engine.

Ryobi weed trimmer


I have one of this trimmers. It is simple to replace the line. 
-First line up the arrows on the bottom of the spindle. 
-Then feed the line back in one of the holes in the side of the spindle (this is the same hole that the cutting string comes out of). 
-You will see the line come out of the bottom of the spindle. 
-Take that line a place it in the hole on the bottom of the spindle. 
-Leave about 9 feet of string hanging out of the weed eater (do the same with the other side). 
-Then turn the inside wheel (I can't remember if it is clock wise or counter clock-wise but it will only turn one way) most of the string is rolled into the spindle. 
-Cut the string of about 5 inches out of the weed eater. You're ready to cut!
