Have to prime my edger to start it. She runs hot for about 30 secs and quits. It will start when I prime it and it does the same thing. Could it be a gas filter issue

Check your fuel filter in the fuel tank to make sure it is clean, if it is ok then:
Sounds like you will need to clean the carburetor or replace your carburetor internal rubber parts like the diaphgram and O rings.
Be sure to use compressed air to blow out all the fuel and air passages.
Be careful when blowing out the passages, because there are sometimes small rubber type seats in the bottom of some of the passages.
Sometimes you can get by with priming the carburetor or using starting fluid 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.
Keep in mind that the float for the carburetor must be level when you go to reassemble the carburetor or follow the instrucitons you get with the carburetor kit.
If the mower/weedeater is over a year 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 need to seat the jet screws.
But before you seat the jet screws count the number of turns it takes to seat the jet screws from their original position.
Be sure to mark the turns down on a piece of paper.
That way when you put the jets back in, you know to seat them first and then turn them back out to their orginal position before you started.

Trimmer won't prime to start


Look inside the tank. Some units have a stone inside that blocks the fuel line when it is tipped a certain way. Might be what's happening here.

TRIMMER WON'T RUN

Lawn Trimmer will not run


Have you checked the fuel line inside the tank? Usually there is a little filter on the end of the line inside the gas tank that when it gets dirty with restrict the flow of gas. Go spend $3-4 and replace and that should fix it. If it doesn't then I am guessing you probably still have something on one of the jets on the carb.
Good Luck

Starting up Ryobi Petrol Strimmer


full choke on , push petrol bubble 5 times then pull starter cord., with luck it will kick in to life after a 20/30 secs put on half choke , run again for 30 secs the no ckoke.

The main problem with Ryobi products is that they flood very very easly. So the more time you try and pump petrol into the carb the more it will flood . If that happenes then choke off and switch off and then just pull starter cord for about 30 secs then switch on and it could start if not prime it again as above good luck

Engine starts then quits


does it have a fuel filter, or air? If it does make sure they are both clean and free of debris as priming will force fuel up line but will die as soon as its burned out

Trimmer won't stay running


Most likely needs the carb rebuilt.

First check the prime bulb and fuel lines for cracks. Check the spark arrestor for carbon buildup.

Another problem could be a stuck piston ring, but try rebuilding the carb first as it is usually the source of the problem.

Lawn mower engine shuts off after about 15 secs of starting.


Possible solutions:
-Water or trash (or both) is in the gas tank which means you must empty all gas from the tank and refill with fresh gas. The carb. will need to have all old gas removed too. If this is the case you will want to empty your gas can too because it may be the source of the water/trash.

-Replace the priming bulb.
