SOURCE: Ryobi string trimmer 32.1 what do mix gas and oil or just gas?

Ryobi trimmers I have had use a 32:1 oil mix. Just pick up a little bottle of Ryobi 2-cycle oil and read it to see that it will give a 32:1 mix in a gallon of gas. Pour it into a gallon of gas, and maybe a little fuel stabilizer too, shake it up and you should be good for the season.

SOURCE: 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!

SOURCE: do you use mixed gas for a ryobi weed eater??

Unless it has a tag or decal on it saying it is a 4 cycle then it uses mixed gas/oil at about a 50:1 ratio. Straight gasoline will freeze the piston in the cylinder in mere minutes.

SOURCE: Ryobi 40cc chain saw, pull cord won't turn rotar assembly

I had the same problem with my 18 inch Ryobi saw. The problem is the tabs that engage the recoil to the flywheel are of poor quality steel and they bend out of position. The end result is when you pull tyhe rope it just jumps and wont start. Eaven the new parts do the same thing. Simple soultion is remove the recoil starter four screws require a torx bit or a flat screwdriver. after your remove the recoil starter using a pair of pliers bend the two tabs upwards untill they are not quite straight up (about a 80 degree angle be carefull not ot brake the tab off) once you have done this remove the center nut that holds the flywheel on. the silver pins that hold the tabs in position need to be punched out but remember how they go back by doing only one at a time and remember how the spring is installed. Turn the flywheel over and using a punch and hammer remove the pins. Put the tabs in a vise to hold them sucerly clean the steel as best you can on the inside of the bend. Fill the bend with brazing rod or coat hanger if you haven't got any brazing rod avilable. You don't have to com;leatly fill the bend but put enough in there to suport the tabas so they can't bend agin. Reassemble the saw and you're done. Mine works great now, better than new. This problem isn't limited to recon saws only, mine is a new saw and I still had the problem. Good luck herbdogs

Ryobi problems


Sorry not to have better news. The plastic housing on that trimmer is not strong enough to support the drive gears. Ryobi has discontinued that model.

I have had mine apart several times. The housing for the gear cogs is plastic and flexes. I've tried to reinforce it and added spacers between the plastic housing and the bearings that support the drive shafts in attempt to force the teeth together. But the trick only lasts for a few minutes. As soon as I start to cut with it, it stops again. It's just not worth the time, effort and frustration to continue working on it just to have it stop working again.

I finally discarded the Ryobi unit and purchased one with a metal (aluminum) housing. I think it is a Poulan Pro model from Walmart. It has worked well.

I have a 26cc ryobi weed trimmer--primer bulb will not draw fuel, but will draw fuel when I loosen the 2 screws that hold down the bulb


Possible issues:
1. Primer bulb or bottom assembly has crack or hole in it (needs replacing). See ebay for about $6.00
2. Fuel lines are not sealing to the primer nipples properly (cut line and re-attach if you have sufficient line available) otherwise; replace.
3. You may be somehow kinking the fuel lines when you clip it back in place due to fuel lines too short
My bet: #1 or #2. Good luck!

You should be able to take the housing loose with about 4-6 torx head bolts/screws and get in there and untangle the rope. May not even have to take the housing off, just loosen it. Good Luck!
