Question about Ryobi 15" Electric Factory Reconditioned Trimmer (ZRRY41002) - Factory Reconditioned

4 Answers

Ryobi RLT30CES Hi - I recently bought a ryobi RLT30CES strimmer. I inadvertently loaded it with unmixed fuel. It started ok, ran for about 20 minutes, then cut out and I couldn't restart it. I've since emptied the fuel and put in the correct fuel and oil mixture, but still can't restart it. I've checked the spark plug is sparking, and followed instructions to ensure I haven't flooded it, ie pulled the started with the plug out. But still no luck. Any suggestions would be gratefully received. Thanks, Marcus Rose. email: rose_marcus@jpmorgan.com

    It seems this is a design fault I have arranged to have it exchanged for a later model - Good old Screwfix

I have one of these and I have to admit they are a bit of a bug*er to start. Following the instructions though on the sheet for trying to start it eventually should kick it off and then you should be away. I start mine by alternating between no choke and the half choke with about half a dozen pulls each. generally pull with the throttle held but try a few with it off every now and again. If you get to 10 mins without success, put it down, have a drink and a rest and go back in 30 mins and try again.
I wouldnt have thought a straight petrol mix would do it any harm though, if you had over mixed with oil then that could have been a differnt story.

Mine wouldnt start at all. Undo plug and pour a few droups of the fule mixture in the cylinder head and put plug back in. Mine will the start to cough then squeeze the accelorator trigger gentle and she flies in to life. Trying to find the best plug to use.

Like many I had problems starting this strimmer but it's now been fixed.

A call to the helpdesk found that I has a 'torch' spark plug fitted, a replacement was sent and since then no problems. ... Easy.

No, running a two stroke machine on straight petrol will ruin the engine,
putting too much oil in the mix will just make it more smokey.
You may be some time trying to start that one !
I suggest that you take it to the repair man and tell him what you did.

I'm not sure about the carb. adjustment being removed. The newer carbs. only have one dial for adjustment, not the two screws like the "old school kind".It probably needs the carb. cleaned. Disassemble the carb. and clean with carb. cleaner. Use a Den Tek Brush, (used for cleaning teeth), to clean the small portals. Make sure the small screen in carb. is free of debis. The smallest of particals can cause your problem. Reassemble and try starting. If it still acts up, buy a carb. kit for trimmer and replace the needle valve, appropriate gaskets, diaphragm, and small screen. This should solve the problem.

Starting problem with a Ryobi rlt30ces petrol strimmer


Hi
I have had the similar problem & spent a day stripping the unit down
(dismantled & re-assembled the carb, seemed OK fuel reaching & flooding the plug) I unscrewed the spark plug from the body, but left it connected to the lead and found that there was intermittent spark when pulling the cord. and tested it with a continuity meter - no signal/measurement. bought a new spark plug, meter reading showed signal/measurement, now starts every time. It may be that Ryobi has been installing rather cheap nasty plugs. So test the plug first by watching the spark when pulling cord, test with a meter, if no continuity, buy new plug....


Check also that little gauze air filter behind the roto choke is not blocked.
this solved it for me.

Please remember to give me a rating ...ta

Ryobi RLT30CES


I also tried this.

  1. Clean the carb wire gauze air filter behind the roto-choke knob. (undo the nut/washers & long bolt)
  2. Deteremine if fuel is being fed to cylinder - Fully depress & prime the bulb about 7 times, turn to full choke. Pull start cord about 7 times. Remove spark plug see/smell fuel fumes/vapour present in cylinder
  3. Determine if compression is weak - remove plug, put finger over plug port, pull start cord. Should be evident of resistance/pressure build up when cord is pulled.
  4. Of course brand new plug!!! as above (I would try this first)
Hope this helps
please rate my comments - Thanks
