Question about Ryobi Garden

1 Answer

My Ryobi RY30550 trimmer will start and run for a short time but will then only run at full throttle. If I try to let the engine idle, it will stall as soon as I try and pull the throttle. Once the engine is warmed up it becomes hard to restart.

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.

Ryobi s430 will idle but will stall out when throttle opens. This carburetor has one idle adjustment screw and one fuel mixture screw.


Those carbs are a pain. Try arousing the idle screw, turun it to the right, then try to see if it will idle. You will have to tinker with the adjustment screw and the idle screw. Eventually you're gonna need a new carburetor. You can rebuild it, BUT , chances are those cheap carburetors never are the same.

What are the settings on the carb. How many turns out arfter they are both in all the way.This is on the ryobi weed eater. gas carburetor.


Turn the needles clockwise until they just seat out (stop) gently, do not force or you will ruin needles and seats. Just use your thumb and first finger on the screwdriver handle to do this so you will not put too much pressure on the needles and seats. Turn left needle 1 turn out counterclockwise ( left needle or one closest to engine is L setting) turn right needle out 1 1/4 turns counterclockwise (right needle or one closest to choke is H setting)...this should allow the engine to start...if engine floods or stalls you may have to close the needle a bit in or out in 1/4 turn increments until engine starts. Once started turn L needle in or out till you get a good steady idle (may take you a couple of tries to find the sweet spot...we're talking small adjustments...won't take much) once a good Idle is achieved... open the needle about 1/16 to 1/8 turn. Throttle up to full throttle and do the same with the right needle until you get smooth running at full throttle. Once you find the best full setting...open the right needle about 1/16 ti 1/8 of a turn to make the mixture a little rich at full throttle.This will enrich the mixture and allow more lubrication and cooling of the engine...let engine return to idle and see if you have good response from low to high speed...you may have to repeat this a couple of times...Now shut down engine and remove the spark plug...you want to see a brownish gray deposit on the ceramic and electrode....if you see it you are there !!! It may take you a couple of tries....but be patient..

Are you running a gas/oil mix? If you are try making sure you didnt add too much oil (will usually smoke) and will possibly stall. Your air fuel mixture may be off and need adjusting too.

Ryobi 720r trimmer starts ok but stalls when the


The carburator needs to be adjusted a little, thin our your mixture screw when the trimmer is warmed up and idling. Well how do you get it to idle? I usually have to play with the choke lever with the throttle wide open going from choke to partial choke as needed to keep it running. Adjusting can be tricky, you need a small screwdriver. Screw all the way in then back out 3 to 3.5 turns. this should get you close. Adjust idle as needed.

You need to rebuild the carburetor. You will need to go to an outdoor power & equipment store of some kind to get a carburetor kit for your specific trimmer. It will come with various gaskets, (some of which you won't use), a needle valve, and a small screen that goes in the carb. Replace all old parts with new. New primer bulb is sold seperately. When you have the carb. apart, you will also need to clean the small ports with a Den Tek Brush (used for cleaning teeth). Use carb. cleaner when cleaning.
