Check your fuel filter if you have one.
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 lightly seat the jet screws.
But before you lightly 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 lightly seat them first and then turn them back out to their orginal position before you started.

What kind of oil and gas mixture to I use for my stihl kombi?


When you buy the 5L of unleaded Petrol (the same as a car uses), mix with the recommended amount of 2 stroke Stihl oil as marked on the container that the Stihl 2 stroke oil comes in.
Do not use any make of oil other than Stihl or Husqvarna 2 Stroke. I have come across so many people who have tried to cut corners by buying cheaper oil. If you are asking the question you are obviously not going to use the saw to cut down hundreds of trees so for a few pence/cents more for each fill, give the saw the best chance to last.
I always mix the can with 2 stroke oil as soon as I arrive home from the petrol station and MARK the can very obviously as 2 stroke. If you don't use the mixture within 1 month, it is a good idea to use it up in your garden mower. That is as long as the mower does not have a catalytic converter. It will work fine on the very weak oil mixture that modern saws require.

Are you trying to start the machine without sitting on it? There may be a kill switch under the operator's seat that won't let the engine start without the operator sitting on the seat.
