Take the air filter out and clean it. Then, remove the spark plug and try to pull on the pull string. If you can't turn over the engine with the plug removed, then disassembly to reach the starter/recoil unit will be required.if you can turn the engine over, pull on the starter several times to dispel any raw unburned gas/oil fuel. You possibly have other fuel or spark related issues, but we need more information to give any diagnosis or solutions.

I have a sears 2 cycle mini tiller that worked great for the first hour but now won't start.


Do not use pre-mix fuel. Clean carburetor. Check age of gas. Cannot be more than 30 days old.
Make sure to use fresh gas w/synthetic 2-cycle oil @ 40:1 ratio (1 gal.) Gas to 3.2 oz. Oil) .Do not use old or stale oil/gas mixture. Always use the proper oil/gas mix. If you do not, your engine will suffer rapid, permanent damage.

Sluggish gas trimmer


Make sure you have a good gas to oil mixture, My 25cc 1999, is 50:1, Be sure you're not sucking air from faulty fuel lines or fuel line connections. Make sure the air filter is clean, and oiled if it requires oil. Turn your idle screw in till it stops, then start at 1 1/4 turns out, and then an 1/8 of a turn at a time if all else has been checked and is well... You will adjust the idle screw till you can Idle without giving it gas, (after the engine is warm)... If you have a high air/fuel mixture screw, screw it in until it stops.(Do not over tighten). Screw out 1 1/4 turns... Adjust these two screws 1/8 of a turn at a time until there is power all the way through the RPM range. Oh... And check your plug... if it is wet or black and sooty , then clean or replace it, it should be a golden brown with no soot.

I have a gas operated 31cc Craftsman model number 316.798221 weedwacker trimmer 17 I mixed fuel with 2 cycle engine oil using a 4 to 1 ratio. The trimmer no longer starts. It seems as if it is about to...


If you have mixed your gas and oil to a 4 to one mix you have way too much oil in your gasoline. Drain out your fuel tank and carburetor. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------- Remove the spark plug and clean if necessary. Mix your fuel in a fuel container at 40 to one. Some sites even recommend a 50 to one mixture. (50 to one mixture is one pint of oil to 6 gallons of gasoline) Refill your fuel tank on the trimmer and try to crank, if it does not want to crank within 4-5 pulls then you may want to give it a very small shot of starting ether in the carburetor intake and try to crank again. Good Luck, I hope this helped, Please rate me, Thanks

It wont start


First, make sure that the gas mixture is correct (gas and oil mixed in the right proportion). Next, press the primer bulb 3-4 times, turn the choke lever on to Full Choke, and pull the starter cord until the engine seems like to wants to start, but dies. Next, switch the choke lever to Half Choke and start the gas trimmer, giving it gas by pulling on the trigger. Once it has warmed up fully, you may be able to reduce the Half Choke to No Choke, although my 20+ years of experience with dozens and dozens of models tells me that many trimmers run better, although smoking slightly, when you keep them at Half Choke. One last tip, when pulling the cord, try pushing the trimmer away from you with the opposite hand at the exact same time that you are pulling the starter cord--the equal and opposite push-pull technique may sound like something from karate (and it is, in a way), but it is really helpful when trying to start trimmers. Best of luck, Bill

PS: Check you owner's manual (at home or online) for the proper gas/oil mixture. Empty any old gas out and replace the spark plug, if required.

Trimmer won't stay running without starter fluid


drain any old gas/fuel mixture out of unit.
purchase new gas and mix with oil as recommended for your engine.
clean the air filter on the unit.
pull the spark plug and clean with carb spray and reinstall...

you also may need to remove the carb and clean any jets with carb spray... old gas can turn into a shellac'ish type goo and foul up the works...
I recommend draining all fuel after usage...
