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

1 Answer

"warm" starting I have a Ryobi RLT30CES strimmer that I'm trying to use with the hedge trimmer attachment. It started from cold, eventually. When it's hot I can stop it and restart it OK. But after it has cooled down a bit but it's still warm I cannot restart it. I've had the spark plug out - bone dry, not flooded. There's no trace of petrol in the cylinder and no vapour of it: almost as if the engine is never getting any. But when it does start, it then runs OK.

    After over 250 pulls over 6 days only got 2 starts and then when warm failed to restart.



    Having difficult returing it to supplier (Robert Dyas) as their Customer serivce number is alway blocked with calls.



    Have a lot of 2 stroke kit and this is seems to have an intermittent fault - no flooding taking place.

Hi
You may have tried this already, Apologies if you have.

I have had the same 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....this solved it for me

Sounds like the cable in the upper shaft is broken. Start it without the attachments installed and see if the cable is turning.

Starting up Ryobi Petrol Strimmer


full choke on , push petrol bubble 5 times then pull starter cord., with luck it will kick in to life after a 20/30 secs put on half choke , run again for 30 secs the no ckoke.

The main problem with Ryobi products is that they flood very very easly. So the more time you try and pump petrol into the carb the more it will flood . If that happenes then choke off and switch off and then just pull starter cord for about 30 secs then switch on and it could start if not prime it again as above good luck

Hedge trimmer starts fine then stops after 5 minutes


Carburetor high speed adjustment ( screw nearest the filter ) open ( counterclockwise ) 1/2 turn.
Adjust again as needed to run when hot.
make sure the gas mixture ratio is as required.

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

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.
