Open the cover over the carburetor/air cleaner and watch the throttle arm on the carburetor while you move the throttle trigger. It should go from idle stop to full stop and return to idle stop when trigger is released. If mechanically ok, then look for a very loose carburetor mounting to the engine or a broken heat insulator block between the carburetor and engine--a bad air leak can cause the engine to race uncontrollably (but will cause other damage if allowed to continue). If the throttle arm is holding open, then take the trigger assembly apart at the handle (make notes as you disassemble to get it back together correctly). Look for sawdust obstructing the trigger. Hope this helps!

A friend of mine gave me a zr series ,625cdv homelite weed eater and I can't figure out how to adjust the carb. Bought a new primer bulb it crank and run for a little bit but I have to idle it high


Screw in the HIGH and LOW needle valves. Then turn each one out 1 full turn, That should be a good starting point.
After engine is running Run engine at Full throttle. Loosen HIGH screw until the engines RPM slows a bit. When that happens Turn screw back in until it revs high and then just starts to slow again. You do not want the engine to run at it's highest RPM or it's not getting enough Lubrication It need to run Rich, that's why you screw the screw in a bit after the engine has reached it's highest RPM. Let it idle down . Then Accelerate hard, if it hesitates, loosen or tighten the LOW until it accelerates quickly with no hesitation.

Blower won't start


I would start off by cleaning the carb. Sounds like it's all gunked up. Is it old? Sounds like it needs a full tuneup. Change the plug, put some fresh gas/oil in there, and clean that carb out with cab fluid.

THIS SOUNDS LIKE A CLASSIC FUEL STARVATION, PROBLEM
CHECK FOR RESTRICTONS IN THE FUEL LINE, FUEL TAP, AND THROTTLE BODY, YOU MAY BE ABLE TO REMOVE A DRAIN SCREW IN YOUR THROTTLE BODDIES TO LET OUT ANY OLD FUEL OR WATER WHICH MAY HAVE FOUND ITS WAY IN TO THE SYSTEM,

i would check the throttle butterfly for a carbon build up that may keep it from closing completely. have seen this cause stalling when returning to idle rpm. Best to try to remove and clean from both sides to get good results.this is just one of many possible problems. Hope it helps if so please let me know with a reply and good luck

Hello judy_keough2:

>>The Following is the Instruction File for Setting the Air Mixture Screws. Any Input is Appreciated. The Procedure is the Same for 1 or 2 Mixture Screws, Just Use the Instruction File and Skip Over the Section with the Missing Mixture Screw ( Usually the H Mixture Screw).
>>Now Setting the Air Mixture Screws:
>>****Turn the Idle Air (L) and Main Air (H) Mixture Screws In Until SNUG **Do Not Jam** Then Reverse Both Screws 1 1/2 Turns. Set the Throttle Full Open, Start the Engine.
>>Turn the Main Air (H) Mixture Screw Clockwise Until Proper Revs are Obtained. **Carefully Use your Finger and Move the Governor Arm to Rev the Engine (on Chainsaws and Trimmers Use the Trigger to Rev the Engine) Until you Reach Max RPMs (on Chainsaws and Trimmers, the RPMs are Not Set to MAX. Set to Max and then Reverse the Setting Screw 1/4 or 1/2 Turn. If the H Mixture Screw is Set too High; the Engine will be Starved for the Oil in the Gas and Damage the Piston and Jug/Cylinder) and the Engine is Running Proper at Full Throttle Up a Grade and for Chainsaws and Trimmers they Do Not Bog DOwn Under a Load. Occasionally you May have to Turn this Counter Clockwise to Achieve the Proper Revs.**
>>Now Allow the Engine to Idle. Set the Engine Idle Screw (Not Idle Air) so the Engine will Stay Running if Required.
>>Now Set the Idle Air (L) Mixture Screw so there is No Hesitation when Rapidly Throttling from Idle to Full Throttle. Reset the Engine Idle if Required.****
Please, Do Not Hesitate, If I Missed Something or you Hit a Snag or this Does Not Correct the Problem, I am Here if You Require More Assistance.
Hope this Helps. Let me Know What Happens, Please. May the All Mighty Bless You and Yours. Be Safe and Be Happy. Thanks.

Good Luck
