My trimmer starts but then it quits running. I checked the plug and it is dry. Sounds to me there must be a blockage in the fuel line. Am I right?

I fixed one featherlite trimmer by replacing the feul lines but the other one starts running after being primed by the bulb and will run for 3 seconds or so and quit. Any suggestions for what to try next?


  • Alow the engine to run for longer on the start setting before you switch to run (choke turned off)
  • Ensure air filter is clean. Foam elements can be washed with hot water and detergent, squeezed dry in a cloth, and then rub about half a teaspoon of oil evenly through the foam. Paper elements can be cleaned with compressed air blown from the inside of the filter but ideally should be replaced.
  • Check fuel lines aren't kinked or blocked restricting fuel flow.
  • Ensure fuel filter isn't dirty. This is probably located at the end of the fuel line in the tank.
  • The fuel lines may have become airlocked.This can happen if the tank is run dry. If the trimmer has a primer bulb, alternatively press it several times and then try to pull start the engine with choke on. Repeat this several times. The primer bulb should feel spongy and fill with fuel.Once the engine kicks, switch to run
Ensure the choke is turning off ok when you rev the machine (automatic turn off choke)

Sounds as though the fuel filter may be plugged. The filter is in the tank. Take a look, see if it is visible. Remove and replace. Good luck...Lee

I have a 125l trimmer and it runs for about 10 minutes and then it dies. it will restart, but will not run at trimming speed.


I had the same problem. Check the fuel line right above the grommet on the tank. Mine dry rotted and had a small hole in it sucking air. The trimmer would start ok but wouldn't run long or at all wide open. Replace the fuel line and grommet (all one piece).This fixed my problem.

My ryobi lawn trimmer fuel cuts off while running and hard to start


A number of possibilities:
1. Air filter needs cleaning. Remove two screws at the side of the filter housing (has the choke control through it) and remove filter from inside. Clean in water with detergent. Allow to dry before saturating with 30SAE oil - squeeze to evenly distribute. Then replace.
2. Fuel tank is insufficiently full allowing air to get in when machine is rotated awkwardly.
3. Fuel line or carburettor jet blockage. Try a little compressedair down the line.
