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

Ryobi TP30 straight shaft line trimmer convertible - drive shaft disconnected from motor

The drive shaft (internal shaft inside the housing) was not turning when I put on a brushcutter attachment. I put it on my bench and was able to pull the shaft out of the casing. Can I fix this? Or do I need to get a new trimmer?

Check both ends of shaft, they're usually a hex or torx head. sometimes the can strip or even snap off. if you find noticable damage replace the shaft

I have a Ryobi 700R trimmer - I need to know how to replace the pull cord - Tom


If your pull cord is still attached to the grab handle, it's likely your spring is still wound. Follow this if this is the case:
1. Disconnect the shaft by removing the small set screw and the clamp - pull the shaft out of the engine body.
2. Remove the recoil assembly (About 5-5 torx bolts).
3. Pull the cord until the stops and use a small piece of wood acting as a wedge to jam between the recoil and the housing.
4. Cut the line and pull the knotted terminating end from the hosing.
5. Keep the wedge tight so it does not spin back. If this happens, you will simply need to rewind the spring back (about five turns) and re-wedge it.

Use proper line and reverse for new line. Good luck!

I strip the cable inside my lawn trimmer it would turn my cutter below. Is this something I can repair or must I take it to shop?


Hi and welcome to FixYa. I am Kelly. When you say you stripped the cable I am assuming that your talking about the flexible drive shaft. This can be replaced at home. However,.... ou did not state if this was a gas or electric model. At the moment I am assuming it is a 25cc Gas trimmer. To replace the flexible drive shaft the motor will have to be unmounted from the drive shaft housing. It will have 4 flat sides on each end that must mate correctly into the slots of the motor and the power head or you will not be able to re-mount the engine.

With a good model number I can provide you with a source of the replacment parts and probably what mounting hardware that has to be removed to change the fl;exible drive shaft.

Thanks for using FixYa.

RYOBI GAS WEED TRIMMER RIPCORD TANGLED


You should be able to take the housing loose with about 4-6 torx head bolts/screws and get in there and untangle the rope. May not even have to take the housing off, just loosen it. Good Luck!

I have a Ryobi RLT 30CESA with the strimmer attachment. What do I need to fit a Brushcutter blade to it


I would not put a brushcutter blade on this unit. The curved shaft quik disconnect may not hold up to the shock torque created by the brushblade. It may damage the drive shaft since it is a curved shaft quik disconnect model. You may have to purchase a straight shaft trimmer to get that job done.

What size line do I need for a Ryobi ELT1000FA Trimmer


A good Rule-of-Thumb for homeowner trimmers is:

Curved shaft trimmers need to run .065-.080 diameter line while straight shaft trimmers can handle .095-.115 diameter.

Keep in mind the kind of use the machine gets and match line diameter accordingly. Larger line may fit into the spool, but the power and RPM that's available to you will suffer because of the extra weight and wind resistance.
Hope this helps!

My Ryobi 132r don't work


THE MOTOR HAS PUSHED BACK INTO THE INTERNAL HOUSING. YOU CAN DISASSEMBLE THE HOUSING AND FORCE THE ELECTRIC MOTOR TO IT ORIGINAL SET UP BUT OVER TIME THE MOTOR WILL KEEP MOVING BACK. THE COOLING FAN WILL BEGIN TO GRIND ON THE HOUSING. THE PLASTIC, HOLDING THE MOTOR IN PLACE,WILL BREAK DOWN AND PUSH AWAY FROM THE ATTACHMENTS.
