Before doing anything check the carb fasteners to make sure they are properly torqued as air could be leaking in making the engine not run right, also check the air and gas filters, fuel lines and anything obvious also as a possibility they might be the problem. If anything obvious like that does not work, this could be a carburator ajust problem. Many of the carbs on grass trimmers in the past few years do not have adjustment needles, everything is ported inside the carb. So without knowing anything about your machine and if you have adjust needles this is the basic procedure for adjusting. The 2 needles might completily be out of adjustment, so turn them in ( clockwise) until lightly seated so the seat is not damaged, now turn the 2 needles counter clockwise 1 turn. This is the basic adjust for most carbs to start and run, now make the adjustments. Turn the low speed needle about 1/8 of a turn at a time counterclockwise to let more gas in and try that up to 1 turn (always remember the start position before any adjustment is made). If that does not work return to start position. Now try the high speed needle with the same procedure. If that does not not work, try adjusting both at the same time. If nothing works you probably need a carb overhaul. Maybe only a cleaning or a carb kit might be needed. I hope this helps you out a little. Best regards and good luck.

Starting mac 3227 trimmer


As you have done most things, i would suggest you have a massive air leak, either through the cylinder or crankcase gasket, or through the crank seal, i think its time to pull the whole engine down and replace these items.

Poulan 6.75 Lawn mower will not start


Remove spark plug, clean and dry. Replace plug. Remove air filter. Spray WD-40 into carb opening; one second blast. Turn over engine, (pull handle). Engine should start briefly and run for 3 seconds.  If not, you are not getting spark to spark plug. If engine starts, you have a dirty carb and you can buy a rebuild kit from manufacture.

Honda em2500 starts, runs 1 minute, quits and will not restart


If the oil level is low it will do this, but I also know this to happen when the oil is very cold (thick) an won't fow back own o the crankcase where the oil sensor is. The slow return results in a low oil level. My solution is to start it, when it dies wait a couple of minutes and retry... after a few starts, the oil will warm up, thus flowing back down faster and it then will run. Another option is to use a thinner oil ie;5-30w.

Primer button Ryobi lawn hornet


Vacuum created by piston operation after closing the choke pulls fuel into carburetor port into engine. In much the same way as the primer bulb provides fuel for the port. These type engines usually take a few more pulls before they will start. And if there are any leaks in carb. system will be very hard to start.
