SOURCE: Ryobi SS30 Problem, please help

Hello:

Are you Sire you Used the Correct Fuel Mix Ratio?
Remove the Muffler and Look Into the Exhaust Port.
Is the Piston Scratched and Gouged or is it Smooth like Glass?
If Smooth like Glass, then Check the Carburetor for Trash.
If Scratched and Gouged, then the Wrong Mixture was Used and the Engine is Trashed and will Require a New Piston and Jug (Cylinder) Assembly (a new unit will be cheaper than the parts to repair this unit) for the Unit to Run again.
Hope this Helps.

Good Luck

Respectfully

John

If you have a spark arrester fitted, it will be blocked with carbon preventing the exhaust gases leaving. It will be behind a plate bolted to the exhaust silencer/muffler. Scrape the carbon off the wire mesh carefully, until you can see through the mesh again.

I'm not sure about the carb. adjustment being removed. The newer carbs. only have one dial for adjustment, not the two screws like the "old school kind".It probably needs the carb. cleaned. Disassemble the carb. and clean with carb. cleaner. Use a Den Tek Brush, (used for cleaning teeth), to clean the small portals. Make sure the small screen in carb. is free of debis. The smallest of particals can cause your problem. Reassemble and try starting. If it still acts up, buy a carb. kit for trimmer and replace the needle valve, appropriate gaskets, diaphragm, and small screen. This should solve the problem.

If you still don't have a spark with the new plug, then you may have a kill switch wire grounding the motor, keeping it from starting. If it's not that, then you have a bad ignition module (coil).

SOURCE: ryobi PSC 3046y3e 30 cc petrol strimmer ratios of petrol to oil

WELL IF THERE IS NO 2 STROKE OIL TANK THEN YOU MIX IT WITH THE GAS. THIS IS HOW THE ENGINE GETRS ITS LUBRICATION AND WILL BLOW UP AND SEIAZE WITHOUT IT.MOST OF THESE SMALL ENGINS RUN AR 20 TO 1. OUTBAURDS RUN AT 50 TO 1. IF YOU PUT TO LITTLE ITS NO GOOD AS MENTIONED ABOVE. IF YOU [PUT TOO MUCH IT IS NT AS BAD AS IT WILL SMOKE A BIT AND POSSIBLE FOUL THE PLUG AFTER A WHILE. I WOULD GO WITH 230 TO ONE THAT WOULD BE 20 PARTS GAS TO 1 PART OIL 20GAL GAS TO 1 GAL OIL IS THE SAME AS 5 GAL OF GAS TO 1 QUART OIL OR 2 1/2 GAL GAS TO A PINT OIL OR 1 1/4 GAL GAS TO 1/2 PINT OILM GET THE PICTURE NOW. ITS DIVISION. AFTER A WHILE OF RUNNING IF IT SMKES AND THE PLUG FOULS JUST ADD A BIT MORE GAS TO YOUR MIX AND CLEAN THE PLUS WITH AN OLD TOOTH BRUSH AND I ALWAYS MARK MY GAS CAN WITH BLACK MARKER OIL/GAS MIX 20:1 OR WHATEVER.
REGARDS, PAUL

Why does my float keep sticking on my Honda GCV160e lawn mower engine even after fitting a new carburetor?


I found a break down of the carby and I am wondering if the needle has been correctly assembled back to the float tang
there should be a small spring that attaches the needle to the float with a smaller in in the end of the needle that is coil spring loaded
This set is to provide a manual release of the needle of the seat when the fuel level falls and so prevents sticking and the coil spring arrangement is to prevent the needle allowing fuel in from the ripples in the fuel as it vibrates
Yes you bought a new carby and it ran well
However there may have been a hair in the fuel and that caused a problem that you sought to fix by taking it to a garage rather that a mower repair shop
garage mechanics seldom have an intimate knowledge of small engines and so reassembly of the carby may miss setting the needle to the float correctly
As to fuel gums etc , I would discount that as it is not old enough and left sitting long enough for that to occur
fuel left for long periods (6 months or more ) does deteriorate but an fuel stabilizer additive ( from any auto spares shop) will overcome that problem
My suggestion is that you fit an inline fuel filter to the tank hose and have the carby inspected by a honda small engine ( mower shop) to ensure that it is as was originally purchased

Had the Ryobi RHT2660DA for just under a year. Used it last year with no problems. Went to start it today and it wont start. Any ideas?


If you left it sitting since last year with fuel in it the fuel has gone bad. Today's fuel has ethenol in it and that causes the fuel to start going bad after about a month. I suggest dumping the old fuel out into a container and using new fuel.

If really helpful, please rate.

Is there a recall for ryobi 18v charger or batteries


I had similar problems with my 18V Ryobi batteries. Called Ryobi customer service, gave them the serial numbers and was told there was a 2 year warranty on them, in my case the warranty was in effect until July 2012. Took the batteries to Home Depot today and they replaced my batteries with two brand new ones. I can't complain about Ryobi customer service

Ohv 400 gardeners choice lawn mower doesn't want to start, got petrol, got oil and the air filter is clean. It's still very new, only used about three times, haven't used it for more than 6 months. Please...


Are you trying to start the machine without sitting on it? There may be a kill switch under the operator's seat that won't let the engine start without the operator sitting on the seat.

I have an old model 1975 , what miks petrol/oil is right.


Fuel/Oil Mixture
  1. Use a quality 2 cycle oil and mix it to the OIL supplier's recommended ratio. Today I use Stihl 2 cycle oil mixed @ 50:1 in a Pioneer that I purchased new in 1980. There are no gouges or scratches on the piston or cylinder and I have no carbon build up on the piston top. The manual (on stone tablets) recommends 24:1. Over the years the mixture has leaned from 24:1 (Saw Recommendation) to 28:1 (Lawn boy mower recommendation) to 32:1 (Oil provider 2gal premium/8oz chainsaw 2-cycle engine oil - used for many years) and finally the last 5 (±) years 50:1 (1gal premium/2.6oz Stihl 2-cycle engine oil)
  2. Any fuel containing ethanol is not good with chainsaws. Mix what you expect to use within a few weeks. Anything over 1.5 months old use up in a 4 cycle engine. HTH

Clean old petrol can thoroughly


Not to worry, just drain out any old gas, put in a little new gas, shake it a little, pour that out fill it up and use it. If its bad varnished w/ old gas use stuff called Seafoam pour it in, shake it up let it sit over night and pour that out use like normal.

Ryobi gas trimmer


I don't mean to over simplify this, but are you using fresh gas? Gas string trimmers are extremely ticky when it comes to gas. They like it SUPER fresh. And while the gas and oil mixture should be right, it can be off a little bit and still run. Try draining all of the gas out, and then filling up with fresh mix. This is ALWAYS my first step with string trimmers, and it fixes the problem 75% of the time.
Hope this helps!!
