Open Question

31cc weed eater, Bolens brand, changed spark plug when engine would not remain running - revs up, then stalls. Now, in full choke it will idle - but as soon as choke is moved from 1 to 2, the engine revs, then dies - but I can stop the stall by returning the choke to full (0). Any ideas? I did adjust the carb screw + and - . . .

SOURCE: redmax weed wacker wont stay running

Have these unit been stored with fuel in them or sitting around for a long period of time? If so the carbs may need to be overhauled. Also check for a clogged fuel filter and vacuum test the fuel lines for cracks.

SOURCE: Snapper SS312 weed eater. Cranks when primed but won't run

I am sorry to say this, but the compression for that type of engine should be atleast 120 psi. Remove the muffler and look at the cylinder, it is scarred beyond repair.

Why won't my FeatherLite FL-20C weed eater will not stay running when I put it in full choke. What could be wrong?


It should run ok after warming up. After starting it, let it run for a minute or so and then try gradually opening the choke. You might try increasing the throttle setting at the same time. After the motor is hot, if you have to have the throttle setting increased in order to keep it running it means the idle setting needs to be increased, usually by turning a screw to keep the fuel valve from closing so much, or that there is a problem with the fuel flow......like a clogged jet or fuel passage in the carb.

Weed Eater Problems


If it runs with the choke closed then it's not getting enough gas. Check the gas filter on the end of the gas line in the gas tank. Remove the gas cap and using a piece of wire with a hook on the end, reach in the tank and pull the gas line out through the opening. Check the filter on the end of it. You could also have a burst-ed diaphragm in the carburetor. This sucks the gas from the tank to the carb. If that's the case a new weed eater may be in order unless you can find someone with the parts to repair it. Also check the gas lines for leaks or breaks, 2 of them.

I have a ryobi weed eater clean carb change filter and spark plug wont run off choke


I have the same problem. It will run if I put it halfway between Half Choke and Full Choke. But, just dies if I put it on Run or Half Choke. Don't ever loan your WE to anyone, They might just try to run it on straight gas--That is what happened on another week eater that I had.

Weed eater GTI 17 won't run on high speed


A couple of things may work...
Make sure you have the correct Oil / Fuel mixture, if it is incorrect the motor may have problems running.
Also take off the bottom where the cord is wound up, make sure there hasn't been any grass get wound up inside it, this will cause it to stall out on high RPM.
