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

Open Question

No power After starting the engine on my gas powered 31cc 2-cycle trimmer, I cannot get any power. Every time I pull the trigger to give it a little gas, the engine dies. It will idle ok, but then quits when I give it gas. I have primed it plenty and there is gas in the thing.

SOURCE: Bad Carb

check the fuek lines for hole and leaks, check the fuel filter and clean if necessary. remove the carbuerator and inspect the gasket; it should be soft and flexible, if it seems hard or brittle replace it. clean the carb with carb cleaner sray (available at any local auto parts store) and compressed air. make sure you get inside the small fuel rail holes. also check the primer bulb for pin holes and proper seating/seal. if that doesn't work have the carb repaired at a service center or replaced.

Looks like oil and fuel is leaking or blowing from exhaust.


John - Husqvarna makes really good power equipment that seldom offers trouble. The unit you are talking about is a 2 cycle system, meaning you mix oil and gas together in lieu of having an oil sump at the bottom of the engine like 4 cycle motors have. First question, did you mix a bottle of One Mix 2 cycle oil to a gallon of regular gas to start off using your machine? If you did, then I would think your unit is badly flooded, which happens a lot with 2 cycle equipment. Try taking out the spark plug and see if the spark plug looks wet from too much fuel. If it is, leave the spark plug out for a day or so to allow the cylinder head to vent the gas fumes. Replace the wet spark plug with a new one and try to start the unit again. Here's a tip: If you do flood a 2 cycle piece of equipment (trimmer, chainsaw, blower, etc.) again, make sure the choke is off and hold the throttle trigger wide open. Pull the started cord several times until the unit starts to run. Keep holding the throttle wide open until it clears itself out. Remember, you run the equipment, it does not run you :-)

Get to run


I assume you mean it bogs down when you start to pull the throttle trigger? If that's the case, you need to adjust the low side CCW about a 1/4 to 1/2 turn.

Where is the fuel mixture screw on poulan pp133


On the carb. Low for initial and high for top end. Start with both at 2 1/2 turns out. Then adjust low when you pull the trigger to eliminate hesitation. Then floor it and hold while you adjust the high

I can't get it started and I"m following directions on side of machine.


Those direction are not accurate all the time, I usually prime mine 4-6 times. put mine on full choke with the trigger pressed and pull 1 time any more will usually flood it, If you have the choke that kicks off after you press the trigger, put the choke back on to half and pull the cord pressing the trigger, Then pull the cord until it starts without pressing the trigger. As before if you press and hold the trigger during the start it will flood these trimmers..This should start the trimmer. You may have to let the trimmer set for about 15 min if it was flooded.

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

If you have mixed your gas and oil to a 4 to one mix you have way too much oil in your gasoline. Drain out your fuel tank and carburetor. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------- Remove the spark plug and clean if necessary. Mix your fuel in a fuel container at 40 to one. Some sites even recommend a 50 to one mixture. (50 to one mixture is one pint of oil to 6 gallons of gasoline) Refill your fuel tank on the trimmer and try to crank, if it does not want to crank within 4-5 pulls then you may want to give it a very small shot of starting ether in the carburetor intake and try to crank again. Good Luck, I hope this helped, Please rate me, Thanks

How do you change the pull rope on a poulan 31cc gas trimmer


You have to take the unit apart. Seperate the shaft from the engine. Then take the engine off the back side. This will allow access to the starter spool, where the rope goes. If you get that far, be careful when you wind the spring. Good luck...Lee
