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.

Repair and replace power module on bolens culivator 31cc engine


How old is it? Does it show a spark when you remove plug an hold against engine while pulling cord? Did you replace plug? It is the most common problem. Remove the stop wire an try to start, if it does or you see spark the switch is bad. I would check put these things before replacing module.

Some disassembly may be required to get to the starter/recoil unit to fix this. The unit has Torx head fasteners and some level of mechanical skill is involved. Check your warranty?

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

I have a Troy-Bilt 31cc 2-Cycle Gas Powered that doesn't start


Coil bad or wire to coil bad. I tell everyone what Ill tell you,when it comes to small engines,troy bilt,poulan,weedeater brand all JUNK,JUNK JUNK! Theyre made cheap,not built to last,theyre throwaways. Carbs are made in china. If youre ever in walmart next time go back to the garden section and pick up a weedeater or poulan brand chainsaw or trimmer. Look at the package good and look at the factory life expactancy. Its not in months,not even days,but in hours. If I was you I would tell myself NO MORE! I would buy a dolmar or stihl,pay the extray,cause you wont be aggrevated in the long run. P.S. Dolmar offers a 100% coverage for ONE YEAR on all equipement.
