It will be on the muffler. What you are looking for is a screen mesh. If you cannot see through this mesh then you need to clean it before putting it back into the muffler. You can clean it with a propane torch and burn off the carbon deposits.

How can I clean /remove muffler & spark arrester on my ryobi cs30-ry30120 ?

There are two torx head screws in the muffler. If you take these out the muffler comes apart.The first thing to come off is the outer cover of the muffler. After that there are 3 more screws (the part description only says pan head) that hold the outlet tube on, under this outlet tube is the spark arrestor screen. You can clean the screen by heating it up until the carbon on it turns a red/orange color, then blow the screen clean. I would suggest a propane torch from Wal-Mart and a pair of pliers to do this. Then re assemble the muffler. I have included a link to the Ryobi Parts breakdown. You may have to put your RY30210 model number in the search box. The diagram you are looking for is the Engine Assembly. I hope this gets you back to running again. :)

How do you change the string feeder on a ryobi gas

If your machine is a "bump feed" there should be a knob on the bottom of the string feed.....this is a LEFT HAND thread, so turn it clock wise and it should pop free and your cartridge and replace it tightening the knob counterclockwise until it stops....that should do it !!!... ;-D

Smokey 2 cycle oil will cause the exhaust ports to carbon up and plug the spark arrestor.
Remove the muffler, use a pick to clean out the exhaust port on the engine, and the muffler inside opening, then clean the spark arrestor screen, to assure yourself you are correcting the problem start the machine up with the muffler off, it should run like a charm, if it goes back to running badly when you reattach the muffler it may be clogged on the inside.

How do i clean the spark arrestor on a ryobi ss30 trimmer?

Got a manual? They likely tell you there. If not:

Obtain and use the proper tools for removing the arrestor retention assembly/diverter and leaving the muffler in place right where it is at. Once the screen is in your hands? A blast of carb cleaner and a fine wire brush is all the attention it will need. Re-install, snug your retention screws/bolts and go play in the grass! :D

Fuel starvation - 'lean fuel' condition
Basic things to check:
1) spark plug
2) spark arrestor in muffler
3) fuel lines and tank filter
4) turn adjustment needles out (counterclockwise) 1/4 to 1/2 turn
*if all of the above are OK and/or do not improve performance then:
Remove Carburetor
5) replace gaskets/diaphragms
b) use a spray carb cleaner to clean jets, holes, and body of carb

Ryobi 790r trimmer has low power and stalls

Maybe a quick fix and maybe not
check your muffler the factory puts a spark arrestor screen that tends to plug after awhile
there is a little plate on the side muffler that needs to be removed to access the screen you may need a torx bit or allen wrench to remove
you may have to remove the back half of the plastic cover to access the screws
remove screen and clean with carb. cleaner or equivalent make sure you can see through it and reverse the procedure to put it back

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.
