    sounds like the engine is seized up as happened to mine when someone put 4 stroke instead of 2 stroke oil in it!
    Needs a new cyliner and piston if thats the case
    Trying to find spare parts for mine but it will probably be cheaper to buy a new one!

SOURCE: Ryobi string trimmer 32.1 what do mix gas and oil or just gas?

Ryobi trimmers I have had use a 32:1 oil mix. Just pick up a little bottle of Ryobi 2-cycle oil and read it to see that it will give a 32:1 mix in a gallon of gas. Pour it into a gallon of gas, and maybe a little fuel stabilizer too, shake it up and you should be good for the season.

SOURCE: ryobi 30cc trimmer setting the timing belt

I set the crank pulley with the slot in the mag (shiny) section pointing up toward the camshaft (appeared to be top-dead-center looking thru SP hole). Set the deep hole in the cam pulley down to align with the crank slot. Slipped on the belt and surprise-surprise it fired right off. May need a bump one tooth either way, but too late to run it much tonight.

SOURCE: Ryobi string trimmer RY34420 has a non retracting

The starter assembly is between the motor and boom so you have to remove the boom from the motor housing. Usually one nut & bolt at the nose of the starter housing. There may be another lock bolt. You shouldn't have to remove the throttle cable and leads but it depends on how tight the factory installed them. Remove the starter housing. If you're real lucky all you have to do is pull some starter rope up past the pulley and wind the pulley in the direction the rope pulls back into the housing. You have to pull the rope around the pulley as you wind it. If the spring catches and builds tension you're good, wind it four or five times or enough to fully pull the rope back in. If the spring doesn't catch or releases every two or three turns it has to be replaced. You may have to replace the spring and container (PN638033001) and/or the easy start assembly (PN310022001).

Hi waynedavis50...
Yes a 10% Ethanol fuel can have some adverse effects on certain carburetor parts.
It can cause your "0" rings to grow and close off vital fuel passages and also cause them to start disolving and can plug passages.
You may need to rebuild your carburetor, try what I suggest below.

Check your fuel filter if you have one, normally they are located in the fuel tank.
Also make sure you are using fresh fuel...and oil mix if your using a two cycle mower or weedeater with the oil to the right mixture and not too much oil as it can cause hard starting.
If the mower/weedeater is over a year old, then I recommend that you buy and install a new carburetor repair kit,because the diaphragm will get hard and that will cause it to be hard to crank.
Sounds like you will need to clean the carburetor or replace your carburetor internal rubber parts like the diaphgram and O rings.
Be sure to use compressed air to blow out all the fuel and air passages.
Be careful when blowing out the passages, because there are sometimes small rubber type seats in the bottom of some of the passages.
Sometimes you can get by with priming the carburetor or using starting fluid and letting it run a few times like that and it will flush the gunk out of the jets,but most of the time you will need to rebuild the carburetor.
Keep in mind that the float for the carburetor must be level when you go to reassemble the carburetor or follow the instrucitons you get with the carburetor kit.
When you clean your carburetor and remove the jet screws, you will first need to lightly seat the jet screws.
But before you lightly seat the jet screws count the number of turns it takes to seat the jet screws from their original position.
Be sure to mark the turns down on a piece of paper.
That way when you put the jets back in, you know to lightly seat them first and then turn them back out to their orginal position before you started.
This is a FREE answer,Please rate me

Fuel mixture ratio for Ryobi SS300 weed eater


Are you sure about the model number? I see several 30CC engine string trimmers by Ryobi. Two are the Ryobi RY30040B (SS30) and a RY30544 (SS30).

For both of these models, mix a high quality 2-cycle engine oil at 2.6 oz. per gallon of gasoline to pour into the gas tank. This ratio is used in several other Ryobi string trimmer models. Many Ryobi product manuals are available here: https://www.ryobitools.com/power-tools/support/manuals . Most Ryobi gas powered and 40V battery-powered tools will have a model number that starts with RY. The 18 V battery powered models often start with a P.

I hope this helps. If you add a comment with the actual model number, I may be able to provide more information.

I have a Ryobi RPT3000 trimmer. Firstly how do I top up engine oil? And then how do I restring it?


The engine on that trimmer will be a 2 stroke 30cc engine not a 4 stroke.
"Two Stroke Oil" is added to the fuel for a 2 stroke fuel mix in accordance with the proportions specified by Ryobi for that engine. The required petrol/oil mix may be printed on the top of the fuel cap. No other oil is used in a 2 stroke engine.

There are a number of videos on Youtube people have uploaded which will show you how to replace the pull cord on a trimmer.

The pull cord on my Ryobi 30cc trimmer broke. Is this true, that there is no way to access case to replace the pull cord? This has been my difficulty! There seems to be no way to reach clutch springs,...


If you have the same kind of clutch as my cs30 week wacker, then there is a screw at the end of the shaft that the clutch sits on. The screw is down inside and requires a star shaped screw driver to turn. When I tried to turn it, the engine kept turning. I had to open the back part of the engine in order to put a screw driver in it to stop it from turning.
