Use only FRESH gas. 2 cycle motors are sensitive and will not run on gas that will still power a lawn mower.

I fought with this for years before realizing how gas degrades over time - especially in plastic gas cans - as the important fuel molecules can evaporate right through the plastic.

Use a quality 2 cycle oil and mix to proper ratio for the saw.

Craftsman weed wacker will start and run


Are you sure you have the right fuel mixture? Many of these require 2 Cycle oil to be added to the gas. If fuel is right, you may have a vacuum leak at the carb (or crack in base where it mounts to the engine). My weedwacker needed to be run on half choke for about 10 min before it got hot enough to run with choke off.

I can't prime my carburator on my Echo GT200r weed wacker?


clean your fuel filter and then clean your carb and replace diaphram and needle and make sure hoses are good while you are at it, the methanol causes needle and diaphram to get stiff and gum up not letting fuel into carb when primed, replace your primer blb while at it

Have a toro 51940 model gas weed wacker that just won't start. What's the most common reasons? I replaced the spark plug already!


Check and clean the air filter. That's always been my problem. Wash/dry add a drop or two of oil and work it in.

Weed wacker


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. if that doesn't work have the carb repaired at a service center or replaced.
