SOURCE: Husqvarna 323L Line Trimmer - Runs for about 5-10 seconds,

Check the fuel lines for cracks/breaks. If they are o.k., then:

Youwillneed to disassemble the carburetor and spray with carb.cleaner.Makesure the small screen is free of debris. (Should be able to seedaylightthrough it.)

Use a Den Tek Brush, (http://www.drugstore.com/products/prod.asp?pid=165357&catid=1152),to clean the small portals in carb. These portals can become blocked. Reassemble and start.

If the carb. parts are more than 4 years old, you may have to replace them.

If you need further assistance on:
1. Fuel line replacement or
2. Carburetor kit replacement

Just let me know.

SOURCE: how to fix pull cord on a bolens trimmer. i have

Remove the tube that holds the flex-drive shaft from the front of the motor cover.Remove the rear engine cover. Remove the throttle cable from the carburetor. Mark and unplug any wires for the on/off switch that go to the ignition coil (underneath front cover) if possible. Now if you have pulled the driveshaft tube out of the way, the clutch drum is up next. Inside it, screwed into the very end of the engine's crankshaft is a Torx #25 screw. Before you loosen it, you will have to lock up the engine. To do so, remove the spark plug. Pull on the starter until the piston is down, then insert a length of clean, soft rope into the engine. The engine will come up and compress the rope, thus locking it in place to allow clutch drum and clutch removal. Loosen the T-25 screw inside the drum.. You may be able to remove it with a long thin-blade screwdriver also.It probably won't come completely out...it is made this way. Next, remove the clutch. It is screwed onto a small threaded section of the crankshaft Removal is counterclockwise.. It will be pretty tight. To help, apply peneterating oil. Whack the ears of the clutch near the center with a dull flat-blade chisel and hammer unless there are bolts. then use wrench. It will turn counterclockwise for removal and there will probably be a removal direction arrow on it's face. After getting that off, remove the Torx screws holding the cover to the engine. The starter unit should be mounted inside as it mates with the top of the flywheel to start the motor. Remember to preload tension (5-7 turns) on the starter unit. Make sure the handle is installed. Jam the unit with a screwdriver or vise grips so you can insert and tie off the new rope. Then remove jam device and let recoil pull your new rope into place while holding the handle. Reassemble and you are done. Disassembly requires Torx head drivers

SOURCE: our trimmer won't start.

Hi j k johnson...

Remove your spark plug and check to be sure you are getting fire at the spark plug, if you are then:
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.

SOURCE: I have a troy built 4 cycle trimmer. I pull on

If you can sense that the shaft is turning, then the valves are sticking open.

I have a Bolens BL110 starts fine but dose'nt rev at all


Bolens trimmer sputters and stalls and only runs on half choke? Here's how to fix it.
Look on the top of the carburetor and you will see 2 black screws that are mostly round with a flat side recessed in the aluminum housing. They are flat on top and have no notches to insert a screwdriver. The trick is to turn these two screws 1/4 turn counterclockwise. I have a set of precision pliers and used the fine tipped needle nose to turn them.
The other option is to try and notch the top of them enough so you can use a flat blade screwdriver. You can grind down the surrounding aluminum with a Dremel tool so you can access them better.
You can see in the picture that I scratched across the top of the screws as a reference to see how far I was turning them.

The pull rope on my Bolens BL-160 string trimmer will not recoil. How can I fix it?


Recoil spring is broken or bent and is out of its slot. The kicker is most of the newer discount store models are being made where they are difficult to repair. This one has a starlock washer holding the assembly together. Unless you are VERY mechanically minded, you will need to by the case and recoil assembly together. It costs about 50% of the cost of the whole thing.
