Husqavarna 125L E TEC weed eater won't stay running

Husqavarna Weed Eater two cycle engine. I cleaned out fuel tank replaced fuel and fuel filter, spark plug, replaced primer bulb, and rebuilt carburetor. It starts up runs for minute then shuts off. I think all it can be is the high and low settings but wanted a second opinion.

    Thanks very much for the tip. Solved my problem completely. There are 4 screws that hold down a plate that covers the screen. This is a winner for a 125L that will crank and idle but won't come up to speed.

I have one of these and had similar symptoms - the fuel line was cracked in several spots. I noticed a very minor gas leak when I inverted it. Replaced the line (there is a kit for this) and the fuel filter - runs fine now.

If it's the one that comes 'out' of the primer bulb it is the return line that goes in the fuel tank.

This could be a number of things. Clogged air filter/fuel filter/carburetor/fuel tank lid breather hole, cracked fuel line or primer bulb, or clogged spark arrestor in muffler. Here's some links that will help to change the bulb, fuel cap, fuel lines, rebuild carb, replace spark arrestor, and troubleshoot.

My TB70SS Bronco weed eater primer bulb will not return when pushed, thus will not run.


something is plugging the fuel flow from tank. the primer is actually as far a fuel flow goes is after the carb. fuel goes from tank to carb to primer and back to tank. could be fuel filter gummed up or plugged. take off line coming from tank filter to carb and see if it pushes in and pops back out. if so its your fuel filter.if it still does it something is plugged in carb. there are little flapper valves in primers to allow fuel in and push fuel out. could be one of those gummed shut. all depends on it has the primer blb on carb or seperate place as to how well you can see where the problem lies.

My Craftsman 17cc gas weed trimmer wouldn't start.


Hi There, Check the primer bulb for tare or pin holes. Replace it. Check and clean carb jet it maybe plugged with debree. Also check for spark which you didn't say. Replace with correct plug.
Note; Do not use strong cleaners on rubber seals (O rings and gaskets) They dry up and crack.
If needed use a dabble of grease on seals

Replacing fuel lines on ryobi weed eater,need


This is an ongoing issue for users, and rightfully so. Small diameter line out of fuel tank (has filter in-tank on end) connects to the side of the carburetor that has the fuel pump....that is the cover without the hole in it. Other larger diameter fuel line out of tank connects to the longer nipple on the external purge/primer bulb. The bulb "pulls" fresh fuel from the fuel tank to the carb and then out of the carb to itself, where it then pushes any air/old fuel back into the fuel tank. The remaining larger diameter fuel line in this setup goes from the metering chamber (has cover with writing on it and a vent-hole) side of the carburetor to the smaller nipple on the purge/primer bulb. Years ago on 2-stroke trimmers, primers were not even used,...you choked the carb with a slide lever and gravity let fuel enter the carb from above...a few pulls, a "pop"...slide it off of choke and away you went.
If the purge/primer bulb is on top of the carb...small line from carb body to small hole in tank with filter. Larger diameter line goes from the bulb on the fuel pump side of the carb to the larger hole in the fuel tank where the line is held in place with a nylon nipple connector that keeps the line from pulling out of the tank.

Took tank off weed eater and not sure how the lines go back on


The line with the fuel filter in the end comes out of the tank and it goes to the bottom fitting on the carburator. The other line comes out of the tank and goes to the bottom fitting on the primer bulb, and the third section goes from the top fitting on primer bulb to top fitting on carburator. Got it? lol Hope this helped and best wishes.
