Check to make sure the air filter and the fuel screen are clean, the screen is the little white plastic piece on the end of the hose in the tank. if it is still sputtering try cleaning the bell out on the carb. it is the little metal cylinder on the bottom of the carb where it holds the fuel until it evaporates into the engine if it gets clogged the engine will not run properly.

Starts but won't stay running


Turn off all your accesories and turn the key forward, but dont start it. You should hear the pump kick on for 2-3 seconds. Prime the system a few times then start it. This will narrow your diagnosis

Husqvarna weed eater starts , but blows alot of smoke & then stalls out


Rod, Carb. may need adjusted, try loosening gas cap and start to see if cap vent plugged, there is a in tank fuel filter that you could fish out and remove to see if it is plugged. If still not running remove muffler and clean spark arrester screen, if screen plugged the trimmer will do this.
Check the attached links,instruction and guides, Good luck

My weed eater (toro), won't let me pull the cord at all. This weed eater doesn't take oil I don't think.


All internal combustion engines use oil of some description. I take it this is a 2 cycle engine and you have not added oil to the gas. If this is the case the engine is locked up, and must be replaced. Sorry.

Troy built 27cc string trimmer Model TB21 EC. What is the gas oil mix ratio?


4 cycle engines do not run on mixed fuel. Run on straight fuel. They have a spot to put oil in just like a lawn mover, and should be changed regularly. @ stroke engines run on mixed fuel.

Troy bilt 4 cycle string trimmer wont stay running when given gas it starts fine but once you try to give it gas it dies


If this is an old unit, then the diaphragm is probably hardened.

Tests before hand would be:
1. Is the gas fresh and water free?
2. Is the spark-plug clean and snugly fastened?
3. Are you using the correct gas to oil mix ratio in your fuel?
4. yes...yes...yes...= bad diaphragm. Probably less than $5 for the part and a 1/2 hour to replace the part.

Toro powerlite snowblower sputters out after 10-15 minutes


I would change the spark plug and be sure to gap it as per your owner's manual. I would also clean or change the air filter. I would also use only high test gas and the oil recommended by the manufacturer. good luck.
