Shawn Dubay: try switching the fuel lines. might not be picking up fuel from the right line. You can get a diagram for running new fuel lines from tank, primer and carb. worth a try. Oh and make sure the fuel filter didn't pop off the pick up line. If it did the line will close off fuel under the vacuum of the engine running. If that doesn't work give me a call. I have a small engine shop. direct line is (859) 206-6439.
Nichola Cundiff: The carburettor might be on backwards check the hoses
thechugdude: Got any gas in it?
Gordon Noggie: the dood ran it woithout a filter for god knows how long.. that engine possibly toast
Skyler1640: If you're restrainer in there broke off in the gas tank
Matt Seymour: I think this is a sign of blocked carb jets, usually starts then dies, or could be a faulty carb, happened with my hedgetrimmer, had to have a new carb
Matt Ostrowski: hey take out the spark aresstor and clean it problem solved DONT BUY A NEW CARB WASTE OF MONEY
Fred Flintstone: My trimmer is having the same problems.It will only run smooth and full out when the choke is in the half way position.Not that there is an actual half way position. MORON! Which leads me to believe there is an air leak,a fuel vacuum leak,or the fuel is full of crap,like your mouth. You freakin' crap bird.
kytrails: Only to find that it still does exactly same thing
kytrails: Worked all day today cleaning carb
kytrails: Where was leak, I have almost exactly the same trimmer with the same problem
Bry4n104: it was a fuel vacuum problem. your the only perso on youtube with as many weed whackers as me. and for all the views out there join the 20 plus trimmer club!
Randy robinson: ya i had same problem, it was the lil screen in carb behind primer
Wes Keese: check for cracks in gas line or filter in tank or small screen under primer ball remove and put primer ball back on
hamtalker2007: turn off the choke lol
dcplace2007: This kid is a frigging idiot. No shyt it will stop running--you left the choke on the entire time! No telling what else this idiot is doing so this machine won't run. The lever in the up position is in the run position. People like this unfortunately breed.
marshelway007: So, did anyone else notice the choke was left on the entire time on both starts? You flooded the thing out my friend. I just bought this very model trimmer at a yard sale for $25 which is what brought me here lol SUCKER! Put a new plug in it, new fuel cap(guy had a pill bottle cap on it WTF?!), and replaced the old fuel in it. Runs like a champ. I repaired one of these last year for a customer also and it ended up being the spark arrestor (easy to tell, they double in compression).
th19940305: yea, new carb, its onlyy like $25 on partstree
Barry Brilliant: I am having the same problem. Did you solve it?
stratmister: I can't help, but my Husqy chainsaw is doing the same thing at the moment.
