possible cracked fuel line or cracked bulb.

Clean the spark arrester screen! It’s amazing how dirty they can get - I clean mine with a dremel and a wire type brush. Once the screen is cleaned and replaced, the blower will run great! I found this trick last year and it saved me a repair bill.

No "gear box" on a curved shaft trimmer. Please peruse the diagrams at following link.


You want to remove what?

Sounds like lack of fuel. Try backing the air fuel mixture screw back 2 turns and see if it helps. Once it starts, see if you can keep it running by spraying carb cleaner into the carb. If you can keep it running long enough, place the palm of your hand over the carb inlet to choke the carb causing a sudden suction in the carb. Some times this will dislodge foreign material and help it run.

the best way i have found it to take the plug out and clean it. take the carburetor off and clean it with carburetor cleaner and blow the fuel line and filter out with air, clean out the fuel tank. put it back together and it should run like new. if you are having that many problems sometimes it is best just to clean the whole system. be sure the fuel can is labeled and be sure no water gets in the can.

It is an assembly that is bolted on to the end of the machine, remove the assembly and replace it with a new one. DO NOT try to replace the rope only - the problem is in the assembly mechanical parts.
