SOURCE: will not start normally

Your carbeurator has crud in it from leaving gas in it over the winter.
You may be able to clean it using a carbeurator cleaner spray which you spray into the air intake after you remove the air filter, OR by using a gas additive such as seafoam which will clean the carb. as it runs. If you have any old gas in the tank of your weedwacker, discard it. Same goes for your portable gas tank. Gas deteriorates over the winter.

Sometimes simply removing the carb and placing it in a carb dip will clean it without tearing it apart, also check or replace the spark plug. Make sure you have compression, good spark, and that fuel is getting to the carb. If that doesnt work, email me and I'll find you a diagram. Jblee1975@yahoo.com

Hi bdtyler72...
Sounds like you still have dirt/debris in your caburetor jets,fuel passages or a diaphgram that is becoming non-flexible.
Check/Clean/Replace your Air Filter, a dirty air filter can make your engine run to rich with fuel.
Note: ALWAYS USE COMPRESSED AIR TO CLEAN YOUR JETS AND PASSAGES, VERY IMPORTANT.
Note:Before you disassemble the carburetor:
Mark each piece with a awl, or some kind of instrument that will make an alignment scratch before you disassemble the carburetor into separate pieces.
That way you will know which way it goes back together when you reassemble it.
Sometimes you can get by with priming the carburetor or by 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.
Be sure to check your fuel tank for water and dirt/debris, if there is water/debris then you need to clean your tank.
Check you fuel line condition after a while they will degrade and need replacment.
Check/Clean/Replace your fuel filter if you have one, normally they are located in the fuel tank of weedeaters.
When you remove your fuel lines from the carburetor be sure to make a drawing to how the lines are connected to the carburetor.
Normally the big line will be the line the fuel filter is connected to inside of the tank.The smaller of the two lines is the return to the fuel tank from the carburetor after it is pumped thru the carburetor by the primer bulb.
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 trimmer is over a couple of years 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.
The diaphgram may look good and flexible, but it can be deceiving and not act as a fuel pump as it should because it has become too hard and will cause hard starting,start and run and shut off, etc.
When you clean your carburetor, I recommend that you use a laquer thinner type cleaner to clean and dissolve the laquer build-up in the float and needle jet passages.
Be sure to remove all plastic and rubber parts before using the laquer thinner because it can dissolve the plastic parts and render them unuseable.
Be sure to use COMPRESSED AIR to blow out all the fuel and air passages.The higher air pressure is needed to blow some of the trash/debris from the fuel or 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.
Keep in mind that the float (if you have one) for the carburetor must be level when you go to reassemble the carburetor or follow the instructions you get with the carburetor kit, or you could also ask the parts man that you get your kit from.
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 original position before you started.
Note:
The little spring inside of the carburetor goes under the float arm.
That is where your fuel inlet needle/float valve is located...on the arm at the end.
Normally there is a small indetion in the carburetor base and a small protrusion on the underneath of the float arm where the spring will be in the right postion for installation.
The spring will set in the indention and you will install the float arm with the needle/float valve and float rod into position over top of the spring,you will push down until it is in position and then you can tighten the screw that holds the float arm assembly in position.
Once you have your carburetor properly cleaned and rebuilt that should solve your starting problem.

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.

ECHO 2000 WEED EATER I changed the fuel line,


You may need the carburetor adjusted or rebuilt. The other possible item is "bad gas". If the gas has been sitting around longer than 30 days, it may be time to mix up some fresh fuel mixture.

I have an echo mfg'd Echo GT2000 string trimmer with bent shaft. Gas not getting to spark plug. Could it be a bad Carb?


could be but lets try some other things first
On the carb. you have a primer bulb have you pushed that several times and is there gas in the bulb itself?
Are all of your fuel lines intact and not broken or brittle including the primer bulb?
Are you using fresh fuel mixture?
Be sure your stop and run switch is in the run position.
find your air filter and remove the filter itself
then you will be looking at the inlet side of the carb.opening and a orange choke shutter
Take a thimbles full of mixed fuel and pour directly into the carb opening with the choke off( turn trimmer on its side to do this)
now with everything (except for the filter) set to run try to start your trimmer 4 or 5 pulls
does it try to run? runs and shuts off? if so then you have carb. issues
which you can either replace or rebuild
sometimes if you do not want to tackle it yourself then it is less time consuming to replace it
but not cheaper.

hope this helps you some

Redmax weed wacker wont stay running


Have these unit been stored with fuel in them or sitting around for a long period of time? If so the carbs may need to be overhauled. Also check for a clogged fuel filter and vacuum test the fuel lines for cracks.
