Why is my weed eater not pumping gas?
Cleaning the carburetor will usually cure this problem. To clean the carburetor it has to be removed from the engine. Just be sure to note the fuel line configuration before removing them. Once it is removed, disassemble the carburetor and inspect the diaphragm and the plastic flapper.
What causes a weed eater not to stay running?
The Final Word Remember: If your weed trimmer starts but won’t keep running that’s usually a sign of either a poor fuel/air mix or an easy-to-replace filter having gotten clogged, all of which are easy fixes to perform at home.
Why does my Husqvarna weed eater keep stalling?
A clogged fuel filter is most commonly caused by leaving fuel in the string trimmer for a long period of time. Over time, some of the ingredients in the fuel may evaporate, leaving behind a thicker, stickier substance. This sticky fuel can clog up the fuel filter and cause the engine to stall.
Why does my weed eater only run on half choke?
When your trimmer starts and runs on choke, it could be because the check valve in the gas cap is clogged. Start the trimmer and gently unscrew the gas cap halfway off. Turn the choke off and assess. If the engine is still running, that means the gas cap may be the culprit.
What should you soak a carb in?
Soak and scrub components. Submerge the carburetor float and other components in a large container with your Simple Green Pro HD solution, and soak thoroughly for 10 minutes. Use a brass brush to scrub all metal components, and a stiff nylon brush to scrub plastic pieces. Make sure the tiny vents get cleaned.
Why does my whipper snipper keeps stalling?
A clogged fuel filter is most commonly caused by leaving fuel in the string trimmer for a long period of time. This sticky fuel can clog up the fuel filter and cause the engine to stall. If old fuel was left in the string trimmer, drain the old fuel from the fuel tank and replace the fuel filter.
