How To Easily Fix A Weedeater That Bogs Down




What do you think about this video?

thurm101: I can do that. I changed out my carb last year and made no adjustments. I

AquaCarb: I thought you were going to say get fresh fuel or replace spark plug. Mine is a troy built And the shut off button won't shut off machine I have to close throttle with the blue switch on engine.

Christopher Pinterich: Thats what I thought, I appreciate you taking the time to upload this issue. Keep up the good work! =D

BensonsHandyAndy: Thank you for this vidoeo, huge help;)

CatFuzz71: I just replaced the carb on my Homelite because the gaskets to repair it weren't available. When I try to adjust the hi screw nothing changes. It bogs most of the time and I can't get anywhere near full throttle.

TheCheryl99: Thanks for the awesome video! I now have a few more things to check before giving up on my stalling weedeater. 

Cedric James: Good stuff very informative on all things pertaining to and around source matter.

Samuel Fisher: How do you know what type of sound you should hear for a proper working weed eater while adjust the weed eater.

RevlisGT: Is there any way to fix the choke lever on this model? Mine just keeps falling down. I have been thinking that maybe I'll just put a couple screws on the outside of the airbox to hold the lever rather than replace the carb but if you had any info that'd be great.

Clark Ivey: Can this also happen to back pack blowers, mine will bog down if you try to go full throttle but runs fine if your just under full throttle

IRONMAN000: Man i wish i saw your vids last year. Had this same problem with the same wacker, it pissed me off so bad i binned it. Gonna check your vids first from now on!! Lol. Thanx a million

flash341000: How did you get the tool I need one but the dealer won't sell me one Thanks Dony.

john doe: had the same problem on my chnsaw and cleaned carb and checked one gasket I thought was leaking and barely moved needle and seat tension and now it is spitting gas.went from not enough to way too much.

Bob H: Nice video as always, but I disagree with your approach. I've had good luck restoring power on two strokes by simply cleaning the carb and replacing the spark plug. I find that adjustments can mask the core problem. These small engines have little or no air filtration so they collect dirt. I applaud your advice 90% of the time - you hit the mark especially about using fresh fuel !! Thanks for the videos!, Bob

panther2552: thanks so much. I replaced the fuel lines. fixed the gas filter, which had fallen off in the tank and no go. caught this just 5 minutes ago and now my weed eater is working fine. thanks a ton :)

jerichokid903x: I have the gti 15t.. does this model have these same adjustments? 

43128lucky4: no muffler screen cleaning suggestions?

Ron Bishop: Hey I tried that. Changing the carb mixture on my weedeater using electrical connections didn't work. The screws are to smooth. Grinding a slot using a Dremel did. 1/2 turn out on the low speed mixture screw - fixed! Thank you.

Jordan Berghaus: I never thought of cutting slots in those screws to adjust them with a flat screwdriver, which is odd since I've cut slots in odd screws for other applications.

Jason Reid: i have a leaf blower that has fresh gas new hose from fuel filter to carb still wont start but getting gas into carb might need a carb kit but it runs by a starting fluid what do you think? whats wrong with it thanks 

MrBubbahunt9: my wife's little tiller was acting like this and i took my drimel and cut a groove in the screws and a half turn each out and it runs better than new..thanks donyboy73..

Braeden Randell: do you even mix your gas?

Carlos E Constanza: one question ? How do you replace the primer bulb if there is no screws to remove it ? model sst25cE. Thank you in advance

Fabian Kalili: Thanks for this video! It came in just in time to make my adjustment on my weed eater rig. This was exactly what I needed. Thanks again!

Pollockdinner: Spent a hour filing down a pair of needle nose pliers to turn those damm adjusters.

gustavo ruvalcaba: Yo I need major help mine don't pump up the gas when I push the rubber button like the gas goes up a little bit in the gas line but then goes back down... please help have been trying to work for hours

Mr. Doda Cha-Cha: Awesome! Worked like a charm. Thanks!

Vince Ski: donyboy fixed all my machines with your videos fixed my snowblower for about a $100. repair shop told me thay take it off my hands!! changed carb and drive belts, Lol Now Iam off to fix my weedeater thanks Again Vince from ny (albany)

rayford52: on my own stuff, that little screen is one of the first things to go,, but customers seem to think it has to be there and I guess if you are California it is the law..

donyboy73: yes thanks, discovered it

SuperchargedMustang5: I habe the same problem with my blower. Thank you!

acdcfanforever3: Hey Dony, what does it mean when a homelite trimmer runs when I have the gas on fully on half choke but, once its set on run, it shuts down. its my neighbors and im trying to help them. Any thoughts?

B Ferr: Thx it really helped!

newcoyote: At first I thought you where going to suggest cleaning the spark arrester. I'm having trouble with two FS110 machines. Not the spark arrester and not the carb because I put new carbs on and the same problem. It will have no power but after running awhile (presumably due to heating up) will run fine. Ideas?

donyboy73: no needle seat in kit, make sure gas cap or tank is venting,

myopicvision: Hi, I have the same problem. changed the fuel lines and gas tank with new kit. Replaced bulb, gaskets and diaphragm, cleaned it too. Lightened up the gas to see if it would help. No dice. Did the screw thing. Only has one screw, it's a Weed Eater FL25 . I don't know what the hole is where the fast screw is supposed to be? Got it to idle for 2 mins with screw almost the way closed on 3/4 choked with couple of throttle jerks. Only seems to run with it tilted back. Still floods out. Help ??

TheGMlover1: We're do u buy that tool at and for how much?

mayvaryresult13: Got a ECHO HC-1500 HOW TO GET IT GOING? LIKE CHECKING FOR PROBLEMS, HOW TO USE IT? THANKS

Steed Andersen: I do the same but now I use a dremel with a cut off wheel because it's faster.

James Breindel: Why does my weed eater xt 260 leak oil

knightrider1545: Do you run a string trimmer at full throttle when cutting?

Angelo Benites: Donny back your videos you included a link on a website to purchase lawn equipment parts at affordable price can you please give me the website address cause l forgot it, reason is im paying way to much at present for gaskets n parts at the local place ... thanks....Angelo in Houston...

WV Machinist: Anytime a 2-stroke runs just by turning it a certain way usually points to a air leak of some sort ... caused by loose screws, bad gasket, crank seals, etc.

mantis707: You are the man...wish I could buy you a beer

DA CHAN MAN: dony... ur a mind reader!! i have the same weed wacker and it was always this problem. i was going to ask you but i kept forgetting. but until this day you saved my ass LOL!!!! Keep up the good work man!!

donyboy73: people out there are struggling too no matter their profession. Youtube is global so the chances if it hurting your business are very slim and besides people need to buy parts too. Television is full of diy programs

Mark Vaughn: Neighbors shindiwa doesnt want to run with trigger pulled all to max throttle except on its side

Buckswoodshop .: I will give it a try!

donyboy73: lol

donyboy73: check for spark
