inspectyerbooty: great vid, i did a complete dissemble but had no carb adjust driver, would
not start, i found that the plastic end of some pens would fit tight on the
carb low high, i dremeled a slot in the plastic pen tip and one half turn
screws and voila... motor now runs, exact same weedwhacker as your video, i
did find the screw holding the needle valve rocker axle in place was rusted
almost to powder, something attacked it or was bad batch of screws from
factory... recall notice??? thanks for all your videos
Bernhard Hofmann: I really enjoy your videos. They're very clear and simple. For a
non-mechanic like me, you seem to have a magical touch with motors which is
great to watch.
Michael Freitag: seriously, took 30 seconds and worked like a champs immediately. Thanks
you saved me 100 plus bucks
viningsbee: Newbie at lawn care here. This video saved my butt. Thank you!
ambharbor: Thank you for the video. I have a Craftsman weed whacker that uses the
ZAMA C1U-W32 carb and I tried to adjust the "Low" setting but it won't
stay running after it's warmed up. Put back the setting to where it was
and now the engine won't run at all. This is with a new carb that I got
only 3 months ago. It ran fine the first couple of outings and then started
bogging down like the previous carb did, which was replaced a year ago! It
seems like it's running out of gas. Sometimes if I applied the choke it
will run but then when throttled, it bogs. Now nothing. Any ideas other
than to get a 4-stroke or electric? These 2-strokers are frustrating to
Martin Garcia: Worked like a charm! I have a Homelite Bandit and it worked the same
way... Can't thank you enough, keep up the good work!
Chet Rogers: Thanks you very much for the video. I did what you suggested and my
weedeater is working now. I didn't have a small vice grips, so I did use a
dremel and made a slot. I didn't know what I was gonna do to fix it. Thanks
Zack Howard: I'm having an issue and am not sure if I should break into the carburetor
or not. My primer bulb isn't drawing in fuel unless I loosen one of the
screws allowing air to get to it. I press it down and it either very slowly
pops back up, or stays slightly sucked down. I've pulled both the lines and
blown them out, so no blockages. Has compression and will run if I put fuel
in the carb. Any help would be great. THANKS!
Scott Acosta: What if the weed-eater doesn't have those 2 screws? I have a Hitachi
Skyler Fisher: Thanks for the vid :) it help me i didn't know what was wrong with my weed
eater this helped
classic287: Another great useful video. Your camera work is great. You talk clearly and
You're the best on youtube.
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.
Keith McKnight: Great video, i have a weed eater that bogs down just like the one in the
video. But when i adjust the carb it still bogs down.I have a new plug and
the plug is getting fire. It will idle but when not run at all. The spark
arrestor on the muffler is clean. Any other suggestions. I have a husqvarna
128 L D weed eater Thanks
electrolux lad: I NEED HELP asap my homelite will NOT start nothing works ive tried
everything possible nothing work i put new plug new carb the spark works
ive spent over 50 dollars trying to get it running im about done got tons
of compression but will not start
Malcolm Parsons: Thanks, great work, this is exactly the problem I had now all fixed! Thanks
again keep up the great vids.
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
DaBrute: Talk about luck. I have the same exact model and its doing the same thing.
I'm going out to try this now.
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
ImGonnaSpray&Pray: nothing to adjust carb low high with, any suggestions?
racerm50: Great video I have the same weed trimmer with the same problem. Now I am
going to try these adjustments
Mark Newman: Hi. I got a weed eater for free a couple weeks ago and cleaned the
carb(didn't use rebuild kit) and it seemed to run great. I used it for
about 2 hours and after that when I go to start it it idles fine and seems
to do OK. But when I hit the throttle it bogs and if I put it to full
throttle it nearly dies. Could these screws need to be adjusted? I just
don't see how they would if it ran fine before. Thanks
D Gib: Great vids! Could the fact that my clutch won't engage be that the engine
is not getting to high enough rpm? Not sure how high this 4 stoke TB475SS
normally runs as a friend gave it to me not running. went through carb and
it seems to run well now, but clutch won't engage and is not frozen/stuck.
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
cqeggegg: Nice video and thanks. My situation is l can't even find those two screws.
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 ?
Thank you in advance
Alonzo Barrow: Got the tool and it worked for both my weedeaters that would shutoff on
high gear.Thanks alot for the instructional vid :-)

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.
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.

thecooldude615: Cool video
William Henning: very helpful i'm up and running TY.
Ed Scruggs: Thank you! Up and running again.
Norman Hunt: Mine is an older model I guess. It only has an exposed "orange" screw.
Turning that didn't help.
Christopher Pinterich: Thats what I thought, I appreciate you taking the time to upload this
issue. Keep up the good work! =D
mebe2k: I had one of those featherlite POS weedeaters.. ran like that right out of
Drew Clausing: I looked on my echo SRM-210 and couldn't find any adjustment screws. I've
taken apart the Carb and the diaphragms look good and all the hoses and
bulb are good. Good gas too. Does the echo even have adjustment screws?
Mitch Schenkel: went to a small engine mechanic to get the weed eater fixed before i found
this video. wanted to charge me $110.00 to fix it without even looking at
it. so glad you posted this video. turned the screw a quarter turn and it
fired right up and kept running! thank you again!
metrofurs: I had the same problem on my Craftsman, 1/2 turn to the left on the left
adjustment and it's working perfect, Donyboy thanks for your helpful video
