Babel Comm: Great video! Thank you!
Da Horror: My craftsman 17" 25cc would only run on half choke. Now it runs like it should. Thank you.
not2high2fly: If your in a pinch and don't have the time to order/ go to the store to buy the tool you can try what I did. I used an old Bic pen that was out of ink, I pulled out the point and ink tube and filed the sides near the tip down a little to fit. Then heated the tip with my Bic lighter for a second or two to soften it a bit, pushed it on let it cool a second and turned the screw. I don't know if I just got lucky but if your stuck it's worth a try
Flash Light: Thank you so much, your video made me feel good and gave me confidence about trying it myself, instead of a hefty bill at the repair shop.
Impossible Pie: I have sort of the same issue but I never touch my throttle switch, I get it started and it runs for a few seconds or a minute or two then it shuts off, this happens a few more times when trying to get it started and after that my weed eater just would turn on probably because it's over heated or flooded, I will give your tips a chance, great video. I do have one question, what would cause this to begin with, why do you have to adjust it over time, is it just because of wear and tear and use of it over time?
Sandy Toomer: Did the trick. Had to use needle nose pliers method. Also I've heard you can use a butt splice (to connect electrical wires)that will fit over the adjuster pin. The pin turns very easy. Turn the left one out CC 1/2 turn and runs like a champ now. (Poulan Pro Weedeater System).
GOOCH: Had no carburetor adjusting tool and needle nose pliers wouldn't fit. I tried to cut a slot in the screw head for a flat-head screwdriver, but I don't have the right saw. I ended up finding a finely serrated steak knife and it did the job perfectly. Just 1/2 a turn counter-clockwise on the left screw and it finally doesn't stall out every time I throttle. Runs better than ever now, thanks!
William Donnelly: Thank you for making the problem so easy to fix, my strimmer is giving me the same problem now thanks to you I know how to correct it, once again thank you so much, will also look for the adjustment tool on ebay.
rallyguy132321: great video. thank you.
M Jones: Thanks Donyboy73. Your videos helped. I have an Echo SRM 3110, but, the concepts are all the same. I tried to clean out the spark arrestor, but, it was mostly clean to begin with. I had let mine sit with gas in it. I primed the carb with Mechanic in a Bottle, and let it sit for a few days. I also had to replace all the fuel lines and clean out the gas tank. I got it running, but, it still wouldn't rev all the way. I finally just took off the carb. It was mostly clean, but, I used Seafoam to wipe down the diaphragm in the bulb assembly, and, both sides of the intake gasket. They were minimally dirty in my opinion, but, it was enough to cause the problem. I reassembled, and ran like it was new.
coondogtheman1234: I'm having this issue with my craftsman weedwacker. it starts ok and will run fine on just the throttle lock which engages when you pull the cord and disengaged when you press the throttle. if you press the throttle it bogs down then dies unless you let off on the throttle. I'm not sure what to do what to adjust maybe the carburetor. please help thanks.
MrHarley2384: mine won't stay running unless it's on half choke th minute u flip it to run it die when you pull throttle
imlon2: Well, it was running rough, but at least it was running.. I messed with the High, and Low and now I cannot get it to do anything at all.. Is there a reset spot? I was told both (High and Low) all the way clockwise till its tight and then turn the Low side counter-clockwise full turn and High side 1 and half turns. Which I have tried still nothing, but a blister..
I have good gas.. I have cleaned the screen in the carburetor, and I have what looks like good spark from the plug..
Any help at all would be very helpful.
Alfredo Rodriguez: I have a weed eater just like that. But after i replace the primer bulb starts but dies after a few second. I take it on the back of my truck for like 4 hours, now i try it again and now doest start what can be?
blosom2315: i'm working on an echo srm 230, it's doing this exact same thing but I don't see any adjustment screws on this model. Should I just replace the carb? I've replaced the fuel filter, spark plug and removed the spark arrestor, and checked the air filter.
Diozark: hat are the factory settings , I messed with it after it ran for less than a half hour, ate up the string too fast,
Home Helpers and Direct Link of Northeast Arkansas: Just want to say how your video saved me a lot of headache. I kept searching online on how to keep my P1500 from bogging down every time I put it on the "Run" setting and all I got from it was that I would be better off just trashing the trimmer. It took me about 5 minutes after I saw your video although I did have to adjust it with needle nose pliers. As soon as I got it running smoothly I saw your other video on the tool product number and purchased it on Ebay for $10 in case I need to do more adjusting in the future. Thanks again!!!
Greggory Haley: I have a murray weed eater with the fixed head on it works fine. All other brush heads work to. But when I put pivotrim head on it like bogs down when weed eating how to fix this problem thanks.
Bigband Lou: I have the exact same Weed Wacker model and broke the yellow plastic throttle trigger off.Where can I order a new trigger?
chipmafia: And I pressed the throttle...and for the first time ever, my brand new weedeater will actually throttle up and make that sound we all love.
Thanks for this video.
