kevin noneya: hey Dony didn't you make a video advocating purchasing a new carb
in this condition?? I don't get it?
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.
kaiok1777: I rebuilt an old Walbro WYK carb (from the 90's) - with help from one of
your videos. The one where you rebuild a carb for a small Chinese motorbike
or dirtbike I think. Replacing the stiff diaphragms, metering lever, small
circular fuel screen and o-rings. Now my husky 125L trimmer runs really
well. It was going to end up at the tip, but I am happy I persisted with
it. Before you could pull 'n pull 'n pull, 50+ times or more but it
wouldn't start. Now it takes only 5 or 6 attempts from cold to start.
However, It doesn't want to pickup mid-speed on its way to high rpms. The
throttle lever needs to be feathered to get past this sticking point. But
this particular carb does not have a high or low speed needle to adjust???
The only thing that I can see is an idle speed screw...what should I do?
B.T.W. I recently replaced the piston rings, piston pin retaining clips and
cleaned the cylinder, piston, muffler/muffler cover of all carbon buildup
(using a soda blaster). Also replaced the fuel lines, grommet, fuel filter
and all gaskets. Now she runs great, except for bogging down a bit
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
Herbert Cammock: Who sell that adjustment tool? I have the same problem with my weed wacker
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!
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
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
Michael Freitag: seriously, took 30 seconds and worked like a champs immediately. Thanks
you saved me 100 plus bucks
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
wee zer: buy a honda weedeater or a husqvarna with a honda engine and you'll never
have this problem again and you will never have to adjust any screws
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.
Jules Penney: THANK YOU! You saved me $50.00. Thought I would have to buy a new one.
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
Kenneth Downs: Worked like a charm. Thanks!
viningsbee: Newbie at lawn care here. This video saved my butt. Thank you!
Malcolm Parsons: Thanks, great work, this is exactly the problem I had now all fixed! Thanks
again keep up the great vids.
Skyler Fisher: Thanks for the vid :) it help me i didn't know what was wrong with my weed
eater this helped
carson hunter: worked very well same as model airplane carb thanks
Donald Smith: My Craftsman Weedwacker behaves exactly as in your demonstration. A new
carburetor and the kit that goes with in was professionally installed after
I failed to accomplish anything via the adjustments you suggested. The
magneto/flywheel gap was checked, the muffler/exhaust port is not clogged,
yet it still will not accelerate and stalls when you try. I have heard
that the flywheel key can get bent and throw the timing off, but I hesitate
to go that far unless you think that is just about the only thing left.
BTW, fuel is fine, lines are clear, I have left no stone unturned in trying
to get it working properly. Ideas?
DaBrute: Talk about luck. I have the same exact model and its doing the same thing.
I'm going out to try this now.
racerm50: Great video I have the same weed trimmer with the same problem. Now I am
going to try these adjustments
ImGonnaSpray&Pray: nothing to adjust carb low high with, any suggestions?
Alonzo Barrow: Got the tool and it worked for both my weedeaters that would shutoff on
high gear.Thanks alot for the instructional vid :-)
TheSoftgoat: Thanks great tip, I had the same model with the same problem. Could not
believe it needed a carb adjustment after only 1 year.
R Romack: THANK YOU
John Adams: My homelite has done this since I bought it! When I adjust the carb it
works for about 5 minutes then doesnt work (overheats) then I have to back
the screws out again...stupid homelite!
Rafael Madrid: that what I need to fix
Scott Nelson: Great video! You helped me out!! Used the wire splicer attached to a
screwdriver. Thank you!!
lugo small engines: Hey dony boy, I have this new Troy bilt trimmer from lowes, 2 stroke and it
burns gas quick,, no bogging good power and ideas on the fuel Mixing
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
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!
Wallace Weir: very informative and clearly explained video! thank you for sharing your
Justin Mattern: I was able to get about a 1/4 turn with thin needle nose pliers. I wasn't
sure I even moved it but I pulled it to let it idle to check and BAM,
fixed. I had literally thrown this away and elected to do some googling
and give it one more try after pulling it out of the dumpster. 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!
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?
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.
Peyton Morris: Hey dony my weed eater just like this leaks Oil do u know why?
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
Henryk Jarzabek: TKS very much it works!!!No more problems
thurm101: I can do that. I changed out my carb last year and made no adjustments. I
Dave GB: my sthil brushcutter takes too long to start and when it starts it almost
has no power how can that be?? can someone help me
Mr. & Mrs. Mitchell Foskey: thank you. mine is fixed....
Art Mendoza: great it fixed my problem...thanks a bunch.
Norman Hunt: Mine is an older model I guess. It only has an exposed "orange" screw.
Turning that didn't help.
Marc-André Beauchemin: I used a wire connector as a tool -- turned a 1/2 -- Fixed the problem --
Too simple. Saved me a trip (and around $50). Regards to the pro.
mebe2k: I had one of those featherlite POS weedeaters.. ran like that right out of
Christopher Pinterich: Thats what I thought, I appreciate you taking the time to upload this
issue. Keep up the good work! =D
craftsman1983: hello I adjusted my carb on a Husqvarna weed eater and it idles smoth and
ruves up fine, but after a few mintues of running it puffs white smoke out
the muffler or out the air box and stalls out. then is very hard to start
again. its a new weed eater only about 10hrs on it. compression is great,
carb is tight, muffler is new and clean, gas is mixed properly, spark plug
is new and is slighty dark, not wet or gray (len). if you know something I
don't or should try please post me back. thanks!
rebel56 rebel56: Thanks for the information regarding not having the special tool. I did as
you indicated and used the electrical terminal attachment and turned the
screw and it runs perfectly. Again Thanks!!!
Living Social: I got a groupon from Miami and almost got tricked. The description was way off for that the deal they were offering. I found groupon reviews that several people had the same issue. Luckily Groupon honor a refund, but my time was wasted.
