How To Easily Fix A Weedeater That Bogs Down




What do you think about this video?

Joshua Wilcox: How can you find the L and H screws/needles on a engine the may not even have them???

Raul Lozano: Thank you so much. I was thinking of buying a new carburetor or a new weed eater. Now I know what to do. Thanks again.

Mike Holden: Great video! I can definitely appreciate the information you have provided and the time you took to provide it. Thank you for identifying the screws and their function. Saving me spending always gets thumbs up man. :)

Jay Birdd: I'm a weedeater.

jay dee: My weed whacker has a similar carb. set up, it's been driving me nuts all summer. It's brand new so I never thought about adjusting the carb. Thanks for the great info.

Sky Pup: Mine sounded like this and it was the stupid damn spark arrestor. As I only cut grass with it (green grass), I just removed it and it made a world of difference!

Howard B: Thanks it worked lol

Checquette Kimball: thx bud your video was a big help and i didnt have the tool but i used a thick straw that was the right fit just had to press a lil bit but did the trick

Doug C: Thank you for this!

Babel Comm: Great video! Thank you!

Prince Of Darkness: 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.
