weed eater gas sticking

Hi,

The "gas petal" on my weed eater is sticking. It either has no juice or too much. When i press it takes about 8 sec for it to rev up.

thanks,
Sarah

Hello Sarah!

Sounds to me like you either have a sticking throttle cable or a sticking throttle shaft. Lubrication with penetrating oil should fix either.
