A lot of these little carbs are kinda pickey... Did you put a kit in it with the gaskets & diaghragms?? If not,,,I think you should as they get stiff over time & not pump fuel (especially with todays fuels). Make sure the engine is well sealed & the cylinder is tight to the crankcase & all the other parts are tight... Make sure there are no holes or soft spots in the fuel lines.. If you take the carb off & find out what kind it is, the carb manufacturers have excellent manuals on there websites... Roger

Weed Eater Won't Stay On

Each time I start my Weed Eater is starts, runs for a 30 seconds with smoke coming out, and stops. Starts again does the same thing, and after about 3 times, it won't start again. Any ideas???

When you hit the no start, hold the throttle wide open with the choke off and try to start it. It may take a number of pulls. If it starts before your arm tires out, it's likely flooding that's behind your problem.

A diaphragm kit may take care of it.
