Ryobi weed eater starts dies

I have a ryobi c430 weedeater it runs fine as long as it is in a horizontal position as soon as I lower the head to start trimming it shuts off. It won't start again unless the tool is angled down towards the engine. Any thoughts Thanks Martin

Sounds like the fuel filter is off the fuel line in the tank, you probably need new fuel lines, if so, draw a diagram of the routing before removing the old ones. Have a good one. Geo

The unit is only 2 years old could it possibly need new fuel lines already Martin
