How to Identify and Fix Common Gardening Problems ?
We provide a variety of viewpoints on how to identify and fix common gardening problems. Our sources include academic articles, blog posts, and personal essays from experienced gardeners :
If the line is too thick or too thin it can continuously feed the line. Make sure you are using the correct line thickness rated for your machine. The spool houses the line for the trimmer and has the line wound around it. It is located inside the trimmer head.
Bump-feed string trimmers utilize a spring underneath the spool. When you tap or bump the head against the ground more line comes out. Automatic-feed string trimmers utilize an automatic-feeding system that pushes more line out whenever it gets too short.
When your trimmer starts and runs on choke, it could be because the check valve in the gas cap is clogged. Start the trimmer and gently unscrew the gas cap halfway off. Turn the choke off and assess. If the engine is still running, that means the gas cap may be the culprit.
