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 :

A jerry can is a container designed to hold gasoline. Since weed wackers have small gas tanks, a 1 US gal (3.8 L) can should be plenty.
The model number can be found on the side of the trimmer or on the decal describing how to start the trimmer. Trimmers involved carry the following numbers: Weed Eater model numbers-1400, 1400T, 1500, 1600, 1600T, 1700, 1700/Kit, 1700A, 1720, 1740, and 2215.
Gas Station

A gas station`s fuel storage tank ranges from around 12,000 gallons to 24,000 gallons of each 87 and 91 octane per station, not per pump.

Garden Tool Expert says a medium-sized riding mower can typically hold up to 2 gallons of gasoline, while larger models, like lawn tractors, have gas tanks that can hold up to 4 gallons.
Most serial numbers are stamped in the motor housing or crankcase to the left or right of the muffler looking down from the top on a flat surface. They will in most cases be 9 digits long and begin with the number 1, 2 or 5.
Every STIHL chainsaw model name starts with MS, MSA, or MSE. The common part, MS, stands for Motorsäge which is German for chainsaw. MSA indicates that it`s a battery chainsaw and MSE tells us that it`s an electric model.
Pull the spool out and unravel the old wire, but note how the wire was attached to the spool. Cut off 20–25 feet (6.1–7.6 m) of replacement string and attach it to the spool the same way the old string was attached. Reinstall the spool and put the cap back on to finish restringing your weed whacker.
There are two methods to reset a STIHL machine with M-Tronic. Method 1 is for machines with M-Tronic 2.0 or lower, and Method 2 for Machines with M-Tronic 2.1 or higher. It`s easy to tell which version you have by looking at the CE label. Machines with M-Tronic 2.1 or higher are shown on the label highlighted here.
MS= Motosäge = Chainsaw. FS= Freischneider = Line Trimmer. BG= Blasgerät = Handheld Blower.

Weed eater will not run in high speed but will idle
ANSWER : Lack of fuel is my first thought. Check to be sure the trigger control is working at the carb. From there I would suspect plugged fuel line or plugged carb, (most likely contaminated fuel) either way I would suggest someone that knows about these. Hope this helps

Start but will not keep running – Poulan/Weed Eater No. Te475 952711797 17" Le Gas Trimmer/Edger
ANSWER : Hi rt2714…

Sounds like you have dirt/debris in your carburetor jets,fuel passages or a diaphgram that is becoming non-flexible.Be sure to check your fuel tank for water and dirt/debris, if there is water/debris then you need to clean your tank.Also check you fuel lines condition after a while they will degrade and need replacment.If you do replace your fuel lines be sure to draw on a piece of paper the routing of the fuel lines for later attachment to the correct connection.
Make sure you are getting spark at the spark plug, to do this:Remove your spark plug and check to be sure you are getting fire at the spark plug.You do this by grounding the plug on the head of the engine and pulling the crank rope, if you are getting spark then:Check/Clean/Replace your fuel filter if you have one, normally they are located in the fuel tank of weedeaters.Also make sure you are using fresh fuel…and oil mix if your using a two cycle mower or weedeater with the oil to the right mixture and not too much oil as it can cause hard starting.If the mower/weedeater is over a couple of years old, then I recommend that you buy and install a new carburetor repair kit,because the diaphragm will get hard and that will cause it to be hard to crank.Sounds like you will need to clean the carburetor or replace your carburetor internal rubber parts like the diaphgram and O rings.I recommend that you use a laquer thinner type cleaner to clean and dissolve the laquer build-up in the float and needle jet passages.Be sure to remove all plastic and rubber parts before using the laquer thinner because it can dissolve the plastic parts and render them unuseable.Be sure to use compressed air to blow out all the fuel and air passages.Be careful when blowing out the passages, because there are sometimes small rubber type seats in the bottom of some of the passages.Sometimes you can get by with priming the carburetor or using starting fluid and letting it run a few times like that and it will flush the gunk out of the jets,but most of the time you will need to rebuild the carburetor.Keep in mind that the float (if you have one) for the carburetor must be level when you go to reassemble the carburetor or follow the instructions you get with the carburetor kit.When you clean your carburetor and remove the jet screws, you will first need to lightly seat the jet screws.But before you lightly seat the jet screws count the number of turns it takes to seat the jet screws from their original position.Be sure to mark the turns down on a piece of paper.That way when you put the jets back in, you know to lightly seat them first and then turn them back out to their orginal position before you started.Once you have your carburetor rebuilt that should solve your problem.

My weed eater hedge trimmer runs for about 10 minutes and cuts off. It seems as though it is flooded, because it won’t start again until some time later. But it continues with the same pattern. I purchased a can of premixed gas/oil to make sure it was my mixture, to no avail. I have not replaced the spark plug yet, but I don’t think that has anything to do with it. Do you have any suggestions?
ANSWER : The plug can be the problem but also the air mix as well get the best plug you can
