Both engines have gunk in the carbeurator. Get an aerosol can of carbeurator cleaner. Spray four or five short blasts into the air cleaner and then start it. Do this a few times until the engines run well again. For a long term fix also get a bottle of a product called seafoam at the auto parts store and add one ounce per gallon of gas in the can you use to fill up these engines.

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 :

String trimmers are used to trim the grass in tight spots that a lawn mower can`t reach, like along a fence, under decks, or near delicate plants and shrubs. On the other hand, lawn edgers are used to clean up borders along sidewalks and driveways.
The most common problem with a string trimmer is that the unit runs out of string. The string may also be twisted or loose on the spool. The cutting head may be dirty or the head outlet guide may be bent. An electric trimmer`s power cord, switch, or motor may fail.
If your 2-stroke brushcutter fails to start, the simplest explanation is that there is not enough fuel: in this case you simply need to top it up. A 2-stroke brushcutter engine runs on fuel/oil mixture, which you can buy ready prepared, such as EFCO-Mix Alkilate alkylated mixture in a 5 L can.
A blocked or dirty fuel filter

If your engine is trying to run, or starts and quickly stops, you might want to do a quick air filter check. You need air for your initial spark – and if oxygen cannot move readily through the system you will have problems both starting and keeping your whipper snipper running.

A lawn edger is a tool that you can use to trim the grass on the very edge of a lawn or flowerbed that the lawnmower may not be able to reach. They work really well when figuring out how to edge a sidewalk or keep grass from growing over a walkway.
It Protects Landscaping From Grass Roots

Edging also serves a practical purpose. If left unchecked, grass will grow into landscape beds and over the edges of pavement. Edging creates a root barrier that stops grass from invading. And if you keep up with regular edging it will save you time when you`re trimming.

If your trimmer engine idles, but stalls on throttle, check the following parts: the gasket, primer bulb, fuel filter, air filter, fuel vent, fuel line, and carburetor. The repair and symptom guide will help you better identify the part needed to be replaced and how.
Just Like Spark plug fouling, too much oil in the gasoline, inferior oil, a dirty air filter and/or continued operation at less than full throttle will plug the screen with carbon deposits. This prevents exhaust gases from flowing out, which leads to power loss or not running at all.
So, an air filter might clog over time. Once blocked with dust and debris, it cannot supply the required amount of oxygen to your trimmer` engine resulting in power loss. Find the air filter, take out this component, clean and reassemble it. Replace the part if you cannot reuse it.

The most common problem with a strimmer not starting is that there`s a problem with the fuel mix. Double check that you`ve used 40 parts fresh unleaded petrol to 1 part 2-stroke oil (40:1). Check the petrol you`ve used isn`t stale.

Trimmer starts up then when I pull on the throttle I dies, even after it has warmed up
ANSWER : Try this it may just need adjustment.

Look
on the carb for 2 screws side by side. where those screws go into the
carb, it will be stamped with an “H” and “L”. Open the screw that is
next to the “H”, counterclockwise about 1/4 turn at a time with the
engine running, that should solve it.

Please remember to rate me if it helps.

It starts and runs for a bit but as soon as it hits thicker grass it dies
ANSWER : Joe Hi there. Sadly your trimmer will struggle on thick grass as it’s not made for it. You could try moving the trimmer like a scythe. This will aid it as your cutting bit by bit.

While running blower starts dying down in power going up and bown and cuts off
ANSWER : I wonder if it is starting to seize. Have you been using cheap ethanol gas. Or have you done research online for gas stations that sell real gas? If you don’t use real gas on a 2 stroke engine it will over heat and eventually burn the valve and cause distortion all over. It will eventually seize.http://pure-gas.org/

Strimmer starts and runs but cuts out when at full power
ANSWER : Easiest place to look first would be to see if one of the fuel hoses has split. May be hard to see but that would cause it to **** air instead of fuel. Eventually, the split or hole would become so big that it wouldn’t stay running at all, and probably not even start. If that doesn’t do it, make sure the fuel you have is still good and try running a little Seafoam with the fuel and see if it clears up. After that, I would be looking at carefully cleaning the carburetor which may require dis-assembly as well as new gaskets etc.

I have a Pouan Pro. I can start it but then when I give it gas it seems to have no power. It doesn’t die, just gets no power. Occasionally it revs.
ANSWER : It may well be running too rich because the air filter is blocked, remove the filter and just try the revs again free running, if ok, clean/replace the filter.
