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 clogged carburetor is most commonly caused by leaving fuel in the string trimmer for a long period of time. Over time, some of the ingredients in the fuel may evaporate, leaving behind a thicker, stickier substance. This sticky fuel can clog up the carburetor and cause the engine to stall.
The air filter or exhaust port may be blocked. The trimmer may need lubrication and cooling fins or air passages may be blocked. A cordless trimmer`s battery or charger may be faulty.
If your RYOBI Edger isn`t starting: For 18V or 36V Battery models: check the battery has charge by pressing the fuel gauge. For AC models: turn the power point switch off and check the cord is inserted correctly in the extension lead. Use a heavy-duty extension lead no longer than 25m for optimal performance.
The first thing to do is to ensure that the battery is fully charged. If after charging the battery you are still experiencing the problem, then it may indicate a fault with either the battery or charger. The defective item will need to be replaced.
The clutch engages the clutch pads to spin the trimmer head. If the clutch assembly is defective, the clutch will not disengage the clutch pads, and the trimmer head will continue to spin, even at low speeds. If the clutch is defective, replace it. (Note: some string trimmers do not have a clutch.
Clean the clipper to remove any hair clipping or grease accumulation. Place your new blades on the clipper and screw them loosely. Align your blades and hold them in place using your other hand. Gently, tighten the clipper`s screws simultaneously to maintain blade alignment.
First check that you have a fully charged battery – a fully charged battery maximises runtime and also power, and minimises the chance of your mower cutting out in use. The next thing to check for is the condition of your lawn – for best performance, it`s recommended to mow your lawn regularly and to mow dry grass.
The trimmer line is crossed on the spool: If the trimmer line becomes crossed on the spool while being loaded, this can cause it to refuse to come out during trimming. Be sure to load trimmer string onto the trimmer straight without crossing over the lines to avoid this problem while trimming.

My Ryobi CS30 Weed Eater has a problem. It starts OK and the shaft starts turning, but after about 30 seconds of use, the shaft stops spinning, rendering the whole thing useless. I’ve taken the head off and run the thing to attempt to locate the problem. The shaft stops spinning without the head as well, so my guess is it’s the shft. Please help.
ANSWER : May also be the clutch, in the drive section up by the motor. You will have to take it apart to inspect it

Weed easter just stopped running and will not start. Was doing great, has gas, plug loks ok–need help?
ANSWER : Weed EASTER? Plug LOKS? Need help spelling!
First off, if the gas/oil combo is aged, that can cause problems. Use fresh fuel. Second, Steven; check for Water in the fuel or dirt in the lines. You may have to disassemble the entire head and clean the parts. You may need a new Seal to prevent oil/gas leaks, so be prepared.
