Hold the trimmer head above the ground, press the trigger throttle and allow new line to automatically feed from the spool. Continue to hold the trigger throttle down until the line extends to the point where the blade on the trimmer guard trims it to length.
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.
Governor springs hold the throttle in the desired maximum speed.
A weedeater can spin around 12,000 rpm. So, assuming an 8″ weed eater string.

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?
The plug can be the problem but also the air mix as well get the best plug you can
Weed eater won’t run
Sounds like you may just have a dirty carburetor.Youwill need to disassemble the carburetor and spray with carb.cleaner.Make sure the small screen is free of debris. (Should be able to seedaylight through it.)Use a Den Tek Brush, (http://www.drugstore.com/products/prod.asp?pid=165357&catid=1152),to clean the small portals in carb.

STRING KEEPS BREAKING ON A TROY BILT WEED EATER TB539E
Take a look at the hole in the spool where the business end of the string comes through. There should be a smooth metal grommet or smooth short tube there. If the metal is missing, then the string is breaking because it rubs against plastic and heats up very quickly. Or the tube or grommet might have a rough or sharp spot. You might be able to polish it up with a Dremmel type of tool.
My stihl weed eater fs85 hard to start when hot
Try loosening the gas cap to relieve any pressure, then tightening it back up. Usually you will just need to barely unscrew it and then screw it back even before you pull the rope.
A lot gas leaking coming from gas tank hose goin to carbureiro.
Those fuel lines have a track record of disintegrating, take pieces of each hose to local repair shop or dealer and get new fuel line usually called tygon and is yellow in color. Look how the hose is set up before taking apart maybe take pictures. Good Luck…
Weed eater will not run in high speed but will idle
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
