What to do if the fuel mixture used is fine, but the gasoline grass trimmer still won’t start? The causes of failure may be due to excessive moisture in the spark plug channel. To make a diagnosis and fix the problem you need to do the following
- Unscrew the spark plug. Wipe it thoroughly and then dry it.
- Drain the excess fuel in the chamber through the appropriate spark plug hole.
- Clean the old plug, if it has soot on its surface. To cope with the task will allow the use of an ordinary nail file or file.
- When reinstalling the element set the gap of 1 mm. To check the parameter, it is enough to put any coin in the gap.
- Reassemble the functional unit.
- Try to start the trimmer for grass.
It is recommended to perform drying of the spark plug channel for at least half an hour. However, in no case should you resort to the burning of its elements. After all, heating of the spark plug can lead to its final damage. What to do if the function block has been serviced according to the above recommendations, but the grass trimmer does not start, there is a spark? In such a case, it is worth to treat the threaded connection with gasoline. The latter does not need to be heavily soaked in fuel. It should only be slightly moistened. Resort to such actions should be used to ensure ignition. After all, no matter how strong the spark did not give the spark plug, in a completely dry chamber simply will not ignite.

If even in this case, the grass trimmer does not start, it is worth evaluating the quality of contact between the high-voltage wire and the spark plug. If there is no spark (if there is a reliable connection between the above elements), most likely the problem is caused by a breakdown of the ignition unit. In this situation, you will need to seek the services of craftsmen who will perform the reinstallation of the node.
The gasoline grass trimmer stops when idling
If the engine speed is too low, the brushcutter engine frequently shuts down and will not idle on restart. The main causes of such failure include pollution or misadjustment of the carburetor, as well as clogging of the air filter.
If the optimal settings of the carburetor are violated, it is necessary to perform its cleaning and re-adjustment. You can cope with the clogging of the air filter of the grass trimmer by placing it for a few hours in a solution with an ordinary household detergent. If cleaning by yourself does not solve the blockage, it is better to buy a new filter element in accordance with the instruction manual.
After carrying out measures the user for a long time will not face the situation when the grass trimmer stalls at idle and functions only when gas is supplied.

Adjusting the carburetor when the engine stalls at revs
if the checkup shows that the fuel system, the muffler and the spark plug are fine, it means that you have to look for the damage in other places. Do not rush to disassemble the piston/cylinder group or change the carburettor first. Repair is recommended to begin with the adjustment of the carburetor. For this, all chainsaws have special adjusting screws. They are designed for adjusting the idle speed, as well as adjusting the fuel supply at low and high revs. A detailed description of how to adjust the carburetor of a chainsaw, described on the site.
Today we will consider the peculiarities of tuning the carburetor at maximum rpm. Make sure that the chainsaw does not develop full power, you can use the tachometer. If there is no device, you can check whether the engine does not develop the maximum speed by ear. We are interested in the screw on the carburettor. Which is designed to adjust the high revolutions.
