Solving Weed Wacker Problems. Yes, it’s that easy-to-use, super noisy powered garden tools. It was fine when you used it last time, but now it just isn’t performing as it should. It isn’t starting. Check out the switch and make sure it’s actually at ON. Make sure that if it’s an electric unit, it’s properly plugged into an outlet that actually works. If it’s a gas unit, make sure there’s enough fuel in the tank. You should also ensure that the tank isn’t too much for the tank. Let it sit for a while if you’ve cranked it too much – after about 15 minutes, try again. Check the filter to ensure if isn’t clogged, but if it is, replace it. Make sure that if you see a kinked or split fuel line, you replace it and the same goes for a faulty spark plug. It is roughly idling. This happens more with gas-powered weed wackers. It can be caused by low compression, a carburetor that needs adjusting or worn crankshaft seals. You can tweak the carburetor screws while the weed wacker is idling, in order to adjust the carburetor. As for the crankshaft seal and compression problems, you should let an expert have a look. It isn’t cutting the grass. It’s very likely that the string can come out. You can buy a string replacement cartridge or you can restring the weed wacker yourself (it’ll cost you a little less to do that). It lacks power. Carbon buildup on the muffler outlet screen, a damaged spark plug, low compression, idling problems with the carburetor or a dirty air filter could have caused that. You can easily replace a spark plug and a filter; you may even be able to adjust the carburetor yourself, but you need a professional to fix the low compression, carbon build-up on the muffler outlet screen or idling problems for you.
