  1. I am sorry you are having a problem with the trimmer. If the fuel mixture in the trimmer is older than 5 weeks old, it should be drained. Then refill with fresh fuel mix. If this does not help I suspect there is a problem with the fuel system. I recommend checking in the fuel tank first. When you look in the tank, you should see a fuel line with a white filter attached to the end. Then inspect the fuel line. If it is hard and brittle, it has to be replaced. If the fuel line is fine, I suspect the carburetor is to blame. The carburetor will have to be cleaned or replaced. Before you remove the carburetor, make sure to note the fuel line and cable connections. This will save a lot of frustration later.

    Please let me know if you need further assistance.
