Why won't the weed eater  engine start?

Several things would make an engine difficult to start:

1. If you have an on/off switch- make sure it is on.

2. Check the spark plug: -if the tip is wet, the
plug may be fouled and should be replaced -make sure it is gapped at .025.

3. If the air cleaner is dirty, clean it with soap and water.

4. Do you have a fresh fuel mixture; Weed Eater recommends fresh fuel each season and the use of a fuel stabilizer.

5. If you smell fuel after following the starting procedure, assume the engine is flooded. Set it aside for 10-15 minutes to allow the fuel to vaporize before starting over.
If after checking these items the unit will not start, there may be a more serious problem.
