Weedeater Featherlite FL1500 idle speed adjustment

Hello Everyone,

Someone, please tell me the procedure of adjusting the idle speed on Weedeater Featherlite FL1500. Your suggestions will be highly appreciated.



Hi Martin, please consider the following steps for adjusting your Weedeater’s idle speed in order to let the Weedeater idle properly while cutting weeds and grass.

  • Firstly, place your Weedeater on a flat surface & start it while supporting its head off a ground. Press the choke trigger if required to let the Weedeater’s engine idle
  • Now, locate the speed correction screw located to the side & slightly behind an air filter. You have to turn the bolt ¼ turn with the help of screwdriver & release the choke trigger to check if it will idle freely.
  • Finally, turn the adjustment bolt to right to left when engine idles very fast.
