Weedeater Featherlite FL20 Carburetor Adjustment

Hi All,

My one-year-old Weedeater Featherlite FL20 is showing the signs of sputtering, stalling and power loss whenever I use it. What is the reason behind it? Is something serious? Share your views and suggestions, please.



Hi William,

All these signs indicate that the Weedeater’s carburetor needs adjustment. It is an important part of the Weedeater’s as air and fuel mixes here before it catches fire for ignition by a spark plug. When you notice that carb is not maintaining the correct air and fuel mixture to keep enough engine speed that the performance of your trimmer will surely suffer. Usually, the makers preset the carburetor during production; however, you are allowed to make minor adjustments to its idle speed for decreasing or increasing the speed of an engine.
