Weedeater Featherlite RTE115C Idle too High


I want to share my problem here to get a quick help. When I start my Weedeater Featherlite, it idles up too high. I can see the air bubbles in fuel lines and primer bulb. Sometimes, the Weedeater does not take gas whenever I squeeze the choke. I would like to share that I have replaced the fuel lines and primer bulb recently. What should I do now?



Hi Tom, do not worry, as it is very common to have a small amount of the air in the Weedeater’s primer bulb. I would advise checking for the possible leaks of air in the Weedeater because it will make the Weedeater idle higher than average if Weedeater is pulling air from somewhere else. Do call a professional mechanic if the problem persists.
