Weedeater Featherlite SST25 not getting oil


Someone, please help me to sort out the problem, which my one-year-old Weedeater Featherlite SST25 is having from last two days. Actually, the Weedeater eater is not getting oil/fuel into primer bulb when I pump it. Please suggest that why the bulb is not drawing oil/ fuel into it?



Hi Rob, first check the fuel line/fuel filter condition inside a fuel tank as it might be blocked. Apart from this, carburetor could also be choked because of debris particularly when the fuel lines have come off a filter in the tank. The fuel lines become weak & eventually break, at times causing this problem. You can see a clear mesh screen in the fuel pump side of the carb, which sometimes has to be cleaned to let right fuel flow over it. Moreover, sometimes the primer bulb will not push & pull the fuel properly when the check regulators inside the carb are faulty, dirty or stuck. Thus, check for all these.
