Weedeater Featherlite Stalls on Full Choke

My Weedeater Featherlite is not working properly as it is stalling badly on full choke. What should I do? The Weedeater Featherlite is just three years old. Should I buy a new one?



Hi Ben,

The choke on any Weedeater is specially designed for cold starting the engine. Well, if users leave a choke on, their Weedeater will not run properly when they try to start its engine. Excessive usage of the choke can easily overflow the engine. When it happens, users have to wait for several minutes in order to let the oil to drain out. The recommended way of starting the Weedeater’s engine is to set a choke properly to an on position & pull a starter cord for approximately six times. I hope that it will work for you.
