SST25 problems: new Fuel lines and Filters, cleaned carburetor

SST25 runs on choke

From: Donald S.

I am making a request for another reply for a SST25. I have changed fuel lines and filter. Cleaned carb and plug. It will run on choke a short time but stalls. Trimmer acts like its running out of gas. I see fuel in primer bulb. Is this more clear on my problem?

Hi Donald,
I’m not a mechanic, but I’ll try to help. The most common problem for trimmers that won’t stay running is a fuel line. Since you have changed it, check is it plugged correctly and does it suck the air causing trimmer to stop. One more thing that’s possible cause of problem: exhaust screen (spark arrestor precisely) may become clogged. You should also check are your new filters blocked and is the spark plug wet. Hope this will work for you!
