Customer Question

I have 128LD Trimmer thats been running well since November 2009. Today it won't start. The fuel bulb doesn't appear to be filling with fuel. Could this be the reason for not starting or is there other culprits?

Welcome to JUST ANSWER small engines, let me try to help you !! fuel primer bulb has to prime the carburetor. If it pumps without any effort and no fuel being sucked. You have a fuel line split or broken. The primer pulls fuel through the carburetor which has the fuel line with the strainer on it. Problem can the line in the tank or at the carburetor.
