Customer Question

PP428S 28cc, weed eater, idle, no problem, throttle up, it will stall every time
JA: I'll do all I can to help. Tell me a bit more about what's going on so we can help you best.
Customer: The simple answer is when I go to power up to weed eat it will stall. I tried idle adjustment, doesn't change a thing. I put fresh fuel in, replaced the spark plug, and still no different.
JA: Is there anything else the Small Engine Technician should be aware of?
Customer: That's it

Hello Tom. My name is***** will be happy to assist you. Have you check the fuel filter inside your fuel tank? It could be partially clogged.

There is also an inlet screen inside your carburetor. If you have never replaced it before, it is very likely clogged as well.
