I have replaced the carb diaphram but it is still difficult to get the engine to run. Wheh it does run it inviarably comes to a sudden stop.

Hello. Thank you for choosing Just Answer. I will be happy to assist you. With most trimmers, you will need a special tool to make any adjustments to your carburetor. How old is your trimmer? Did our problem occur suddenly, or has it gotten progressively worse over time?

This problem started the year after I bought the machine. I have not used it much because it was problematic.
