My spark plug was jumping Spark to the rubber so I pulled the rubber off and there's another wire in there what is that used for cos now I can't get spark on the spark plug properly
Hi where do I buy a new head for my RLT26cdsn grass cutter? I don't want to be caught again as inthe past where sales people tell you this 1 will fit yer right Thankyou.
Personally I recommend putting the thing in the bin. Search Bunnings Ryobi line trimmer accessories they have what you need.
This should be the one you need. Just make sure you use the yellow knob to tighten the head on completely (it has a "wrench" built into the inside")
Then once it is installed... line up the line with the arrows, and fish the line through the middle ... and wind the knob.
Having trouble with line will not feed and have to pull apart every couple of minutes to re-thread which way should line be coiled anti clockwise or clockwise?
Hi Tricky, Sorry for the delay in replying. Haven't checked my email for a while. One of the endearing features of the Ryobi line trimmer is that it uses the same spool for straight shaft and bent shaft trimmers. If you take the spool off to clean it and put it in upside down the line winds in not out when you bump the head. If you look closely you will see print on the spool saying something like "This side out straight shaft line trimmers" and the other side has "This side out bent shaft trimmers. Try flipping the spool and see if this helps. The other problem I have had when really working the trimmer hard is that the line can melt onto the spool. I don't know a fix for that problem. Good Luck. Phil
Ryobi line trimmer 25.4cc c/shaft RlT254FCDSN have tried new spark plug, new lot of petrol, cleaned filters still doesn't fire up only floods with fuel. Any suggestions. Second time used since purchasing. 07/02/2015
Hi Mike, Sorry for the delay in replying. Are you getting a spark? I ended up buying a new carby for mine on line, which cost about $30. It's working again, but it wasn't that easy to change. Could be oil built up in the cylinder if you haven't used it much. You may be able to rinse it out by putting clean petrol in the spark plug hole and rinsing it out. Otherwise I'd suggest getting someone to look at it.
Above Ryobi starts but once you apply trigger pressure just dies there is a very small rubber washer which has started to perish so it sucks in air trying to find someone who sells this still scratching my head any ideas?
My best advice after going through 3 Ryobi's 6 months (all under warranty) is take it back get a refund and buy a Weedeater (they are actually made by Husqvana)
