Sounds like you need a new spark plug and probably a new gas filter. To start the weed eater it is recommended to pump the primer bulb seven times and the choke full down. You can get the fuel filter out of the tank with a hooked wire. Good luck.

That is indeed the case, fuel is not getting to or through the carburetor. Check the fuel line, including the filter in the tank. Then check the carburetor, clean it if necessary, replace the diaphram in the carburetor. The diaphram is also the fuel pump of the carburetor. Be very careful with the small parts including the little spring in the lower end.

  • Alow the engine to run for longer on the start setting before you switch to run
  • Ensure air filter is clean. Foam elements can be washed with hot water and detergent. Paper elements can be cleaned with compressed air blown from the inside of the filter but ideally should be replaced.
  • Check fuel lines aren't kinked or blocked restricting fuel flow.
  • Ensure fuel filter isn't dirty. This is probably located at the end of the fuel line in the tank.
  • The fuel lines may have become airlocked.This can happen if the tank is run dry. If the trimmer has a primer bulb, alternatively press it several times and then try to pull start the engine with choke on. Repeat this several times. The primer bulb should feel spongy and fill with fuel.Once the engine kicks, switch to run.

Most likely it is the spark plug, but could be a dirty fuel system. I'd start with the spark plug then go from there. you can also use a good quality fuel injector cleaner in your gas to help keep all your small engine carbs clean. If the problem persists there is a fuel filter inside the gas tank that plugs onto the end of the fuel pick up line that could be clogged. Worst case a carb kit can be gotten for them for about $20 bucks. Hope this helps. Please vote yes, thank you.

Hi Jeffrey-
I found a youtube video regarding troubleshooting a generator with no spark.

Hope this helps.

I also found a link for the Ryobi Ryi 2300BT Owners Manual.

Without more information, the best guess is that the piston is probably seized in the cylinder, this will not fix itself by adding oil now. It likely needs a new piston and/or rings and/or cylinder or shortblock assembly. You can google your model number for sources of repair parts. Depends what you find when you disassemble it, if you can get the piston out you may be lucky to get by with a new set of rings and honing the cylinder.
But it will be a batch of work for a $200 blower. May be worth it if you can do it yourself and the parts arent too much. Certainly a shop couldn't do it for less than the replacement price of the whole blower.

Use long-nosed pliers to remove the washer from the shaft.

While applying steady upward pressure to the flywheel, firmly strike the end of the shaft with a rubber mallet until the flywheel breaks free. Several blows from the mallet may be necessary to free the flywheel from the engine assembly.
