Keep your Weed Eater Serviced and Raise the Value of your Franklin TN home when it is time to Sell

Increasing the curb appeal of your Franklin home does increase the marketable value. A well manicured lawn is essential to curb appeal. 

Are you having trouble starting your Ryobi CS30 weed-eater or keeping it running smoothly so that you can keep your yard neatly manicured in Franklin TN?  If so, you are not alone.  Small engines like on your weed-eater sit around a lot and are then asked to be taxed for a short period of time.  Here are a few tips that I used and a video describing for how I solved my issues and got my yard back into shape for under $15 in parts.

First thing is to get clean gas to the carburetor and after a long winter the gas could be bad so I went to Amazon to get a fresh gas tank assembly for about $11 and it comes with a new fuel filter to keep the new clean gas getting smoothly to the carburetor.  I show in the video below exactly how to use a Torx driver to install the new tank assembly in just a matter of minutes.

Secondly I noticed that the HI and LO adjustment screws on the Ryobi carburetor did not have a flat head screw like I was accustomed to and actually required a special tool to adjust.  I solved this issue by using the blade from a hack saw and gently cutting the housing that surrounds the two posts and eventually also cutting into the posts themselves to create a slot in each post for a flat head screw driver. I have a photo up close of the results after about 30 minutes of slow work.  By the way wear some thick leather gloves to hold the hack saw blade in your bare hands while making these notches. Then the HI and LO settings could be adjusted with a small flat head screw driver.  I adjusted the HI setting to get the weed eater to start under CHOKE condition.  Then I could adjust the LO setting to keep it from shutting off at idle.  Then I readjusted the HI to get a nice smooth high RPM for edging.  You can always read more details online about how to tune the carburetor. I hope that you have found this blog informative and that it helps you to do the work yourself, save some money and increase your homes value by having a perfectly edged lawn without having to buy a new weed-eater when it just needed service.  I am not a small engine mechanic.  I am a real estate agent and a  mechanical engineer, thus The Relocation Engineer to Engineer your next move.  I help sell Franklin TN homes and educate buyers and sellers in Franklin on the market conditions as well as how to increase the values of their homes when it is time to sell.
