Hello jay9898,

Sometimes manufactures will update parts for some of the machines. This may have happened in your case. In answer to either installing the 530071517 Repair kit, versus installing the new 530071629 carburetor. If you want to save some time, the new carburetor will take less time installing on your machine, than installing the repair kit and cleaning the existing carburetor.

Question: Fuel Pickup Assembly In Gas Tank

Found the Fuel Pickup Assy floating freely in the Gas tank of the WeedEater FL1500LE Blower, without any connection to the fuel lines.
Is the fuel pickup assy to be connected to the fuel line or is it just floating freely without any connection in the fuel tank?
If it needs to be fixed back to the fuel line in the gas tank, any suggestions of "how-to" ?

Thanks

Hello rarin2din,

There is couple of options you have to your situation. You could replace the fuel lines and fuel filter on your engine. We have an article and video on how to do this. Here is a link to the article. How to Replace Trimmer Fuel Lines and Filter. Or you can simply replace the fuel tank assembly, part number 545103903 . It includes the new fuel lines,fuel filter and new cap.

Hope this helps,

Your carburetor may need a gasket and diaphragm kit installed. They are cheap and easy to install. This cures some fuel problems, but not all.

It goes on the small line. It takes some effort, but you can use a little WD40 to help get it on.

The install article is well done, as I have done a few of these repairs myself. But on an older Echo starter, when you put the rope in the pulley, the knot to lock it will be UNDER the pulley, not on the top, making it a much trickier repair.

Hi fasesq,

That sounds like a carburetor issue. Either it is plugged with debris or the internal parts have become hard and brittle with age. If it is just plugged you can try cleaning it. If the parts have failed with age then you will need to replace the carb as there is no rebuild kit offered. The new carburetor is part #530071629. If want to try cleaning the carb we have an article and video that will help you out. You can find it here...

Reply: Fl1500le Fuel Pickup

Pour out the gas and you should be able to shake it out. You may need to replace the fuel lines if they are rotten or brittle. You can pull the fuel line out of the tank with a hook made out of a paper clip. The fuel pickup goes on the smaller of the two fuel lines.

The one on the FL1500 is connected to the cylinder with strong springs. You will have to remove the TOP engine cover to access it and probably the bottom cover too. The springs are pretty strong so get a good grip!

Question: Fuel System

Martin

What is the proper depth to put the two fuel lines that go into the tank (small & large)? My lines rotted and had to be replaced, but I can't seem to place them correctly to get the primer ball to work. I assume that the existing larger line is the return fuel and the smaller is the draw and works off of vacuum when pushing fuel out the larger exit line.

The large line goes into the tank no more than 3/4". The small line should have the filter on it and enough slack to reach either side of the fuel tank.

The fuel line that has the filter on the end should be plenty long enough to lay on the bottom of the tank at the farthest point. The return fuel line only has to enter the tank far enough so that it will not pull out. Say one-half inch or so.

Question: Drive Shaft Fl 1500 Le

(1) The diagrams supplied do not depict the drive shaft and sleeves that are a part of this unit.
(2) There are 2 sleeves on the engine drive shaft between the blower assembly and the engine. One of the sleeves is around 3" or so long while the other, which fits over this 3" long sleeve, is only around one inch long. I cannot locate this on your parts diagram of this unit. Please advise.

One noticeable difference between Types 1-3 and Types 4-7 is the gasket kit used (different style and part number) and Types 4-7 utilize a Foam Air dam between the carb and cylinder where Types 1-3 do not. Look closely at the pics and part numbers.

I have the fl1500le. I want to replace the fuel line. There are two clear lines going through holes in the gas tank. The larger one looks like it goes to the fuel pick up and lays at the bottom of the tank. Now once I push the thinner hose through the tank, what does that get connected to?

The small hose protrudes about a 1/2 inch into tank and connects to nothing. The larger hose connects to the fuel pick up, which lays in the bottom of the fuel tank.

Which carburetor do I order? There are 7 models for the fl1500.

Reply: Witch One

The older models do not have a trigger control for throttle and use a Zama or Walbro carb with a manual throttle lever. (choke lever is optional). Newer models may have the throttle cable. If you inspect the carb you have you should be able to match it to one that is compatible on the machine. Remember the manual throttle lever on a carb is red and the manual choke lever is blue.

Question: I Forgot To Add The Oil

bo barry

I forgot it was 2 cycle and ran it a period without any oil.
Now it barely starts, runs a few seconds, and won't restart - until later.
Is only the piston ring bad, or should I just put it in the dumpster?

Thanks
Bo
Mark
Reply: I Forgot To Add The Oil

Mark

Hi Bo,

Unfortunately running an engine without oil, even for a short time, usually causes a great deal of damage. I most cases you will find damage to the piston and rings, the cylinder, the connecting rod journal, and the crankshaft. If damaged, all of these parts would need to be replaced.

I hope this helps with your repair!

Question: Tool For Adjusting Carb.

Roger Paris

Is a special tool needed to adjust the carburetor after the gasket and diaphragm are replaced?
Mark
Reply: Tool For Adjusting Carb.

Mark

Hi Roger,

Your machine has an "EPA" carburetor. Starting in 1997 The EPA placed requirements on how clean small engines are required to burn. As part of this restriction the carburetors are set at the factory. The carb then either has the adjustment ports capped or they use special adjustment screws so that the carb can only be adjusted by a tech trained in compliance with the EPA directives. The manufacture offers the special carb adjustment tools their authorized repair shops but not to the general public. The manufacture is liable to ensure that the equipment they sell complies with the EPA directive and therefore will typically not offer the adjustment tools for sale to the general public. You can learn more about the EPA emissions requirements for small engines at the following link...

As is common with most small engines, the plug wire is not a separate item, but is part of the ignition coil assembly. The ignition coil is part #530039163 and is available from http://www.ereplacementparts.com .

Question: Weedeater Blower(gas)

Have model FL1500i There are two plastic tubes from the gas tank to the engine. Pieces have fallen off in the tank. Why two supply tubes from gas tank and how should they be configured?

Reply: Weedeater Blower(gas)

Cut the end at angle try pushing thru into tank far enough to reach in with long nose pliers and pull enough thru to attach filter lightly grease the tubes first. Plan B. Push a small wire thru the tube and insert it thru into the tank pull gently with grease on tube the line with the gas flow back into the tank is the vent the filter line hooks to the top of the carb. Take the top plate off the carb, only 2 screws, and blow out the small screen most likely it will be stopped up. Hope this works for you. Good luck.

The fuel pickup goes on the smaller of the two fuel lines. The larger line just protrudes about 1/4 to 1/2" into the tank. A small plastic piece connects to the end so it won't pull back out. You can pull the hoses out of the tank with a small hook fashioned out of a paper clip. Once you have the pieces on the tubes you can push them back in the tank. You may need to replace the fuel lines if they are brittle.

Thanks for the info.
I cannot believe that my fuel lines are 24 years old, or that the EaterofWeeds is that age...its nearly as new, but still no compression, IMO.
I'll try the pro route, a screw in gage. The finger also works but is not noted for accuracy.
And , IMO, its a good/excellent quality unit, even if its "featherlite".

I am having carburetor problems with a Poulan / Weed Eater FL1500. I tried the suggested instructions given me under the thread Ryobi Brushcutter Carb Troubles, but the machine would not start with the single mixture screw two turns out. It starts and runs at SIX turns out, but it is hard to start and sometimes bogs down.

What is the correct compression reading for these engines? I have two Weed Eater FL1500 blowers - the one I spoke of before and a newer one that has only 40 psi of compression! It will barely try to start with starting fluid. While looking through other threads about Weed Eater machines, I saw one in which the machine read 25 psi on the gauge because it had a worn piston ring. I will take my machine apart to see if it has this same problem.

I took apart the carburetor of my first blower (the one I spoke of in my last post) and found the screen covered in gray sediment. It was so covered I could not see the screen. It has a new fuel filter in the tank, but has had this happen several times before. Any suggestions as to where the sediment is coming from?
