Question: TE475 Slow Head Spin
I've had carburettor problems with my weedeater and just about got it to run - but only with the throttle wide open...
After the latest carb reassembly, the head is no longer spinning fast enough to trim anything! It could maybe give the weeds a good tickle, but won't cut...
Reply: TE475 Slow Head Spin
I don't know if you cleaned your carburetor, It sounds as if it may be clogged in one of the small orifices or dirty. We have an article and video on How to Clean a 2 Cycle Engine Carburetor. Hopefully this will get it going again. You may also want to replace the 530095656 fuel pick-up assembly(fuel filter)

Question: Hard To Start
After my TE475 does start, it will only run in full choke. If I advance it to 1/2 choke it will die.
Reply: Hard To Start
Had the same problem, finally figured out that my fuel line was breaking at the point of where it enters the fuel tank. Was getting a lean mix unless the choke was partially on.
