    I have a stihl 100rx weed-eater ,which just had a new carb put on it . The weed-eater floods between lawns. Does anyone have this problem? How do you fix it?

    Make sure that the powerhead is upright in the rack, just like it would be if it was laying on the ground.

    Happened to my Honda HHT31 also. I had carb problem, change a carb. It ran good for 20 minutes and the idle rpm drop to the point of stalling out. Then it won't start anymore until cooling. I had been struggling for a few months until I finally open up the old carb, clear the blockage and put it back on. That solve all problem. I opened the new carb and can't see anything wrong.
