    This trimmer won't idle, but runs fine. I tried adjusting the idle screw, but no luck. Any suggestions?

    Spray wd-40 around the intake seals while the trimmer is running. If there is an air leak / bad seal then the sound it makes will change. No 2 stroke will idle if there is an air leak leaning out the mixture.

    I thought this looked familiar I was the last person to post on that thread.
    Post your engine#'s see if falls into the warranty range.
