    Today my Redmax trimmer was running great. Then after lunch it decided not to run. Starts up and u give it gas and bogs and dies. Anybody have any clues. I tried loosening the gas cap to see if it was vent but still did it. Don't know...Help!

    Take off the muffler and check for carbon plugged screen.

    Yep, probably some carbon fell off and clogged the screen. It also will hardly idle if this is the case. I just take the screens off. If you want to keep it. Take the muffler off and spray it with brake cleaner to dissolve the carbon, then put it back of trimmer after it dries. My Shindiawa edger had this problem the other day. That was the first time in two years, so off with the screen. IT's screaming again.
