Sorry Steve I did not see that he was stating the issue with the primer bulb. I thought he had low power. Most of the time it's a cab kit that will take care of a bulb issue.

thoght maybe i could find my problem in this thread..
just got a new efco trimmer..300$ trimmer
few hours on it
let it warm up before trimming at a house..
picked it up..
died

tried starting..nothing
tried again..nothing
tried cold star..nothing

took out spark plug to see if it was flooded..not really..let it dry anyways..
put plug back in..nothing

got a new plug and put it in..nothing

tested to see if it has spark
IT DOES...OW

took off the carb to clean it out..still nothing..

any suggestions? id hate to take it in to get repaired but i ran out of ideas..

If it's got spark, the next thing I would be concerned with is if it's getting fuel in there. Is it possible something in the carb is clogged?

well first off test the spark, you can look to make sure the coil is fireing with an in-line or even an inductive tester, or you can also test with a voltage tester PET-4000 is what we use. was your plug wet when you pulled it out?
