I have a 4 cycle weed eater (no oil/gas mixing) and yesterday I was using it
for awhile, then I had to stop to put a new string on. When I started it
back up, it was hot and began smoking badly. I shut it off and waited a bit
(did some mowing) and then came back to it to check the oil in it. The oil
seemed fine. When I started it back up, there was a little smoke, but when
it went on its way again working fine.
Can these things simply get overheated if revved too much?
Is this likely what caused the smoke?
Any other ideas?
I've had it for about 2-3 years now and have changed the oil about a year
ago on it...
