Why does my weed eater have a flooded engine on a cold start?
Is it normal for the weed eater to have a flooded engine on a cold start?
The weed eater is brand new. I really hope it is not the result of me mixing the gas with the 2 cycle incorrectly
I don’t think I have mixed it wrong

There are no needle and seats in a 2-stroke small displacement weedeater. Not normal!! Get it repaired under warranty.

Is the Fuel good?, Was it stored upright? Is the fuel line clean & clear? Is the Plug gap correct?
I got tired of Gasoline machines, No more fire or explosion worry, don't fret about winter layover, bad fuel nor oil. No Spark Plug servicing.
Changed all my gardening tools to Battery Power EGO system.

Most likely the needle and seat are leaking and the crankcase is filling up with fuel when it sits for a few days. It will blow a lot of smoke for a while and then clear up. Next time you run it, dump the fuel out of the tank when you are done and see if it still doers it next time you start it.
