    The problem I have is, it starts up ok but as soon as I pull on the throttle it dies.

    does it start to bog out like theres a heavy load or restriction on the motor or does it not react to the throttle at all?

One possible problem is the cable clamp is loose, allowing it to slip. Check to see if the throttle is functioning.

Why when I pull the cord, the trimmer doesnot turn


Will not turn if it is clutch driven. When motor starts and revs are up it will turn provided the clutch is working correctly.

How do I adjust the float to get more gas. bring the float up higher or lower the the float?


Lowering the float allows the fuel to enter. As the float rises, the needle valve is depressed, cutting off the fuel.

How fix a gas line break at gas tank?


Using needle nose pliers slip the split line off the connection and pull out of the gas tank. If there is a filter on the end you need to extract through the gas cap opening. Purchase another gas line either in a repair kit or individual line and cut to fit. If the filter is bad, use a new kit. Insert through the gas cap opening and pull up through the supply line opening. Be sure the connection is clean then slip the new line onto the clean connection.

Cutting head on 29cc trimmer will not stop rotating at idle,cleaned filter,changed oil, cleaned spark arrester, tried adjusting idle speed, nothing seemed to help


You didn' t list the model number. Have you tried placing the head on the grass? does it stop then? It has a centrifugal clutch, if the idle speed is too fast, it will spin. There could be a broken spring or dirt in the clutch keeping it engaged.

358-791010 2 cycle starts bur engine runs so fast...Is there an adjustment? Also, I have no owners manual, that would be very benificial.


There is an idle adjustment screw that adjusts the idle speed of the weed whacker on the carburetor.
Look for the throttle cable, and there should be a screw adjustment in the area where the throttle cable hooks to the carburetor. It will normally adjust with a screwdriver, turn the screw one way and see if it speeds up, if so then adjust the screw the other way to slow the idle speed down.
I hope this helps,

Homelite 2-cycle gas line-trimmer - It starts okay but when you hit the throttle it dies.


The high speed jet is either out of adjustment or it is plugged. There should be a screws with H (high speed) and L (low speed, idle) You could try to open the high speed adjustment on the carb or run your machine on partial choke if you have to.
