Question about Homelite Consumer Products MightyLite Handheld Gas Blower with Quicker, Easier Starting
Every time start it with ether, it starts and then it dies. I checked the spark plug and put tIhe right mix in it ,but it still dies and acts like it doesn't get gas. I also checked the air filter and sprayed carb and choke cleaner in it (nothing).
First of all NEVER use ether on any 2 stroke engine . it sounds like u have a carb thats clogged but be for u do n e thing u r going to have to do a compression test on the unit .it needs to be a min of 130 psi if its below that u need to replace the piston rings and cylinder head . u might wanna get a new one if thats the case! when u have a 2 stroke its very important that the gas mixture is perfect and u have to shake the gas be for u use it . that will make the unit last 4 a long time ehter will kill the machine fast

Tips for a great answer:
Either that season's gas dried in the carburetor affecting it's operation or you are drawing air through a fuel seal somewhere. Both are common with this model. Sometimes will start from cold and run up to half speed until you take the choke off. Then it just dies from not drawing gas. Status proved if it revs up if sprayed with short blip of ether from 7" away at the moment it dies. Do not try to keep it running on ether more than a minute. Like pure gas, it'll burn up the engine or worst. Do not use ether if the air is not moving. Ether may collect and explode.
