Question about Homelite Consumer Products 4.0 Amp, 13 In. Trimmer
Sounds like the primer plate is bad or the check valve in the carb is bad. Its cheaper to just replace the carb. George

Sometimes even if the diaphram and gaskets look ok they may not be. If the diaphram is stretched or distorted even a little they wont work properly,same for gaskets and other parts of the carb. sometimes the littlest things can make a big difference. I would try a complete rebuild kit and while everything is out of the carb. spray the carb real good and then lite-ly blow out the carb. with an air hose also if you take a twist tie from bread and take off half of the paper from the wire and carefully probe all holes in carb. that might do the trick for ya. After you put the high and low adjustment needles back in (if your zama carb. is set up with them) you'll want to set the low needle (after turning all the way in till it just bottoms) at 1 and 1/4 turns out and the high at just about 1and 1/2 turns out, then while running make final adjustments.
