Question about Homelite 'Yard Broom' Leaf Blower

Homelite ht 17 hedge trimmer won't stay running

The only way this motor will run is if it's primed thriugh the carb and then dies after that burns off,,,don;t know if the primer bulb isn't working right or if maybe the black diaphram how gotten too old and effecting it or an internal carb problem. This trimer was given to my son and don't know what has been done to it, if possible can you tell what the turns out are for the low and high mixture screws? Can't find any manuals for it.

Homelite support page was no help.    Usually with these small engines you start the needle placment by lightly seatign the needles all the way in and then  1and 1/2 turns out.    That is enough to get the engine started, then ajusted while running almost always father in. Idel jet at idle , of course and high speed jet under load,if possible. I would start with the carb first as that is the most likely problem.

Wat is mix ratio for homelit ht-17 hedge trimmer????


If ever in doubt, always run them on a 25-1 fuel oil mix, this is good for any small two stroke engine, always use a good two stroke oil designed for use in chainsaws, not out board oil.

Homelite hedge trimmer , motor runs but blades do


Had the same problem: when I turn on the trimmer, the motor would hum but the blades won't move.
What I did:
1. Sprayed a ton of wd40 between the blades
2. Took a screwdriver and kinda wedged it between the blades to get them unstuck. Also removed some guck between the blades.
And it worked!

My Homelite 26 HT Hedge Trimmer is stubborn to start and then only runs on Full Choke at full throttle, but not smoothly. Whats up with this?


Jets in carb are dirty. Take carb off and clean, blow out all jets, you may have to use thin wire to get all gunk out. Also fuel line might be dry rotted. Put carb back on and adjust settings on carb.
