How do i adjust my idle crew


The idle screw isn't as important as the low/high setting on the carb. Start with one turn out on both low and high side settings.

Homelite Might Lite 26ss starts up but wont run for more than 20 seconds when idling and floods out when you give it throttle. i checked the fuel filter even ran it without the filter does the same thing....


I think with the symptoms that you are having, that you need to 1. Remove the carburetor 2. Inspect/Replace fuel filter and fuel lines 3.Disassemble and Clean the carburetor 4. Possibly install a new gasket and diaphragm kit or a complete rebuild kit.

Turn the set screws all way in.
Back them out 1 1/4 turn start it up let it warm up then adjust them in up to 1/8.
Depending on how it runs.

It runs normally at high revs but dies on idle


the units came out with EPA carb's some have idle screw adjustment and preset high jet, or the other way depending on the unit. try and change the fuel, use only high octane fuel for 2 cyc no ethanol with fresh oil mix, run for about 5 to 10 min's. if your carb has adjustment screws set your low side idle screw but still change the fuel.

Make sure the carb settings are correct. Screw both tuning screws all the way in and then turn ot anticlockwise the following settings H 3/4 of a turn, L 1 full turn. (this is set to the standard setting)

Hard to start


Hello judy_keough2:

>>The Following is the Instruction File for Setting the Air Mixture Screws. Any Input is Appreciated. The Procedure is the Same for 1 or 2 Mixture Screws, Just Use the Instruction File and Skip Over the Section with the Missing Mixture Screw ( Usually the H Mixture Screw).
>>Now Setting the Air Mixture Screws:
>>****Turn the Idle Air (L) and Main Air (H) Mixture Screws In Until SNUG **Do Not Jam** Then Reverse Both Screws 1 1/2 Turns. Set the Throttle Full Open, Start the Engine.
>>Turn the Main Air (H) Mixture Screw Clockwise Until Proper Revs are Obtained. **Carefully Use your Finger and Move the Governor Arm to Rev the Engine (on Chainsaws and Trimmers Use the Trigger to Rev the Engine) Until you Reach Max RPMs (on Chainsaws and Trimmers, the RPMs are Not Set to MAX. Set to Max and then Reverse the Setting Screw 1/4 or 1/2 Turn. If the H Mixture Screw is Set too High; the Engine will be Starved for the Oil in the Gas and Damage the Piston and Jug/Cylinder) and the Engine is Running Proper at Full Throttle Up a Grade and for Chainsaws and Trimmers they Do Not Bog DOwn Under a Load. Occasionally you May have to Turn this Counter Clockwise to Achieve the Proper Revs.**
>>Now Allow the Engine to Idle. Set the Engine Idle Screw (Not Idle Air) so the Engine will Stay Running if Required.
>>Now Set the Idle Air (L) Mixture Screw so there is No Hesitation when Rapidly Throttling from Idle to Full Throttle. Reset the Engine Idle if Required.****
Please, Do Not Hesitate, If I Missed Something or you Hit a Snag or this Does Not Correct the Problem, I am Here if You Require More Assistance.
Hope this Helps. Let me Know What Happens, Please. May the All Mighty Bless You and Yours. Be Safe and Be Happy. Thanks.

Good Luck

Respectfully
