How do I start an homelite whipper snipper model f2020 this one I have never started from new it's about 3 years old could be older it's never even had any fuel in it up to now

First make sure the on/off has tried in both directions. Even here in the shop I sometimes forget to set those switches that don't have the momentary off postion.

Then if still doesn't start then I would treat it as if run at sometime and go thru the basic troubleshooting of a won't start engine.

  • Check for spark. No equals ignition problems.

  • If you have spark then
  • Try putting a little fuel mix in the cylinder via the spark plug hole to see it will try to start. if tries to start then carburetion problems. Yes even with an used carburetor.
  • If still don't try to start then check for compression and timing related problems.

Gas weed trimer will not stay running/clean gas lines/new fuel gas fillter/new gas/oil

Try checking the sparkplug wire. They sometimes get loose and don't make good contact. Clean the contact, if it is corroded, clean with a wire brush. The Spark plug may need to be replaced, be sure a new spark plug has the right gap size (you can adjust that yourself). Beyond that, I would take it in for servicing.
If it still does not keep running, check for leaking lines. If there are air leaks around the carborator, it will run rough and not for long. Hope that helps.

How to proceed starting a homelite weed trimer for the first time in over eight years.

hello sir, my machine will only start when pumping primmer bulb or squirting fluid in the carburetor than stops. the fuel line has broken off, in most small carburetors this is a ongoing problem.old fuel will crystallize when left in tank for a long time.plugging up ports, fuel lines, small screen in carburetor.fuel lines will dissolve clogging carb.this is why it will run when the choke is on creating a vacuum to where there is fuel forced in the carb to rum,also the gas will evaporate leaving the oil behind clogging up carb.the thing to do is remove carb. and clean out,replacing gaskets or fuel line if necessary.use carb cleaner to clean out carb.make sure to make note where fuel line go.the fuel filter broke off of fuel line letting debris get in carb plugging it up.the muffler is known to clog up a lot on these machines where they want run. the compression should be 60 to 120 lbs any thing below 60 is junk. when adjusting the carb screws turn in all the way than turnout 1 1/4 turns turn in slow until machine runs also you need to check for spark by removing plug and grounding against engine to check spark, ok.a new spark plug would be a good ideal too , if you are going to make these repairs use new fuel line and filter,hope this helps,any comments welcome,thank you, @@
