it sounds like the filter on the fule line is cloged try to remove the filter and then try to prime the trimmer. it it does you need to replace the filter. just about any filter that will fit will do.

SOURCE: I have a problem with my homelite ut-20046. It

Run some combustion chamber cleaner (not carb cleaner) through the carb with the air filter off.

Your main jet is partially clogged and it needs a richer air / fuel ratio to run - hence, why the choke needs to be all or partially on.

Hope this helps!

Homelite ut-08068-r leaf blower leaking fuel


If we are talking about a hand held leaf blower. The fuel leaking from the carb is likely caused by a stiff metering diaghram holding the needle open. Rebuild your carb ( I suggest also replacing the fuel lines and primer bulb while you are at it) and double check the lever adjustment.

My chainsaw (Homelite UT10514) will not prime fuel. I have changed the primer bulb and checked the fuel lines for damage, they seem to be in good shape.


You need to make sure the lines are connected properly to the bulb. Also, if the carburetor diaphragms are not working properly the carburetor will not prime.

My chain saw 14" homelite


primers pull fuel from the carb and dumps it back into the tank, so if the bulb will not prime the chances are the fuel filter in the tank is blocked, pull the fuel hose through the filer hole and replace the filter on the end.

When I push the bulb to prime the weedeater nothing happens.


It helps to know the purpose and function of the purge/primer bulb. It is designed to draw fresh fuel out of the fuel tank (line with in-tank fuel filter) and send it directly to the fuel pump side of the carburetor. Also, it's vacuum effect helps out it's next function of drawing any air/old fuel out of the carburetor from the metering chamber and sending it back to the fuel tank after it passes thru the bulb itself. This is how a remote primer bulb functions. It doesn't have to be completely full of fuel for the engine to run either.
So, you need to check 1. The fuel filter in the gas tank 2. The condition of the fuel line connected to that filter (the line should be soft and clear, not yellow and brittle). 3. The status of the fuel inlet on the carburetor (open). 4. The condition of the fuel line from the carb to the primer bulb
5. The condition of the primer bulb and its' plastic fittings. (the bulb shouldn't have any cracks or be severely discolored . These things apply whether the bulb is a stand alone type or mounted on carb type.
Carburetor mounted bulbs develop their own unique problems of operation due to the check valves that control fuel flow below them in the primer base assembly of the carburetor. Those valves are fragile and sometimes fail (strong solvents and high air pressure ruin them) and the fuel doesn't move back and forth properly causing carburetor malfunction.

HOMELITE EXPAND IT 26VT WON'T RUN


Well if you are missing parts?...No. How could anyone from where we sit. But the fact that it starts with starting fluid is a great sign however. First off, Fresh gas/oil mix is A MUST! No getting around that. OK first, when you pull the throttle (Give 'er gas) does the little lever at the carburetor move back and forth at all? if yes, then what happens when you hit the primer bulb? Does it push/**** fuel from the tank? (My homelite spits fuel out to the ground when I prime the bulb, most spit it back to the fuel tank however) See if priming it moves fuel. You should see a trail of bubbles in the fuel tubing. You have to see if you are getting fuel at all first. Then does it maintain the prime? If not? Then the primer bulb will usually remain empty. A good prime should always show a half full or 100% full bulb at all times. Let me know what we got so far.

PRIMER BULB WONT PRIME


I would recheck the carburetor to make sure you put the diaphragms next to the carburetor and not the gaskets.
Please if it is not priming you may have the fuel lines hooked up wrong. Also check the fuel cap to make sure the vent assembly is there. If the tank is not venting, the tank will get a vacuum in it not allowing fuel to flow.

Good Day.
